BALTIMORE, Md., May 26, 2020 — Pro Lacrosse Talk announces that they have partnered with the fantasy sports platform Flow Fantasy Inc. to provide lacrosse fans with a fully automated fantasy lacrosse challenge during the PLL Championship Series.
Flow Fantasy Inc., a startup fantasy company founded by Grant Schwartz and Spencer Meyers, has launched the first online fantasy lacrosse platform that allows users to create their own leagues, hold their own drafts and compete against their friends.
“We are excited to partner with Flow Fantasy. We believe the platform that Grant and Spencer have developed is the next evolution of fantasy lacrosse and will provide users with a gameplay experience that they are accustomed to with other fantasy sports leagues,” Pro Lacrosse Talk Editor-in-chief and co-founder Hutton Jackson said. “We are looking forward to providing content and coverage for Flow Fantasy Lacrosse and believe fantasy sports is another significant way to attract new fans to the sport.”
Flow Fantasy Lacrosse users will be able to build their rosters by adding players via an online draft, free agency period and trades with other users. Users will go against other teams in their league and compete for the top spot in their league.
As for the season, the challenge will be broken down into two weeks with lineups being set on July 24 and July 29. Gameplay is fully automated using the league’s statistics, allowing users to see their team’s points and results within hours of the stats being posted to the league’s website.
As part of the partnership, Pro Lacrosse Talk will provide various fantasy lacrosse-specific content including a weekly fantasy lacrosse newsletter, in-depth draft previews and fantasy lacrosse advice on their various online, social media and podcast platforms.
“We are super excited to partner with Pro Lacrosse Talk. We think it will be the perfect marriage because people will be able to access content that can inform their decisions in fantasy. We both have the same mission of growing the game and furthering the sport, and we firmly believe fantasy and news are great first steps in sensationalizing lacrosse,” CEO and co-founder of Flow Fantasy Grant Schwartz said. “We’re super excited to innovate and accelerate the game with the help of Pro Lacrosse Talk. There’s a lot to come in the next few weeks that will make your experience on Flow Fantasy even better.”
Users can currently sign up, create a league and invite friends on flowfantasy.com.

About Flow Fantasy Inc.
Flow Fantasy (flowfantasy.com) is the world’s first fantasy lacrosse platform founded by Grant Schwartz and Spencer Meyers, two high school lacrosse players. The two sought out a fantasy lacrosse platform similar to those available for football and basketball, but could not find it. Thus, they set out to build the platform themselves. They’ve utilized cutting edge technologies to bring live fantasy to lacrosse and continue to innovate on fantasy sports as a concept (more to come in the coming weeks). The platform was built to continue to both grow the game and engage those already hooked on it.
