How to Play

Creating your team  
Every football team you build on Dream11 has to have 11 players, of which a maximum of 7 players can be from any one team playing the real-life match.
Player Combinations
Your Dream11 can have different combinations of players, but has to be within the 100 credit cap and must qualify the following team selection criteria:
Player Type Min Max
Goalkeeper 1 1
Defender 3 5
Midfielder 3 5
Forward 1 3

Captain and Vice-Captain Points

Once you have selected your 11 players, you will have to assign a captain and vice-captain for your team.
The captain will give you 2x points scored by them in the actual match.
The vice-captain will give you 1.5x points scored by them in the actual match.
The Captained By (% C By) and Vice-Captained By (% VC By) stats help you understand how other players have chosen their teams.
Choose a popular pick as captain, or find a differential to score big against your competition.

Fantasy Points System  
Scored by a striker
Scored by a mid-fielder
Scored by a defender or goalkeeper
Chance CreatedThe final pass leading to a shot (on target including goals, blocked or off target)
Shot on Target Includes Goals
5 Passes Completed
  • A Direct Assist is the final touch (pass, cross or any other touch) leading to the recipient of the ball scoring a goal.
  • In addition to normal assists, the following types of Fantasy Assists will be awarded to a player:
    • a)
      When a shot is saved by goalkeeper, blocked by the opposition player or hits the goal post, and is scored on the rebound
    • b)
      When a player wins a penalty or a direct free-kick that is scored
    • c)
      When an opposition player scores an own goal off a cross, pass or shot
  • A Chance Created, also known as a 'key pass', is the final touch (pass, cross or any other touch) leading to a shot, regardless of whether it is on target (including goals), blocked or off target.
  • Note: If a player gets points for a Fantasy Assist, they will not be awarded points for a Chance Created. For example, if a player's shot is saved by a goalkeeper and is scored on the rebound, the player will get points for a Shot on Target and Fantasy Assist, but won't earn points for Chance Created.
  • A Shot on Target is any goal attempt that:
    • a)
      Is a goal
    • b)
      Would have been a goal but was saved by the goalkeeper or was stopped by an opposition player who is the last-man (with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal)
  • A shot on target in NOT awarded when:
    • a)
      The shot hits the goal post (unless the ball goes in and is a goal)
    • b)
      The shot is blocked by another player, who is not the last-man
  • If player A passes the ball to player B, who then scores, then player B is awarded a Goal and a Shot on Target, while player A is awarded an Assist and Chance Created
