Fantasy sports are one of the most beloved activities by sports fans around the world. With more than 40 million fantasy sports players in the United States alone, it's no surprise that this activity is so popular. But which type of fantasy sport is the most widely played? According to a recent study by FIFS and KPMG, India has more than 100 million fantasy cricketers, and experts predict that this number will jump to 400 million in the next decade. Fantasy Cricket has become the biggest fantasy sport, with Dream 11 being the most popular game.
Players can participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and other tournaments. But why do people play fantasy sports? Studies by the Fantasy Sports Federation of India (FIFS) show that it's largely for social reasons. In addition to Cricket, Fantasy Baseball is also very popular. It's unpredictable and exciting, since users can't predict the results of 162-game seasons.
Plus, the games heat up as we approach the final of the season every October. NBC Sports Predictor started with just over 18,000 participants, but the last race of the season had more than 111,000 participants. This shows how popular fantasy sports have become. The Premier League's official fantasy games have also become very popular, as fans create their own leagues with friends, family and co-workers and also have their teams ranked against all other users in the world.
But there are plenty of other sports that attract a small number of fantasy players: UFC, cricket, golf, fishing, even surfing and darts.In conclusion, fantasy sports offer fans around the world an opportunity to manage multiple real-world teams and players. It's no surprise that this activity has become so popular - it's social, unpredictable and exciting!.
