Boston, MA (May 9, 2011) – Major League Lacrosse (MLL) announced it has partnered with Pointstreak for another season to bring lacrosse fans the exciting and competitive MLL Warrior Fantasy Challenge. With the top players in the country playing for MLL, the fantasy game is sure to be competitive each week, providing fans with a fun way to procrastinate in the office, compete with friends, and win major prizes. Simply click on the "Fantasy" button on the Major League Lacrosse homepage and register today. Don’t have an MLL team in your area? No problem! You can watch all games live on ESPN3.com and check out real-time stats on our stats page, provided by Pointstreak.
Presented by Warrior, fans will have a weekly shot at winning a brand new stick, given to the top scorer each week. At the conclusion of the season, the top ten cumulative scoring leaders will receive major prize packages including products from MLL partners such as Sports Authority, New Balance, Warrior, RapStix, Fathead, Skinit, EFX, and Upper Deck. The cumulative season winners will be awarded prizes on a tiered system with those finishing first, second, third, etc. receiving the biggest and best prizes.
How it works
The Fantasy season will be the same length as the MLL season. Participants are allowed to draft players at any point in time during the season, but once the drafting process is complete, they will be locked in for the remainder of the season. You will first have an opportunity to draft attackmen (6 players), then midfielders (6 players), then defenders (6 players), then goalies (2 players), then face-off men (2 players).
Each player will accumulate points based upon the on-field performance of their chosen team of MLL players. Real-time scoring updates will allow participants the opportunity to track their team’s progress online following the conclusion of each MLL game.
The scoring system for the Warrior MLL Fantasy Challenge takes into account offensive production, defense, face-offs, and goaltending statistics, providing fans with a realistic experience to act as a General Manager of their own MLL teams.
The Warrior MLL Fantasy Challenge is free to join. Registration begins immediately. Please CLICK HERE to register!
Good luck and enjoy the season!
