GameDay Squad provides two types of public competitions for both the Aussie Rules & Rugby League fantasy sports games: Classic (Capped) & Champion (Open). Entry into either of these competitions is determined by your squad's salary cap. What sets GameDay Squad apart is its innovative salary cap system, where the rarity of the Player Card determines the salary contribution towards the cap, rather than individual player salaries. This groundbreaking approach introduces a fresh and exciting way to play fantasy sports!
Once you have selected your squad you are automatically entered into one of our two public competitions based on your total salary. In public competitions you go head-to-head against all the other coaches in the GameDay Squad community.
Classic Competition: $12 million salary cap
The Classic Competition puts coaches to the test, challenging them to create a top-performing team each week while staying within the salary cap. This introduces another level of strategy to the game. Should coaches go all-in on a few Diamond Player Cards, surrounded by mostly Bronze Player Cards? Or should they opt for a balanced team primarily made up of Silver and Gold Player Cards? The winning approach will likely vary each week, making this a truly distinctive version of fantasy sports.

Champion Competition: No salary cap restriction
The Champion Competition is a no-limits test of fantasy skill and stands out as the ultimate challenge for coaches. Coaches in this division must leverage all of the Player Cards at their disposal to achieve the highest possible score.
