Bundesliga fantasy and how it’s played in FootballCoin
Fantasy sports is backed by a community of millions all around the world. It’s a game of strategy with the world’s most popular game at its foundation. In many ways, it’s the chess of the common man. It’s a modern game that at the core serves a fan’s biggest desire. That of getting to have his/her say into how a football team should be organized.
FootballCoin is a daily fantasy sports game. It uses many of the basic principles of DFS, but brings in some notable innovations as well. In FootballCoin the virtual managers need to create a draft of players. For the Bundesliga, they will need to choose any of the players of the 18 teams taking part in a Bundesliga season.
Managers register to a contest. FootballCoin organizes free contests and also feature private ones, that are set up by other users. The matches selected in the contest are weighed up based on a scoring system that is employed for all participants. The scoring system takes into account most events on the football pitch. It then determines what events require for points to be added to each player’s marking and which events need to have points deducted.
Once the final Bundesliga match included in the contest has been played, results are tallied up. Then, it is up to determine which fantasy manager has done best at creating their strategy. The teams that have won the highest number of points are rewarded. The rewards are expressed in XFC, the cryptocurrency that powers the game and acts as FootballCoin’s official coin.
The Bundesliga is ideal and fertile ground for fantasy sports games. Few competitions exhibit the consistent level of talent displayed by players in the German league first tier. From up and coming youngster to seasoned veterans, Bundesliga offers a plethora of players of the highest level of skill, and challenge for fantasy managers to use their skills in picking the best possible players.
The beginnings of the Bundesliga
The Bundesliga is part of the fabric of everyday life in Germany. It has remained this way since its beginning in 1962. It is interesting to note that the league was created following years of discussion and immediately after a loss to Yugoslavia. Indeed, West Germany was the very last European nation to create its domestic football league. East Germany had already created its own league back in 1950. Upon the reunification of Germany in 1990, the two competing leagues were unified under the Bundesliga banner.
It was hoped that by creating their own league, the German national team would have better chances of creating a strong squad. The same principle has been kept throughout the passing of time. Until the present day, Germany has won 4 World Cup trophies and has been one of the internationally successful footballing nations in the world. It is worth noting that the German national team has always relied heavily on players active in the Bundesliga.
The top tier of German football is in fact known officially as 1. Bundesliga. The prefix is to signify its role, with 2. Bundesliga, part of the same footballing system, representing the second tier of German football. Until the present day, 55 clubs have taken part in the Bundesliga. Of this, Bayern Munchen has been the most successful having won the trophy on 18 occasions. Other noted winners included Borussia Dortmund, Hamburger SV or VfB Stuttgart, teams that registered a good deal of success on the international stage as well.
The days before the fortune and fame
The early days of the Bundesliga were a much different affair to today’s world of fame and stardom. Player jerseys were marked with a number from 1 to 11. Players could not be substituted. The rule was introduced only in 1967. The German Federation’s website reminds us that the scoreboard was operated manually, a ticket cost in the region of 1.40 Marks and only a handful of matches had their highlights broadcast on TV.
Besides, football players could not even dream of the attention received by today’s athletes. At the time of the Bundesliga’s start, players were still not allowed to have professional status. All of them worked other jobs and football was generally seen as a hobby despite the love it received across the nation. The highest paid player in the modern Bundesliga 2018/19, Robert Lewandowski, earns 230.000 Euro per week.
Certainly, the financial situation in football worldwide, as well as in Germany, has changed radically since the days of the 1960s. It is true that football was already a global phenomenon. However, from a marketing sense, many things were different.
The German Federation’s website also notes that back in 1965, television rights, offered, by law, 647,000 Deutschmarks to the clubs taking part in the Bundesliga. Earning more looked to be simply a fantasy. But, in today’s market, the television rights account for more than 2000 times that figure. The league has fans all across the world. The Bundesliga 2018/19 season was the second campaign to be included in FootballCoin. The league is set to continue to be made a priority for next season.
The continuous growth of the Bundesliga
Naturally, the world of football is one that attracts huge amounts of money every year. It seems as if each new campaign brings forth new standards in terms of wages, transfer fees, and infrastructure investments. But, this is what also tends to make the football landscape one that is hazardous to navigate. Financial uncertainty and failure to meet objectives are some of the ways in which organizations can lose their way.
Bundesliga, however, has shown to be quite the opposite enjoying great financial health. More so, each new year seems to make football more profitable for more German teams. During the 2018/19 season, it was reported that the Bundesliga was the only European football league where all clubs made a profit.
This is due to a number of sensible policies employed responsibly throughout the years. The Bundesliga has the highest average attendance record in the world. But, at the same time, the league has lowest ticket prices, on average of any league.
Also, the majority of German clubs are required to be under the ownership of +50% German club members. This has come to be known as the 50+1 rule. These are some of the policies that have tightened the bond between the Bundesliga and its fans.
More so, Bundesliga clubs also favor sponsorship deals with corporations that tend to remain close to the clubs for a number of years. It is a profitable relationship that, yearly, brings in more than €570m in revenue. The league’s entire turnover is expected to be close to €2bn. Financially speaking it is one of the most highly-profitable and well-run sports organizations in the world.
Just how competitive is the Bundesliga?
Football is a global phenomenon. So is fantasy football. Each enjoys the support of millions all over the world. Regardless of location football supporters will tend to encourage their local leagues and teams. But, long term popularity is enjoyed by the leagues that continually maintain a level of quality and competitive play that fans expect to see.
Is the Bundesliga a highly competitive league? In many ways, it is one of the most fiercely disputed leagued. Despite the fact that, in recent years especially, one team, Bayern Munchen, has won the most numerous amount of trophies, the league has top-notch teams at all levels of the league.
As a testament to this stand the achievements of the national teams and clubs in European football. The German national team, known to fans as Die Mannschaft is, traditionally, one of the best in the world, having won the World Cup on four separate occasions. The youth German teams have also won numerous trophies. The majority of players active in those teams represent Bundesliga clubs.
German teams in European football
Bundesliga teams are also known to perform well in international competitions such as the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League. At the time of writing, German clubs have the League (or Champions Cup as it was once known) seven times. The former winners are Bayern Munchen, Borussia Dortmund, and Hamburg SV. The German clubs have also won the Europa League (previously the UEFA Cup) on six occasions. The winners include Bayern, Leverkusen, Schalke, Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt. The now-defunct Cup Winner’s Cup, then the second tier of European football, was won by German clubs five times.
These are some of the reasons why the Bundesliga has been, and remains, one of the most exciting propositions for fantasy football and football managers fans across the world. (Note that the FootballCoin website includes a variety of fantasy football tips and strategies that may be used by managers).
Fantasy football’s rise to fame
The fantasy football leagues and contests have become an integral part of the football world. Fans are attracted to it by numerous things, but especially by the prospect of being able to make their own decisions about what members a squad should consist of.
Despite its immense popularity, one that continues to grow, there was once a time when fantasy sports were, for the most part, something that only those living in North America were concerned with. Italian journalist Riccardo Albini adapted the first set of rules to be used in European football. His example was soon followed with a fantasy league developed in England. Albini would go on to found Fantalcacio, while in England the game would morph into its modern-day version, Fantasy Premier League.
Given Germany’s dependable consistency with which it has always produced great players and the popularity of the BuLi (nickname for the Bundesliga) fantasy football was introduced here quite early. Today there are several such games, with the nation showing a strong interest in the heavy stats reliant game. As throughout most places in the world, the German Bundesliga has introduced its own fantasy football game.
Bundesliga was among the first leagues introduced in the first version of the FootballCoin game. This blockchain powered cryptocurrency game is currently preparing to launch its third version of the game. The Bundesliga has been and remains one of the principal attracts in a fantasy football universe that includes the world’s most important leagues and competitions.
How are the Bundesliga stars represented in fantasy football?
There are a few systems employed in fantasy football games. But, there are a few elements that are used for practically all versions of the game. A manager is required to create a draft of players. Those players represent the actual squad members of real teams in actual competitions. Fantasy sports rates the performances of the players in their real matches. Based on how well they perform, they earn points or have points deducted from them.
Once the matches have ended and all players have received their rating, the points are tallied up and the winning drafts are revealed. FootballCoin works in a similar way but has also set out to innovate.
All the transactions in the game are recorded on FootballCoin’s own blockchain, developed using Multichain technology. An official cryptocurrency of the game, XFC, is used as the lifeblood for it. And, the players and stadiums are represented by cards that once open offer detailed stats about it.
FootballCoin looks to bring together cutting edge technology, with a genuine love for gaming and old-fashioned affection for building a collection. Our readers will likely be aware of the collectible stickers and cards that accompany a major football tournament. The daily fantasy football game of FootballCoin looked to adapt that concept to the world of cryptocurrency games. Until present, FootballCoin is one of the longest standings and fully functional such games.
The system employed for fantasy football Bundesliga
In FootballCoin, as with the majority fantasy sports games, one universal system is set in place. All contestants are judged based upon this system. For FootballCoin, it was important that the scoring system both go in-depth in analyzing player performance, as well as remain simple to understand.
It’s for this reason that the leagues included in the game are split into two categories. The first is the Pro leagues. For this, all of the events described in the scoring system are taking into account. The second list of leagues and competitions functions on the Easy mode. For this one, only the essential events, such as scoring a goal or providing an assist are taken into consideration.
Bundesliga is available under both the Easy and Pro models. The German league is one of the most exciting and unpredictable of all the leagues featured in FootballCoin. This is because each new season brings with it a host of surprising talented players. However, for those studying the teams and their stats, these changes will not catch them entirely unprepared.
Fantasy football is a game that lends itself to those that like to study the favorite teams and players. The winners of Bundesliga fantasy football are the ones that assemble the most efficient team. Because of this, it is extremely helpful to be aware of the players excelling in the technical departments. Knowing the best players to cross, pass, tackle or score may be the element that edges the contests in the favor of a manager.
The fantasy Bundesliga contests
As we mentioned before, there are numerous ways in which fantasy sports organizes its duels between participants. FootballCoin is daily fantasy sports game. This means that the matches it focuses on are the semi-daily matches from across the top leagues.
And, while other games have seasons or leagues, FootballCoin has contests. The contests, public or private, include a number of games from various leagues. A typical example would be a contest that includes all of the Bundesliga matches being played in a certain week. This means that each virtual manager may choose any of the players, of any squad, to fit into their draft.
The public contests are the ones that are organized by FootballCoin itself. Each contest will offer the essential information related to it, prior to its start. In this way, the managers will now what cryptocurrency prizes are stake, what matches are showcased and the date at which the contest begins and ends.
The private contests are those organized by individual members. Based on whether they own a stadium card, they will be able to organize fantasy football contests from 11 members, upwards to a limitless number of managers for 5* stadium cards.
Creating contests and using fantasy football as a social network
We are all brought together towards like-minded people by our shared passions. Fantasy football is no exception. It represents not only a way to get closer to a sport that you enjoy. It is also a way to challenge others’ knowledge of football.
The game of FootballCoin offers all users the option of creating their own fantasy football contests. The organizer will be responsible for deciding on a number of important features. They will have to decide on an entry fee. In turn, the organizer is rewarded with a percentage of the prize pool.
The organizer will also need to decide on which the games the contest will be played over. Those passionate about BuLi may able to choose exclusively matches from the German top tier or create a more varied selection.
The user that organizes the contest will also need to decide on the prize structure. Based on this a certain ratio, or number of participating managers, will be awarded XFC cryptocurrency based on their rankings.
Finally, the organizer will have to decide whether to admit any user access to the contest. Perhaps the organizer merely wants to keep the contest an affair between himself and his friends. in this case, a password may be put in place.
To ensure that the event is a success, the organizer can help promote the contest. Sharing it through word of mouth, chat or social media channels can be an effective way to get others to join. It is also an effective way to meet people who share a similar passion for fantasy football and the Bundesliga.
The free to play system and the fantasy Bundesliga collectible cards
FootballCoin is a fantasy football game where every transaction is recorded on the blockchain. The blockchain is an ever-expanding list of records (blocks), where each new record contains a cryptographic hash of the previous one. The blocks contain the transaction records. Through this FootballCoin can ensure that all activities in the game are secure, transparent and that they move swiftly.
The game of FootballCoin is free to play. Moreover, the cards that represent the players, have been, for their vast majority, free to use by any of the registering managers. In order to create a balance in the game economy and for the game’s ecosystem to be self-sustainable, the very best players in the game are represented by collectible cards. These cards are digital assets that are issued on the blockchain.
The developers of the game, however, took the decision even in the eaarly stages of development that some of the leagues would include only free player cards. This was also the case for the Bundesliga. It meant that any user could pick the very biggest stars of teams like Bayern Munchen, Borussia Dortmund or Shalke 04. It is a feature that has attracted many to the fantasy Bundesliga contests.
Observers will notice that currently there exists a small minority of cards with a 3* ranking or higher in the Bundesliga. These cards need to be purchased in order to be used. But, it should be mentioned that none of these players started out in the Bundesliga almost three years ago when FootballCoin began. The game rules state that once a player is deemed to possess a ranking of at least 3* its status cannot be demoted. Therefore, such players that may have joined the Bundesliga since, have retained their status in fantasy football contests.
Choosing your role in fantasy Bundesliga
Sure, the main way in which fantasy football can be approached is clear. If you are playing fantasy Bundesliga, the goal is to assemble the best possible squad draft. The players will be judged and depending on their performances, your team will receive the honors they deserve.
However, FootballCoin, has been constructed to include a number of other roles. Some of these may be better suited to you, the user, than the role of football manager. For example, you may choose to act out the role of football scout (or agent, if you prefer). The FootballCoin collectible cards can be bought and sold. For these purposes, a game market has been established.
The prices for an individual card sway, becoming cheaper or more expensive, usually depending on the player’s form. Purchasing a card at the right time, or selling it at the ideal moment may turn out to be profitable for the football scout. The rewards will be reflected in XFC cryptocurrency.
Another way in which the fantasy football game can be played is by focusing on organizing contests. Of course, the organizer may also choose to participate. But, his main purpose will be to set up an attractive contest that many managers will want to join. The organizer may feel inclined to try and promote the contest. Especially knowing that they will receive a percentage of the entire prize pool. Note, that users may organize contests of up to 11 participants. Stadium cards grant the option of setting up contests that may include a higher number of users. The cards ranked 5* do not have a limit on the number of users that may join.
Users may also show a higher interest in the blockchain technology powering the game and the innovative aspects of its set up. Furthermore, some may be interested in the XFC cryptocurrency. It acts as the means through which all transactions are completed. The cryptocurrency once owned is no longer the property of FootballCoin. Rather, the owner may do as he/she wishes, storing, trading, gifting it etc.
The XFC cryptocurrency used in FootballCoin
Bundesliga, FootballCoin and fantasy football’s future
Bundesliga is one of the most stable sporting competitions in the world. It is a league that is responsibly run, with all of its participants in good financial health.

Fantasy football has developed into a powerful industry of its own. The existing fantasy sports games are enjoyed by millions of fans across the world. Its popularity has only been an upward trajectory since its beginning.
Finally, FootballCoin enters, at the time of writing, its third season. Three years in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency is certainly a long time. However, the team remains determined to grow and innovate. In its third season, the game will include a large number of new and improved features. The fantasy Bundesliga contests will be enjoyed using these new, attractive and exciting features.
FootballCoin’s main goal remains the same as when it started. The game wishes to create a bridge between the world of cryptocurrency and sports. For this reason, FootballCoin has strived to create a community whose actions will determine the free, non-centralized development of the game.
