19. And Of Course, No Fantasy Football!

















FantasyYIRMA.com started out as most random fantasy football leagues do…

over alcohol.


People often ask ” What does the name mean? “

Long story short – One bloke says to the other “I need a name for the mini-league”

“the what??” came the reply.

“the fantasy league, we have to give it a name”

“I haven’t got a (Insert word of your own choosing ) clue. Sure name it after Yir Ma!”


This statement was thus taken literally and FantasyYIRMA was born!!

Since 2008 more than 10,000 people have now entered a Fantasy YIRMA mini-league.

The main league is free to play and the £100 prize fund is typically paid by the loser in the bet between the FantasyYIRMA admin team.

To take £100 off your mate in a bet is fun- to make him sponsor the league for an entire season …is funnier.

I think it’s fair to say, that if you had told me FantasyYIRMA.com would still be running almost two years after it started I would have chuckled immensely… but it has… we have… and as both the twitter (@FantasyYIRMA ) account and website have continued to grow, it genuinely is a pleasure to be involved in the ridiculously brilliant world of Fantasy Football.

The interaction online from #FPL fans across the world has been fantastic! Our goal now is the same as it was from day one – to try and provide interesting and quality insight and to help create as much interaction around the game as possible. Simply watching the evolution of the game over the past few years as the level of interest continues to grow has been fascinating. 

Best of Luck to everyone for the 2014/15 season from us at FY!

  1. I can relate to number 1. I can’t tell you the amount of times I came across a Tweet over the international break, saying Aguero had hurt his back, only to discover they were only joking about him carrying the rest of the Man City.
