Sure, everyone is all jazzed up about the imminent return of the Premier League season. I certainly am, and I know many of my readers are too. I’m even co-hosting another event at Rhinehaus in Cincinnati so you locals can come and enjoy the festivities in a proper pub environment for such an occasion.
And while most fans are looking forward to the action on the pitch and the camaraderie shared when watching games together with fellow supporters — or at bare minimum, using it as an excuse to have a pint at 7:45 in the morning — there’s one other element that most fans love about the start of the new Premier League campaign…
Probably one of the single largest productivity-sucking activities around the globe, the official Fantasy Premier League game is played by a mind-blowing 2.5 million people. And I’d be willing to wager that you’re one of them. And though it can be frustrating at times, it’s normally oodles of fun. If nothing else, it gives us yet another avenue to exchange friendly banter with our friends. There are prizes on offer, of course. But unless your some fantasy football bad ass, your odds of landing any of the Premier League’s extravagant prizes are slim to none.
But to help mitigate your fears of inferiority, I’ve decided to give you a much more realistic opportunity to win something… by launching the WSOTP Premieraliga. Yep, that’s right: I’ve opened up my very own league in the official EPL Fantasy game. And you can join! To do so, just follow the steps below:
- If you don’t yet have a team, head on over to the Official Site and start one.
- Once your account is created, you can join the WSOTP Premieraliga by entering the code “11389-4142” in the League tab. Or you can click this link to do so automatically: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/my-leagues/4142/join/?autojoin-code=11389-4142.
- Pick your team by this Friday, August 16th.
And what about the prize I mentioned earlier? The league entrant who has the most points at the end of the season — well, aside from me — will have their pick of the shirts on offer in the WSOTP Shop! And with more shirt designs soon to be added, you’ll have even more to choose from. And unlike in my prior giveaways where you winning was left to chance, you have total control over your chances of winning. Perform well enough, and the shirt is yours come May 2014.
So… about time you go and sign up, right?
