Fantasy Football Scout are delighted to be working with Fanslide, a completely new kind of Fantasy game played live on one-off matches.
Fanslide’s unique app is set to take the Fantasy world by storm, with managers making live decisions throughout the game.
How to play Fanslide
In Fanslide, you choose three players at any given time by ‘sliding’ them into the game when you think they’ll perform well.
However, each individual player can only be used for a maximum of 20 minutes, so manage their time wisely. Rather than picking premium assets and sitting back, you’ll need a strategy to maximise your points return. To help with this, players can be removed at any time to save their remaining minutes for later.
Powered by live Opta data displayed on a vidiprinter, players win and lose points for a range of actions. For example, a goal is worth 20 points, with one given for each dribble or interception. Defenders earn clean sheet points if they don’t concede in the 20 minutes that you have them.
Although there are a lot more points on offer than in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), the scoring is easy to pick up. Players then earn single, double or treble points depending upon which spot you slide them into.
So a goal when Mohamed Salah is in ‘x3’ brings in 60 points and three Bournemough defenders who don’t concede in the opening 20 minutes will pick up 30 points plus whatever else they’ve earned for blocks, saves, headers won etc.

Fanslide is free to download and play, with cash prizes on selected matches such as the £500 up for grabs for Monday’s clash between Manchester United and Liverpool (for players in Great Britain).
The game has been designed and built by a group of football-loving friends in London who were frustrated with in-play betting and decided to create a more exciting live Fantasy-style game instead.
“Fanslide adds a whole new layer of excitement when you’re watching football on TV. It’s immersive and interactive and while you’re competing against your mates and the rest of the world, you’re also seeing the game through a different lens, noticing players and their contributions in a new way.”
“We wanted to create a better way of adding excitement to football than just betting on it, and with Fanslide you can use your knowledge and reading of the game to win. If you’d like to deposit and bet on the outcome of your games, you can choose to do so in a safe and sustainable way, but Fanslide is and always will be, free-to-play.” – founder Joe Cocozza

Practice some slides this weekend and see if you can take home a share of Monday’s big prize pot.
