Fantasy games for African football lovers launched

Theydon International and STATS LLC, the world’s leading sports information provider, has announced the debut of three unique fantasy football games. The free-to-play, manager-based games are called My African 11, My Premier 11 and My Champions XI.

The My African 11 game is specifically targeted at the African market where fantasy football remains a novelty. It features a unique game concept that requires managers to utilize a player pool of African born players that compete in any of nine leading European leagues.

My Premier 11 is a budget based game drawing upon players only from English Premier League competition. Likewise, player selection for My Champions XI is made from a talent pool of Champions League players.
According to Kunle Omilani of Theydon International, ‘Having run other fantasy football games in the past, we are delighted to be launching these three exciting games on and to be working with STATS. We are particularly thrilled about building an audience in Nigeria.

The love of Nigerians for the English Premiership and other European Leagues is infectious to say the least. Now they have the opportunity to actively engage in their passion for the beautiful game with other football lovers here in Nigeria and in other parts of Africa and indeed the world.

With the World Cup in South Africa next year, football enthusiasts in Nigeria can now consummate their passion well in advance as they select their first team of African players online. STATS will be responsible for back-end, turnkey operations management of the games including development, web hosting, technical operations and customer service.
