I almost didn’t run this, but then I saw that the most popular group at SquadGod had under 300 members and I thought – can SL beat them?
I’m hoping you guys can, so please hop on over to the Soccerlens group at SquadGod, join and get started with your fantasy football team.
And yes, there really are $1,000 and £10,000 prizes up for grabs and there are only 2 days left till the signup deadline, so hurry up.
The winner of the Soccerlens SG group will win a minimum of $1,000, regardless of where he or she ends up in the overall SG rankings. The only caveat here is that for the $1k prize money to be valid, there MUST be 200+ members in the SL group. Right now there’s only me, but I expect you guys to blow me away with your support 🙂
In addition, I’ll be working each month to secure sponsors for the competition, meaning that by the end of the season there will be plenty of free stuff to go along with the cold hard cash. I’ve already got SubsideSports and Main Event hooked in to provide free shirts and La Liga match tickets – and I’m sure there will be much more to come.
So go ahead, sign up to the Soccerlens SquadGod group for a shot at an easy $1k. And make sure you tell your friends about it – I’m putting the $1k prize money up myself so I’d like to see some interest before parting with it 🙂
Note that the Soccerlens fantasy football game is open to all, free to play and someone could win £10,000 (The the £10,000 prize is open to all teams entered into default groups, such as the SL group, and the manager who’s team has the highest cumulative score at the end of the 2007-2008 premiership season will be eligible for the prize).
