IF YOU'RE put off by the thought of waiting until April for the footy to start, you're not alone.

Thankfully the 2015 NAB AFL Fantasy season kicks off today and you can start picking your initial 30-man squad straight away.

CLICK HERE TO PLAY AFL FANTASY NOW

The official Fantasy football game of the AFL is back in full glory with a host of fabulous new prizes, quick and easy methods of team selection, and updated mobile apps so you can play on the go.

So don't be left behind - sign up now and starting trying to squeeze every last cent of value from your salary cap, with the best and easiest-to-play fantasy sports game.

10 GOOD REASONS TO PLAY AFL FANTASY

1. Great new prizes
There's $25,000 up for grabs for the overall winner of Fantasy Classic, along with a complete Toyota AFL Grand Final experience package. There's also $5000 on offer for second place and $1000 for third. 

2. One click to regenerate your leagues
It's easier than ever to take on your mates in Fantasy. League commissioners can quickly recreate their leagues from 2014 and invite the same friends along with new players. Those who create and fill their Fantasy Classic league by March 2 receive a free AFL Live subscription for 2015. 

3. $10 million to play with
Your salary cap remains at $10 million with 30 spots to be filled and the same mix as last year of defenders, midfielders, ruckmen and forwards. If you want Tom Rockliff, he's going to set you back a whopping $763,000. It's those quality players returning from injury (think Daniel Rich, Matthew Kreuzer, Nathan van Berlo) who look like the smart picks as you trial your team through the NAB Challenge.

4. The Traders are back
AFL Fantasy's leading experts return for 2015 with their unique take on the game. Join Warnie, Roy and Calvin each week for the inside word on trades, notable price rises (and falls) and choice captaincy picks. This Friday, the boys will reveal their first squad for 2015, but for now they've kicked things off with nearly an hour of Fantasy chat in their exclusive podcast (below).

5. Join unlimited leagues
Why limit yourself? Fantasy Classic allows you to play in as many leagues as you wish and to customise the size and structure of those leagues to your taste. Do you want to play finals, battle it out in a quick 10-week season or ditch the head-to-head games and hand over the trophy to the overall top scorer. The choice is yours.

6. Take on AFL players in Fantasy
Our AFL Fantasy ambassadors are already deep in pre-season training and you can join a host of them in special celebrity leagues using the entry codes below.

8. Updated mobile apps
Don't be tied to your desktop. The AFL Fantasy apps have been updated for iOS and Android devices so you can now register a team, pick your squad and trade all week from your phone or tablet. Facebook connect has again been enabled for AFL Fantasy so you can log in with your Facebook username/password.
 
9. Check the Pulse of AFL Fantasy
There's a host of hot topics already under discussion on the AFL Fantasy Pulse page, and coming soon will be the chance for coaches to create their own questions and put them out to the Fantasy community. When injuries strike and it's time to trade, you'll be able to ask fellow Fantasy fans what the best course of action is.
 
10. Play AFL Fantasy your way
All three Fantasy games are back for 2015 - there's Fantasy Classic where everyone can pick Gary Ablett, Fantasy Elite, the popular draft-based game for the hardcore players, and Fantasy Match Day where you can quickly pick the top seven players on the park for a specific game. One sign-up gets you access to all three games.
 
So start playing AFL Fantasy now!
