The Best FPL Team Names

3 March 2024

Once upon a time, the name we gave our FPL squads when registering on the website required little imagination. But the days of ‘Nigel’s XI’ or ‘Sheila’s Superstars’ are long gone. Nowadays, a football related pun is not just expected, but demanded. Can you combine a Premier League player, manager, or team with a popular film, well-known song, or best-selling novel?


Is this the season you’ll win all of your mini-leagues? Why not get some help by learning from the best FPL managers around. You can follow their every move in real time, just click here to unlock live team reveals.


Here are some of the best examples we have found when perusing our mini-leagues:

The Best

  • The Backstreet Moyes
  • Ange Management
  • Rice Rice Bebe
  • Cahills Have Eyes
  • Gangsters Allardyce
  • Flying Without Ings
  • Come Digne With Mee
  • Onana: What’s My Name?
  • Löw Island
  • Groß Misconduct
  • Moves Like Xhaka
  • Stranger Mings
  • The Konate Kid
  • Clyne of Duty
  • Netflix and Chilwell
  • Willian Dollar Baby
  • Obi 1 Kenobi 0
  • MacAwoniyi Cheese
  • Hanging By A Fred
  • Knockaert Blow
  • No Kane No Gain
  • Krul And The Gang
  • Mee, My Delph & Ibe
  • If Tomori Never Comes
  • Muller Reus Corner
  • Afternoon De Ligt
  • Botman Begins
  • Pique Blinders
  • Minority Laporte

Unfortunately, no-one sent our Elite XI managers the memo. Between James Cooper’s ‘CooperSuperTroopers’ and Corey Baker’s ‘All That Ales You’, clearly not much creativity has gone into their team names.

Fortunately for us, their ability to play FPL far exceeds their attempts to spin a humorous team name. With a combined 18 x Top 1k finishes, 61 x Top 5k finishes, and 82 Top 10k finishes, to their names, the Elite XI: Team Reveal is the place to be for top-notch FPL advice, if not football-related puns.

Speaking of which, here are some of the team names which didn’t quite hit the mark - but at least they tried. Bless 'em!
