The summers are here and the anticipated excitement is already buzzing in the air. Pulling up your socks whether to play or support your favo rite soccer club or soccer team is the obvious path taken by many an avid follower of the pulsating game. With the world evolving into an online hybrid entity that thrives in the virtual environment, sports are an arena that cannot be overlooked considering their tremendous potential.
With individuals wanting to socialize and interact, the internet proves to be the most viable option in this pursuit. A new way to encourage cross-team interaction and plenty of banter is to go social online by creating a Club Fantasy soccer league. Sports social networking site offers a free application which enables soccer fans & players to create and manage a fantasy soccer competition within their club or amongst friends.
As is the case with fantasy soccer league applications related to the premiership football season or the Spanish La Liga, players are assigned a value between 1 and 10 (10 = the better player). A player’s value is based on the ability of the player to score points through ‘real-life’ performances on the field.
Club members then select their fantasy eleven from the list and compete against each other to see who was able to pick the most successful soccer team. This will encourage users and sports enthusiasts to actively search for and crave for players from other clubs as they may be a part of their fantasy soccer league.
The points system is automatically configured to accept real time performances of players and convert them into appropriate virtual points that are then credited to the particular player and his team or club. The application also allows for users to exchange banter with each other on the fantasy soccer competition message board as well as to send virtual trophies and gifts to weekly/monthly winners and overall champions. To add additional spice to the Fantasy soccer league, players can be asked to pay to play with some or all of the takings going towards the prize money, club or charity fundraiser.
To simulate a real time soccer season experience, the league organizer should create transfer windows so that the users remain interested in selling, buying and transferring players. Players are given the opportunity over a number of days to trade in those players who got injured and those who aren’t performing as well as hoped. The application makes it very easy to manage transfer windows: the fantasy league organizer simply selects a date range and sets the maximum number of players that can be swapped.
The time is right to start your own fantasy soccer league and get into the thick of the action in the soccer season. This is as close as virtually you can get to the smell of the turf in the middle.
