Footstock Returns to Football!

With next week finally marking our return to football, as promised here’s some more details on the various items announced earlier this week!


Net Market Spend Bonus 📈

The bonus period runs from 00:01 Monday 15th June to 23:59 Thursday 18th June. Players will receive 10% of their net market spend during this period as tournament credits.

Example – John spends £200 on the market during the qualifying period. John sells £100 on the market during the qualifying period. His net market spend is therefore (£200-£100) = £100. John will receive £10 (10% of his net market spend) in tournament credits.

All bonuses will be credited on 19th June. The maximum bonus earning is £500 in tournament credits.


64-man Roulette Tournaments 🎲

One 64-man roulette tournament will run each day from 15th June to 18th June. Each morning during that period, there will be a Twitter poll to decide which player Footstock will enter into the 64-man roulette. Each afternoon, the tournament will be announced on Twitter and launched shortly thereafter in the 16+ roulette tournaments section. Should the card entered by Footstock win the tournament, we will run another shortly thereafter until a user wins.


Return of the £10k Freeroll 💸

The £10k freeroll will be relisted on Monday 15th June, and can be entered up to the end of gameweek 34. The only changes made to the format are the fixtures, everything else is as per the initial rules.

The two fixtures on 17th June will not be included as they are rescheduled from earlier gameweeks: as per initial rules they are excluded from the tournament. The tournament itself shows how the remaining nine gameweeks are broken up.


The Footstock World Championship 💰

A free entry into the Footstock World Championship will be provided to anyone who wins a multi-game real football tournament between 17th June and 25th July. This will not include single-match tournaments or virtual tournaments. In case of a tie, all tied winners will receive free entry to the World Championship. Initially, winners will be tracked manually, but within the next month an entry will be added to their account once the tournament is listed.

The maximum number of entries is five; there will be nothing further provided to a user once they’ve already won five entries. Paid entries will also be allowed into the World Championship for £100, again with a maximum of five entries. No user will be able to enter the Footstock World Championship more than five times.

Key point to note – To ensure no entries are missed, please do not change usernames during the remainder of the Premier League season. Any wins that can’t be reconciled due to username changes will not be provided an entry. If you want to change your username please do so before 17th June.


Footstock Hero 💪

The new Footstock Hero challenge will run from 17th June to 26th July. Included are all paid-entry, multi-game real football tournaments during that period. The virtual tournaments and single-game tournaments will not count, and nor will freerolls. Points will be scored as follows across all tournament levels (Beginner, Amateur, Pro):

1st-place finish (incl. ties)10 points
2nd-place finish (incl. ties)5 points
3rd-place finish (incl. ties)3 points
4th-place finish (incl. ties)2 points
5th-place finish (incl. ties)1 point

A regular weekly leaderboard will be provided on social media and Slack. After the Footstock World Championship on 26th July, all users’ points totals will be summed up and the winners announced.

Overall prizes as follows:
1st placeAny player card plus a football shirt of their choice
2nd placeA player card up to ‘Rare’ (3-star) category plus a football shirt of their choice
3rd placeA player card of their choice up to ‘Rare’ (3-star) category
4th and 5th placeA player card of their choice up to ‘Common’ (2-star) category
6th to 10th place£10 tournament credit

Key point to note – To ensure no entries are missed, please do not change usernames during the remainder of the Premier League season. Any wins that can’t be reconciled due to username changes will not be provided. If you want to change your username please do so before 17th June.


If you thought Footstock was fun during the Premier League’s hiatus, you’ve seen nothing yet.

As always, thanks for your support.
