Last year during the Champions League, we trialled a prediction league. It was fairly popular, absolutely dominated by Luke, and taught us a few lessons about extending the Golbox service to beyond blogging.
As a big fan of fantasy football, I thought this year we’d try something a bit different. So, in partnership with TotelFootball, I’d like to introduce Golbox Fantasy Football…fantasy football with a twist.
In picking a team, it’s exactly the same as fantasy football. But here’s where it’s different…you can pick a new team every week, based on the fixtures, and place a small wager based on how successful you think your team will do.
So, for example, let’s say Newcastle are at home to Manchester United. You’re rightly thinking, this is probably going to be a bit of a thrashing. So you sling Demba Ba up front, bring Cabaye in and definitely drop Phil Jones and Lindegaard from last week’s team. You pick the rest of your team, and because you’re so confident Man U are going to get battered you stick a fiver on your team.
Once all the fixtures for that week have been played out, the teams with the winning points totals get their winnings dished out based on their original stake.
It’s simple, it’s a lot of fun and we’d love for you to try it out.
Existing Golbox bloggers, you’ll have a tenner arriving in your inbox soon in order to give the game a try and see how you like it.
You can also play other top European Leagues, so don’t worry about having to wait till next week for the next Premier League fixtures…play Golbox fantasy football now!
