FIREKEEPERS CASINO HOTEL TO HOST FANTASY FOOTBALL EXPERT MATTHEW BERRY

(Battle Creek, MI.) July 22, 2015- Do not draft your fantasy football team before getting the inside information from one of the leaders in the business, as FireKeepers Casino Hotel will host a Fantasy Football Event featuring  Matthew Berry of ESPN, on Saturday, August 22.  Doors will open at 2 p.m. with the event beginning at 3 p.m.

Tickets for the Fantasy Football Event will be $10. Purchases can be made at FireKeepersCasino.com or Startickets.com. To avoid service charges, purchase your tickets at the Box Office, located inside FireKeepers Casino Hotel Lobby.

Matthew Berry is a Senior Fantasy Sports Analysts for ESPN and hosts a daily podcast called “Fantasy Focus”. Berry started his career with ESPN in 2007 when his website, TalentedMr.Roto.com, was purchased by ESPN. Since then he has gone on to co-host ESPN.com’s live Sunday morning Fantasy Football program, “Fantasy Football Now”, and appears regularly on ESPN and radio specials. During his career has earned 51 Fantasy Sports Writes Awards (FSWA) nominations, winning 12 of them. Berry has also been nominated for four Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) awards.

At this event, Matthew Berry will be presenting his recommendations for the 2015 Fantasy Football season. These will include his well-known players he loves and players he hates for 2015, plus rookies to watch and players ready for a breakout season.  There will also be a question and answer portion where you could get your most burning Fantasy Football questions answered by Matthew Berry. He will also be selling his book titled, “Fantasy Life: The Outrageous, Uplifting, and Heartbreaking World of Fantasy Sports from the Guy Who's Lived It”.

“All fantasy football players are looking for a competitive edge and listening to a Matthew Berry presentation could be the difference between being in the money or on the outside,” said Jim Wise, Vice President of Marketing at FireKeepers Casino Hotel.  “A $10 ticket for this in-person 90-minute presentation beats some outdated fantasy football magazine any day.”
