Participants Guess Position of Next Player Chosen, Earn Points When Correct


Brecksville, Ohio, USA – Thursday, March 15, 2017: Micro Fantasy LLC has announced a partnership with the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) league to conduct a Micro Fantasy prediction contest during the 2017 NPF College Draft. The league successfully piloted Micro Fantasy prediction contests during the 2016 National Pro Fastpitch Championship Series in Tuscaloosa, AL.


The 2017 NPF College Draft will be held on April 24, 2017 in Nashville, TN. The draft will be streamed live on NPF-TV.com. All draft attendees and online viewers with the Micro Fantasy app installed on their mobile phones (iPhone or Android) will be able to participate in the Micro Fantasy NPF College Draft prediction contest.  Prizes will be awarded to participants with the most total points for correct predictions.


“Micro Fantasy prediction contests were very popular at our 2016 Championship Series,” said Gaye Lynn Wilson, NPF Vice President. “We are very excited to expand Micro Fantasy contests to our 2017 College Draft. They will bring a whole new level of fan interest and excitement to one of the biggest days on our league calendar.”


Version 1.5 of the Micro Fantasy prediction contest mobile app is currently available for download through the Apple AppStore and Google Play. An online version is also available on microfantasy.com.


Micro Fantasy piloted its prediction contests for several sports in 2016 including the National Pro Fastpitch National Championship and select Akron Rubberducks, Lake Erie Crushers, Lake County Captains, Kent State baseball, MLB, NFL and NBA games. In-person attendees at these games, as well as television viewers and radio listeners, participated in associated Micro Fantasy prediction contests.


“I attended National Pro Fastpitch games for the first time last year in Tuscaloosa, and the on-field product was excellent,” said Micro Fantasy Founder and CEO Joel Crites. “The passion of the fans was also very evident, and Micro Fantasy was a big hit with them. I’m sure it will be again at the 2017 NPF College Draft in Nashville.”
