West Ham United has become the latest Premier League football club to enter into an agreement with daily fantasy football provider Mondogoal.
The new partnership allows the club’s supporters to win cash via daily fantasy football games, where players build a starting eleven and compete in head-to-head battles or multi-user tournaments against other fans from around the world.
The games are available on every real-life matchday from the Barclays Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga, Major League Soccer, Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
The game sees points awarded for goals, assists, tackles won or lost, shots on goal, passes completed, and clean sheets, among other things, with stats compiled in real time by Opta Sports.
West Hame join the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Italy’s Roma in partnering with Isle of Man-licensed Mondogoal.
Felicity Croft, head of commercial for West Ham United, said: “Gaming has been an extremely popular category for West Ham fans and we believe this innovative platform that combines the fun of fantasy football with a daily format for free or cash play will catch on with our fans.
“We also believe that with the upcoming move to the Olympic Stadium, Mondogoal will be a perfect partner to be showcased at the Boleyn Ground and our future new home."
Mondogoal CEO and founder, Shergul Arshad, added: “We are excited to add one of England's most historic teams, West Ham United, to our roster of clubs in partnership with Mondogoal. West Ham has embraced the true Mondogoal experience and is excited to take this to its passionate fans in ways that we think will be creative and ground breaking.”
