2021 UKFL: Week 1

Here we are- Week 1 of the 2021 UKFL is in the book! So let’s take a look at the action. Remember, you can always reach out to us on Twitter if you have any questions about the league. I hope in your leagues you were the right side of the guys that had big games, and not affected by Matt Ryan and Brandon Aiyuk.

UKFL4 Signups Are Coming Soon

The signups to next year are going to be opening up soon. But before they don, I was hoping we could get some feedback from you guys on the format of the league. During the signup stage we had some people talk about their love of kickers, DST and more.

This league is run for you guys, so if there is something that you would like to see change then let us know.

2021 UKFL Week 1 Highest Score

The highest score this week was in the Wembley division. User Ashambrose amassed a score of 233.58. Of course he had a bunch of guys who had themselves a game, but somehow did that with Matt Ryan in his starting lineup!


To date, we have raised £687 (with another £139 gift aid) so thank you so much! We’ve also seen some people have made donations to personal charities for them- so that’s great too!

I spoke with Emma at First Days recently, and they were really happy with what we have managed to raise. She reminded me of a fact that for every £1 that has been donated, it is able to help family budgets by around £4! So with the donations received to date we have helped families with around £3.3k of aid!

If you haven’t made a donation yet, please do, you can do so here.

Playoff Picture

Once we are a few weeks in, we will also share the teams that are qualifying for the playoffs. The playoffs will work in the same way as last year:

  • You need to enter a team into the Sleeper app (the result of that in-app game doesn’t matter)
  • Teams face everyone in the matchup they are put into
  • Highest scores advance from each matchup

So that’s the recap for this week. Hopefully we get some more good action next week on the field.
