THE DAILY FANTASY SPORTS PHENOMENON
FOR A LONG TIME, THE POPULAR ONLINE MANAGER GAME, FANTASY SPORTS, WAS ONLY ACCESSIBLE TO FANS IN THE US. THIS IS NOW CHANGING THANKS TO SPORT.GURU COMING TO GERMANY AS THE FIRST DAILY FANTASY SPORTS OPERATOR, FOCUSING ITS SIGHTS ON EUROPEAN FOOTBALL!
What began in the early 1970s as a pastime for the sport of American Football reached its climax in the past decade and became an online mass phenomenon in the USA. According to a survey by the US branch association FSTA, more than 56 million people in the US and Canada have been enthusiastic about the online strategy game fantasy sports in recent years.
Fantasy sports appeals to those hardcore sports fans and “wannabe referees” who are never on the pitch themselves, but often know more than the coach of their favorite club. Here everyone can pursue their passion for football and slip into the role of a club manager without ever having a coaching license.
The game principle is simple and quick to learn: choose a contest, draft a team of football professionals and hope that your choice of players nets the best result. The winner of the contest is not decided by chance, but by the performance of the professional footballers on the respective match day in real sporting events. Every goal, every successful assist, every converted penalty, every save of the keeper in the football game, enters the player statistics database, which is the core of the great fantasy sports machinery. Whether the game is just for fun or for real prizes, each player can decide for themselves.
SPORT.Guru cultivates this game format and offers all sports enthusiasts and football fans the opportunity to participate in exciting online contests. Through regular daily competitions, the fantasy game takes on a whole new dynamic and increases the entertainment value in the long run. Whether it’s a closed contest with co-workers or a quick match among friends, at SPORT.Guru everyone who enjoys fantasy sports can join in.
In the near future SPORT.Guru will be adding more sports and game formats, which will make the start-up’s product offering even more diverse.
