Daily Fantasy Football - A game which turns fans into suckers
The beginning of Daily Fantasy Sports and Daily Fantasy Football in the late 2000er was inspired by the format of the online poker boom which started around 2003 with Chris Moneymakers Win of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas/Nevada. Especially the US gambling market profited a lot from the upcoming online poker boom. Like many examples before it needed some time to get the boom over to Europe, Asia and Australia. A lot of goverments wasn´t so sure what to do with their laws, taxes and much more. Over the years the industry has changed their face and the market cooled down over the past 5-6 years.Back to the Daily Fantasy Football idea of Chris Fargis in 2007. He was thinking a completly new way to enjoy the game of Fantasy Sports which was original established in the early 60´s and 70´s back in Oeakland and NY City. His goal was to take the time frame of season long fantasy sports leagues and shrink it to matchday-games instead of waiting the whole season. The idea behind that was to get more people to enjoy every game of their teams. On top of that the players could potentially make more money out of their hobby.
Let´s look into the current situation back then for the DFS market and especially into the Daily Fantasy Football market in 2007-2008. In the following graphic you can follow the progress and the growth over the past 30-40 years of Fantasy Sports in general.
Progress and development of Daily Fantasy Football 2008-2016
When we go into details about that progress you clearly can see what happend after Fargis introduced the world to his idea about DFS. Today nearly 60million people are playing Daily Fantasy Football and Daily Fantasy Sports worldwide.Let´s do a little overview about the current market situation and the preview for the next couple of years:
As you can see in today Fantasy Sports world North and Central America is the big continent for playing those kind of game. Europe has still second place but there is a huge potential for growth over the next decade. The other continents like Asia, Australia and South America are in in very big trouble if legal issues are going against the market.
The prediction for Daily Fantasy Football in the next 4 years is surely not that easy. But if you are watching the progress since 2014 you could see some signs of development in other parts of the world. Especially in Europe as you can see in the upper graphic is the growth really an upcoming factor in the world of Fantasy sports. But in Asia is a big development factor and will double their numbers in the next couple of years.
