"Our fans can now visit ImpactWrestlingFantasy.com to compete against one another the same way that tens of millions of Americans play fantasy football, baseball, basketball, golf and other fantasy sports each year," said Al Ovadia, Chief Marketing Officer of TNA Entertainment, LLC.
"Our fantasy engine takes fantasy sports and entertainment to the next level, and may even change the way our fans tune-in. We have created a unique scoring system, a schedule that requires line-ups to be locked prior to IMPACT WRESTLING tapings, and 'fantasy seasons' that will last three months , in which fans can build teams that accumulate points based on IMPACT WRESTLING stars that they select to be on their fantasy rosters, " added Ovadia.
Fans can create a fantasy roster to compete in the main public league free of charge, or upgrade to the premium Commissioner Package for less than $2 a month, which allows the user to create and customize an unlimited amount of their own private leagues to compete against friends and family, and hold live online drafts with league mates. The game includes customizable scoring, a live trash talk/trade talk feature, and real-time live scoring functionality, which enhances the fan experience, allowing access to a real time play-by-play of events and tally of fantasy points during each episode of IMPACT WRESTLING and Pay-Per-View broadcast.
"This isn't your average fantasy sports and entertainment game," said Paul Hickey, President/CEO of Fantasy Brand Marketing, LLC, the official fantasy partner of TNA Entertainment, LLC .. "A word to IMPACT WRESTLING fans and fantasy sports players alike – it's not what you think. Wait until you see what we're awarding points for and how we're awarding them. Wrestling Matters…and everything that happens throughout every show matters when it comes to trying to win your fantasy league."
- Prior to Season One of the IMPACT WRESTLING Fantasy Game, a one month free trial period will begin with the summer's hottest Pay-Per-View, "TNA Slammiversary" on June 12, allowing fans to build their leagues, hold their live drafts and set their rosters.
- Rosters will lock prior to each IMPACT WRESTLING taping, assuring no unfair advantage for anyone who attends a live taping, or reads about the results.
