Checkd Media nets Sam Allardyce to promote new FanTeam fantasy game
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Fast-growing iGaming business Checkd Media has recruited Sam Allardyce to help promote daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform FanTeam’s £100,000 Second Chance Season Game.

Former England manager ‘Big Sam’, who has made a career out of restoring order at troubled clubs, is the face of the campaign’s branded content. It highlights the fantasy Premier League tournament covering the remainder of the 2021-22 season, offering players a renewed shot at success.

The content created by Checkd Media includes a range of influencers from high-profile fantasy football social accounts, who are seen posing the biggest questions on the transfer window and the current state of play in the Premier League to Big Sam.

The first part of the campaign runs up to the start of the Second Chance Season Game on January 14th, utilising on-screen branding and mentions within the content to promote FanTeam’s unique game and the chance it presents to save players’ fantasy football seasons.

Will Tyrrell, Head of Marketing at Checkd Media, said: “The Second Chance Season Game from FanTeam is a fantastic chance for football fans to chalk off what has been for many a tricky first half of the fantasy football season and start again.

“There are few more recognisable managerial experts than Sam Allardyce, so it’s great to have him involved in giving fantasy managers a few pointers on players and teams they should be targeting to have the best chance of landing the top prize. We have already seen strong results from the campaign so far, which further builds on our past successes in delivering excellent KPIs for our partners.”

Fransisco Reinhard, Head of Marketing at FanTeam, said: “Our Second Chance Season Game provides an opportunity to shine for those fantasy managers who didn’t manage to hit the ground running from the start of the season. With that in mind, there was nobody better placed than seasoned top-flight trouble-shooter Sam Allardyce to offer his insights to players at this stage.

“Checkd Media is renowned in the industry for its engaging, entertaining content and this eye-catching campaign is one that is yielding great results.”
