Fantasy sports historically demand lengthy commitments, seldom reward their players, and can be very tricky and cumbersome to play.” Co-Founder and CEO of Champions Round Carter Russ said in a statement.

Focusing on Gen Z sports fans, Champions Round’s fantasy leagues aren’t tied to entire seasons. Instead, they last up to three or four weeks, sometimes around a single multi-day event.

Champion Round app can be downloaded on both Google Play and App Store.
