GUATEMALA CITY, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FantasyGol today announced the launch of its new pay-to-play fantasy soccer (fútbol) platform that allows individuals to enter real money fantasy soccer contests to compete against each other in a daily fantasy sports format.
FantasyGol customers can enjoy competing in fantasy sport contests across English Premier League matches, MLS matches, and FantasyGol plans to add support for many other leagues in the coming months to expand its product offering.
FantasyGol's website is powered by Flower City Gaming, the Rochester, NY company that operates Star Fantasy Leagues. Star Fantasy Leagues has been nominated for a number of gaming industry awards, including Best Fantasy Sports Operator at both iGaming North America and eGaming Review North America.
"We are pleased to be working with some of the greatest fantasy soccer minds in the world at FantasyGol," said Star Fantasy Leagues CEO Zach Stanley. "FantasyGol knows their market and are committed to providing the world's leading fantasy soccer experience. In utilizing our technology, FantasyGol is making a statement that they want to operate a fantasy sports business to the highest standards. I can't wait to see what they do."
FantasyGol, based in Guatemala City, was initially launched in January 2013 but decided to switch its technology to the Star Fantasy Leagues platform in late 2014 in order to gain greater product flexibility moving forward. The concept for the website originated with Daniel Picciotto, one of FantasyGol's founders, who grew up with a father that was a die-hard soccer fan.
"It's been my dream, and my father's dream, to run a business focused on soccer," said Picciotto. "FantasyGol is a product of passion for the game. It's run by fans, for fans, and the game experience is like no other fantasy soccer website I've ever seen."
FantasyGol CEO Jose Wirtz added, "Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Outside of the USA, many soccer fans haven't seen a fantasy sports game like the one we've launched. The sky is the limit here."
Pay-to-play fantasy leagues are available at www.FantasyGol.com, and free games, while subject to certain terms and conditions, are open to anyone worldwide.
Wirtz, who is himself a top ranked fantasy soccer player, is confident that players exposed to daily fantasy soccer will immediately fall in love.
"It makes watching the game 100% better," said Jose. "I can't watch without playing fantasy soccer now, it's too much fun. I know that anyone who plays on FantasyGol is going to love it."
Launched in 2013, FantasyGol is an online daily and weekly and fantasy soccer provider, allowing users to participate and win real money in fantasy soccer contests. FantasyGol puts the player in the front office as the General Manager and on the sidelines as the Coach of their own virtual soccer team. From creating a team to following games in real time, FantasyGol brings excitement and a new way to enjoy soccer. FantasyGol is based in the USA.
