Wednesday March 18, 2015 : MONDOGOAL TO LAUNCH WOMENS WORLD CUP FANTASY GAME

A first for any women’s team sport

Isle of Man-based fantasy sports platform developer Mondogoal is planning the launch of a daily pay fantasy game for the 2015 Women’s World Cup due to take place in Canada from June 6 through July 5, 2015.

The company said the game is the first daily pay fantasy game available for any women’s team sport.

"The Women's World Cup is a phenomenal platform for the game, and will draw not just passionate soccer fans but a casual audience interested in both women's sport and the majesty of a global event," said Shergul Arshad, chief executive officer of Mondogoal.

The game will raise the visibility and interest in women’s sports in general, Mondogoal said, not just in soccer.
