Micro Fantasy Announces Partnership with Chicago Bandits for 2017 Softball Season

Mobile App for Play-by-Play Prediction Contests Makes Spectating Fun for Anyone

Brecksville, Ohio, USA – Tuesday, May 30, 2017: Micro Fantasy LLC has announced a partnership with the Chicago Bandits to provide its Micro Fantasy play-by-play prediction contests for all Bandits 2017 home games. The team won its second consecutive National Pro Fastpitch Championship Series in 2016 (and fourth overall). The Bandits are one of the longest tenured teams in the league, which recently partnered with Micro Fantasy for its National Pro Fastpitch 2017 College Draft in April. Micro Fantasy was also piloted at the 2016 National Pro Fastpitch Championship Series.


All attendees of 2017 Chicago Bandits home games with the Micro Fantasy app installed on their mobile phones (iPhone or Android) can participate in Micro Fantasy prediction contests. Those watching through npftv.com can also participate in the contests.


Contest participants predict the results of game action in real-time. Points are awarded for correct predictions. The participant with the highest point total is the contest winner.


“We consider ourselves to be leaders in sports marketing innovation, and Micro Fantasy is on the cutting edge,” said Chicago Bandits General Manager Toni Calmeyn. “We are excited to offer the contests to our fans at all Bandits home games this season.”


Version 1.7 of the Micro Fantasy prediction contest mobile app is currently available for download through the Apple App Store and Google Play. An online version is also available on microfantasy.com.


Other teams and leagues offering Micro Fantasy prediction contests include the Akron Racers (home games), also of National Pro Fastpitch, Cleveland Indians (all games), Florida League (all games), and Lake Erie Crushers (home games).  In-person attendees at these games, as well as television/online viewers and radio listeners, can participate in associated Micro Fantasy contests.


“National Pro Fastpitch has a tremendous product and very enthusiastic fan base,” said Micro Fantasy Founder and CEO Joel Crites. “We expect Micro Fantasy contests to be a very popular addition at Bandits home games this season based on the high level of participation at the NPF Draft and last year’s Championship Series.”


Micro Fantasy LLC plans to announce partnerships with other teams in the near future to provide Micro Fantasy prediction contests during their games. It will also announce the availability of Micro Fantasy prediction contests for several more sports.
