Arena Football League rolls out predictions game

26 April 2019

North America’s Arena Football League (AFL) has partnered with Chalkline Sports to develop and launch a new free-to-play predictions game.

AFL Fan Games is based around the AFL indoor American football league, with fans able to make weekly, daily and in-play predictions for the chance to win a range of prizes.

Weekly contests challenge fans to pick the winners, points totals and highest scoring quarter for all games played each weekend of the AFL season. Fans can also take part in game day contests by predicting key statistics such as the top performers and point totals

Live in-play contests will see supporters make in-game picks on each quarter during live AFL games. Fans can accumulate points throughout the game, with the winner announced at the final whistle.

Prizes on offer include VIP game tickets, official game footballs and official team helmets.

Chalkline will power the new platform, while the odds and lines for the Fan Games will be set by a third party.

“AFL Fan Games will give our audience the opportunity to make predictions and compete in contests to win great prizes,” AFL commissioner Randall Boe said. “AFL Fan Games will be fun and engaging for fans.”

Daniel Kustelski, CEO and co-founder of Chalkline Sports, added: “The AFL has exciting, action-packed, high-scoring games and we think that fans are going to love playing AFL Fan Games powered by Chalkline’s Free-to-Play platform.

“Chalkline games deliver a fun, real-time experience and reward fans who play to win.”

Last April, the AFL entered into a similar partnership with DraftKings, whereby the daily fantasy sports operator serves as the exclusive daily fantasy partner for the league and runs a dedicated AFL fantasy game.
