I know we talk basketball here, but fantasy football season is quickly approaching and what better way to kick off the season than by taking a look at the largest daily fantasy football contest on the ‘net: The $500,000 Fanduel Fantasy Football Championship!
The $500,000 FFFC is the biggest fantasy football tournament in the world - and you can be part of it! Here’s how it works:
- During each of the first 12 Sundays of the NFL season FanDuel is running two FFFC qualifying tournaments.
- Qualifying tournaments run at $10 and $270. All players can enter an unlimited amount of teams in both tournaments.
- The player who scores the most points in each qualifying tournament will win an all expenses paid trip to Las Vegas and a seat in the FFFC finals. We’ll also be awarding $6,250 in runner up prizes in every qualifier.
The 24 finalists will be on their way to Vegas for the fantasy football event of a lifetime. Here’s what each of them will receive:
- One round-trip ticket to Las Vegas.
- One chauffeur ride from the airport to the luxurious Palazzo Hotel and Casino.
- Two nights in a suite at the Palazzo.
- A night of dinner and partying with all the other winners on Saturday, December 8th
- An amazing day of drinking, eating, and watching football on December 9th in private boxes at Lagasse’s Stadium in Las Vegas, the premier sports bar and casino in the world. FanDuel will pick up the tab for every finalist for celebrations on Saturday and Sunday.
- A share of the $350,000 we will award in the final – including $150,000 to the winner.
