LEGACY FANTASY SPORTS LAUNCHES A YEAR-ROUND FANTASTIC GAME THAT USES TODAY’S PLAYERS AND YESTERDAY’S LEGENDS
The company’s seed round led by footballing icons and business leaders is funding exclusive technology allowing fans of all ages to use former and current players on the same roster
DETROIT, Mich. –News Direct– Legacy Fantasy Sports
Legacy Fantasy Sports, a free year-round fantasy sports app, today announced the official launch of its game and app for consumer download. Using its innovative, patent-pending technology, powered by comprehensive historical and current data from sports data giant Stats Perform, Legacy Fantasy Sports provides a one-of-a-kind fantasy sports platform. The mobile app allows users to create rosters with players from today and legends from the past, extending each sport’s fantasy season from months to every day of the year. The unique gameplay allows the user to play anytime without the need for live sports. Legacy Fantasy Sports is a non-gaming fantasy platform, allowing users of all ages to play, unlike traditional daily fantasy sites, which have an 18+ market.
Legacy Fantasy Sports was co-founded by four-time Pro Bowler and Detroit Lions legend Herman Moore, and developed with the support of former University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops, as well as the producer of films and Cleveland Cavaliers co-owner Gary Gilbert.
“The sports world is emerging from two years of pandemic shutdowns, game postponements and a lockout that have threatened the MLB season – all impacting fans’ ability to play fantasy sports. We decided to change that,” said John Latella, co-founder of Legacy Fantasy Sports. “Our pandemic, injury, strike and even retirement proof game is here for fans to play whenever they want.”
Patent-pending, proprietary software includes historical game-by-game and player statistics dating back to 1997 for the NFL and 1974 for MLB. Play-by-play stats of former players (Legacy) are selected from the historical catalog of play-by-play stats from their career to give users the value of a full set of stats in a real-time fantasy experience.
“Every sports fan argues with the generation that came before them about the best players in history. We’ve built a definitive way to answer those questions,” said Grady Toombs, co-founder of Legacy Fantasy Sports. “This game-free game can also be enjoyed by teenage sports fans who don’t have the opportunity to play other fantasy sports games until they turn 18. We want to get them excited and involved long before that.”
NFL, MLB and NBA games are now available for free play live on the platform, with the option to subscribe and play with retired NFL and MLB players as well. Other innovative features are also available, such as in-game substitutions for live and legacy players, as well as a triathlon experience, where users can choose athletes from three different sports to combine on a single roster. Other sports, including football, cricket and hockey, will soon be available on the platform.
Legacy Fantasy Sports is available on iOS and Google Play stores.
