Statistics is obtained from leading sports resource sites like skysports.com and espn.com. Fantasylig DO NOT make individual scoring decisions but the scoring does lock at the end of each match. 
Changes made by the league office after game is over and statistics locked down by fantasylig for contestants cannot be changed. For instance, if a player is given a yellow card and the league office rescind the card after two days, this does not impact your fantasylig score.

Point scales that are not uniform across the league or verified by fantasyligwill not be recorded for any player or contestant. For instance, if fantasylig cannot verify minutes played for some players in EPL, it will not be recorded for any player in EPL. If it can be verified for all players in MLS, it will be recorded for all players in MLS. Statistics from players in real soccer games for players that are not in fantasylig will not be recorded for any contestant. For instance, Joe Blow scores a goal for EPL in real game and Joe Blow is not a player in fantasylig, no points will be recorded for any contestant.

No points will be awarded to postponed or cancelled games and contestants will be notified by email or a bulletin posted on our Facebook or twitter page.
At the request of customers and fans, minutes have been replaced by total passes so its a stat that has been disabled temporarily even though its on the point scales in menu bar.
