Hi! Welcome to Noah Hoffman Fantasy Cross Country! If you’ve played before, thanks for coming back. If you’re new to this, thanks for trying it out.
I first launched Fantasy Cross Country for the 2015 World Championships as a way to give fans a personal stake in international cross-country skiing, and I expanded it to a season-long competition for the 2015/2016 season. I hope it has given (or will give) you a little incentive to follow the FIS Cross Country World Cup, watch the races and cheer for your favorite athletes!
The number one feedback we received last year was that Team Selection deadlines were restrictive, so for the 2018-19 season we made a change to move it much closer to race time. Team selection closes before the first race of a weekend, and before each race of the World Championships and Tour de Ski. Trading will close as late as possible before the first race of the weekend but assume that it will be closed up to an hour prior.
You can read all about these changes on the How to Play page. It’s not hard; don’t be intimidated!
This year we have joined forces with Boulder Nordic Sport to help run operations of the game. You will notice that we are using a new domain, fantasy.bouldernordic.com, and you’ll see even better prizes than we have had in the past.
Most importantly, this game is all about you: the players. If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reach Adam Mahar, our amazing programmer, at email@example.com.
