RAMSEY, Isle of Man and BOSTON, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mondogoal is proud to announce collaboration with a third major European soccer club, Manchester City Football Club. Manchester City F.C. joins Liverpool F.C. and A.S. Roma as team partners promoting the daily fantasy soccer site, Mondogoal, to its fans around the world.
Mondogoal brings the excitement of fantasy soccer, where fans can choose a team from players from their favorite leagues, to a daily format all throughout the World Cup – and soon, during the Premier League, Serie A, and many more leagues. Now, on each matchday or, in many cases, on a set day, a fan can enter their fantasy soccer team against a friend(s) or fellow fan(s) in a head-to-head battle or multi-team tournament for free or for cash (for fans from the United Kingdom, United States and Canada - and soon other markets). Mondogoal also has a data service deal with Opta Sports (part of the Perform Company) to provide real-time updated fantasy stats for the top leagues and for the World Cup.
The Manchester City partnership is expected to drive many fantasy soccer enthusiasts from the UK and around the world to try the new daily format on Mondogoal. Fans of Manchester City F.C. are directed to www.mondogoal.com/mcfc to join the Manchester City F.C. branded version of Mondogoal.
"We are thrilled to be working with the EPL Champions, Manchester City," says Mondogoal CEO & Founder, Shergul Arshad. "With players such as Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero and so many more represented across World Cup rosters, Manchester City is an ideal partner. We welcome Manchester City fans from around the world to try Mondogoal and in the US, UK and Canada fans can compete for exciting cash prizes. Additionally, if you love Fantasy Football, soccer or any sports and have not yet tried Mondogoal, I encourage you to try it out as it will make the World Cup entertaining throughout, regardless of how your country is performing."
Diego Gigliani - Director of Marketing, Media & Fan Development of Manchester City F.C. states:
"Fantasy football gaming, as a category, has proven incredibly engaging for fans all across the world. We're convinced Mondogoal's simple yet powerful twist fills a gap in the marketplace – right on time for Brazil and ahead of an exciting new Barclays Premier League season."
Mondogoal will be live for every day during the World Cup where there is at least one match played. Starting in August, eight full competitions will be available: Serie A, Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Major League Soccer, Champions League and Europa League. For a full set of contests, to see the site and signup today please visit: www.mondogoal.com.

Challenge your friends or play against fellow fans from around the world either head to head or in leagues or tournaments. Play for free or for real cash in select markets, where winners take home real money. Mondogoal uses the best stats service in the soccer business, Opta, and has a compelling and unique scoring system to enable fans to have many ways for their players to earn points. Stats for players are updated live, so fans can enjoy a true second screen experience as they watch their favorite footy matches on TV or at the stadium, while checking in on their Mondogoal team stats.
