Fantasy Football has become the nation’s fastest growing pastime over the last few years and the Fantasy Premier League site alone has over 4.5 million players worldwide.
Our podcast has grown with the sport, which is poised to become as huge as it’s American namesake. In the last three-and-a-half years since we have been releasing podcasts, we have watched a colossal growth in the game, which has also seen our listening figures and popularity rise alongside it. We started by recording our ramblings on an iPhone to a dozen people and now have listeners in 50 countries around the world. This season we have been covering Draft Fantasy Football; a concept that makes hundreds-of-millions of dollars in revenue in America, and has just landed on these shores. Fantasy sports – and particularly Fantasy Football – is the future.
