Main Event - Summary
The guy to your left is Glenn Lowy, from Farmingville NY. Yes that's a check for $150,000. He's the current reigning champion of the 2013 Fantasy Football World Championship, commonly referred to as The FFWC, and the guy to beat in 2014. He beat 335 other teams last year and had a fantasy season for the record books! He signed up to play, because like many others, he feels that draft day should be a National Holiday. If you feel the same, you're definitely in the right place! Now this isn't one of those salary cap daily games. The World Championship is a season-long, draft your team once and submit a lineup every week fantasy league that you know and love.
The team here at Fulltime Fantasy (who own and operate FFToolbox.com ) host the now Award-Winning Fantasy Football World Championships. Think World Series of Poker meets the NFL. Draft your team, or teams, online from home and/or join us on NFL Opening Weekend (Sept 4th thru 7th) in Las Vegas at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in their amazing Grand Ballroom for a fantasy football experience you'll NEVER forget. Cap off your memorable weekend at our FREE Sunday NFL Viewing Party and leave Vegas, for the first time, a winner, with your team that you'll manage to the top all season long.
In two short years time, the World Championships is already THE marquee high stakes contest on the planet, with the most player friendly format, a $150,000 Grand Prize and $12,500 in League Prizes. You can draft Live in Vegas, Online from Home or both! REGISTER NOW and take your shot at glory! Welcome to the world of High Stakes Fantasy Football!
How it Works: All players that enter (a maximum of 504 teams will be accepted this year), are grouped into leagues made up of 12 teams each where you'll be assigned a random draft position. Some leagues draft in vegas while others draft online from home, but ALL are competing to win their league and the Title of World Champion. Players compete in a 13-week regular season against 11 league mates in our FFWC signature 11-man starting lineup, for the largest league prizes you'll find anywhere! Dominate your league and walk away with 10 stacks of high society! That's right, $10,000! Then, the Top 4 teams from each league advance to the Championship Round in weeks 14 through 16, where things really get serious. Competing for over $200,000 in prizes, the team finishing at the Top of the Leaderboard will be crowned our 2014 Fantasy Football World Champion. Is that you? We'll soon see.
"Tell me More!" Figured you might say that. One thing about the FFWC you'll notice is options. Some players want to experience it all, the trip to vegas, the live drafts, meeting all your new friends, hanging in the sportsbook, going to the parties etc.. while others just want to draft and compete. While we've never met a player that came out to Vegas that didn't tell us, "I'll never miss this again!" we do understand that a trip may not be possible, so we have a solution...join the Main Event Online from Home! Yes, we have a full Online Schedule of draft options starting on August 24th all the way to Saturday September 6th. You can become the World Champion (like Glenn Lowy did), drafting online from home.

That's not all! There's a whole lot more going on besides the World Championship. Hang out on our message board and you'll find people just like you who love this hobby of ours with a passion. We have players who've been drafting all year long. Check out the Hardcore League Draft Board. Yes, some players literally draft all year long, so come September, they are fully prepared to draft a championship team. Do they have an edge? Maybe, maybe not. The real practice heats up in August, after training camps and into pre-season.
"Tell me more about drafting LIVE in Vegas."
The Fantasy Sports Trade Association named us the Best Live Event of 2013. Are we honored? You bet we are. To be recognized by our peers in the industry is great, but your impression is what counts the most. This award is validation for what we pulled off in 2013, but it raises the bar even higher. We look at it as a challenge to hold on, so we're even more pumped than ever about 2014. Do not miss the 2014 LIVE EVENT which will be bigger and better than last season.
Join us on NFL Opening Weekend (Sept 4-7) in Las Vegas at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in their amazing Grand Ballroom for a draft experience you'll NEVER forget. Take part in some or all of the festivities, it's really up to you. Visit our Live Events Schedule and choose from our many available draft dates and times and decide what parties to attend.
Travel alone, with your spouse or with friends. The weekend is your design and we're just glad to be a part of it! Some draft while their spouses relax at the spa or pool, while others join in the fun and sit at the draft table. You are allowed one guest co-manager at the draft (no annoying co-manager fees). Wi-fi and cell signal are available in the Grand Ballroom. Power outlets are also available for charging laptops and tablets.
DID YOU SAY PARTIES?
Our Kickoff Party, in one word is amazing! Be in the middle of all the action, IN the Mirage Sportsbook Lounge, with food, drinks and reserved seating especially for YOU and your guest, to watch the kickoff game with all your new fantasy friends! DraftKings is sponsoring the event this year. All you need is a player account to attend. You can get one HERE. Being in the SportsBook on opening night is where it's at! This year it will be the Seahawks taking on either the Broncos, Niners or Packers. We can't wait!
The "After Party" - This year we have a party planned for Saturday night. Drinks, music and VIP Treatment. (Details to be announced)
Then cap off your weekend at our Sunday NFL Viewing Party (breakfast, drinks and lunch provided) and leave Vegas with your first win of the season!
WHAT MAKES THE FFWC UNIQUE?
1. 11-man starting lineup - This rewards those who have an eye for talent in the middle to late rounds reducing the "luck factor.
2. 13 week regular season - First two weeks is all-play where the top 6 scores earn wins. Never start the season 0-2 due to unlucky scheduling again. Weeks 3-13 play each opponent once. We went to a 13 week schedule because we believe every team should still be alive on Thanksgiving (week 13) , the biggest football day of the season.
3. The Dominator Prize - Dominate your league and win $10,000. Dominate = Best record and most points after 13 weeks.
4. Top 4 Teams Advance - 4 teams from each league win a Ticket into the Championship Round. You entered the World Championship for a shot at the Grand Prize. Finish in the top 4 and you'll have earned that shot.
5. Weekly Prizes - The top scoring team in the contest each week, earns themselves and each of their 11 league mates a cool crisp c-note. Win this for your league and you'll instantly make 11 new best friends! This also helps the "I quit" factor which is commonly found in other contests.
6. League Prizes - Our leagues boast the largest league prizes in the industry. At this level of competition, it's all about Return On Investment.
7. High Stakes Waivers - This isn't your home league where your buddy hears big news on a player and scoops them up off the waiver wire before you get home from work. The FFWC employs something called FAAB. It stands for Free Agent Acquisition Bidding. Each week you are given two opportunities to add players to your team (Wed night at 9pm and Friday night at 9pm). You are given $1,000 "BID BUCKS" to last you the whole year. Run out, and you're done adding free agents, so spend it wisely. Bids can range from $1 to $1,000. When some unknown RB breaks out after week one for 80 and 2 Touchdowns, you have to decide how much he's worth to your team and bid accordingly. On Wednesday at 9, "waivers run" and you will find out the results. If you didn't get the guys you wanted, you still have another chance on Friday night to get somebody to cover that bye week. We will release a few video tutorials this year that help explain this so you can master Blind Bidding.
All of this and more for an entry fee of $1,695 for a fantasy season you'll never forget and for one skilled drafter, a lifetime of memories. Ready to join this fraternity of fantasy? Reserve your spot NOW with a $200 Deposit. Pay your remaining balance by June 30 and receive your draft slot in July!
THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY - Yes it is and we take the responsibility very seriously. First of all, FFToolbox has been around since 1997, so we're not a fly by night operation. Secondly, we have taken extra precautionary steps to ensure players don't have to rest on name reputation alone. All of your prizes (every dollar) are fully guaranteed. The prize pool is sacred to us. The prize fund is always protected in a segregated prize account at Wells Fargo. This means that these funds will never be co-mingled with the operating accounts of the business. Additionally, feel free to ask for the feedback from our players. We love hearing first hand testimonials.
If you still have questions, JOIN THE MAILING LIST! and keep up to date with everything that's going on or EMAIL US with any question you might have! We're players ourselves and all of our friends are players so we live, breathe and eat fantasy. Get to know OUR TEAM better.
INTERACT WITH US ON OUR MESSAGE BOARD where you'll find a ton of other things being talked about!
