The 2019 Footballguys Players Championship will be the first year we have added the following prize structure for league winners. Check out the options you’ll have below when you win your league(s) in the contest this season (new option highlighted in bold):
- $1,500 Cash
- (1) Free Entry into 2020 FFPC Main Event ($1,850 Value)
- (5) Free Entries into 2020 Footballguys Players Championship ($1,700 value)
- $500 Cash plus 2020 Footballguys Players Championship 3-Pack ($1,500 Value)
That means you’ll have five cracks at the six-figure grand prize in 2020 when you secure your league championship this season. Not to mention the possibility of taking down five MORE leagues next season, too!
This year’s FPC already has well over 100 drafts in the books. More than $2,300,000 in prizes will be awarded after the 2019 season including the $250,000 grand prize. At only a $350 entry fee, can you afford not to play in this tournament?
You’ll get your draft slot as soon as your league fills–which won’t take long, we promise! The prize pool–paying all the way down to 800th place–has been increased, but the two preseason waiver wires we introduced last season remain. And the league prize values are up to $2350 this season as well, so grab your preferred draft times and dates now!

As a reminder, FFPC Slow drafts (Best Ball, Classic & Victory Points) have a six-hour clock (timer per pick). There is also a pause between the hours of 2 AM and 8 AM ET (11 PM and 5 AM PT) to protect teams from missing a pick during nighttime hours. Teams may make picks during the pause when it is their turn. All other Draft room functionality, like adjusting players in Queue and turning on/off Autodraft, will be available during the pause.
There are slow drafts in some league formats available with a two-hour clock also with the same nightly pause. These drafts are for players looking for a much faster slow draft experience. Please check the draft lobby to see which drafts are available with a two-hour clock.

Don’t forget about the other great high stakes leagues going on at Planet Hollywood including–but not limited to–the events below:
Since FFPC’s launch in 2008, we’ve used the Victory Points format for our high stakes leagues like the $5,000-entry Big Payback, the $10,000-entry High Society and all FFPC Dynasty leagues. Victory Points (aka VP) format quickly became a player favorite as it created an extremely competitive and exciting league dynamics. VPs also enhanced H2H league play by making it more fun and less random! Naturally, it only made sense to offer even more leagues in the VP format so we introduced the Victory Points Cash Leagues. Drafts are all held online and are offered as Slow or Live online drafts. Entry fees are at $500, $750, $1000 and $2500 price points with excellent prize payouts.
