The official fantasy football game of the Serie A TIM League comes to life with ‘Fantacalcio Serie A TIM’, the first reality show dedicated to the fans’ favourite game. From today and every Friday on TimVision, eight exceptional fantasy football coaches will compete against one another for the entire duration of the current championship.
Football stars and Serie A Ambassadors Bernardo Corradi and Luigi Di Biagio, influencer Ludovica Pagani, journalist and producer Malcom Pagani, Editor at Corriere dello Sport Ivan Zazzaroni, the voice of Italian football Pierluigi Pardo, actor and comedian Riccardo Rossi and YouTuber Ludovico Rossini will face off in a studio kitted out like a ‘Las Vegas Sports Bar’ to discover the League results, draw up rankings and prepare teams to field, all while considering the physical condition of the players using data provided by the Fantacalcio Serie A TIM app. The weekly meetings in the studio will also be a chance to talk about how the real Championship is going.
On the programme the talented coaches will bring to life the first TimVision League, a combination of show, game and reality. There will also be time for advice from Oronzo Canà and for ‘confessionals’, where the eight coaches will share with the public the secrets behind their tactics and speak openly about competitors and leading names of football. It all kicks off with a special episode dedicated to the auction, the moment when the shortlists are formed and the teams competing in the weekly episodes throughout the 2021/22 Serie A TIM season take shape.
The launch of the first talk show for Fantacalcio®, the fans' favourite game that has excited Italians for over 30 years, once again confirms the close collaboration between TIM, Title Sponsor of the top football championship for over twenty years, and the Serie A League.
