London-based Dream League is to launch the first fantasy sports games on the Internet this month. Already an officially licensed product of soccer's European Football Championship finals (Euro '96) to be staged in the U.K. this summer, Dream League will run its own competition on its Web site. Participants in the Euro '96 Dream League will select their Dream Teams from the 16 national squads competing in the championship.
Dream Team owners will be able to view their chosen players' performance, their position in a global league of tens of thousands of teams and their position in their own national league. "You might be top of the league in Italy but 200th globally," says a Dream League spokesman.
Dream League already operates fantasy football games in Europe, South America and the Far East.
