SAN FRANCISCO - September 12, 2013 - DeNA, the National Football League (NFL) and NFL Players, Inc. (NFL PLAYERS) have announced that NFL Matchups LIVE, a mobile game that challenges players to assemble championship-bound teams with the ultimate NFL card collection, is now available for the 2013 football season. NFL Matchups LIVE is updated with many new features, including Fantasy Football stats integration.
Available now for free download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, NFL Matchups LIVE features all 32 NFL teams and more than 1,000 NFL players to draft. Players can compete against each other in weekly special in-game events to win the best offensive and defensive players in the league. The game provides realistic game modes where the players select their favorite athletes, pick their formation, and adjust at halftime if needed. There is also an opportunity to collect legendary retired NFL players, including LaDainian Tomlinson and many more players.
For the first time ever in a mobile game, NFL Matchups LIVE incorporates NFL Fantasy Football data to give high performing players increased stats based on their real NFL performance from the previous week. Fantasy player rankings will be updated each Tuesday in the game, adding further depth to deck management, player drafting and in-game trading.
"With realistic game modes that allow competitors to play against all existing NFL teams, NFL Matchups LIVE is the ultimate football management challenge," said Nathan Camarillo, senior director of product design at DeNA. "NFL fans can put their player knowledge to even better use by making trades for the best fantasy performers."

"Adding a fantasy football element to NFL Matchups LIVE deepens the user experience while increasing engagement."
