Submit StumbleUpon FantasyBet has become the first fantasy sports provider to offer daily fantasy contests for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.Starting on Friday 7 June for the opening match between France and South Korea, the site will give fantasy managers the chance to pit their wits against each other in free-to-enter and pay-to-enter contests, with bigger prizes up for grabs for the more high-profile fixtures. “The women’s game deserves a good Fantasy Football game,” said Viktor Enoksen, one of the founders at FantasyBet. “Football is simply more thrilling when you play fantasy. This is our way of adding excitement to a tournament we believe can be a gamechanger for women’s football.” Entrants must build a squad of players within a budget cap, with points being awarded and deducted depending on how the players perform. The managers with the highest points totals at the end of each contest will win a share of the prize money.FantasyBet are kicking off the Women’s World Cup with a 6-a-side £1,000 freeroll game that covers the opening round of group games, including England’s opener against Scotland.“Our 6-a-side format makes it even easier for fantasy managers to build a great team,” explained Jamie Reeves, Content Manager at FantasyBet. “Managers can choose six players from one nation should they wish, or they can spread their budget across several teams that they expect to do well.“Players can also score points for actions like key passes, goal-line clearances and battles won, but they’ll lose points for mistakes like conceding a penalty or gifting the opponent a goalscoring opportunity.“This means players who aren’t always involved in the attacking action can still be of huge value: if you contribute to your team’s performances, you’ll be rewarded.”FantasyBet is hoping to contribute to the growth in popularity that the women’s game has enjoyed since 2015’s World Cup. “We’re hearing more and more about women’s football,” Enoksen added. “Content creators and publishers are starting to realise that the intricacies of the women’s game are every bit as engaging and intriguing as the men’s.“The problem has always been exposure. With our daily fantasy offering, we’re aiming to bridge the gap between the men’s and women’s game by giving fantasy managers a platform to research around the sport and pick the strongest teams possible. And they can win some cash in the process.”When asked who they’d like to see win the tournament, Enoksen kept his cards close to his chest. “We’re an international team, so there’s definitely going to be some tension at FantasyBet HQ as the tournament progresses,” he said. “Then again, we’re hosting a special £500 tournament every time England plays, so if they get to the final that’ll mean plenty of opportunities for managers to win big.”The team at FantasyBet has also created plenty of content to help those fantasy managers that are still yet to get to grips with the best budget striker options in the women’s game. With a guide that includes bookmakers’ odds, set-piece takers and under-the-radar bargains, plus a special podcast dedicated to women’s fantasy football, there are plenty of resources available on the site’s blog.

Maurizio Sarri says returning to Italy to manage Juventus is the ‘crowning achievement of a long career’ after a year in charge of Chelsea.Sarri was presented as the new Juventus boss on Thursday following his signing on a three-year contract from Chelsea, where he won the Europa League in his final game in charge.The Blues agreed a compensation package with the Italian club, understood to be worth around £5m for Sarri, who felt he needed to return to his native country for “professional and personal needs” with his two elderly parents living there.Sarri said: “Juve are the best Italian club right now and offered me a chance to return to Italy. It’s the crowning achievement of a long career.“It’s been a long journey for me made up of gradual steps. I’m happy to be at the most important team in Italy and this is a further step forward after the experience at Chelsea.“I preferred to go abroad to avoid going from one Italian team to another. The Premier League experience was amazing, but for family reasons I desired go back to Italy.“The opportunity was given by Juventus and it is I think also the climax of the career. I feel I have respected everybody.”Although Sarri spent all of his managerial career in Italy up until joining Chelsea, he thinks Serie A is not up to the Premier League’s standard.“It’s going to be an exciting year in Serie A, especially for the coaches. There’s a long way to go but hopefully the league can start to close the gap with the Premier League.“Chelsea FC had a lot of technically gifted players but with diverse characteristics, less fluid but just as solid.“I realised being in England how amazing their stadiums are, the atmosphere in football in Italy has to change through infrastructure.”The Italian succeeds Massimiliano Allegri, who won five consecutive Serie A titles and brought Cristiano Ronaldo to the club last summer, and Sarri said it will be an honour to train the Portuguese great.“At Chelsea I coached some very strong players, but training Cristiano Ronaldo will be yet another step forward. I’d like to help him break some new records.“When you have a player with the qualities of Paulo Dybala or Cristiano they can play in any role. What can change is only the interpretation of the role.“You have to have clear ideas on two or three players who can make a real difference for the team and then give them an environment to truly express themselves. If a team enjoys itself on the pitch then the spectators enjoy themselves and this is fuel to win.“For three years I would wake up and think about how to defeat Juventus, because they were a winning team. I gave 110 per cent but we still couldn’t do it. It was an experience and I will now give everything for this club.”Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici added: “Maurizio Sarri was always the first choice. We tried to make him understand right away that we really wanted him.“We had clear ideas from the beginning, but we had to have respect for a coach that was under contract with another club and for this we thank Chelsea for their professionalism.” Source: Sky Sports
