Fan Controlled Football (FCF) Doubles in Size
Live Sports Merges with Fantasy & Video Game Elements
Fan Controlled Football (FCF), the tech-focused indoor football league, has secured a global broadcast deal with DAZN for the 2022 season.
FCF launched last year with a unique selling point allowing fans to have influence on everything from team names and branding to team selection, league rules, as well as individual plays on the field. The aim is to combine live sports with fantasy and video game elements that offer an alternative to more established sports leagues.
This interactivity has gained traction and in the opening round of fixtures last season fans made more than 250,000 combined play calls.
For this second season, FCF is doubling in size to eight teams, with two of the new sides controlled by collectors holding a Ballerz Collective non-fungible token (NFT). Other teams are owned by a range of celebrity investors, including athletes and musicians.
