Whether you’ve spent hours mulling over your Fantasy Premier League selections or hastily thrown together a group of 15 players, the competition has started.

You may have even entered the FPL Draft this season - a whole new world of management alongside the traditional game - to challenge your friends in the bid for glory.

But it all starts with your team name.

Here’s how you can change your FPL team name as well as a selection of the best and most funny names to inspire the troops over the ups and downs of the Premier League season.

How can I change my FPL team name?

As well as changing your squad, captain, vice captain, making transfers or trades, and deciding when best to play your chips, FPL users can also change their team name.

So if you quickly typed something in the glaring empty box and want an upgrade don’t worry - it can be changed quickly and easily to something which better suits your team.

Once logged into your Fantasy Premier League account, all you have to do is find the My Details page where the option of changing your team name will be displayed at the top of the page.

This can be done by clicking on the ‘Help’ tab across the top of the ‘Fantasy’ page.

Under the FAQ tab and eight rows down is the commonly asked question ‘How do I change my team name, my team kit or the team I support?’.

Click on that drop down menu and then the ‘team details’ link which will take you to the right place to make those appropriate changes to your team name, kit or supported team.

What is a good FPL team name?

A team name has to be less than 20 characters in length, so there’s not much room to play with when deciding on your team name.

There is also a polite reminder for users to think carefully before entering your team name.

"Teams with names that are deemed inappropriate or offensive may result in your account being deleted. Please refer to the Terms & Conditions of entry for more information," it states.
