LONDON, DOUGLAS, Isle of Man and BOSTON, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mondogoal, one of the fastest growing global fantasy sports platform developers, today announced the addition of Tottenham Hotspur as its latest team partner.
The London club joins a growing list of European giants as team partners promoting Mondogoal's club-branded fantasy football game to its fans around the world.
The Tottenham Hotspur version of Mondogoal will debut in time for the start of the 2015/16 Premier League season at www.mondogoal.com/spurs
The Mondogoal platform will be promoted across Tottenham Hotspur's popular digital channels, including a website with 1.5m unique users per month and an Official Facebook page with nearly 7 million followers, and an estimated global fanbase of over 400 million.
This following is growing increasingly in North America, where Tottenham Hotspur now has over 40 Official Supporters Clubs, more than any other Premier League team, and will compete in this week's showpiece Major League Soccer All-Stars match in Denver, Colorado.
The Club has also recently agreed to a 10-year-partnership with the National Football League (NFL) that will see a minimum of two NFL games per year played at Tottenham Hotspur's proposed new world-class stadium, due to open in 2018.
"We are excited to partner with one of the leading clubs in English football, Tottenham Hotspur," said Shergul Arshad, CEO of Mondogoal. "Tottenham's rich tradition of playing entertaining and attacking football and the Club's exciting plans for the future - including its partnership with the NFL and new stadium expansion – means we cannot think of a better fanbase to push fantasy football to throughout the world."
"There is no doubt that fantasy football gaming is a growing engagement platform around the world, and we are proud to be able to offer this innovative opportunity to our fans through a partnership with Mondogoal," said Aidan Mullally, Head of Business Development, Tottenham Hotspur.
Mondogoal is licensed to operate globally and 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.
Mondogoal is already offering major weekly cash prizes through its partners using the adoption of a new form of engagement with fans of soccer clubs not used to fantasy play.
With Mondogoal, simply login or create an account, add funds, and every matchday 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. In 2014-15, Mondogoal ran the largest fantasy soccer pot ever in the UK with 26 year-old Alex Haywood, from London, winning the £10,000 first place prize.
This was followed up by the first-ever daily pay fantasy game for women's sports with around this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup, that resulted in both record traffic and scores of first-ever fantasy players coming to the site to participate.
