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 more than 200 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!

Once again, the FFPC will kick off its Vegas events in style by throwing the now legendary opening game viewing party at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. This will be the 12th annual Kickoff Party, and it has truly become an FFPC tradition. Hundreds of fantasy football die-hards in a giant ballroom, guaranteed seating and a massive 20-foot monitor with a custom Dolby surround sound showing the NFL season’s first game of the year!
The FFPC Kickoff Party is free for all FFPC participants!
That’s right, FREE!
But that’s not all. Not only is the Kickoff Party free, but there will also be food served with a great menu, compliments of the FFPC! And don’t forget the fully stocked cash bar which will be open at 4:00 p.m. PT in addition to the free non-alcoholic beverages as well.
This party is the FFPC’s way of saying “Thank You” to all the players that continue supporting our events. Any FFPC player who is listed as a primary participant for the FFPC Main Event or any of the Live Ancillary leagues on Thursday, Friday or Saturday can gain free access. In addition, each primary participant can also bring one (1) guest, free of charge. The Kickoff Party is also open to all other guests at a $50 admission which may be paid in advance or at the door, prior to entering.
IMPORTANT: All attendees MUST PLACE their names as well as the name of their guest on the Kickoff Party guest list. Anyone NOT on the guest list will not gain free entry and be asked to pay the $50 admission. The guest list will remain open until August 30th, 2019. For guestlist information please contact Chris Lambert.
As a reminder, players, 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.
Our redraft Best Ball slow draft leagues at entry fees of $35, $77 and $250 are open for entry and continue to fill daily. Jump in now, and make this your best summer ever!
NEW FOR 2019: The FFPC has added a $35 credit as a second-place prize for $35 leagues. The payout percentage for $35 leagues now exceeds 90%.
Anyone that loves drafting should jump in now and draft a 2019 Best Ball team tonight!
