A Trip Down Memory Lane
How FIFA Soccer has evolved since first hitting the market
Fantasy football first hit the UK market in the early 1990s. However, this was before the internet revolution and managers had to go through the cumbersome process of using premium rate telephone rates to submit entries or enter their seasonal games via post.
The evolution of the internet has changed all that. Not only have we seen the introduction of more complex game rules and scoring systems but players now have the opportunity to participate on a daily basis, courtesy of the many daily fantasy football contests that allow for line-ups to be submitted on different competitions.
It’s a similar story with another football related game that was introduced to the masses shortly after fantasy football came along. FIFA Soccer, which is generally recognised as the best video simulated football game on the market, allows players to have a more hands-on approach, in terms of dictating proceedings, whereas fantasy football managers can only sit and pray once the action gets under way.

Football is known as the beautiful game. It will be fascinating to see what sort of innovation is introduced in the future!
