FanDuel introduces a new late swap feature

Following its UK launch this season fantasy sports operator FanDuel has introduced a late swap feature to its one-day fantasy football contests.

The feature ensures players can make changes to their lineup even after the first matches have kicked off, provided any edits related to fantasy players whose real time matches have not yet begun.

This is one of many upcoming new features that the operator has promised as FanDuel looks to entice the European market with DFS.

Speaking to Totally Gaming, FanDuel International Marketing Director Karol Corcoran said: "Late Swap is a valuable addition to our product, giving users an opportunity to react to late team news, make changes and pick a strong fantasy team. The excitement that users get from playing in contests lasts for the whole weekend of football games, not just for the first few matches.

“Every fantasy player in your team contributes towards the final score, it really is a case of it not being over until the final whistle blows."

FanDuel’s late swap feature was introduced for last weekend’s Premier League matches and will apply to all of its one-day and weekend contests that cover matches with varying kick-off times.

Totally Gaming says: In an increasingly crowded real money fantasy sports market in the UK and Europe, it's creative and sensible features such as this which will keep customers returning week after week. Fair play to FanDuel, this is a strong move.
