Did You Get Your $50 Discount Yet?

The 2020 Footballguys Players Championship is filling up fast, players--don't miss out! This competition features a guaranteed prize pool with a $500,000 grand prize and over $3,000,000 million total prize pool. That's right--we've doubled the grand prize to $500,000! The 2020 FPC contest is capped at 10,800 teams. All prizes are fully guaranteed.

Here are all the details on this year's competition:

  • Drafts going off daily
  • $3,100,000 prize pool (Up $800,000 from last year)
  • Teams are $350 each (or a three-pack of teams for $1000--save $50!)

Remember, you now have the opportunity to draft to win $500,000 every day from now until the start of the NFL season.

Another new feature we rolled out is that switching or leaving drafts both in the FPC and the rest of our FFPC drafts just became a whole lot more user-friendly. If you need to bounce out of a league, you won’t need to send an email to us anymore. All you have to do is click on the “EXIT LEAGUE” button on the league homepage. You then will remove yourself instantly as long as it is not less than 15 minutes before the start of your draft and fewer than 10 teams are registered.

We already have numerous leagues filled, so if you want to join, check out the schedule posted here, including an afternoon draft today:
