MLS Salary Cap Challenge launches new fantasy game: Salary Cap Challenge

Do you live in a fantasy world? Yeah, so do we.

Which is why we are so excited to introduce two new fantasy games this year.

Salary Cap Challenge is, as the name suggests, a “salary cap” game, so you get to have any player you want on your team, as long as you can manage your budget. You will be able to pick your roster, and the first of three seasons this year will begin with MLS First Kick, on March 15, when the Seattle Sounders welcome the LA Galaxy (ESPN, 6:30 pm PT).

Here are some of Salary Cap Challenge’s highlights:

  • Custom leagues
  • Live advanced stats during matches
  • Facebook Connect login

And, yes, there are prizes. Because what would a fantasy game be if the winner didn’t get something real.

Here are a few for the MLS prizes available in Salary Cap Challenge:

  • All-expenses-paid trips to marquee MLS events
  • Cash prizes (paying players only)
  • MLS gear

For the Official Portland Timbers Salary Cap League, we'll have great prizes each week for the top managers as well as overall prizes at the end of the season. You have to be a fan of the Timbers on Facebook to take part, good luck!

If that’s not enough, a full-blown “league manager-style” game, Fantasy Challenge, will launch in the coming weeks. Channel your inner John Spencer. Create custom leagues, hold a draft, make trades, and try to outmanage, outmaneuver, and outplay your friends.

Stay tuned for more details. And enjoy the fantasies.
