Registration for McDonald’s 2010 FIFA World Cup Fantasy is now open, with the game launch date set for 4 June. Until then, read the rules, register and prepare!


This week, coaches formally handed in their provisional squads for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, a move that sent many fans into a fever as they agonised over squad inclusions and exclusions.


For fantasy managers, the announcement means that it’s time to register your fantasy teams and prepare for the launch of the McDonald’s 2010 FIFA World Cup Fantasy game on 4 June. The game launch takes place shortly after the announcement of the final 23-man squads for all participating 2010 FIFA World Cup teams. To register your fantasy team now, click on the 'Register for Fantasy' link to the right of this article.


The Grand Prize for the overall winner of McDonald’s 2010 FIFA World Cup Fantasy is a Kia car. There will also be tons of prizes up for grabs up in each of the sevens rounds.


Please ensure you have registered a team and joined the Coldplaying league by Noon, 11th June 2010 to start gaining points from the outset.




Fantasy football is a game based around picking a squad of football players competing in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Finals. When your selected players play in a 2010 FIFA World Cup™ match, you will score points depending on their performance. The 2010 FIFA World Cup™ consists of a group stage where 32 teams are split into 8 groups, with each team playing three matches. The top two from each group then go through to the knockout stage of which there are 4 rounds – a round of 16 through to the final. For more information on the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Finals click here.


The McDonald's FIFA World Cup Fantasy game is made up of seven rounds of matches. Just like the actual World Cup winners, your fantasy team will have to perform well over seven rounds of action to triumph!


The 2010 FIFA World Cup™ squads are to be announced on 4th June 2010 – One week before the start of the tournament. Once they have been announced, you will be able to start selecting the players to form your fantasy squad. Prior to this date you will be able to choose your team name.

Way too drunk to attempt to sort out a team right now but will do soon.

I got my team picked. But that site will only allow you to play the 4-4-2? That sucks! I wanna play the 2-5-3 :bigcry:

rules say you can change it:


To change the team formation, simply select your chosen eleven players on the My Team page. The computer will automatically choose your formation based on the players you have selected. Valid formations are:


  • 3-5-2
  • 3-4-3
  • 4-4-2
  • 4-3-3
  • 4-5-1
  • 5-3-2
  • 5-4-1

In real soccer, I can't imagine a 2-5-3 ever being advantageous. I personally prefer the standard 4-5-2, but it really depends on your players. For this game though, your formation doesn't really matter at all I believe...
