Welcome to the 2018 World Fantasy Basketball Classic
Welcome to the 2018 World Fantasy Basketball Championship Weekend ("WFBBC"). The WFBBC consists of a series of qualifier contests ("WFBBC Qualifiers") and culminates with the WFBBC Finals contests at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts ("WFBBC Finals"). Here are the detailed rules for the WFBBC.
Players may qualify for the WFBBC Finals by winning an entry via WFBBC Qualifiers. The WFBBC Final will include a total of one-hundred (100) entries. Multiple WFBBC Qualifiers will run every NBA week starting on October 25th. Each WFBBC Qualifier will award at least one entry into the WFBBC Finals, though FanDuel reserves the right to run WFBBC Qualifiers that award more than one entry ("Super Qualifiers"). FanDuel also reserves the right to award entries into the WFBBC Finals through other promotions in its own discretion.
In each WFBBC Qualifier, the entrant whose team scores the most fantasy points will secure one entry into the WFBBC Finals ("Qualifier Winner"). Super Qualifiers may award entry into the WFBBC 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 WFBBC Finals contest on Saturday, February 24, 2018; and a trip package consisting of $1,000 airfare credit, round-trip transfer from airport to the event hotel, two (2) nights' accommodations for two (2) people, and entry for two (2) people to the following events: the finalist welcome reception on Friday, February 23, 2018; and the WFBBC live final viewing party on Saturday, February 24, 2018 (collectively, the "Trip Package"). Approximate Retail Value of the Trip Package is $2,800. 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 WFBBC Finals and Trip Package are non-transferable, except where noted otherwise in these terms and conditions. Additional guests may be able to attend the Friday and Saturday 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 WFBBC Finals. Should a user win a second entry into the WFBBC 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 ($2,100). This choice shall also be offered to a user winning a third, fourth, or fifth entry. Once a user wins five entries into the WFBBC Final, he is ineligible to win any additional entries into the WFBBC Final. Any user who enters a lineup in a WFBBC Qualifier or Super Qualifier that finishes in a position to win an entry into the WFBBC Final but would result in the user having an excess of five (5) entries into the WFBBC Final will be awarded the cash value of the entry into the WFBBC in lieu of winning another seat in the WFBBC Final.
Super Qualifiers may be held, in which multiple entries into the WFBBC Final are awarded. In a Super Qualifier the users with the highest scoring entries will win an entry into the WFBBC Final in accordance with the number of entries into the WFBBC Final being offered in that particular Super Qualifier. For example, if FanDuel announces that three entries into the WFBBC Final will be awarded in a specific Super Qualifier, then the three highest scoring entries in that Super Qualifier will each win one entry into the WFBBC Final.
The WFBBC Finals will take place at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts on Saturday, February 24, 2018.
Each WFBBC Qualifier, as well as the WFBBC Finals, will use standard FanDuel NBA rosters and scoring rules, as explained here: https://www.fanduel.com/rules.
In the event of a tie for an entry into the WFBBC Final in a WFBBC 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 or private league contest using standard FanDuel NBA rosters and scoring rules. All other ties (whether in the WFBBC 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 WFBBC Finals (cash value of $20,000), and Trip Package (retail value of $2,800) 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 WFBBC Finals ("Early Prize"). Should a Finalist be deemed ineligible for the WFBBC Finals, then he or she forfeits any right to receive any Early Prize.
The first place finisher in the WFBBC Finals will receive a cash prize of $300,000. All other prizes for the WFBBC Finals will be published when the first WFBBC Qualifiers are created. Any Early Prize paid out to Finalists will be deducted from any prizes won in the WFBBC Finals.
Participation in the WFBBC Finals and the payment of any prize won at the WFBBC Finals are contingent on strict compliance with the WFBBC Finals 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 Springfield, Massachusetts (these include the Friday event), 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 WFBBC Finals Affidavit of Eligibility.
Contestants are only eligible to qualify for a maximum of five seats in the WFBBC Finals.
All US residents who win an entry into the WFBBC Finals will be required to provide address and social security details to be eligible for WFBBC Finals. These details will be used to file a 1099-MISC with the Internal Revenue Service for any players whose winnings on FanDuel exceeds $600 for the prior year. 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 WFBBC Finals 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 WFBBC Finalists will be given accommodations for the nights of February 23rd and 24th, 2018 at the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts. 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 WFBBC Finals 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 and Saturday 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 Basketball Championship ("WFBBC"), and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, I agree as follows:
