Fill Your Sunday with Main Events and the 2017 Draft-A-Thon

Your 2017 Main Event Opportunity

Six Spots Left in The Main Event Draft Tonight

The 2017 FFPC Main Event is well underway! And if you want to draft live at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, then we are coming up on your last chance to enter.

Drafting online? Spots are available TONIGHT and this weekend.
Pick up an additional team for $1500 and register now!

Remember players that LIVE Main Event spots are getting limited now. We only have one more official drawing for draft slots, and then we will begin to fill drafts as needed. Last year’s Main Event sold out early, and it appears that we are well on our way to another sellout this year. We may even have a couple of live spots left for people who are interested in jumping in at the last second at Planet Hollywood as well. In any event, don’t delay any longer or you may miss your chance!

Fewer than 120 online teams remain in the Main Event!

IMPORTANT: Draft times can and will close at any time.

Here are the FINAL GUARANTEED Main Event spots:

Also don’t forget that if you wanted to add another Main Event squad, you’ll get a hefty discount all the way down to $1500 online ($1625 live). That’s the lowest price we will offer this season and could be just the ticket to life-changing money before the end of the year! The 2017 Main Event prize structure is guaranteed regardless of the final amount of entries.

After these leagues fill this weekend, we will only be taking wait listed teams for the final online Main Event draft time, and there is no guarantee that your league will fill after that.
