Cascais, Portugal – May 18, 2012: Kite Surf Pro (KSP) announces the launch of Season Two of the Fantasy KSP by Fantastar.com, kiteboarding’s first-ever fantasy league game. KSP continues its partnership with Fantastar.com to give fans a fun and exciting way to follow their favorite KSP riders and a chance to win some great prizes. With the highly anticipated 2012 Kite Surf Pro World Tour kicking off on June 1 in Cascais, Portugal, Fantasy KSP league players can now register and select their fantasy dream team.
The Fantasy KSP enables fans to become virtual team managers. Players create and manage their own fantasy kite surf dream-teams by buying, selling or trading KSP World Tour riders throughout the season for the chance to win a share of the “payout” when their team performs.
The first 2012 Fantasy KSP round will be the "EDP Kite Surf Pro Cascais," which is open for registration from today until midnight on May 31, 2012 (GMT), just hours before the start of this first event of the season.
Fantastar.com’s co-founder, Rob Tong, is an amateur kiteboarder who worked closely with KSP to develop the concept. “Fantasy games are traditionally associated with mainstream sports such as soccer”, Rob says, “but Fantastar opens it up to any sport and we’re really pleased with the fan engagement it has brought to the KSP Tour.”
