    With just over a week left until the hockey gods descend on Beijing, FieldHockeyForum would like to announce the FHF Fantasy League for Beijing 2008. Players will be able to pick a squad of 11 players from all over the globe, then cheer and cry as those players battle for Olympic supremacy.

    Pick your squad and win!
    With a budget of 100 million Dollars at your disposal, pick a squad of 1 goalkeeper, 3 defenders, 3 midfielders, 3 attackers and a PC specialist based on the player values. Also note that this year we have made a ruling that no more than three players from the same country can be included in your squad. (http://www.fieldhockeyforum.com/index.php/topic,5462.0.html).

    Prizes
    We will hopefully be able to get prizes out to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ranked contestants. these prizes will be told to the winners upon the completion of the fantasy league

    Scoring
    The players in your squad score points based on how they perform at the 2008 Olympic Games, and what position you select them in. The scoring system is as follows:


    GOALSScored by other member of teamFG by playerPC goal by playerPS goal by playerGoal by other teamForward1522-2Midfielder2422-2
    Defender1422-4Goalkeeper1--2-5

    Defender-1/-5/-20-5653Goalkeeper-1/-5/-20-5653
    PC specialist-1/-10/-30-5262

    How to apply
    First You must check that your team meets the criteria. It has to have a total value under 100, It must consist of 1GK (who must be an actual Goalkeeper), 3 defenders, 3 midfielders, 3 attackers and a PC specialist, no more than three players can be competing for the same country and all players you picked must be competing at the 2008 Beijing Olympics men’s hockey competition. Once you have that go to the Beijing fantasy league board and nominate your team in the appropriate topic. Note that for your nomination to count it must be lodged before the start the men’s hockey competition, if it is submitted after that you must apply to me for consent to participate.

    you dont have to have players in the positions that they will actually play on the field. you can put a forward as one of your defenders or whatever you like, the only thing to think about is the relative advantages and disadvantages of each position.

    as far as finding the information goes, if you look at the national hockey websites some will have the players and their positions there.
