Fantasy Football Players at the Olympics

Fantasy Football Players at the Olympics


With the Olympics taking place this year, several players from different clubs are currently missing out on pre-season to represent their respective nations at London 2012. Although this will help their match fitness, some managers may choose to give those who performed well in pre-season more game time at the start of the fantasy football season, whilst giving a rest to the Olympic footballers. The group stages are now complete and some players will have returned; however, Great Britain are still in with a chance of winning a gold medal and many teams are affected by this.
