In this growing and competitive market, FanThrowdown.com aims to surpass its competition providing the easiest interface, a variety of exciting gaming options, and the most extensive player information in the business. The interactive website will allow fans to construct free, paid, private, public, and multiple buy-in leagues in the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, and NCAA football and basketball. Plans include NASCAR and PGA to enter into the mix shortly after launch. Players can live chat with competitors and can win thousands of dollars in prizes daily by participating in league play.

Before kicking off this fall, the site is generating buzz among future players by offering a chance to play in a game that will pay $1,000 to the winner. Fans can submit their email address on www.FanThrowdown.com or on the Fan Throwdown Facebook page.

The fantasy sports industry has been booming over the last several years, with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association estimating that 32 million people age 12 and above in the U.S. and Canada played fantasy sports in 2010. However, the daily fantasy sports games are relatively new to the industry, and allow people the flexibility to play more games without being “stuck” with the same team throughout an entire season. The daily fantasy sports paradigm also allows players to enter several games a day. Players are able to choose their stakes, the number of competitors, as well as dictate payout structure. While the current leaders in the industry are companies from England and Canada, FanThrowdown is proud to be an American-based company.

“We are excited about the potential of this industry as it grows exponentially each year, and we’re designing our site to serve the fans and make the game of daily fantasy sports even more engaging, entertaining, and rewarding for them,” said Jonathan Mongero, President of FanThrowdown.com, a company based in New York.

FanThrowdown.com will launch in fall 2012 with the $1,000 Free Roll for those who get entered early. Once it’s up and running, the daily fantasy sports game offerings for fans will offer free and paid competitions, along with several other surprise features that will be released upon the site’s launch.
