With mere hours to go until World Cup 2018 officially kicks off, the excitement has reached fever pitch here at DailyFantasyUK HQ! We’re not gonna lie, we got a little carried away this month— what with all the decorating, fridge stocking, flag waving and line-up perfecting in preparation for our favourite competition. Sadly, that meant we ran out of time to complete our Get To Know series.
Greetings DFS-ers! Long time no see. We took a little break because, quite honestly, England’s incredible performance at this year’s World Cup was almost too much for us to take. Now that we’ve peeled our jaws off the floor and settled back into regular life, it’s time to turn our attention to the new season.
Before we settle in to check out some of the big games this weekend, we thought we’d check in with Twitter and see what some of our favourite teams and players are up to. Here’s a few gems we stumbled upon:
Lingard Wants a FIFA Makeover
We know footballers are famous for taking pride in their appearance (David Beckham in a sarong, anyone?) but Jesse Lingard took things to another level this week. He has a bone to pick with EA Sports, who didn’t manage to get the hair on his avatar exactly right in their highly addictive FIFA game.
Can you change my haircut now please had the same trim on your game for 99 years 🙃🙃🙃 @EASPORTSFIFA

And can you also change my physicality to 99 @EASPORTSFIFA

Everything’s Hunky Dory At Man U HQ (Apparently)
Ahhh, look—Jose’s so happy to be back with his boys. Turns out everyone can just get along. For a few snapshots anyway.

We can finally say that World Cup 2018 is right around the corner! In just a month and a half the planet’s best football teams will be heading to Russia to compete for the greatest trophy of them all. The only problem is that this means we have very little time left to explore the remaining countries! This is the 8th installment in our Get to Know series, so make sure you’re caught up on the teams we’ve already covered.
Spring is in the air and it’s inspired the sports fans here at DailyFantasyUK to go back to our roots and remember why we got into fantasy sports in the first place. If you’re starting afresh this April and fancy taking up or re-visiting DFS as a hobby, you’ve come to the right place.
Welcome back to our World Cup 2018 series! We’re taking a closer look at some of the top class teams making their way to Russia this summer. Make sure you’re all caught up on some of the lesser-known teams before we get started on the big boys.
Greetings fellow DFS-ers! This month we’re expanding our horizons and turning to a sport we don’t often discuss here are DailyFantasyUK: Rugby. It’s perfect timing too, because the Six Nations is well under way and it’s as exciting as ever!
The only Premier League action this week is at Stamford Bridge, where a less-than-convincing Chelsea take on West Brom. Antonio Conte’s side are still reeling from the terrible performance that saw them lose 4-1 to Watford last week. The only goal for the Blues came from the man our money’s on tonight: Eden Hazard.
The origins of fantasy sport are somewhat disputed. Some say it began amongst golf fans in 1950. Others suggest the first fantasy football league appeared in Oakland in the early ’60s. The closest thing to modern fantasy sports appeared in 1980, when it was an idea scribbled on a napkin by a journalist.
You may still be in a January funk, but it’s time to shake yourself out of it and start prepping for one of the biggest nights on the sporting calendar. It is, after all, less than a week until the most important game in American football kicks off. Yes, Super Bowl LII will be hitting our screens this Sunday and we’re here to tell you when, how and why you should tune in!
It’s only 6 months until World Cup 2018 finally kicks off and we could not be more excited. As Russia gears up to host what is sure to be a thrilling contest, we’ll soon be turning to the OG teams and weighing up their chances of glory this summer. For now, though, it’s time to concentrate on one of the final wild cards of our series.
Greetings football fans and happy New Year! Now that we’re officially in 2018, we don’t need to make any excuses to look ahead to the World Cup—it’ll be upon us in a matter of months! With this in mind, we’re cracking on with some new teams. If you’re a DailyFantasyUK regular, you’ve already buffed up on Panama, Peru, Iceland and Senegal. An impressive start, sure, but there’s plenty more to cover!
Here at DailyFantasyUK we’d like to wish you all a belated happy Christmas. You might have thought that you’d opened all your presents already, but Santa’s not the only one who’s brought you gifts this festive season!
One of the (many) great things about DFS is that, because you can play a variety of sports, there’s always something exciting on the calendar. Christmas is no exception. In fact, we’re entering one of the busiest periods for major games! Andy Williams wasn’t lying, it really is the most wonderful time of the year.
