The Total Football competition is a weekly competition where users all over the world compete to become the best Topps Total Football player around, the Total Footballer if you will.
Each league gameweek lasts 1 week. At the end of that gameweek, users at the bottom of the league table will be relegated into the league below and the users at the top of the league table earn promotion into the league above. All players earn rewards for taking part, but they scale upwards in worth and rarity, as the league scales higher.
Your league score starts fresh from a baseline of 0 each week. Users are matched against online opponents in their league and your league score then onwards is based on performance in matches that week, with 0 for a loss, +1 for a draw and +3 for a win.
