How to play Munster GAA Fantasy Game
The Sportego System allows fans, who enjoy adding to their match-day experience, the opportunity to play a unique Pick-5 Fantasy Game for each Munster Senior Hurling Championship match. All you have to do is simply choose the FIVE players you think will have the biggest impact on the game!
Log onto the Munster Fantasy GAA website (www.munster.gaa.ie/fantasy), fill in your details, and then choose your selection of FIVE players across both teams.
You earn points from your players when they score a goal or a point, but they will lose points if they pick up a yellow, black or red card. We are now including points for scores from play and score assists for the Championship: Assist is the legitimate pass from either: the hand, foot or hurley to scorer from a team member. There must be clear evidence to prove that the assist was given by a fellow team member as outlined above. This eliminates flick ons that are unclear and 50/50 breaks. Munster GAA Fantasy Game reserve the right to call the assist and if there is any doubt the assist is not given.
The scoring is greater for backs/goalkeepers than it is for forwards and backs/goalkeepers can also pick up additional points if no goals are conceded. Teams/Players for selection will be posted on the website once they are available (normally 48 hours before throw in) and will be announced on Munster GAA twitter and Facebook.
NOTE: It is important to register early, as in the event of a tie, the person who registers first will be the winner. (If a player changes their selection, the time of the registered change applies) Munster GAA will continue to post updates via the website www.munster.gaa.ie and on Twitter and Facebook.
