Fanball is one of the offerings of SportsHub Technologies, a fantasy sports company home-based in Minneapolis, MN and with offices in St. Louis, Connecticut and Wisconsin. SportsHub offers several different types of fantasy games ranging from daily fantasy sports (Fanball) to season-long prize contests (CDM Sports) and large jackpot national contests (NFFC & NFBC).
SportsHub Technologies recently purchased the MFL10s best ball franchise from MyFantasyLeague.com.
Why did MFL10s move?
As you are most likely aware, the regulatory environment for fantasy football games has changed drastically over the course of the past two seasons. Games like MFL10s are now required to be licensed in many states, and the cost and requirements of compliance has become burdensome and prohibitive for companies with limited game formats such as MyFantasyLeague.com.
You can read details and background on the history of the changes here.
Why did they move to Fanball.com?
Fanball.com is fully compliant and licensed in all states (except…). And they already have a growing user base and a growing list of game offerings, including Draft Only leagues and salary cap games across various sports. And they are committed to keeping the MFL10s game format in 2018 and beyond to allow all previous and existing MFL10s customers to continue enjoying MFL10s at various price levels.
What you care about:
- We're not changing the core of MFL10s. You will see the same scoring system, same league and roster size and the same best-ball format.
- We will have different draft offerings besides the traditional MFL10s 8-hour slow draft
- This includes both LIVE DRAFTS (online) and 4-hour slow(ish) drafts
- There are slightly different payout structures for a few different styles of leagues
- Classic - which pays out first and second
- Top 3 - pays out... the top 3 (clever name)
- 2x leagues - pays out the top 6 teams
