EPL: Kiwi Adam Levy wins Fantasy Premier League title

New Zealander Adam Levy has beaten out more than six million competitors around the world to win the Fantasy Premier League.

Wellington-based Ley finished the tournament with 2659 points, which is understood to be 10 points short of the record for most in a season, set by former winner Jon Reeson in 2009/10.

The runner-up had 2602 points.

The win was special for the fact Levy changed his username to #TheyAreUs after the Christchurch terror attacks.

Levy led the competition for the past two months of the English football competition.

The competition sees football fans pick 15 real-life players at the start of the season with a £100 million budget.

Fantasy owners then select a starting XI each week, with the players earning points based on how well they perform on the field.

For finishing on top of the world, Levy wins a seven-night trip to the UK, including travel and accommodation, as well as VIP hospitality at two 2019/20 Premier League matches.

Other prizes include a copy of FIFA19, a fantasy Premier League goody bag and a TAG Heuer smartwatch.
