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.
