People often ask ” What does YIRMA mean? “
Ridiculous ideas are often a result of consumption of large quantities of alcohol… FantasyYIRMA was no different.
“I need a name for the mini-league”
“the fantasy league, we have to give it a name”
“I haven’t got a ******* clue. Sure name it after Yir Ma!”
This statement was thus taken literally and FantasyYIRMA was born!!
Since 2008 more than 15,000 people have now entered a Fantasy YIRMA mini-league and 28,000+ have now joined us on Twitter.
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 3 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 2015/16 season from us at FY!
