TrophyRoom secures another seed funding for its third round from its existing investors
TrophyRoom, Singaporean mobile football game, announces that it has received the third installment of its seed round from its existing investors. In its previous round, the company behind the game said that it focussed on building a minimum viable product, while this time they are eyeing global launch.
The company describes the TrophyRoom game as “taking the best parts of fantasy sports, shaving off some of the complexities, and adding a wonderfully stressful card game similar to Hearthstone on top.”
Co-Founder and CEO Zacharias Tegefeldt elaborates: “There’s a void in the market for a social entertainment product that brings fans closer to the sport, the action – and to each other. We aim to fill that void and be there in your pocket whenever there’s a game on.”
TrophyRoom game puts players in the role of a club manager, allowing them to name the team, select the jersey colors, and start playing. Players are free to choose any real-world football player, even put Ronaldo and Messi in the same team, without any transfer budget restrictions, as long as they play a real-world match the same day.
Once the ultimate squad is formed, the player can challenge friends. When the real world matches start, the real action begins.
Players then must issue orders to your players by playing Tactics Card – a TrophyRoom’s feature. Each card comes with a potential gain and a potential loss, so it’s important to play the right card at the right time.
TrophyRoom supports all the major international football leagues, such as Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and plan to launch even more global leagues as they enter new markets.
Some of the game’s backers include Nest Tech, a Southeast Asian venture capital fund, focussing on seed-stage tech startups, as well as and Maxify, a Swedish tech investor focussing on social and gamified experiences.
Soe Moe Oo, Founder of Nest Tech and one of the early investors in TrophyRoom, says: “TrophyRoom caught my eye early on. I saw the social viral component and an unsatisfied growing global market with huge potential. The game is contagious, very hard not to play, for hardcore fans and casual followers alike.”
The company behind the game said that the product is currently in a pre-launch stage and TrophyRoom is recruiting heavily to their offices in Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City at the moment.
