Mondogoal Adds Fantasy Sports Partnership with FC Barcelona to its Roster

The world's most digitally advanced elite sports club launches pay fantasy games with one of the world's fastest-growing fantasy platform developers

RAMSEY, Isle of Man and BOSTON, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mondogoal, one of the fastest growing global fantasy sports platform developers and marketers, today announced the addition of FC Barcelona as a team partner.  FC Barcelona, the largest and most engaged club in all of sports in terms of social media followers, is the first La Liga club partner for Mondogoal, and joins Premier League and Italian Serie A clubs as team partners promoting Mondogoal's club-branded version to its fans around the world.  The FC Barcelona version of Mondogoal, FCB Daily Best XI, is now live at www.mondogoal.com/fcbarcelona.

"Adding FC Barcelona to our stable of team partners is exciting for many reasons.  Barca is football, from Cruyff and Maradona on through Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry and of course Messi, Neymar, Xavi and Iniesta," said Mondogoal CEO and Founder Shergul Arshad. "More importantly, FC Barcelona isn't just football.  FCB is the largest, most engaged club in the world on social media, with over 80 million Facebook followers, and we know that following will be key to the success of our partnership. Their fans are passionate and involved in all things Barca, and this is a new, fun and innovative way for them to follow and participate with their friends and supporters around the world, in real time."

Because Mondogoal is licensed to operate globally, it is the only daily fantasy sports site available for cash play in multiple major markets around the world, with specific emphasis on the United Kingdom, United States and Canada.  In 20 weeks since full season launch with its partners in soccer, Mondogoal is already offering major cash prizes throughout the week, and the adoption of a new form of engagement with fans of soccer clubs not used to fantasy play is growing exponentially every week.  With Mondogoal, simply login or create an account, add funds, and every matchday there is the chance to win money by building a formidable starting 11 and competing in a Head-to-Head battle or Multi-User-Tournaments. 

Data analytics for use by consumers are compiled in real time by Perform's Opta Sports, with points awarded for goals, assist, tackles won or lost, shots on goal, passes completed, shutouts and much more.  Mondogoal runs contests on a daily or matchday basis for La Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Major League Soccer, Ligue 1, the FA Cup, European Championship Qualifiers and the prestigious Champions League and Europa League.  

For a full set of contests and to sign-up today please visit: www.mondogoal.com/fcbarcelona.
