It has been an exceptionally hot summer in Germany and coincidentally, the DFL has been cranking up the heat too by developing sizzling new features surrounding the much-loved Bundesliga fantasy game. This is particularly exciting for the league’s broadcasting partners, as they’re now given the opportunity to embed a casual game version of the “Bundesliga Predictor” football pool on their own websites.
With “Bundesliga Predictor” and “Bundesliga Fantasy Manager,” fans have two different options to connect with their favourite league between match days. With the brand-new casual version of “Bundesliga Predictor” now being available on partner websites as well, broadcasters may benefit directly from increased fan activation rates and an increased tune-in on match days or for individual matches, while fans also stay involved during the week, as they place their picks for match outcomes.
The individual “Bundesliga Predictor” casual game will be available on the partner’s online domain. However, the DFL will provide and maintain all technical work included. Game appearance may be adjusted to the partner’s CI in font and colour story for a more inclusive look and feel. Also, if a partner has licensed specific matches, game activation can be tailored to those specific bouts.
In addition to the new casual game options for partners, existing features have been updated and improved: A game widget may now be embedded into a partner’s existing online presence such as a website; in “head-to-head-challenges,” friends can battle their buddies, and registration-free participation allows for playing anonymously. “Bundesliga Predictor” is obtainable in both German and English, and a mobile responsive web version of the game is available.
“Bundesliga Fantasy Manager” has also undergone an extensive revamp, as many features have been upgraded: Since the start of the 2018-19 season, real-time information about players is available, so fantasy managers are now able to tap into updates about injuries, suspensions, and starting line-ups and can adjust their fantasy team line-ups accordingly. Other improvements include an enhanced user experience (UX) and increased personalization options for communication to fantasy managers through email and push notifications. The optimized scoring system now reflects Bundesliga players’ actual performance, and with a “player wish list” for transfers and an instant team value overview, two exciting new features have been added.
Keeping current with the actual players’ performances is key to a successful fantasy sports ranking: According to a recent survey by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, 64% of fantasy sports players stated that they are watching more live sports because of their participation in fantasy. In addition to the established German and English versions, the “Bundesliga Fantasy Manager” app for Android and iOs is now also available in Spanish language, while the mobile responsive web version is obtainable in German and English.
