Fantasy Premier League: 200 FPL team names for this season

Fantasy Premier League: 200 FPL team names for this season
(Image credit: Future)

Every season we sit in front of the Fantasy Premier League app, scratching our heads. We make decisions, go back on those decisions. What do we choose, exactly? What's a sure-fire tactic to see us top our mates' league come Monday morning?

And that's just to choose the name of our fantasy team. While 'Harry's Heroes' and 'Steve's XI' may have used to have had a place in your Fantasy League, now it's about the funniest, the punniest and the downright worst wordplay possible. Some footballers are legitimately stigmatised for life by awful Fantasy names. Yes, Jeff Schlupp. Looking at you.

So we thought we'd throw some ideas into the ring for you. How about these to start you off with? If you're using the FPL app, there's a character limit of 20 – but some of these names might come in useful in other games: even Sunday League teams. 

The classics

These will either a) never get old or b) already feel so old that they’re back in fashion again. That’s how it works, right?
