betMooch Euro 2008 fantasy footy

@ 9:59 PM

Even though none of the home countries feature in the european championships the anticipation is growing around these parts for what should be a cracking tournament. With so many top europeans playing in the english premiership there will still be plenty of home interest, and the inevitable Spanish under-achievement will remind us why it's maybe just as well England aren't there.

It's also going to be fun because we've just launched betMooch Euro 2008 Fantasy Footy. Sadly I can't actually claim any of the credit - it's almost all Cole's work and he's done a great job.

If you fancy putting together the ultimate team for the tournament head over to the website at http://euro2008.betmooch.co.uk/

Entry to the game is free and once registered you can set up your own custom leagues to pit your wits against friends, family, colleagues and arch-nemesi (sp?). There is even Steve McClaren's® Lucky Dip, so if you think Arshavin is something that should be done behind closed bathroom doors then get England's ex-manager to pick eleven random players for you.

If you do enjoy the site and think it is something others might be interested in then please do pass it on. The more the merrier and if interest is good then will see if we can sort some prizes out...

Although I've been busy doing work for a lot of companies and organisations, I'm trying to make time for some projects of my own. One such is betMooch, the idea for which was hatched late last year, and is now being produced by Cole, my brother Mark and myself.

Planning started in earnest a few weeks ago, and we're having a lot of fun with it. Development is now underway, and we hope to have a launch in the early summer. Before then there will be a lot of internal testing to be done - we'll be looking for testers in a month or two.

I'm not going to go into too much detail about what the site will offer. Let's just say we're trying to create an environment where betting can be a fun, safe and free activity for anyone.

If this has piqued your interest you can register over at the betMooch site, have a read of the blog, or track our activity on Twitter.
