Fantasy sport is that kind of sport that people participate them through their mobile devices or personal computers without stepping into the field. An individual is allowed to become a manager and build a team that will participate in a match and earns points to help them win awards, money or end the season with a trophy. The most popular fantasy sports in the world right now are fantasy cricket and fantasy premier league. I will take fantasy premier to make it simpler to explain how this sport work and how people can play them from the comfort of the devices.
The first step is to sign up for an application that offers this kind of sport to be a member to be allowed to participate in the matches. Once the registration is complete you are awarded one hundred million dollars worth of budget which is virtual money to be used to build your squad. The squad has to be made of fifteen individuals who are drawn from the two teams that are going to participate in that match. A whole squad must have two goalkeepers a and the rest have to be in matches of five.
The next step is selecting your first eleven players who are going to kickstart the match. The eleven players are selected from your squad leaving three to be on the bench for substitution. The eleven players selected one has to be a goalkeeper for the game to start. Players can be less than eleven but not less than seven for the match to start. This has to be done at least an hour before kick-off but some fantasy application sites allow modifications thirty minutes before kick-off.
The next step is earning points. One has to know how the system rewards points so that they can be able to derive maximum points from the game. Points are always awarded for each goal, assist, save and clean sheet the goalkeeper manages to keep. There is also a bonus system that awards points to those players who have been listed on that system if they get to score or assist or make a save. This notifies the manager who is the person participating in the game to know what players to always prioritize and who to bench to enable his team to earn more points.
Once the team ha been selected, it can join the league, there are many leagues and one has to choose the one that is confirmed and has a few members to compete with to have better chances of being ranked among the best.
A manager is allowed to make transfers once the transfer window is open to strengthen their squad or to offload some of its players. Or one can make the transfer as the league is on but will be forced to lose points depending on the league but for the premier, a fantasy player loses up to four points. The team can have cards that we call chips to allow them to make modifications on the team without losing points.
