Interview with MondoGoal CEO Shergul Arshad
MondoGoal CEO Shergul Arshad is one of the most well-connected, well-respected professionals in the daily fantasy sports space.
His company, MondoGoal, continues to grow at an astonishing rate. This one excerpt from the Mondogoal website says it all:
“Over £1,000,000 have already been won by fantasy managers like you playing Daily Fantasy Football on MondoGoal.”
Arshad recently took the time to answer a variety of questions pertaining to his company, the industry in general, and the future of daily fantasy sports.
Can you explain why Mondogoal stands out in such a crowded industry?
- Largest DFS site in Europe.
- Licensed and legal in the UK, Ireland and Isle of Man.
- Multi currency, multi language, and multi territory.
- Extreme focus on the world's largest sport.
What features make Mondogoal unique?
- Multi language and multi currency.
- Field view for formations.
- Color and UI.
- Team partnerships with biggest soccer clubs in the world.
Does Mondogoal have any expansion plans for the near future?
Italy in a few weeks. Then more markets and more sports eventually.
What are your thoughts on the developments regarding daily fantasy sports in the United States?
It's gambling in 7 states now and in the rest of the world. It is a skill game like online poker but needs licenses everywhere. I think a sole US focus was a risky idea all along.
Many players say the Mondogoal “system” is one of the easiest they have come across? Why is this the case? How do you keep things simple?
Great to hear! Intuitive user interface. Lots of “how to” guides and videos. The field view and soccer friendly graphics.
Because one of my co-founders and CTO Eric Savage, plus Head of Engineering Ryan Jones and our tech staff, makeup the hardest working and best engineering team in the industry. They also love sports so they designed it like it was for themselves. It was a labor of love!
So, there you have it. Shergul Arshad knows his stuff, and this information is sure to give you a better idea of what to expect from Mondogoal and the daily fantasy sports industry in the future.
