Totel Football DesignTotelFootball is delighted to announce a new media partnership between TotelFootball and Goal.com, the world’s largest football website. The deal will establish Goal.com as media partner for the weekly Premier League and Champions League TotelFootball fantasy football games.

TotelFootball is an online fantasy game which brings the excitement of pool betting to the millions of fantasy football managers around the planet. Each customer picks a team from players at clubs in the Premier League (or other top competitions) and stakes an amount to enter the team into the game. The game runs over a week-end set of fixtures with players earning points based on their performance (e.g. players earn points for appearance, goals, assists, etc. whilst goals conceded, cards, etc. lose points for a player).  The better the players perform, the more points each team earns, with the top 10% of teams after the week-end’s fixtures sharing the prize pool. To help new players kick-off their own TotelFootball season, a matched deposit bonus of up to £100 can be claimed.
