About the MotoGP Fan World Championship

Launched in March 2016 in conjunction with the release of MotoGP Championship Quest, the official MotoGP™ mobile racing game, the Fan World Championship connects the fans of MotoGP directly to their favorite rider. In the game, fans of the sport race to lift their favorite rider to the podium of the Fan World Championship™ during the year long series which aggregates the collective scores of the MotoGP™ riders’ fans and produces a result which is reflective of the fans’ efforts, not the popularity of the racer. “We didn’t want the Fan World Championship™ to be a popularity contest because if it were, the riders leading the live championship would win every week,” said Mark De Simone, CEO of WePlay Media, developer of the mobile game. “Instead we wanted to make it about the fan’s contribution to their rider, effectively democratizing the MotoGP™ field and focusing on fan engagement.”

Each week, a Fan World Championship™ podium will be decided and the MotoGP racer with the highest average fan score will win that round, while the fan who contributed the most points to that rider will win the round of the Fan World Championship™. A beautiful trophy will be promptly shipped to the first, second and third place getters along with t-shirts and other swag. A monthly winner who achieves the highest individual score regardless of whether their rider places in the Fan World Championship, will receive a magnificent Tissot watch.

Pau Serracanta, Managing Director at Dorna Sports S.L. said, “We are really excited to introduce this game to the fans of MotoGP™, we are very proud of the quality of the game and most importantly we are looking forward to seeing the fan engagement with the riders through the Fan World Championship™. The global appeal of MotoGP™ means that millions of fans around the world follow the championship and this game will give them the opportunity to really connect with the sport and their favorite rider.
