Fantasy for the minor league?


Many people play a fantasy league on, like the NHL, NBA, NFL or something. The idea is normally to "manage" the team or some players and then perform in different ways as a coach and in comparison to others.
Most often this is done with the very top notch league.

A company in Sweden however figured out their own version of the game - but instead they aimed for the minor leagues in soccer... well this was last year.
It sounds like this was very successful. Small team suddenly had a fantasy league to offer their own close fans and the interest for the little team soared.  But that was not the only thing - the players also really liked this, since the fantasy system suddenly also keeps their own statistics in order, and another good thing from this is that the local club also can make some extra revenue on these fantasy leagues.

If we understand this right is was all a success. And right now the company guldfemman expanded to cover minor leagues in Ice Hockey and Floorball in Sweden too- starting this fall.

If this is a fantasy - for sure it is not - here's a page that describe this in a cryptic foreign language..

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
