The Steem Fantasy Premier League is over!

in sfpl •  2 years ago 


Thanks to everyone that participated in the Steem Fantasy Premier League this year. We had over 80 participants in the league and the amount of users being active in the weekly prediction games were staggering!

When I first started the League I had a feeling that Steem would grow to be a lot more valuable than it was back then. Knowing that the official Fantasy Premier League has over 5.9 million players and their prizes at the end of the season are roughly worth $10k it is amazing that we managed to collect over 3500 Steem over the season which is also valued at ~$10k! During the season we were constantly giving out rewards in SBD to correct predictions, paying authors of the reviews and overviews and now the 3500 Steem will be shared like this.

1st place will receive 30% of the total STEEM.
2nd place will receive 15% of the total STEEM.
3rd place will receive 10% of the total STEEM.
4th-10th place will receive 3% each of the total STEEM.
11th-23rd place will receive 1% each of the total STEEM.
24th-48th place will receive 0.5% each of the total STEEM making it 100% of the STEEM rewards.

The final League standings, congratulations to all winners!

We are very excited about the big amount of prize pool we were able to collect and next season we want to come back as bigger as ever and are aiming for 10x more participants in the league!

This year there is also the World Cup and we are planning on creating a similar tournament for it as well!

To make things easier for me we will be creating a new account for all the games and will be looking for a few developers to help us out build a webpage for predictions, etc. More info to come on that soon!

Lastly, we want to thank the sponsors who helped turn this into one of the biggest free prize pools of any tournament ever created on Steem. A big thank you to @blocktrades for being the main sponsor. Thank you to @roadscape @wackou and @arhag who indirectly sponsored through a delegation and everyone else that supported the posts through votes and resteems!

See you at the world cup and next season with potentially more football leagues! :)

Thanks for running this @acidyo! It's been a great long-running thread over the last 9-10 months and I think this kind of contest is one of the things that works really well on the steem blockchain. Looking forward to the world cup!

This year there is also the World Cup and we are planning on creating a similar tournament for it as well!

I was going to ask you this!! :P

Waiting for that tournament to begin!

I am excited to finally participate in something like this.

Looking forward to participate next season.
In name of all the player who did participate in the past season, I do want to thank you for all the hard [email protected]! I know now how much work is involved!
Also looking forward to participate in your world cup contest! Don’t forget to register for mine. We already have 120 entries!

Can't believe I did so badly in this but I'll be sure to have another go in the World Cup one!

Wating for those tornaments, You support minnows like us a lot.

Man, this has to be one of the longest lasting series of posts I've seen on here. Really cool that you had so much participation with it and that it was super successful. Definitely attempt this again for the next season if you feel up to running it again. Probably must have been a pain in the ass occasionally, lol.

Yeah worst part was checking predictions manually with the team... really hoping we get that automated somehow for next season.

I'm always willing to help out with this by coding something that automates it, just contact me on Discord at Amos#4622 if you are interested!

I am gutted I didn't join Steemit before the season started as I ended up on 2272 points, but I'll definitely participate next year!

Cool, I'll keep you in mind! :)

There has to be someway to do it I reckon, plenty of people have fantasy football websites/systems online that have automation. Maybe make a post about it and see if you can't find a coder to help you on here. Seems like there's a pretty decent amount floating around.

Many Many congrats to the winners and BTW what was the duration of this league? And when is the next league?
Man this is worth participating with handsome prizes at the end :D

The season lasts around 10 months. ^^

That's huge time lol

IT was a great Idea and I had really fun to manage my team into the prize pool.

Thank you so much @acidyo for providing this great opportunity. In fact it was this game of yours the main reason which brought me on steemit spending quite a lot of time and now I am an addict of the platform. Besides the prizes which you have been sharing with the players of the match prediction game, this one in my opinion has served me to somehow reduce my expenses as far as putting some money on sports betting is concerned. I am not spending that much on betting as I used to spend before.

Nice!

Thank for you @acidyo. I like steem fantasy premier league. Steem fantasy is the best.

HI THERE!!!! WELL CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS IN THIS SEASON!!!!!

Surely winning the #FACupFinal makes you the best team in England and not by winning the #PremierLeague?
I mean far more teams compete in the FA Cup and if you'are the one who wins it at the end shouldn't that make you the best?

Didn't know there was a Steemit fantasy premier league, will be looking forward to join next season.

Also looking forward for a fantasy world cup :)

Big respect to you mate for a huge coordinating job and I can't wait to join in the fun for the world cup and next season and of course my congratulations to all the winners :-)

Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Pending payout - Ranked 3 with $ 461,37

Let the World Cup be launched and good luck and to have a peak of participants, through which also myself I am ready to get on the play. Such activities brings us together and reach the platform target of building communities with hobbies in common. Will follow up on this and ready to participate when the start will be given.
I am also building a contest with my colleagues at work so I want to see if I can overlap or integrate somehow this activities.

I love about sports blogs that you make very nice friends.

I'm late to participate, but I hope to be able to enjoy with you the fantasy of the World Cup I'll be waiting for you. the feclicito by the initiative

Was a pleasure writing for you for the first half of the season, and I think we did a great job. Also I think things like this could attract thousands of new users if given some media exposure. I have no doubt in my mind that next season it will surpass the official prize pool by at least 3x.

See you next season @acidyo! Did you receive my message on Discord?

Anticipating for the following period of FPL

World Cup dream would be incredible and ambitious start of imagination football during the current year.

It has been a great season :)

Hey man so if we were late to join the season. Will we still be able to make accounts and play fantasy for the World Cup? I missed this years by a few weeks was quite dissapointed since I’m an avid fantasy player. Will definitely keep an eye out for next years and get in early.

Even though I didn’t get in appreciate you and the crew for setting this up and essentially help build the sports community here on Steemit!

Hopefully the future is not only the world cup, but after that there are also other leagues in europe that come to be your priority to make the contest, not just the English league ..

No puedo quedarme por fuera del concurso para el Mundial 3:)
