With the start of the 2015 WSL Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour just days away we are pleased to be able to tell you that the ever popular Fantasy League is back. The WSL Fantasy League gives the likes of us mere mortals the chance to be a part of the World Tour and the opportunity to show off your knowledge and craft a dream team of surfers to try and top your chosen group.
The concept is extremely simple and there is no charge to enter a team. Firstly you need to give your team a name (the funnier the better) and decide which group you want to enter your team into. Then simply pick eight surfers to represent you at each stage of the tour. The athletes have been seeded into three groups (A, B and C) and you need to choose 2 surfers for group A, 4 for B and 2 for group C.
Building your team is straight forward and it is worth noting that after each stage of the tour you get the opportunity to make substitutions and hopefully ditch the dud’s and improve the squad. The WSL Fantasy website gives a breakdown of the Surfers stats and also includes a full set of rules.
You can create your own private group and invite your friends to enter a team or search through and find an open group that takes your fancy. Surf Report have created their own open group and all are welcome to enter, unfortunately there is no prize on offer but we will give the winner a big shout out and you are welcome to brag about it as much as you want!
If you fancy creating your own Fantasy Team or getting a group started then head over to the WSL Fantasy site here. If you fancy entering your team in the Surf Report group you can follow this link to our league. Get creative, build a super squad, maybe include a wildcard outsider, but most of all have fun. Once the Championship Tour get’s underway you are able to watch the events unfold live and can watch your team’s progression at the WSL website.
