Good news, basketball lovers. EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge is back – and the popular companion to the continent's premier basketball competition is celebrating its 15th anniversary!
More than 1 million teams have taken part in EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge since the first edition in 2004, and once again this season, fans will have their favorite contest to enjoy and share with their friends.
Some of the innovations and changes added last season to EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge will stay, plus there will be some small modifications to make the game even better.
As last season, there will be two types of private leagues again. The classic private leagues that EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge users have learned to love over the last 14 years gives them a chance to compete in a smaller league with friends. The head-to-head league allows participants to play one-on-one showdowns against another participant, forming a season-long competition.
Another addition that worked really well last season – and made the difference for a lot of Fantasy Challenge players – is back: you can choose your own team captain! Make sure you choose wisely, however, because your captain in each round will score double points! You will be asked to choose a vice-captain, as well, in case your captain does not play for any reason.
The game's dynamic will be the same: performance index rating will determine each player's score, with a 10% bonus if his team wins. Three trades will be allowed per week, while unlimited trading will be available in the playoffs and Final Four. That's right, the Final Four will be once again a part of EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge for just the second time in the history of the contest!
The grand prize remains the same. The winner and a friend will be the Euroleague Basketball's VIP guests at the 2019 Final Four in Vitoria-Gasteiz, including flights, four hotel nights and VIP tickets, as well as access to the trophy winners' on-court celebration. The grand prize will be given to the EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge winner of the regular season, and then there will be a new winner for the playoffs and Final Four combined. More prizes means more fun!
Start playing EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge now, and if you prove to be better than the rest, you will be a VIP guest at the 2019 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four!
