Mondogoal Creates Fantasy Sports Engagement Partnership With Chelsea FC

One of The World's Elite Sports Brands Launches Pay Fantasy Games With One Of The World's Fastest-Growing Fantasy Platform Developers

RAMSEY, Isle of Man and BOSTON, Jan. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mondogoal, one of the fastest growing global fantasy sports platform developers focused on the world's biggest sport of soccer, today announced the addition of Chelsea FC as a team partner.  This latest partnership further cements Mondogoal as the partner of choice with global soccer clubs. Chelsea joins a growing list of  Premier League, La Liga and Italian Serie A clubs as team partners promoting Mondogoal's club-branded version to its fans around the world.   The Chelsea version of Mondogoal is live at: http://www.mondogoal.com/chelseafc.

"There are few global brands, let alone soccer clubs, that are more progressive and respected than Chelsea FC," said Mondogoal CEO and Founder Shergul Arshad. "On the field, they have won everything there is to win, and count legends such as Zola, Terry, Lampard, and Drogba.  They are currently the top team in the EPL behind Hazard, Diego Costa and Fabregas, among others.  In the digital space, their cutting edge work in engaging a worldwide fan base  is well documented, and we know that the addition of a unique pay fantasy platform for a first time will extend their engagement with fans even further."

"As a club we always looks to engage our global fan base in new ways, we see fantasy as a next great opportunity, and are proud to partner with Mondogoal on this new venture," said Mark Bell, Head of Licensing, Chelsea FC. "We have seen studies that show US daily fantasy sites get 70% of their revenue from NFL games, but around the world  70% of global sports wagering is directed at soccer, so this partnership should be well received by our followers."

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, Canada, Ireland, and Brazil.  In just over 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. Participants must be at least 18 years of age (19 in Alabama, USA and Nebraska, USA) and meet the minimum age requirement in their jurisdiction or territory to contract and use the Site and play the Contests in the jurisdiction, territory, or location where they are gaming.

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.
