ESPN’s Fantasy Sports app crashed during one of the biggest days of the year, the premier of the new NFL season.

Even a Senator got into the act.  Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill tweeted:

“Seriously @ESPNFantasy this is not good. Opening day? Really? #fail”

The new ESPN Fantasy app updates the No. 1 ESPN Fantasy Football app on iPhone, iPad, Android phone, and Android 7-inch tablets and allows users to play Fantasy Football, Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey in the same application for the first time ever.

The outage began around 1 p.m. ET on Sunday -- just as nine NFL games kicked off around the country.

ESPN Fantasy Sports said in a tweet that it is "aware of the current technical difficulties" and is "working to resolve the issue ASAP." The company did not respond to CNNMoney's request for additional information.

ESPN does not offer Daily Fantasy Sports.
