LoveFootball is a fantasy football social gaming platform that allows Nigerian football loving fans manage an online fantasy team (comprised of their favorite players across different teams) in a season long competition that runs concurrently with the European League season.

Users can pick a team of 15 players (11 starter and 4 subs) from any of the 20 teams in the English Premier League. However users can also select out-of-England based star players like Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Messi, as long as they play within Europe.

LoveFootball is basically  free to play but users can upgrade for a small fee to allow them get an increased budget which allows the user buy better players. A free account will allow you manage 1 team with a virtual money budget of 100 million. For N450, you can upgrade to ‘Basic Pro’ and manage 3 teams with a 115 million budget. And finally, ‘Super Pro’ at N899/month will grant you access to 5 teams and 125 million budget.
