Great news. The group stages of the 2010-11 Champions League kick off next week, so I’d like to invite you to join the EPL Talk private league version of the UEFA Champions League Fantasy Football competition which is free to join.

To play for free against thousands of football fans from around the world, here’s all you have to do:

  1. Visit the UEFA Champions League website and log in
  2. If you’ve never registered before, sign up today. It’s free and takes just a minute.
  3. After logging in, select your team (you can always change the team selection later, so don’t worry about finalizing your team right then and there),
  4. Click the ‘League’ link
  5. In the “Join A League” field, enter the code 32956-7258 and then click the ‘Join League’ button

The Champions League fantasy game is more challenging than the Premier League one because you need to be more aware of all of the teams that compete in the Champions League. It’s definitely harder to pick a team, I find.

Best of luck to each contestant!
