Now that Germany’s triumphant victory is in the books, it’s time to to announce the opening of the 2014-15 season of Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football and sign-up. This year, we’ve refreshed our desktop experience — and added a brand-new mobile app for iOS and Android users around the world.
We also heard you loud and clear last season: you want more leagues! So we’ve added two more leagues for 2014-2015: the Bundesliga and Campionato Italiano. We now offer Fantasy Football for English Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1 (presented by the French Professional Football League), Bundesliga and Campionato Italiano.
With the world’s favorite players on the big stage, now’s the time to sign-up.
And stay tuned: we’ll have a bunch more to announce as we get closer to the start of the season.
All the saves!
We’ve shown you it once, but we wanted to resurface our favorite 2014 World Cup GIF: Tim Howard saving everything.
That’s a wrap, folks.
Thanks to a brilliant goal from Mario Goetze, Germany are the 2014 #WorldCup champions.
