I am very excited to announce that Noah Hoffman Fantasy Cross Country is back and live for the 2017-18 World Cup! We have made some big and exciting changes from last year.
First, we have added Fantasy Dollars! You will still be able to select up to 8 men and 8 women for your team, but now you will also have to stay under your budget of $100,000 fantasy dollars. Each althlete has a value that changes each week. The athlete’s cost is based on their overall World Cup points from the 2016-17 season, their year-to-date points and the number of Fantasy teams that have selected them. Learn more on the How to Play page.
Second, this year we have joined forces with FasterSkier.com to expand our marketing. Not only will our reach be bigger than ever before, we will also have more relevant content to help you pick your team. FasterSkier is also taking over management of the fantasy prizes and is asking sponsors to make financial contributions to help cover the site’s expenses. In return, fantasy now has a new domain: fantasy.fasterskier.com.
All of the great features of Fantasy from years past are back! We again have an amazing prize list from our generous sponsors. The Concept2 Team Challenge is back for North American teams and clubs, and the grand prize will again be a SkiErg from Concept2. And as always, you can create your own league to play against your friends.
I hope you will play fantasy to have a personal stake in the FIS Cross Country World Cup and to be inspired throughout the winter to get outside and do some skiing of your own! Get started here.
Thanks as always for following along and for your support!
