Fantasy football is back: Excitement builds for the inaugural SBC League of Legends

When Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow night, it not only marks the start of the 26th Premier League season, it also kicks off the inaugural fantasy football ‘SBC League of Legends’ competition.

For those of us that fancy ourselves as an armchair Antonio Conte, or an undiscovered Unai Emery, tomorrow sees weeks of diligent research and attentive analysing come to fruition.

SBC’s fantasy football league, ‘The SBC League of Legends’, brings together a host of industry experts all looking to have their team’s ingenious and original name carved onto the metaphoric trophy in May.

Furthermore, a weekly analysis of everything happening in the league and a regular look at the potentially big point scorers for the week ahead will be updated in SBC’s fantasy football roundup, every Monday.

The opening week always brings about a vast amount of questions, with fantasy football managers up and down the country examining which of the summer’s big money signings will succeed. Is it worth spending the extra half a million on Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette than Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata?

Premier League newboys Brighton broke their transfer record to sign Dutch midfielder Davy Propper, but at £5.5 million could he earn you a ‘proper nice’ amount of fantasy football points?

Have you tormented at Pep’s lucrative defensive summer signings or found yourself bemused by Jose’s unhinged faith in Lukaku? Then fear not, as it’s not too late to give yourself a chance of winning the prestigious ‘SBC League of Legends.’
