Ultimate Fan Live

Real-time Fantasy Football. Challenge your friends and play along during televised matches.

With the season now underway, we are very excited to introduce to you a feature we have been working on for some time... CONTESTS. WITH PRIZES!

Sounds cool, what are they?

Contests gives you the chance to compete against the rest of the world, and battle it out to become the number one fan. What makes it all the more exciting is that it will only last 7 days and the top fans will be rewarded every week. After 7 days the contest is reset and you have the chance to claim number one spot again.

How do I enter?

You can join any contest for free before you start playing, or we will automatically enter you after you play any PUBLIC game. Only points earned during public games will count towards your contest rank.

What can I win?

1st prize each week will be 10,000 coins! 2nd place 6,667 coins and 3rd place 5000 coins with smaller rewards if you finish in the top 10 or top 1%.

What fixtures go towards my contest rank?

For the UFL Global contest, ALL fixtures on the app count. So make sure you are active and play as many games as possible to give yourself the best chance of winning. But remember, only your points from public games will count.

What’s coming up next?

Expect to see more contests, like Premier League and La Liga ones!

Have a good weekend and enjoy the new update!

Introducing: Contests

With the season now underway, we are very excited to introduce to you a feature we have been working on for some time... CONTESTS. WITH PRIZES! Sounds cool, what are they? Contests gives you the chance to compete against the rest of the world, and battle it out to become...

It's FINALLY here! The 2016/17 football season is now upon us and UFL is back bigger and better for the new season.

Fixtures:

You will see all fixtures are now labelled as Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. These all have different entry costs with different rewards. Check the rewards for each fixture by clicking on this rewards button:

alt

The most common request we had last season was rewards for finishing in 2nd, 3rd and 4th. So, this season we've made a few changes, and as long as you play with at least 2 others, you WILL win coins back even if you don't finish 1st! You can find the exact amount for each fixture on the same rewards button as above.

Power-Up & Trade prices will also change depending on the type of fixture. For a Bronze game they will only cost 10 coins, which means you can use all your boosts and aim for the highest score possible.

Point Scoring:

alt We have made some improvements to point scoring during games and you can find the complete new table by clicking HERE

Leagues:

Leagues with over 20 users have been removed. We did this because they were affecting the apps stability & performance and had become too difficult for us to manage. You can read more on this HERE

There's only 3 days to go until the Premier League kicks off, 2 days until Ligue 1 starts and just 1 day until the Saudi Pro League begins!

So, it’s time to start talking about some of the exciting changes we’re making to UFL for the new season, starting with the points your players will earn.

One of the biggest changes you'll notice is that skilful wingers and attackers could start earning more points. You'll see that GOAL has been moved up from 40 to 45 points, Great Dribble has gone from 4 to 6 points and Top Skill is now worth 8 points. Great news for those of you who love to draft the likes of Eden Hazard or Riyad Mahrez.

We've also made some other small adjustments like Interceptions moving up from 3 to 4 points and Goalkeeper Save from 9 to 10 points.

Here is the full breakdown of positive and negative points your players can earn next season on UFL:

2016/17 Points Changes

There's only 3 days to go until the Premier League kicks off, 2 days until Ligue 1 starts and just 1 day until the Saudi Pro League begins! So, it’s time to start talking about some of the exciting changes we’re making to UFL for the new season,...

We are busy at work at UFL HQ improving the app for the new Premier League season starting August 13.

We are working on lots of exciting things: contests, more football leagues, improving coin rewards and more!

One of the biggest features we're changing is leagues.

Leagues with more than 20 users in will be permanently DELETED from August 1st.

After that date, the next time you login, you will no longer see them leagues on your profile.

The main reason for this is that big leagues have become incredibly hard to manage. At first we built leagues for groups of friends no bigger than 20. Big leagues as they are now (some with over 5000 users) have a knock-on impact on the app’s performance and stability.

If your league has 20 users in or under, NO changes will be made and you don’t need to worry. Your league leaderboards will be reset on August 1.

All the work we are doing this summer is to improve the fun, competitiveness and stability of UFL for an even bigger and better 2016/17 season.

In the meantime, enjoy your summer and MLS games!

Thanks,
Team UFL

With Kroos, Ozil, Payet, Pogba and more all available for this one, Germany v France looks set to be one of the most exciting drafts of the season on UFL. But apart from the obvious choices, who should you pick?! This edition of UFL Scout looks at PSG and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi who has been in typically good form during EURO 2016.

EURO 2016 Form:

vs Romania - 79 UFL Points
vs Albania - 97 UFL Points
vs Switzerland - 5 UFL Points (Sub)
vs Ireland - 103 UFL Points
vs Iceland - 132 UFL Points

Average UFL Points Per Game (Starts only): 103

Next Game:

vs Germany (07/07/2016)

Key Stats (EURO 2016):

Positive:

Pass - 246 (246 Points)
Great Dribble - 7 (28 Points)
Great Pass - 7 (28 Points)
Assist - 1 (18 Points)
Interception - 5 (15 Points)

Negative:

Pass Miss - 24 (-24 Points)
Loses Ball - 4 (-4 Points)
Bad Dribble - 4 (-4 Points)

Best Power-Up: Pass Master

Verdict: Second choice draft - If you draft Matuidi alongside one of Kroos, Ozil, Payet or Pogba, you will be onto a winner!

UFL Scout - Blaise Matuidi

With Kroos, Ozil, Payet, Pogba and more all available for this one, Germany v France looks set to be one of the most exciting drafts of the season on UFL. But apart from the obvious choices, who should you pick?! This edition of UFL Scout looks at PSG and France...

Who's your first choice pick for Portugal v Wales tonight? Ronaldo? Bale? Renato Sanches? Well, here's another name that might surprise you that should be high up on your list... Wales centre-back James Chester. No other defender for Wales or Portugal has scored as many points as him during EURO 2016.

EURO 2016 Form:

vs Slovakia - 41 UFL Points
vs England - 74 UFL Points
vs Russia - 91 UFL Points
vs Northern Ireland - 96 UFL Points (Man of the Match)
vs Belgium - 55 UFL Points

Average UFL Points Per Game: 71

Next Game:

vs Portugal (06/07/2016)

Key Stats (EURO 2016):

Positive:

Pass - 190 (190 Points)
Tackle - 16 (64 Points)
Interception - 16 (48 Points)
Clears Ball - 19 (38 Points)
Great Dribble - 5 (20 Points)

Negative:

Pass Miss - 19 (-19 Points)
Yellow Card - 1 (-7 Points)
Foul Conceded - 4 (-4 Points)

Best Power-Up: Defensive Rock - Chester scores highly for his defensive actions, particularly tackles and interceptions. If you pick 10 minutes of the game where Portugal are on top, you should gain a good advantage.

Verdict: Good second pick - Okay, so you're not going to pick James Chester over Ronaldo or Bale. But if you're running out of options for your second pick, you could do much worse than James Chester.

Welcome to UFL Scout, where we look at some of the best players on UFL to help you make your draft picks by looking at the stats from recent games. This time, we scout the Zenit and Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel. He is a box to box powerhouse in the centre of midfield for the Red Devils and has been one of the highest scoring players on UFL. He has scored over 320 UFL points so far in the Euro's.

EURO 2016 Form:

vs Italy - 77 UFL Points
vs Ireland - 130 UFL Points (Man of the Match)
vs Sweden - 43 UFL Points
vs Hungary - 73 UFL Points

Next game:

vs Wales (1/7/2016)

Key Stats (EURO 2016):

Positive:

Pass - 176 (176 points)
GOAL! - 1 (40 points)
Great Pass - 7 (28 points)
Interception - 6 (18 points)
Foul Won - 7 (7 points)

Negative:

Yellow Card - 1 (-7 points)
Pass Miss - 15 (-15 points)
Foul Conceded - 3 (-3 points)

Best Power-Up: Pass Master

Verdict: First Choice Draft - Only De Bruyne and Hazard in the Belgium squad have earned more UFL Points than Witsel during the Euro's. He rarely scores any negative points and his impressive passing stats making him a great choice.

Hey everyone,

We hope you are enjoying playing EURO 2016 on UFL. We thought we'd just give you a quick update about a couple of the issues we have had with our servers.

We were asked this by one of our users:

"Hello, I very much enjoying playing UFL. However I feel there are numerous issues that need to be improved. The game's servers are clearly not up to the usage level of the game, unsurprising given its rapidly increasing popularity. This means that during draft countdowns the clock gets stopped at 0:00 for a long time, for example today when it was frozen like this for around 10 minutes. In addition, when choosing a player, it sometimes doesn't work properly, for example today I picked my player but it wasn't registered and I instead got a force draft. Coins and profiles often don't load propedly when I open the app, and while this isn't major I would like to see it fixed.

Finally, the release of line-ups seems to be very inconsistent, such as in today's match between Italy and Spain when they were only in a minute before kick-off. This could be out of your control however I don't believe this was the case at least today, and they seem to have become later the longer I have played the game. This can sometimes cause me to miss my draft as I don't know when it will be starting, so perhaps it would be better to always release line-ups at a certain time, i.e. 30 minutes before so they will be definitely in, to avoid confusion and people missing their drafts. While this message may have sounded very negative, I would like to express that I am a great fan of this game and continue to play it despite these issues, however the fixes I have suggested would help to enhance the experience of myself and others and mean that I would be more likely to recommend the game to others."

This was our reply:

Hello, thank you very much for your feedback. We agree with all your points, they are fair and consistent with what we are seeing and hearing.

To clarify, Euro line-up's usually always come in 1 hr before kick-off from Opta. However, yesterday [For Spain v Italy] they were delayed and this had a knock-on affect on drafting where servers were rammed around kick-off with everybody trying to draft. We can assure you that we are working hard to fix this for next season, moving to a more solid architecture as we have outgrown our current one that was not built for the current scale of users.

In terms of profile, you will see some delay during the Euro's on this updating so that live games can run smoothly. We had to take this action so live games won't get affected. Again, this will be optimised for the new season.

We will also improve push notifications to ensure they are more timely and that less draft picks will be missed.

Improving the servers so the game can always run smoothly next season is our priority this summer. Thanks to everyone for your patience and support during the Euro's and make sure you stick around for next season!

Update on our servers!

Hey everyone, We hope you are enjoying playing EURO 2016 on UFL. We thought we'd just give you a quick update about a couple of the issues we have had with our servers. We were asked this by one of our users: "Hello, I very much enjoying playing UFL. However...

Welcome to the second instalment of UFL Scout, where we look at some of the best players of EURO2016 to help you make your draft picks on UFL. In the first one we looked at Portugal's Andre Gomes. In this one we turn our attention to Hungary's rising defensive midfielder Adam Nagy. Hungary have been one of the surprise packages of the tournament, and Nagy has been key to their success.

EURO2016 Form:

vs Austria - 75 UFL Points
vs Iceland - 70 UFL Points

Next game:

vs Portugal (22/6/2016)

Key Stats (EURO 2016):

Positive:

Pass - 95 (95 Points)
Tackle - 7 (28 Points)
Interception - 4 (12 Points)
Great Pass - 2 (8 Points)
Great Dribble - 2 (8 Points)

Negative:

Pass Miss - 12 (-12 Points)
Yellow Card - 1 (-7 Points)
Foul Conceded - 2 (-2 Points)
Loses Ball - 2 (-2 Points)

Best Power-up: Defensive Rock

Verdict: Rising Star - He might not be your first choice draft, but Nagy could be a great second pick. He very rarely misplaces a pass and is likely to score highly for his tackles and interceptions against Portugal.
