The Fantasy Footballers -- the world's most popular fantasy football podcast and 2017's "Best Fantasy Football Podcast" according to the Fantasy Sports Writers Association -- will hit the road this summer on their Fantasy For The People Tour, presented by DRAFT. They'll be bringing their award-winning The Fantasy Footballers Podcast: LIVE to New York, Philadelphia, Dallas, Minneapolis, and Phoenix. Tickets are on-sale Friday, May 25.
Over the past four years, The Fantasy Footballers have ascended to the top of the sports podcast world. Listen for free here:
In 2016 & 2017, The Fantasy Footballers Podcast was the winner of the "Best Sports & Recreation Podcast" and "People's Choice" awards from PodcastAwards.com, as well as the 2016 "People's Choice" award from the Academy of Podcasters. The Fantasy Sports Trade Association also named them the "Small Fantasy Business of the Year" for 2017. It is the highest rated fantasy sports podcast in iTunes -- and its second highest rated sports podcast -- and has tens of millions of downloads from dedicated fantasy football fans each and every year. In 2017, the show was downloaded over 30 million times.
The show's hosts -- Andy Holloway, Mike 'The Fantasy Hitman' Wright & Jason Moore -- are three longtime friends and former tech/gaming professionals who bring their fans and followers a holistic approach to fantasy football expertise. Their rankings consistently prove to be among the most accurate year-in and year-out according to Fantasy Pros, but their approach emphasizes more than just stat sheets and excel docs: It's about winning the mental game, reading between the lines, finding the diamonds in the rough, and mocking your friends while you succeed. They've also welcomed top NFL players onto the show, including Todd Gurley, Nick Mangold, David Johnson, Allen Robinson and Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson.
Fantasy sports has emerged as one of the premier pastimes for sports fans, with over 59 million players in 2017 alone. The Fantasy Footballers are an invaluable resource to this generation of sports fans, and their emergence as an independent, leading voice in the field is a testament to their passion as well as their incredible dedication to the sport of football.
