Cellcard ups the ante in fantasy league with iPad

The Phnom Penh Post fantasy league has received a welcome boost ahead of Saturday’s mouth-watering start of the Barclays Premier League. Prize sponsors Cellcard have revealed they will “up the ante a bit” by offering a 3.5G iPad as the reward for the overall champion.
Gameweek prizes will once again be US$20 phone vouchers and a Cellcard T-shirt, with managers collecting US$10 vouchers each in the event of a tie.

The fantasy league will also be highlighted on local TV channel CTN’s weekly football programmes, with presenters entering their own teams into the competition and announcing weekly winners and top teams during their shows. CTN have secured rights to broadcast all BPL games live this season. The league has now been rebranded the PPP/CTN fantasy league.

Following on from its popularity last season, which saw over 250 registered teams, the league table is buzzing with fresh squads ready to do battle. Already more than 150 managers have entered, although only 40 have so far registered their details – including team name, manager name, real name, phone number and occupation – via email. Managers must be aware that if they do not register their team by email to [email protected] before winning a gameweek, they will not be allowed to collect their prize.

To submit your team, please go to fantasy.premierleague.com, select a squad within the budget requirement, and enter the code 42804-14678 to join our league.

There are also new terms and conditions for this season published on the league’s forum page, including the restriction of transfers per gameweek to four.

Last term’s standout points grabber was Chelsea talisman Frank Lampard on 284. However, can the rampaging midfielder justify his 13.0 price tag once again, or will it prove better to gamble on some of the BPL’s foreign debutants? Choose your teams wisely, your captains doubly so, as competition will be fierce to match the intensity of the world’s most watched football league.
