Welcome to the 2016 World Fantasy Football Championship (WFFC). The WFFC consists of a series of qualifier contests (“WFFC Qualifiers”) and culminates in a live final in Rancho Palos Verdes, California (“WFFC Final”). Here are the detailed rules for the contest.
Players qualify for the WFFC Final by winning at least one of 100 entries FanDuel will award via WFFC Qualifiers. Multiple WFFC Qualifiers will run every NFL week starting September 8, 2016. Each WFFC Qualifier will award at least one entry into the WFFC Final, though FanDuel reserves the right to run WFFC Qualifiers that award more than one entry (“Super Qualifiers”). FanDuel also reserves the right to run other promotions that award entries into the WFFC Final.
In each WFFC Qualifier, the entrant whose team scores the most fantasy points will secure one entry into the WFFC Final (“Qualifier Winner”). Super Qualifiers may award multiple entries into the WFFC to top finishers (“Super Qualifier Winner” and, collectively with Qualifier Winners, “Finalists”).
The prize for each Qualifier Winner includes ONE (1) entry into the WFFC Final on Sunday, December 18, 2016, and a trip package valued at $3,000. The trip package consists of (1) $1,000 airfare credit, (1) one-way transfer from airport to the event hotel, three nights’ accommodations at Terranea Resort, and entry for 2 to the following events: the Friday welcome reception on December 16, 2016, the Saturday special event on December 17, 2016, and the WFFC Final Sunday Championship viewing party on December 18, 2016 (collectively, the “Trip Package”). The entry into the WFFC Final and Trip Package are non-transferable, except where noted otherwise in these terms and conditions. Additional guests may be able to attend the Saturday and Sunday parties, but will be subject to additional charges. Entry for additional guests are NOT guaranteed and will be evaluated on an ongoing basis, factoring in event capacity, overall group size, event space capacity, and catering & staffing resources.
Users are only eligible to win a maximum of THREE (3) entries into the WFFC Final. Should a user win a second entry into the WFFC through a Qualifier, they may choose between receiving an additional transferable Trip Package (plane ticket, hotel accommodations, and a pair of tickets to the viewing parties per entry) for an individual of his or her choosing OR a cash value option of 75% of the trip package ($2,250). This choice shall also be offered to a user winning a third entry. Once a user wins three entries into the WFFC Final, he is ineligible to win any additional entries into the WFFC Final. Any user who enters a lineup in a WFFC Qualifier or Super Qualifier that finishes in a position to win an entry into the WFFC Final but would result in the user having an excess of THREE (3) entries into the WFFC Final will be awarded the cash value of the entry into the WFFC in lieu of winning another seat in the WFFC Final.
Super Qualifiers may be held, in which multiple entries into the WFFC Final are awarded. In a Super Qualifier the users with the highest scoring unique entries will win an entry into the WFFC Final in accordance with the number of entries into the WFFC Final being offered in that particular Super Qualifier. For example, if FanDuel announces that three entries into the WFFC Final will be awarded in a specific Super Qualifier, then the users with the three highest scoring unique entries in that Super Qualifier will win one entry into the WFFC Final.
The WFFC Live Final will take place in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA on Sunday, December 18, 2016.
Each WFFC Qualifier and Super Qualifier and the WFFC Final will use standard FanDuel NFL rosters and scoring rules, as explained here: www.fanduel.com/rules
In the event of a tie for first place in a WFFC Qualifier, the tied players will play a one-day 'playoff' contest to determine finishing position. The playoff will be a Head-to-Head contest using standard FanDuel NFL rosters and scoring rules. All other ties (whether in the WFFC Final or in a Qualifier) will result in the tied players splitting the prizes for the tied finishing positions.
Each Qualifier will award an entry into the WFFC Final (cash value of $50,000) and Trip Package to the first place finisher (or top eligible finishers for Super Qualifiers). Any other prizes for Qualifiers and Super Qualifiers will be published in advance of users being able to enter such contests.
The first place finisher in the WFFC Final will receive a cash prize of $1,000,000. All other prizes for the WFFC Final will be published when the first WFFC Qualifiers are created.
Upon completion of the Affidavit of Eligibility, FanDuel may, at its sole discretion, award the minimum prize to Winners in advance of the Live Final. Any amounts awarded in advance of the Live Finals will be deducted from the amount to be paid out once the Live Finals are complete or if the user is subsequently given the cash value of his seat instead of an actual entry into the Live Final.
Participation in the WFFC Final, and the payment of any prize won at the WFFC Final, are contingent on strict compliance with the WFFC Final Affidavit of Eligibility. For example, no promotion of other websites or business - of any kind - is allowed by Finalists at any events hosted by FanDuel in Rancho Palos Verdes (these include the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday parties), unless explicit written permission has been granted by FanDuel in advance. FanDuel reserves the right to revoke attendance privileges at any event hosted by FanDuel should a Finalist violate the terms of the WFFC Final Affidavit of Eligibility.
Contestants are only eligible to qualify for a maximum of three seats in the WFFC Final.
All US residents who win an entry into the WFFC Finals will be required to provide address and social security details to be eligible for WFFC Finals. These details will be used to file a 1099-MISC with the Internal Revenue Service for any players whose net profit on FanDuel during 2016 exceeds $600. Failure to provide these details will result in the user being disqualified and having his or her finishing position swapped with the first eligible runner-up.
As described in further detail in the WFFC Final Affidavit of Eligibility, Finalists agree that their full names, location and/or photos and videos will be used for marketing purposes. They also agree to speak to bloggers and other journalists and media personnel where applicable prior to, during and after the event, and they agree to participate in additional FanDuel marketing activities, all without additional compensation. Any Finalist unprepared to adhere to this requirement will be disqualified have his or her finishing position swapped with the first eligible runner-up that week.
The WFFC Finalists will be given accommodations for the nights of December 16, 17, and 18 at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. If a Finalist cannot make the trip due to circumstances that FanDuel, in its sole discretion, deems extreme and outside the Finalists control, FanDuel may authorize the Finalist to nominate one other person to attend the WFFC Final in his or her place. However, the Finalist will still be expected to fulfill their publicity obligations.
One ticket for guests to the Friday, Saturday and Sunday events is included; there will be a fee for additional guests, and space for additional guests at either event is not guaranteed.
In consideration for the opportunity to participate in the World Fantasy Football Championship (“WFFC”), and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, I agree as follows:
