Scout Gaming launches Spring Championship of online fantasy football with €500,000 guaranteed prizepool

Due to high demand, and the success of the WCOFF (World Championship of Online Fantasy Football) that was held on FanTeam.com in December, Scout Gaming Group just launched the biggest Fantasy Football tournament in Europe ever, with a total prize pool of €500,000, where minimum €150,000 goes to the winner.

As the leading B2B fantasy sports provider, and with the world’s biggest fantasy tournament network, Scout Gaming Group is once again breaking records, launching the first ever Spring Championship of Fantasy Football. The tournament will take place with game week 37 and game week 38 in the Premier League in May and will be available to all partners in the Scout Gaming Network.
The buy-in will be €1,100, but there will be plenty of opportunities for users to qualify through satellites that start with buy in as low as €1. The tournament has a max number of seats available at 1000, making the maximum prize pool €1,000,000.
The Spring Championship is a dual game week event played daily fantasy-style, on 2 separate game weeks for the English Premier League: GW 37 & GW 38. Participants in the tournament will get to pick a brand new daily fantasy team each of the game weeks, with the normal Scout Gaming daily fantasy rules. Points for both game weeks will then be added together, and the final ranking will be decided based on that.
Scout Gaming Group is the world’s biggest B2B fantasy provider, offering a wide variety of game types, sports and leagues, with real money buy-ins in the world’s biggest fantasy network.
Additionally, Scout Gaming Group is a pioneer in offering betting odds on fantasy points/duels/matchups. Using the same scoring system as for fantasy-tournaments, it is possible bet on players from different matches, different leagues, and even from different sports! Scout Gaming Group is also offering a sportsbook with more traditional sportsbetting products, excellent to convert Fantasy-players into sportsbook players, a Matchup-game and other betting-products.
