The Simulation Football League (SFL) is excited to announce yet another paradigm shifting moment in the world of esports. This Friday will be the debut of the SFL’s partnership with Crowdplay, the best fan engagement platform in the world for live sporting events. Crowdplay is revolutionizing the way fans enjoy and interact with games they are attending or viewing. Fans answer live questions about the game and compete against other fans for cash prizes. There will be a $1,250 prize pool during the SFLm Championship game between the No. 2 Ottawa Cavalry and the No. 1 Madison Lynx, on Eleven Sports and For the Fans at 7 pm ET, 6 pm CT.
“The SFL is always interested and enthusiastic to partner with innovative technology that further immerses our fans, players, and teams into the game, which we all love,” said SFL Commissioner Cameron Irvine. :This is the first step into creating an interactive platform that we all desire.”
To play in tonight’s live trivia game, all fans, players, team staff, and owners can download the Crowdplay on their respective app stores.
“CrowdPlay is excited to offer our fan engagement platform to the SFL’s fans,” said Harold Topper, Executive Vice President of Partnerships at CrowdPlay. “Like the SFL, CrowdPlay is dedicated to involving and rewarding fans in the action happening over broadcasts and in venue, all for free!”

CrowdPlay is the #1 fan engagement platform for live sporting events-revolutionizing the way fans enjoy and interact with games they’re attending or viewing while providing a unique and exclusive forum for sponsors, teams and sports venues. The CrowdPlay app engages fans with event specific questions and trivia throughout a live game’s lifecycle-pre-game (before the game begins) and in-game (during breaks in play). Throughout each phase, every question is contextual and relevant to the action in the game as fans compete against each other in that venue. Meanwhile, as users accrue points, they climb the leaderboard. Those who finish inside the prize pool rankings are rewarded a cash prize, but regardless, all players can use their accumulated points for redemption of exclusive sponsor rewards.
