At Fan Futsal, we’re focused on providing a different fantasy soccer experience. With our mission in mind, I’m excited to announce our new tournament feature currently under development.
Modeled after real-world tournaments like the FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championship, our new feature will allow groups of 4, 8, 16 or 32 friends to compete in a round-robin group stage before progressing to a single-elimination knockout stage.
Unlike most fantasy soccer games currently available, our tournaments won’t last only a day or week, but they also won’t last a full 9-month long season. Since Fan Futsal games are weekly, the full tournament will last 4–7 weeks.
This allows users to run many contests throughout a league’s season if they wish or they can try tournaments featuring different leagues without feeling the need to commit themselves fully for an entire season.
The tournaments will function like mini-traditional fantasy leagues where users compete head to head with all other members in their four-person group. The users who finish first and second in each group’s table (standings) move on to the single-elimination knockout rounds. The user left standing at the end of the knockout rounds is the champion.
Lastly (and I’d argue most importantly), what fantasy game would be complete without a message board? We’ve ensured everyone can talk as much trash as they’d like by giving every tournament its own forum.
