Soccerex’s Euro 2012 Fantasy League Champions Crowned

Tue 3rd Jul 2012 | Football Industry Events

After Spain’s comprehensive defence of their title brought the UEFA European Championships to a close, there was another spectacular finish with the Soccerex Euro 2012 Fantasy League coming to its climax.

The game, powered by Fantasy League Ltd, attracted over 1000 users from all over the world, allowing people from across the industry to test their skills against friends, colleagues and their international counterparts during the tournament. All participants are being contacted about the winners of the league prizes which included an iPad2 16GB, an England shirt signed by Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Bryan Robson, John Barnes, Phil Thompson, Terry Venables, Mike Summerbee and Stuart Pearce, a Manchester United shirt signed by Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Dimitar Berbatov, Bryan Robson and Denis Law and a Brazil shirt signed by Carlos Alberto Torres.

After 3 weeks of intense competition, inspired substitutions and last minute drama Soccerex is delighted to confirm that the winner of the main league was James Root from SEO specialists HP Group. James has won a VIP trip for two to the Soccerex Global Convention 2012 in Rio including flights, 5 star accommodation and VIP passes.  

After a successful response to the game, David Wright, Marketing Director of Soccerex, said: “We are delighted with the reaction we have received for the Fantasy League game and hope the game added extra excitement to the tournament for those who played.  I would like to offer my congratulations to all the prize winners and particularly James; I look forward to seeing you in Rio.”

James Root, HP Group commented: “I am over the moon to have won; the game was a huge amount of fun within the office and very easy to play. A few tactical substitutions seem to have won it for me and I am very excited to attend the Soccerex Global Convention in Rio to witness the world’s leading business football event.”
