Addition of the soccer league makes it the first non-US sport added to the leading friendly bragging rights game.
BOCA RATON, Fla. – MobilityWire® – November 29, 2011
OHK Labs announces the addition of English Premier League soccer to the list of available sports in the SportsPicker game. Matches begin Saturday, December 3rd, 2011, and picks can be made starting today. English Premier League joins NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, NCAA Football and NCAA Basketball as supported leagues and marks the first non-North American sporting league.
“We’re huge soccer fans here,” said Oren Kantor, OHK Labs CEO. “I’m personally really excited to start picking some English Premier League games!”
SportsPicker, now available to all Facebook users, can be found at http://apps.facebook.com/sportspicker. There is no charge to play, and anyone with a Facebook account can get started immediately.
Key features of SportsPicker include:
- Innovative points-based system rewards players for picking underdogs over favorites
- Support for nearly all popular professional and collegiate sports, including NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, NCAA Football and NCAA Basketball and now English Premier League
- Built on the Facebook platform, SportsPicker keeps track of a player’s point totals and automatically builds a leader board to compare friends’ point totals
- A simple one-click method for choosing a winner of each individual game. Players can select picks for every available game in a matter of seconds
- Free, ad-based revenue model means that users can play at no charge, increasing the size of a player’s competition pool
- SportsPicker’s safe, non-wagering system, provides a risk-free method of picking the winners of sporting events
- SportsPicker allows people to pick teams to win, an important distinction from traditional fantasy games, which center around individual players
“We’re really looking forward to continuing to expand our supported leagues,” adds Kantor. “We hope to follow this up with other European soccer leagues, as well as cricket and other sports.”
SportsPicker is the only game of its kind available on the Facebook platform, currently estimated to contain over 750 million subscribers worldwide.
