FantasyYIRMA.com is a site focused on Fantasy Football news, views & gameweek previews for the English Premier League
People often ask ” What does YIRMA mean? “
Ridiculous ideas are often a result of consumption of large quantities of alcohol… FantasyYIRMA was no different. A conversation with my friend where I asked “What should we call the mini-league?” and his simple response was “I haven’t got a ******* clue – call it after yir Ma!”
Since 2012 more than 50,000 teams have now entered a FantasyYIRMA mini-league and 43,000 have now joined us on Twitter where we encourage our followers to get involved and interact. Now in our 7th season we have provided Fantasy Premier League coverage across more than 230 consecutive gameweeks – you can browse our back catalogue here – FY Archive
Our Fantasy 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 money off your mate in a bet is fun- to make him sponsor the league for an entire season …is funnier. Fantastic achievement that this mini-league has appeared in the Official Premier League Top Global Leagues on multiple occasions.
Over the years we’ve had the privilege of providing content for multiple sporting publications and websites globally and continue to provide weekly content for FourFourTwo one of the World’s most recognised football brands.
I think it’s fair to say, that if you had told me FantasyYIRMA.com would still be running 6 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 (ish) 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 2018/19 season from us at FY!
