Welcome to the 2017 World Fantasy Football Championship Weekend ("WFFC"). The WFFC consists of two contests: the $2,500,000 World Fantasy Football Championship Live Final ("WFFC Final") and the $4,000,000 Fan Championship ("Fan Championship").
The WFFC Final consists of a series of qualifier contests ("WFFC Qualifiers") and culminates with the WFFC Final in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. Here are the detailed rules for the WFFC.
Players may qualify for the WFFC Final by winning an entry via WFFC Qualifiers. The WFFC Final will include a total of seventy-five (75) entries. Multiple WFFC Qualifiers will run every NFL week starting on September 17th. 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 award entries into the WFFC Final through other promotions in its own discretion.
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 entry into the WFFC to multiple finishers ("Super Qualifier Winners" and, collectively with Qualifier Winners, "Finalists").
The prize for each Qualifier Winner and Super Qualifier Winner includes ONE (1) entry into the WFFC Final contest on Sunday, December 10, 2017; ONE (1) entry into the Fan Championship on the same date; and a trip package consisting of $1,000 airfare credit, one-way transfer from airport to the event hotel, three (3) nights' accommodations for two (2) people, a $300 resort credit for Terranea Resort, and entry for two (2) people to the following events: the finalist welcome reception on December 8, 2017; the FanDuel cocktail hour on December 9, 2017; and the WFFC live final viewing party on December 10, 2017 (collectively, the "Trip Package"). Approximate Retail Value of the Trip Package is $4,000. Actual value depends on city/day/time of departure. Any difference between stated value and actual value will not be awarded. Airfare credit will be deposited in Finalist's account; Finalist is responsible for making all travel arrangements. 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 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday events, but will be subject to additional charges. Entry for additional guests is 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 five (5) 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 ($3,000). This choice shall also be offered to a user winning a third, fourth, or fifth entry. Once a user wins five 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 five (5) 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 three highest scoring unique entries in that Super Qualifier will each win one entry into the WFFC Final.
The WFFC Live Final will take place in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA on Sunday, December 10, 2017.
$4M Fan Championship Structure
The $4M Fan Championship is a multi-entry FanDuel NFL contest with 18,181 seats. It will run on Sunday, December 10th. There are two methods of entry: satellite contests ("Satellites") and direct entry. Satellites will be available each week from September 7th through December 4th and will award tickets to the Fan Championship. Users may also choose to enter the Fan Championship directly for an entry fee of $250. This option will be made available at least five days prior to the contest date of December 10th.
Each WFFC Qualifier, as well as the WFFC Live Final and the $4M Fan Championship and Satellite contests will use standard FanDuel NFL rosters and scoring rules, as explained here: https://www.fanduel.com/rules.
In the event of a tie for an entry into the WFFC Final in a WFFC Qualifier or Super 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 $33,333), an entry into the $4M Fan Championship, and Trip Package (retail value of $4,000) 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. Upon winning a Qualifier or Super Qualifier, Finalists will also receive a cash prize equal to the minimum possible payout for the WFFC Final ("Early Prize"). Should a Finalist be deemed ineligible for the WFFC Final, then he or she forfeits any right to receive any Early Prize.
The first place finisher in the WFFC Final will receive a cash prize of $500,000. All other prizes for the WFFC Final will be published when the first WFFC Qualifiers are created. Any Early Prize paid out to Finalists will be deducted from any prizes won in the WFFC 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 and Saturday events), 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 five 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. Winners are responsible for paying all taxes, fees, registration and insurance, for any prizes won in connection with this contest, including non-cash prizes.
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 Live Finalists will be given accommodations for the nights of December 8, 9, and 10, 2017 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. 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 his or her publicity obligations.
One ticket for guests to the Friday, Saturday & 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:
