Ocho To Appear on FX’s The League

Tomorrow Chad OchoCinco will make a special appearance in FX comedy series The League, set to the backdrop of fantasy football.  Ochocinco interacts with the ensemble cast to help them decide their picks for a fantasy football draft.

The hilarious, second season of The League delves into the trials and tribulations that come with playing fantasy sports, the affects it has on your love life, friendships and daily interaction. .  THE LEAGUE’s season premiere will air 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on Thursday, Sept. 16.   The cast of THE LEAGUE is made up of Mark Duplass (The Puffy Chair), Stephen Rannazzisi (Samantha Who?), Nick Kroll (I Love You Man), Paul Scheer (30 Rock), Jon Lajoie (Everyday Normal Crew) and Katie Aselton (The Office) and Nadine Velazquez (Entourage, Prison Break).

Fantasy sports participation has ballooned over the last five years to epidemic numbers and is now played by 27,100,000 Americans (according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association 2009). The average participant is 37 years old and spends 3-4 per week online checking stats, making trades and committing himself to the world of sports.  Membership is dominated by pro football with 75% participation, followed by baseball with 40% participation (according to Ipsos Fantasy Sports Research 2009).  With the NFL season in full bore and MLB Playoffs on the horizon it’s a great opportunity to reach out to the casual sports fan.
