Here you’ll find plenty of inspiration for ready-made team names as well as some suggestions on how to create your own. And once you do, feel free to share your new name with us.



Fantasy Premier League winning team name

Last season’s (2013/14 Season) Fantasy Premier League winning team name was ‘Captain Suarez!’ which turned out to be the best advice any Fantasy manager could have stuck to. If Liverpool’s Luis Suarez wasn’t scoring in a game then you could at least bank on him getting points for assists or bonuses.

What’s your advice for the 2014/15 season?
So maybe there’s weight in basing your team name on some good sensible advice? If your team name was to be some sound advice for this season, what would it be? Submit your suggestions.
