The WFFC Terms
& Conditions
Contest Structure

Welcome to the 2015 World Fantasy Football Championship (WFFC). Here are the detailed rules for the contest.

Players qualify for the WFFC Final by winning at least one of 120 entries FanDuel will award via WFFC Qualifier contests. Multiple Qualifier contests will run every NFL week starting Sept. 13th. Qualifier contests will award at least one entry into the WFFC Final, though FanDuel reserves the right to host Qualifiers awarding more than one entry as well as “Super” Qualifiers. Exactly 120 entries into the WFFC Final will be awarded via WFFC Qualifier contests.

In each Qualifier, the entrant whose team scores the most fantasy points in each will secure one entry to the WFFC Final. Some qualifiers may award multiple seats to top finishers.

The prize for each Qualifier Winner includes 1 seat in the WFFC live final on Sunday, Dec. 13th, and a trip package consisting of $1,000 airfare credit, one way transfer from airport to the event hotel, three nights’ accommodations at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, and entry for 2 to the Friday welcome reception on Dec. 11th, the Saturday special event on Dec. 12th, and the Sunday Championship viewing party on Dec 13th. 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.

The WFFC allows each contestant a maximum of 5 entries. Should a player win a second entry, they may choose between receiving an additional transferable prize package (plane ticket, hotel accommodations, and a pair of tickets to the viewing parties per entry) OR the value of the trip package ($3,000). This choice shall also be offered upon the same player winning a third, fourth, and fifth entry. Once a player wins five entries to the WFFC Final, he is ineligible to enter into any future Qualifiers.

Super Qualifiers may be held, in which multiple entries to the WFFC Live Final are awarded. The number of high scorers in each Super Qualifier who win an entry to the WFFC Final corresponds to the amount of entries to be awarded. For instance, if FanDuel announces that three entries to the WFFC Final will be awarded in a specific Super Qualifier, then the top three highest scoring entries in that Super Qualifier will each win one entry to the WFFC Final. Once a player wins five entries to the WFFC Final, he is ineligible to enter into and win any future qualifiers.

The WFFC live final will take place in at the Manchester Grand Hyatt on Sunday, December 13th.

WFFC Teams and scoring

Players qualify for the WFFC Final by winning a qualifier contest ("Qualifier"). The first place prize for each Qualifier includes a seat into the WFFC. However, FanDuel reserves the right to host "Super" Qualifiers where the prize may be awarded to multiple players. Exactly 120 entries into the WFFC Final will be awarded via WFFC Qualifier contests. Multiple Qualifier contests will run every week starting Sept. 13th.

Fantasy points and rosters for all contests will use standard FanDuel rules, as explained here: https://www.fanduel.com/rules; scoring can vary depending on the sport.

In the event of a tie for first place in a Qualifier, the tied players will play a one-day 'playoff' contest determine finishing position. 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.

Eligibility for WFFC

The final of the WFFC is only open to players aged 18 or over by the date of the won qualifier as per FanDuel's Terms of Use (https://www.fanduel.com/terms) and who complete and return to FanDuel a signed copy of the WFFC Final Affidavit of Eligibility by the deadline specified by FanDuel. Any otherwise eligible player who wins first place in a Qualifier but who does not return a completed and signed Affidavit of Eligibility by the deadline will have their finishing position swapped with the first eligible runner up. In other words, they will receive a cash prize and the runner up will receive the exclusive trip package and seat in the final, provided that the runner-up completes and return to FanDuel a signed copy of the WFFC Final Affidavit of Eligibility. A copy of the Affidavit of Eligibility can be viewed below.

All other US and Canadian residents who comply with our eligibility rules for paid entry games in our terms of service are eligible to play. Residents of Arizona, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada and Washington are not eligible to enter this competition. FanDuel employees may enter the competition for testing purposes but are not eligible to win any prizes. All other US and Canadian residents who comply with our Terms of Use and our other rules (including rules for paid entry games) are eligible to play in the WFFC.

Participation in the WFFC live final, and the payment of any prize won at the final, are contingent on strict compliance with the 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 at the WFFC (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 unauthorized promotion of a website or business take place.

Contestants will only be allowed to qualify for five seats in the WFFC live final.

Tax

All US resident WFFC finalists will be required to provide address and social security details prior to the finals event. These details will be used to file a 1099-MISC with the Internal Revenue Service for any players whose net profit on Fanduel during 2014 exceeds $600.

Publicity for WFFC Finalists

As described in further detail in the 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 have their finishing position swapped with the first runner up that week. In other words, they'll receive a cash prize and the runner up will receive the trip package and seat in the final.

The WFFC Final

The WFFC finalists will be given free accommodations for the nights of the 11th, 12th, and 13th at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. If the finalist cannot make the trip due to circumstances that FanDuel in its sole discretion deems extreme and outside the finalist’s control (which may include severe illness, potential loss of job, death in the family, etc.), FanDuel may authorize the finalist to nominate one other person to go in his or her place. However, the finalist will still be expected to fulfill their publicity obligations.

One ticket for guests to the Saturday and Sunday parties is free; there will be a fee for additional guests, and space for additional guests at either event is not guaranteed.

Additional WFFC terms and conditions

The decisions made by FanDuel management regarding, but not limited to, eligibility, winners, scoring, travel arrangement, rules, prizes and compliance with the Affidavit of Eligibility are considered final. No correspondence will be entered into. FanDuel reserves the right to make reasonable changes to these terms, (a) to ensure the fairness of competition, and (b) in response to unanticipated developments (such as technical failures, errors, acts of God, natural disasters, terrorism, changes in applicable law, interruption in the NFL season, failure of stats provider, failure of hotel provider, and failure to obtain a minimum number of entrants).

Affidavit of Eligibility

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:

  • I represent that the information provided above is accurate and complete. I represent that I am not a resident of Arizona, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana or Montana, Nevada or Washington. I agree to bring government-issued photo identification to the WFFC Final Event (defined below) for FanDuel to verify my identity and date of birth.
  • I reaffirm my agreement to: The FanDuel Terms of Use, provided at (https://www.fanduel.com/terms); and The FanDuel WFFC Rules, provided at Fanduel.com/WFFC
  • I agree to attend the WFFC Final on Sunday, December 13th at the Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel in San Diego. Should I finish in the top three spots in the WFFC final and not attend the awards ceremony, I will be eligible to receive only 50% of any prize money I otherwise would win at the WFFC Final unless I obtain the FanDuel Chief Operating Officer’s written permission by 48 hours prior to the official start time of the Sunday event. Because of anticipated media presence and the significant marketing value the Sunday event has for FanDuel, and because the value of my participation in the Sunday event cannot be calculated with precision but likely is proportional to my ranking in the results of the WFFC Final, I agree that this prize reduction is a reasonable method for compensating the company for the losses it will sustain by reason of my failure to fully participate in the Sunday event.
  • I agree to refrain from any behavior or communication during the WFFC Final Event weekend that would harm the image or reputation of FanDuel, the WFFC Final Events or the FanDuel user community.
  • I will participate in the following, without requesting additional compensation from FanDuel or any third party: I will speak with any interested bloggers and other journalists and media personnel throughout the WFFC Final Event, including when such personnel are recording the conversation for publication. At FanDuel’s request, I will participate in a specified number of other hours of any FanDuel marketing-related activities that FanDuel organizes (whether during the WFFC Final Events weekend or otherwise, at FanDuel’s discretion), such as participating in FanDuel marketing photo shoots or interviews with the media, and I agree that my local travel to and from such activities will take place at my own expense and will not count toward the hour total. I agree to be available for these marketing-related activities from 30 days before the WFFC Final until 90 days after it. If I win first, second or third place in the WFFC Final, the total hours for these activities will be 30. Otherwise, the total hours will be 5.
  • During the night of the WFFC Final and at the party the night before the WFFC Final, I will not participate in any promotional or marketing-related activities for other daily fantasy websites.
  • FanDuel and its service providers may take photos or videos of me or in which I appear (“Images”) during the events and activities described in this Affidavit of Eligibility. I grant FanDuel ownership of any copyright or other rights I may have in the Images. I grant FanDuel an irrevocable, perpetual and unrestricted right to publish, distribute, copy, perform and otherwise use in any manner the Images and derivative works thereof, in conjunction with my own or a fictitious name, or without any name, in any medium, and in all media now or hereafter known, including over the Internet, for promotion, advertising, trade or commerce, or for any other purpose whatsoever. I also grant FanDuel an irrevocable, perpetual and unrestricted right to publish and otherwise use my name for such purposes, whether or not in connection with the Images. I consent to the digital compositing or distortion of the Images, including any changes or alterations as to color, size, shape, perspective, context, foreground or background or associated audio. I also consent to the use of any published matter in conjunction with such Images. I waive any right that I may have to inspect or approve the finished product or products and the advertising copy or other matter that may be used in connection with the Images or my name or the use to which they may be applied. I release and discharge FanDuel and its service providers and assigns from any liability in connection with their use of the Images or my name, including without limitation any claims for libel or violation of any right of publicity or privacy. This grant of rights is binding upon me and my heirs, estate, legal representatives, and assigns.
