FanTeam Daily Fantasy Football – Results Update

Fanteam is a fantasy sports site offering a variety of daily fantasy contests in various sports. We have been taking a look at their fantasy football contests and entering a few teams. 

So far we haven’t had great success, without any winnings and generally placing around midfield. 

We entered their biggest ever contest, the Euro 2020 £1m game, but again haven’t had much luck in this either, placing around mid-table so far.

In all honesty we haven’t been working hard enough on it, not realising that you can amend your teams for each gameweek for example, allowing you to bring in substitutes and different players to your squad.

Like quite a few of these fantasy games, we think it would benefit from clearer and more prominent explanations of how it works, perhaps by video. 

In truth we also feel that whilst Fanteam is a decent fantasy football game, it just hasn’t achieved anything like the excitement and engagement we have experienced with Sorare. Perhaps it’s something to do with actually owning the cards and the attachment that gives you to the players, plus the excellent rewards on offer and being able to use the cards in multiple platforms outside of Sorare itself that marks it apart from the crowd. 

Whatever the exact reasons for it, there is just something special about Sorare compared to other fantasy sports games we’ve tried. For what it’s worth though, Fan Team is pretty decent, it’s fun to play and the prizes are good, especially in this Euro 2020 special.

Anyway, we will continue playing and will devote more time to picking our lineup for each gameweek. We will report back on our final performance at the end of the Euros.

Fanteam Daily Fantasy Football – Results Update

31st May 2021

Fanteam is a fantasy sports site offering a variety of daily fantasy contests in various sports. We have been taking a look at their fantasy football contests and entering a few teams. 

So far we haven’t had great success, without any winnings and generally placing around midfield. 

However, in terms of the platform itself it is pretty straightforward to use. There are different entry points varying from as little as £1.80 up to £180, so you can select a level appropriate to you. 

You are given a budget of £105m and have to put together a team from that, which means some compromises have to be made as you can’t just pick all the best players in the league. However, we were still able to have a team with the likes of Kane, Cavani and Lingard for example so although you do have to budget a little there is still scope to include some of the top names. 

You are allowed to enter as many teams as you like, so some people will take advantage of this and enter a large number of teams covering a lot of eventualities, which is fair enough under the game rules but we would like to see this limited to say a maximum of 10 teams or something like that. 

Anyway, the main news is that there’s a big fantasy tournament for Euro 2020 with a million pound prize pool, so we will be entering that for the fee of £20 and chancing our luck. Fingers crossed for some returns from that!

Fanteam Daily Fantasy Football – New Review

29th April 2021

Today we are starting a new review of a daily fantasy football platform called FanTeam. 

If you’ve been following our review of Sorare you’ll know we are getting quite into fantasy sports these days and really enjoying it.

Fanteam is a little different to Sorare in that you don’t buy and own cards for the long-term, it is all about picking a team for the upcoming gameweek and they either win a prize or don’t. You then roll on to the next gameweek and pick your next team and so on. 

There are distinct advantages to this approach of course – you don’t need to worry about your funds being tied-up in a platform long-term and don’t need to agonise over whether said platform’s business model is sustainable or not. It’s just pay-and-play for that weekend. 

It’s also possible to play FanTeam on a much lower budget than Sorare – there are entries costing from as little as £1.80 up to £18 and £180 at the top level.

So if you’re looking for a more affordable option than Sorare, or just enjoy a bit of Fantasy Football, then FanTeam could well be for you. 

The prize funds are pretty impressive too, with a €75,000 prize pool for the upcoming gameweek including a €7,500 first prize. From what we can tell a good portion of the entries win prizes – it’s not like it’s just the top 10 or anything.

There’s also a massive €1 million prize pool for the Euros with a €200,000 first prize, so that looks like it will be worth entering. 

We are just getting set up with it at the moment but will run a full review here, recording our impression of the platform itself and our own experience of the daily fantasy football contests.  

Hopefully we can manage to land a few rewards over the course of the review, but if not then we should still have a bit of fun and excitement in the process.

As usual we will update progress here as we go along so you can see how we are getting on.

In the meantime you can check out FanTeam’s Daily Fantasy Football here.
