$200,000 FFWC Main Event

If you don't understand why draft day isn't a national holiday, then you're definitely in the right place. The Main Event is the marquee draft of the Fantasy Football World Championships. Come join us for a weekend of strategizing, trash-talking, and of course…football. Vegas is the perfect setting for this event, drawing the best of the best from the world of fantasy football.

Excited yet? Because we are. So, gather your friends, pack your favorite jersey and draft until you can't anymore, then it's time to hit the strip and watch as the season kicks off. Don't feel like making the trek to Sin City? No problem, join the Main Event online.

How It Works:
Sign up as an individual, or with a trusted team of your fantasy football co-conspirators. Once you've registered, you will be assigned a draft position. Teams will be separated into 12 – team leagues. Once you've signed up, you'll be able to monitor your victories (and your competition's failures) in real-time online. At the end of the regular season, the top 4 teams of each league will be eligible for the post-season. And that's when things get really serious….two-hundred thousand dollars serious. The winner at the end of the post-season takes home the cash, the title, and the knowledge that they're the best.

Regular Season:

  • 13 weeks with 12 team leagues.
  • Weeks 1 & 2: All Play.
  • Weeks 3 thru 13: Play all teams once.

Blind Bid Free Agency:

  • Wednesdays: Open to all available free agent players.
  • Fridays: Open to all available free agent players – not to players dropped on Wednesday.

Bidding starts after week 1 of the NFL season and the last bidding is between NFL week 12 and week 13.

Players cut after NFL week 10 can not be re-acquired by any team in that league.
