Fantasy football hits Malta
Fantasy football is a popular game all over the world, even among Maltese football enthusiasts, but it was not until recently introduced to the Maltese football scene.
The game, which is completely free, starts with the selection of 11 players to make up a team. Points are awarded based on the performance of the players in the selected team, including their results, goals scored, clean sheets and man-of-the-match performances.
The game also incorporates regular transfer windows in which users can transfer up to three players. This allows them to change players who are not in form or injured, replacing them with ones who are more likely to score them points for the next period. Users also choose a captain, which can be changed weekly and will earn them double points.
FantasyFootballMalta.com, the first of these online games to hit Malta, has had over 600 registrations in its first four days and is expected to continue to rise in popularity. Prizes will be won by each month’s top performers and an end of the season grand prize will go to the overall winner.
