Welcome to the 2017 World Fantasy Baseball Championship (WFBC). The WFBC consists of a series of qualifier contests (“WFBC Qualifiers”) and culminates in a live final in Chicago, IL (“WFBC Final”). Here are the detailed rules for the contest.
Players may qualify for the WFBC Final by winning an entry via WFBC Qualifiers. The WFBC Final will include a total of one hundred (100) entries. Multiple WFBC Qualifiers will run every MLB week starting on April 25th. Each WFBC Qualifier will award at least one entry into the WFBC Final, though FanDuel reserves the right to run WFBC Qualifiers that award more than one entry (“Super Qualifiers”). FanDuel also reserves the right to award entries into the WFBC Final through other promotions in its own discretion.
In each WFBC Qualifier, the entrant whose team scores the most fantasy points will secure one entry into the WFBC Final (“Qualifier Winner”). Super Qualifiers may award multiple entries into the WFBC to top finishers (“Super Qualifier Winner” and, collectively with Qualifier Winners, “Finalists”).
The prize for each Qualifier Winner and Super Qualifier Winner includes ONE (1) entry into the WFBC Final contest on Sunday, August 13, 2017, 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, and entry for two (2) people to the following events: the Saturday welcome reception on August 12, 2017 and the WFBC live final viewing party on August 13, 2017 (collectively, the “Trip Package”). Approximate Retail Value of the Trip Package is $3,000. 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 WFBC 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 and Saturday events, 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 WFBC Final. Should a user win a second entry into the WFBC 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 WFBC Final, he is ineligible to win any additional entries into the WFBC Final. Any user who enters a lineup in a WFBC Qualifier or Super Qualifier that finishes in a position to win an entry into the WFBC Final but would result in the user having an excess of THREE (3) entries into the WFBC Final will be awarded the cash value of the entry into the WFBC in lieu of winning another seat in the WFBC Final.
Super Qualifiers may be held, in which multiple entries into the WFBC Final are awarded. In a Super Qualifier the users with the highest scoring unique entries will win an entry into the WFBC Final in accordance with the number of entries into the WFBC Final being offered in that particular Super Qualifier. For example, if FanDuel announces that three entries into the WFBC 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 WFBC Final.
The WFBC Live Final will take place in Chicago, IL on Sunday, August 13, 2017.
Each WFBC Qualifier and Super Qualifier and the WFBC Final will use standard FanDuel MLB rosters and scoring rules, as explained here: https://www.fanduel.com/rules.
In the event of a tie for an entry into the WFBC Final in a WFBC 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 MLB rosters and scoring rules. All other ties (whether in the WFBC 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 WFBC Final (cash value of $15,000) and Trip Package (retail value of $3,000) 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 WFBC Final (“Early Prize”). Should a Finalist be deemed ineligible for the WFBC Final, then he or she forfeits any right to receive any Early Prize.
The first place finisher in the WFBC Final will receive a cash prize of $250,000. All other prizes for the WFBC Final will be published when the first WFBC Qualifiers are created. Any Early Prize paid out to Finalists will be deducted from any prizes won in the WFBC Final.
Participation in the WFBC Final and the payment of any prize won at the WFBC Final are contingent on strict compliance with the WFBC 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 Chicago (these include the Saturday 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 WFBC Final Affidavit of Eligibility.
Contestants are only eligible to qualify for a maximum of three seats in the WFBC Final.
All US residents who win an entry into the WFBC Finals will be required to provide address and social security details to be eligible for WFBC 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 WFBC 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 WFBC Finalists will be given accommodations for the nights of August 11, 12, and 13, 2017 at a hotel of FanDuel’s choosing in Chicago, IL. 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 WFBC 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 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 Baseball Championship (“WFBC”), and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, I agree as follows:
