The new FPL season is almost upon us, which means teams are being drafted up, strategies are being considered, and transfer news followed religiously.
But one thing trumps them all in terms of importance at this pre-season stage: your team name. Even if you end up doing badly in the game itself, you can still hold your head up high among your mates if you have the funniest and most original team name in your league.
Don’t be that person with a placeholder like “The Reds” or “C’mon Leeds” – you can do better than that. It can be hard to come up with something totally new and original, so we’ve compiled a list of our favourite team names here. We’ve tried to keep it as relevant to this season and the English top-flight as humanly possible, but we had to include a few classics in there too.
If you fancy deep diving to maximise your chances of success we highly recommend Fantasy Football Hub, which is a phenomenal resource for providing all the latest FPL stats, tips and general info.
