Want to be a GM and create the best team all over Europe? Here’s your chance with the EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge.

Per EuroLeague: “The 2019-20 EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge is ready for the world’s most passionate basketball fans to again manage their own Turkish Airlines EuroLeague teams. Now in its 16th edition, the fantasy companion to Europe’s best basketball has engaged over a million players since the first edition in 2004, while rewarding hundreds of winners with coveted prizes, and bringing 15 of them to the Final Four!

As you probably know, EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge is more than just a game, but a contest too, with great prizes awarded all season long. As always, the Grand Prize allows the winner and a friend the ultimate Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four experience: to be special guests of the Euroleague at the 2020 Final Four in Cologne, Germany, including four nights at a hotel, two VIP tickets to the games, and the opportunity to celebrate on court with the new champions!

So what are you waiting for? Start thinking now about all the teams you can build and manage and – who knows? – maybe you can be our very special guest at the 2020 Final Four!

You can compete against your friends, too! As during the last two seasons, there will be two types of private leagues again. The classic private leagues that EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge users have learned to love over the last 15 years gives them a chance to compete in a smaller league with friends. The head-to-head league allows participants to play one-on-one showdowns against another participant, forming a season-long competition.

There will be some small modifications, too, this year. Mainly, no backup players will be available in the game. Choose your eight players with extra care, and take into account that with no bench spots to fill, you will have extra fantasy money to buy your favorite EuroLeague superstars!

The game’s dynamic will be the same as always: performance index rating will determine each player’s score, with a 10% bonus if his team wins. Three trades will be allowed per week, while unlimited trading will be available in the playoffs and Final Four. Additionally, you can choose your own team captain! Make sure you choose wisely, however, because your captain in each round will score double points! You will be asked to choose a vice-captain, as well, in case your captain does not play for any reason.

Start playing EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge now, and if you prove to be the best player out there, you will be a VIP guest at the 2020 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four!”
