IDLC has launched football team management game Kickstart Fantasy Football Challenge in the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The strategy game is available on Android devices and through the website

Players use a fixed budget to select players to form a team and receive points based on their chosen stars’ real-life performances in World Cup matches. Players who score the highest point will also receive prizes, such as smartwatches, DSLR cameras, Playstation 4s and Xboxs. The highest scorer of the tournament will win a trip to Bali for four people.

“We want to inspire the people of this country, especially the youth, about financial literacy and also want them to be more aware and cautious about personal financing,” said IDLC Finance Group Chief Marketing Officer Jane Alam Romel.

“In this case, I believe that this strategic game is an extremely simple and fun platform to achieve this goal.”
