Picklive Limited, operators and suppliers of next-generation daily fantasy sports and social gaming are launching a unique poker room style based fantasy Champions League game with the Telegraph Media Group. The deal will allow the Telegraph to offer its current 200,000 fantasy players to play for a four figure cash prize using a poker room based contest with a fusion of fantasy sports for the group stages of the Champions League starting this week.
David Galan, CEO of Picklive said: “We have been working with the Telegraph for some time in the provision of the hugely popular daily fantasy sports games which typically last for one match on the Premier League. However given the competiveness and interest in the Champions League, many of the players’ that play our games asked for a mini tournament on the next round of this competition.”
Steve Stiles, Interactive Sports Manager at the Telegraph Media Group further commented,
“This Champions League contest will offer 200,000 Telegraph Fantasy Football managers a compelling way to test their virtual selection and managerial skills in every match throughout the knock-out stages of the Champions League, culminating with a big-money Grand Final on Saturday, May 24.”
