The Fire Industry Association (FIA) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 'Built Environment Fantasy Premier League,' a captivating event that brings together those working in the fire, construction, building control, property management/maintenance, architecture, or design sectors. This fascinating effort, organised by Adexon, aims to bring together experts from the sector in a friendly yet competitive setting, creating networking opportunities and enjoyment.

About the Event

The Built Environment Fantasy Premier League kicks off on Friday, 11th August 2023, and is set to run until Sunday, 19th May 2024. This developed time frame gives competitors plenty of opportunity to plan, compete, and showcase their football management skills. The ultimate prize, however, is the attraction of the competition: two tickets to the UEFA Champions League Final, which will be held at the legendary Wembley Stadium. 

The event's accessibility is one of its most notable features. Individuals who are interested in joining the league can do so at any time throughout the competition, ensuring that the enthusiasm and challenge remain accessible to new players throughout the season.

How to Play?

The Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is a beloved virtual football game that enables enthusiasts to curate their dream team’s comprising actual Premier League players. Managers take on each other in a bid to earn points, and the game is available both on the web and via mobile applications, offering maximum convenience to all participants.

With a budget of £100 million, managers are tasked with assembling an attractive team to play each week. The typical lineup includes one goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders, and two forwards. Points are allocated based on various criteria, including goals scored, assists, clean sheets, saves, bonus points, and captaincy points, enhancing the strategic dimension of the competition.

The 2023–24 FPL season includes an incredible 38 game weeks, putting the players' managing abilities to the test. At the end of this football journey, the manager with the most points will be announced the winner, a tribute to their hard planning and strategic ability to win.
