Scorrd Fantasy league: the first hockey fantasy league ever

Create your World Cup’s hockey dream team and win a 2 years Gryphon Sponsorship package!

Scorrd, with the support of GRYPHON and Fan Arena (provider of fantasy sports software), has launched the first Field Hockey Fantasy league ever. The game will allow fans to engage on a complete new level of entertainment as they pit their wits against colleagues and friends. 

The Scorrd Fantasy League is based on the next Hockey World Cup, hosted by the International Hockey Federation in India (Bhubaneswar) from November 28th until December 16th.

Fantasy users are able to pick their dream team among all the World Cup hockey players. With a budget of $100M you can pick 11 players that will become your World Cup dream team. Spend the budget as you like but keep in mind you need a balanced team.

Your score will depend on your players’ performance on the real-life matches in Bhubaneswar. The scoring criteria include: type of goal (field goal, pc goal, stroke goal), team result, cards, goals against,… The best 3 players of each team will receive a bonus; and so does the player you have chosen as your fantasy team captain (x1,5). Every user will have the chance to transfer 2 players after every round. If some of your players are underperforming they can be transferred and you can get new ones. 

Be the best manager you can be, as the winner of the Scorrd Fantasy league will get an amazing price! 2 years Gryphon sponsorship package for the winner!
