How it started

It all started with a love for football combined with a passion for fantasy sports and stock trading.

When Victor Swaab and Juan Lacroix met during their time at the Nyenrode Business University they knew that the opportunity of creating a game that brings the sports that they, and so many others, love closer to the fans was on that had to be taken.Adding a whole new dimension to traditional fantasy sports in the form of trading players, the idea of Kickstox was born.

Now, with a great international team, Victor and Juan will work to continuously develop and provide a platform that they think football fans have gone too long without.
