In fantasy tournaments, you play the part of the manager. You pick the players you like the best for your team and watch them gain fantasy points based on their performance in real-world games. For example are points given for scoring a goal in football. The points standings are updated in real time, so it can be quite exciting!
In most cases, you need to pay some money to participate, and there are money prizes you can win. A small part of the buy-in is taken out of the prize pool as an administration fee, while the rest is distributed to the winners of the tournament. Usually, there are a lot of prizes!
There are two types of fantasy tournaments:
Season-long is perhaps the most well-known format, where you compete for all 38 gameweeks of the Premier League (or some other league). You start out with a squad of players and make small changes from one gameweek to the next. Prizes are paid out at the end of the season.
In daily fantasy, you compete for a day or a weekend or perhaps for a week. You can enter a team on Saturday and get your winnings on Monday! In daily fantasy you start out with a brand new team for each tournament you enter, and there are no changes made after the tournament has started.
You will find them in the tournament lobby. The "hottest ones" are at the top of the list. After that, tournaments are listed based on starting time.
Note that there is a selector, so you can switch between "upcoming", "running" and "ended" tournaments.
Once inside a tournament, you can pick players from the player price list on the left. Use filters to find your best options.
For most sports, there is also an auto complete feature, if you do not know who to pick.
To challenge a friend in participating in a tournament of your liking, all you need to do is create or enter a tournament and share a link with your friends using the "Invite Friends Link" button on the dashboard.
