The Premier League is the most watched football league in the world. Having played football and been a fan since I’m 6 years of age, I find it interesting that there aren’t many quality applications/websites that offer fun football games for all ages free of charge.

The main type of sports fun punters like to play is gambling. Obviously, this isn’t suitable for all ages and has a negative effect on people who will lose their money and become addicted to the punt. My thinking was that there needs to be a suitable application that keeps users engaged for the full season of the Premier League were friends, family, work colleagues can all chip in and compete their football knowledge against each other’s. An application that will keep users engaged for the full season from start to finish.

The best fun football website in the market right now would have to be Barclays Premier League Fantasy football. Without a doubt every year my work colleagues, football teammates, family and friends, all create private leagues for competition. And without a doubt every year after 4 or 5 weeks 90% of the league members have given up or forgotten about the league and its left with no activity. I believe this is down to some bad features implemented into the app, like strange prices for players which don’t fall into users budgets and only having one free transfer a week when you have a squad of 14 players are just two examples.

The aim of Fantasy Futsal is the exploit the bad features of its competitor’s apps/website and create a high quality site that will keep users of all ages engaged for the full Premier League season.
