The whole idea of fantasy soccer was initially made in Italy in the 90s by Albini. It was brought to the attention of the public by a magazine publishing company as they boosted their gaming platform at the start of 1993 football season even though it had difficulties for you to enter, it had to be done through premium-rate telephones or by sending a letter. The problem was that the internet had not yet been installed to the public and these two ways were the only ways of taking part in the game. All systems handling the custom teams of gamers had not yet been automated and scoring took more time than expected.
Initially, the maiden fantasy soccer game was presented to the public in the US by Will Winkenbach back in the early 60s. This sports lover made Greater Oakland Professional League and this is how the first fantasy football game was played. Fantasy Premier League became famous in the US and had a huge number of players in the late 80s. The game was officially brought to England by Wainstein in the early 90s as he was amazed by the fame of the US Fantasy Football and began Fantasy League Limited. In the mid-90s, Fantasy Premier League came to life in the UK when a television show by the name ‘Fantasy Football League’ was created and hosted by two comedians.
Telegraph premiered their game along with Wainstein before the 1993-1994 season. The game attracted a large interest even though a slow system managed the entries. The first online version of fantasy soccer began in the US in the late 90s and was controlled by CBS sports. Yahoo mailing website created its free online fantasy game whereas the official FPL began at the onset of the 2002-2003 season when less than eighty thousand contenders participated.
As the years go by, fantasy soccer and Fantasy Premier League have made huge steps. To date, FPL alone has over seven million teams. This has given rise to a growing international fan base in internet sites, YouTube channels, and social media user accounts covering FPL. A game that was formed for recreation and fun has gradually changed into a worldwide hobby which has at the time become more than just a sport. If back then there were advanced tech as is now, then probably the FPL would have started a lot sooner. Great rewards and prizes are offered for resilience and overall winners who get lucky and earn enormous points from their custom teams.
