You will initially be asked to select an XI of Euro 2024 players on a budget of £50million with a choice of seven possible formations.

Kylian Mbappe and Harry Kane are the joint-most expensive players in the game at £7.5m each and so gaffers keen on the prolific duo will have to seek out affordable bargains elsewhere to balance the books.

There’s no limit on the number of players you can select from any one club so feel free to fill your boots with England stars if you think it’s coming home this summer.

At this stage, we’ve populated the player list with core players from all 24 nations present at the tournament but more players will be added as the squads are officially announced in the coming weeks.

Dream Team’s Euros fantasy game is divided into seven scoring periods known as Matchdays.

  • Matchday 1 – first round of group games
  • Matchday 2 – second round of groups games
  • Matchday 3 – third round of group games
  • Matchday 4 – round of 16 fixtures
  • Matchday 5 – quarter-finals
  • Matchday 6 – semi-finals
  • Matchday 7 – final

Each Matchday begins one hour before the first game of the relevant scoring period kicks off.

For example, the deadline for Matchday 1 is 7pm on June 14th, one hour before Germany take on Scotland in the curtain raiser.

It’s imperative you settle on your team before that time because any changes made after the deadline won’t come into effect until Matchday 2.

Once the tournament is underway, make sure you adhere to the Matchday deadlines when making transfers, playing Boosters and selecting your captain.

The good news is that you can make unlimited changes to your XI before the first deadline so feel free to dive in head first now – there’s no harm playing around with a few early drafts this month.

Here’s a breakdown of the transfer allowance for the whole tournament:

  • Matchday 1 – unlimited transfers (prior to deadline)
  • Matchday 2 – three transfers
  • Matchday 3 – three transfers
  • Matchday 4 – unlimited transfers (before round of 16)
  • Matchday 5 – five transfers
  • Matchday 6 – five transfers
  • Matchday 7 – five transfers

Please be aware these allocations are fixed and you will not be able to roll over any unused transfers from one Matchday to the next.

You will also need to select a captain (who will have their score doubled) each Matchday and a vice-captain who will fulfil the role if your first-choice captain doesn’t play for any reason.

Additionally, you will have a supply of three Boosters that can only be played once each throughout the tournament.

Each Booster applies a special effect for the duration of one Matchday only that will result in plentiful points if deployed correctly.

  • Goal Bonus – each goal scored by your players earns TEN points (instead of the usual six)
  • 12th Man – select an additional player from any position for free to score points for your team
  • Max Captain – the player who earns the most points for your team will automatically be selected as captain, doubling their score

Boosters can only be played one at a time (not in combination with one another) so think carefully before activating each one.
