Fantasy sports can be fun, but usually you’re locked into your team for the duration of the season. If you’ve ever found yourself bored of managing the same players day after day, SideLeague is exactly what you’re looking for. Created by SideLeague LLC, this unique fantasy sports app for iPhone is perfect for sports fans who like to keep things fresh.
At its core, SideLeague is a competitive daily social fantasy sports app that allows you to create and manage teams without committing to a team for an extended period of time. There are tons of contents to enter, and all of them offer actual money for top scorers.
Unlike many other fantasy sports apps, I found SideLeague to be incredibly intuitive and easy to navigate. The app walks new players through the process of creating teams and joining leagues, and you’ll be entering contests in no time flat. I did notice that it takes about 10 minutes to receive your confirmation email, so be patient if it doesn’t arrive immediately after you create your account.
If you’re a stats junkie and you need to know everything about a player before you put him on your roster, SideLeague has your fix. I was highly impressed with the amount of player info available right in the app. This means you won’t have to scour sources for data and injury announcements; everything is included in SideLeague.
There are a few unique points about SideLeague that are worth mentioning. Each contest is limited to 25 people, and winners receive prizes even if the contest doesn’t fill completely. Also, you get to choose which game your fantasy player earns points from, which adds a whole new element of strategy.
One important thing I want to mention is that because SideLeague operates with real money, you must be located in a state (both US and Canada) that allows the app to run. States that don’t support SideLeague include: Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, South Carolina or the province of Quebec, Canada.
As far as supported sports, SideLeague allows you to create and participate in contests for fantasy baseball, fantasy hockey, fantasy football, and fantasy basketball.
When it comes down to it, SideLeague is an awesome fantasy sports app for iPhone that allows players to test their team building skills by throwing in a few curveballs and allowing for more control over their team and players.
The best part is that you don’t have to pay to play if you don’t want to. I definitely recommend checking out SideLeague if you’re looking to participate in fantasy sports without long term team commitments.
