LAST MAN STANDING
The safety score for Gameweek 1 was 44, with 137 teams eliminated and 2,201 surviving.
The top scorer was Jonathan Muyimba, who played his Bench Boost for 102 points.
It reopened at 3am on Wednesday morning for 50 odd new entries and will open again at 9pm on Thursday evening for another 50.
Entries for MIR’s FFS Head-to-Head Leagues have now closed.
9,483 teams entered before the deadline (1,100 more than last season) and it is hoped that these will be allocated to Divisions in the 9 League pyramid before Gameweek 2.
All teams will have had a fixture in Gameweek 1 – they just won’t know who they’ve played till later!
