What is fantasy football?

Fantasy football is one of the most popular skill-based online football games in the world. Much like fantasy cricket, a user has to pick 11 players within 100 credits. A certain number of players has to be selected from each of the four positions - Goalkeeper, Defender, Midfielder, and Forward. The captain’s points get doubled, while the vice-captain receives 1.5x points. Player points are allocated according to their performance in the actual match.

Fantasy Football in India

Fantasy football has evolved over time and has become an exciting and nail-biting virtual competition. When it first began in August 1971 by Bernie Donelly in England, it was confined to the local dailies. Now, fantasy football sites and apps are where anyone can enter into and compete in these fantasy games. In India, the fantasy football game became popular due to the premier football leagues. 

The most popular league was the English premier league, which had a lot of fans in India. People were crazy about Manchester United and Arsenal players. Slowly, the Spanish, German and Italian leagues also became popular. Thus, the era of fantasy sports started with many legal gaming websites and apps. But the best fantasy football app is the First Games App, where you can pick your team of 11 footballers based on the scorecard and ranking. 

You will also get to use your skill and knowledge to pick the right team combination and a captain and vice-captain so that you can score the maximum points and win the cash prizes. The best part is that you have access to not only international league matches but local football matches as well. While you can create a team with popular players like Cristino Ronaldo and Messi, you can also create a local team with Chennai and Kolkata players. 

These fantasy football gaming apps are completely legal as they require your skill and strategies to create the perfect team of 11 footballers. Skill games are all protected under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution of India. So, you should download the First Games App today and start creating your own fantasy football team to win big cash prizes.
