AUSTRALIA'S FIRST AFL DAILY FANTASY SPORTS CHAMPION TO BE CROWNED THIS SATURDAY!

AUSTRALIA’S FIRST AFL DAILY FANTASY SPORTS CHAMPION TO BE CROWNED THIS SATURDAY! 

The world’s first free-to-play In Venue Daily Fantasy Sports competition, CoachKings, is set to host its season finale, The CoachKings Cup, this Saturday night during the GWS v WBD match. With $50,000 in cash to be won, including $20,000 for first place, it’s set to be a historic night for the country’s best Daily Fantasy Sports players.

CoachKings is a unique Daily Fantasy Sports competition that uses geolocation software to allow players to enter a game day fantasy football team while in their favourite pub or club. Winners of each contest qualify into a Venue Final, with the best performers from each Venue Final qualifying into the CoachKings Cup.

CoachKings has become a major player in the Daily Fantasy space offering a unique and free entertainment experience to patrons of pubs and clubs across Australia. “It’s a world first! Players have really taken to it and it has been a big win for the venues that have signed on in our first year” said CoachKings Product Manager, Luke Martin. “The feedback has been great. Players love it as it not only gives them a greater interest in games but it makes the visit down to their local a more social experience. Fantasy Sports in the past have been associated with people hiding behind computer screens, the CoachKings In-Venue concept has actually helped bring people together.”

On Saturday, September 17th Josh Penney of NSW won the NRL CoachKings Cup. In front of a packed house of qualifiers, all on the edge of their seat prior to the final siren, Penney walked away with $20,000 in cash and the inaugural trophy.

The AFL CoachKings Cup will be hosted concurrently at The European Bier Café in Melbourne, Morphett Arms Hotel in Adelaide and The Waratah Hotel in Hobart. Qualifiers will be onsite enjoying the venues hospitality and will enter their teams on the CoachKings website via their smartphone.

The AFL CoachKings Cup Champion will walk away with $20,000 cash, with the top 20 players all taking home cash prizes.
