best gifts for sports fansThe growing interest in virtual teams based on real players and then judging the performance of those fantasy teams based on how the real athletes do on the field has created a multi-billion dollar business. As in real life, fans have their favorite players they want to draft to their fantasy team, which then compete with the teams of friends or on public sites with people they don’t know.  Here are some of the best gifts for these sports fans

Deposit for paid league games

Most people start off playing a particular fantasy sport, but there are now apps for a range of sports aside from football and baseball, to include basketball, hockey and golf.  The NFL Fantasy Football app is probably the most popular free app, which they are likely to already own, but gift them a deposit to play on DraftKings Fantasy Football. There are free games to play here, but also paid leagues, along with daily and weekly fantasy pools with real cash winnings.

Fantasy golf trophy

PGA TOUR Fantasy is a chance to show off knowledge of the sport by picking a team of six PGA TOUR Professionals (4 Starters, 2 Bench) in a private group or public groups. For the winner, a gold-dipped golf ball and tee that can be taken out on the green would make the best trophy for the fantasy league winner. If you are buying for the golfer who is a winner in your own life, this is a gift that shows your support for their sporting interest and once they retire from playing the game, makes a display piece that recognizes their skill in the game.

Meet their favorite player

Go from dealing with virtual players and arrange for them to meet their favorite player in real life. Get tickets to the next game for your sports fan to go with a plus one. Add in hotel accommodation if the distance is far from home. Contact their agent to arrange a meet-up to celebrate a particular occasion, giving reasons why your recipient deserves such a gift. If this meet-up is not possible, gift a piece of sporting memorabilia for this player from a reputable store who can guarantee the source. This could be a signed shirt, a signed photograph or other sporting paraphernalia. 

Stadium or links tour

Whatever the sport, fantasy sports fans have virtually seen the inside of the top rinks, arenas and stadiums and walked the courses of the best golf clubs in the world. Yet, there’s nothing like the real thing, so book tickets for a tour of their favorite team or players club or course.  Here, they will get to see behind the scenes and get to walk out onto the pitch, field or green just as the stars do. Tours often offer the chance to meet with big-name players who may take part in special question and answer sessions on the day. They may get inside information that will help them win their own fantasy league.
