Americans are big fans of fantasy sports. In fact, almost 30 million people in North America play in a fantasy league, according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.
The leagues allow participants to control virtual teams, choosing and trading players from the real world of sports to be a part of their online roster. Fantasy teams then “compete” against one another, using their players’ actual statistics from real games.
Now a free, new Web site lets entire families get into the game. www.FamilyFantasySports.com includes easy-to-use auto drafts and small manageable rosters as well as fun, interactive content for both parents and kids.
There is no “trash talking” or other offensive content, and prizes focused on education and family time are awarded each week. Over $40,000 will be given out in total to be used toward college tuition—including five first-prize awards of $5,000. Additionally, NFL merchandise will be awarded to top teams throughout the season.
