For the past couple of years I’ve been involved in a highly competitive fantasy footy league at work, based on the official Premier League game.

This is a great game, is free and really easy to play, so I thought I’d set up a Ramspace league for DCFC fans. You can sign up here – and you can join our league with this code – 902374-230690
