Fantasy Football has joined the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 party for the first time ever as the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) today confirmed the competition will be another way fans across the Continent can engage with the football drama.
With the final 23-strong squads of Asia’s largest-ever cast of 24 teams now officially confirmed ahead of Saturday’s kick-off when hosts UAE take on Bahrain at the Zayed Sports City Stadium, fantasy managers can now test their prowess at emulating some of the world’s greatest coaches in taking the hot seat.
Football fans can now create their dream teams and manage their best eleven from 552 of Asia’s leading stars, which include 2018 AFC Player of the Year, Abdelkarim Hassan from Qatar, Korea Republic’s Son Heung-min, Islamic Republic of Iran’s 2018 FIFA World Cup goalkeeper, Alireza Beiranvand as well as UAE sharpshooter Ahmed Khalil.
Aspiring managers will be allocated $100 million to kick-start their fantasy journey, rising to $105 million for the knockout phase and will be required to confirm a squad of 15 players, select their starting line-ups and preferred formations before each match.
In addition to ‘bragging rights,’ participants also stand to win exclusive AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 merchandise in the Round and Phase stages as well as the Grand Final which will reward the top three in the overall leader board.
The latest fantasy football contest will bring the captivating drama and world-class action closer to fans, capturing every assist, every shot, and save. More importantly, it is built on the back a vibrant and comprehensive campaign to thrill and enthuse the global digital community, following last month’s launch of the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Prediction Challenge.
