Mondogoal To Launch First-Ever Fantasy Soccer Platform For 2015 Women’s World Cup
New Game To Include All Nations And Will Be The First-Ever Daily Fantasy Product For A Women’s Team Sport
March 17, 2015 RAMSEY, ISLE OF MAN and BOSTON, MA: Mondogoal, one of the fastest growing global fantasy sports platform developers focused on the world’s biggest sport of soccer, today announced that they will launch a daily pay fantasy game for the 2015 Women’s World Cup, which will be played in Canada from June 6 through July 5, 2015, with the final being held at BC Place in Vancouver. It is the first-ever daily pay fantasy game for any women’s team sport.
“The Women’s World Cup is a phenomenal platform for the game, and will draw not just passionate soccer fans but a casual audience interested in both women’s sport and the majesty of a global event,” said Shergul Arshad, CEO of Mondogoal.“By creating this game for a global audience we will provide a unique engagement platform for all, and we believe it will raise the visibility and the interest not just for soccer but for women’s sports as well. In North America, Daily Fantasy Sports has taken off, and interest in soccer is at an all-time high. With contests for Major League Soccer and now Women’s World Cup, we are making sure the North American soccer fan not only can play fantasy contests from popular European leagues, but also from the best available locally.”
Mondogoal will have daily pay fantasy games throughout the Women’s World Cup for all teams and all matches. Each day of the group stages, fans will pick a team of 11 players from the four games on that day using the Mondogoal salary cap format and then watch the Women’s World Cup to see players earn points for their fantasy teams with every contribution they make during the game. Like in any pay fantasy game, the best compiled scores at the end of the day from a series of statistics will win the top cash prizes.
Because Mondogoal is licensed to operate globally, it is the only daily fantasy sports site available for cash play in multiple major markets around the world, with specific emphasis on the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Ireland, and Brazil. In just over 24 weeks since full season launch with its partners in soccer (Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, West Ham United FC, Manchester City FC, and AS Roma), Mondogoal is already offering major cash prizes throughout the week, and the adoption of a new form of engagement with fans of soccer clubs not used to fantasy play is growing exponentially every week. With Mondogoal, simply log in or create an account, add funds, and every match-day there is the chance to win money by building a formidable starting 11 and competing in a Head-to-Head battle or Multi-User-Tournaments.
Data analytics for use by consumers are compiled in real-time by Perform’s Opta Sports, with points awarded for goals, assist, tackles won or lost, shots on goal, passes completed, shutouts and much more. Mondogoal runs contests on a daily or match-day basis for La Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Major League Soccer, Ligue 1, the FA Cup, European Championship Qualifiers and the prestigious Champions League and Europa League.
