MTN Flashback Fantasy League

Fantasy Football is one of MTN Play’s most popular services, but the cancellation of most sporting events has forced fantasy addicts into other forms of entertainment.

Participants select players from squads based on random selections of matches played in past seasons. When selections are closed, the actual matches are revealed, and participants score points and win prizes as they would if the games were being played live. Customers can subscribe at or dial *464*973# at R3.50 per day.

The launch of these services is just another way we’re working on our promise of keeping our customers connected everywhere they stay,” says Jacqui ‘O Sullivan, Executive for Corporate Affairs: MTN SA.
