As the countdown continues to the start of the new season, The Football League's Texaco Fantasy Football competition for the 2010/11 campaign is open for business.

In its third year, the competition puts £10m at your disposal to build an npower Championship team of your own, battling against your mates and other League fans for a hoard of top prizes and the honour of beating thousands of fellow managers to top spot.

The usual rules apply with points for goals, assists and clean sheets whilst allocated transfers allow you to tweak and bolster your team throughout the season.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for Football League fans to test their managerial skills against thousands of other supporters," said Stuart Trigwell, Partnership Manager for FLi - the digital arm of The Football League.

"We had a hugely successful season last year with 70,000 fans and even players joining in and I would encourage everyone to sign up with their friends, family and colleagues for their chance to get their hands on some great prizes."

The Manager that finishes top with the most points during the season will secure four top priced tickets for the npower Championship Play-Off Final 2011, a signed shirt from any Championship team and £500 worth of Texaco fuel vouchers.

For the early birds that sign up before 6 August 2010, there will be a pre-season draw to win two tickets to the 2011 Carling Cup Final and until the season kicks-off you can make unlimited changes to your squad, with a limit of 30 transfers once things are underway.

During the season there will also be Manager of the Month and Private League competitions with a host of prizes on offer such as fuel vouchers and matchday tickets.

Last season the number of players almost doubled from the previous year, so make sure you get involved for your chance to be crowned the Texaco Fantasy Football king.
