Fantasy Sport Websites Are 3 TIMES More Sticky Than News Websites

Published on

In recent years, it has been a trend for football fans to enjoy football matches and playing fantasy football games at the same time throughout the season. It has been so addictive that these football managers spent hours each week analyzing the players’ statistics and preparing their best line-ups before the matches start.

Based on a recent survey report, “Comparison of fantasy sport sites with top sites” (http://tinyurl.com/6sjz84f), fantasy sports websites like FanDuel.com, Fantrax.com and Ftbl.com are more engaging than news websites such as CNN, Yahoo! and Wikipedia. In fact, the page views per user and the time users spent on these websites are 3 TIMES greater than these news sites. This holds true for football manager games too.

There are a few reasons behind this. Fantasy sport fans need to take time to analyze sports players that they want to draft into their fantasy teams. They need to take time to digest the comprehensive player statistics provided on fantasy football sites. Furthermore, on each game day or game weekend, these fanatic sports fan will return to the fantasy sports sites to further indulge themselves on the managing their precious fantasy team. With many more gaming experience on these fantasy sport websites, fans are getting more engaged to the sports world.
