Footballguys FanDuel Championship - $75K in prizes

Get two companies as big as Footballguys and FanDuel together and this is what you end up with...The Footballguys / FanDuel Championship. Over $75,000 will be awarded in this 16 week contest.

and the best part...

The first two weeks are completely FREE to enter. All you need to do is have a FanDuel account that is flagged with the FBG designator code to enter. This is a special tournament for people with the FBG designator.

and what it takes to sign up (and get the FBG designator) is PAINLESS:

All FanDuel requires is your first and last name and an email address. No credit card info. No where do you live, etc. Just your name, email and a password and you are good to register and play in this contest for the first two weeks. You also will be able to play in other FanDuel freerolls that they offer.

  • *** Quick Signup Link
  • *** Contest Link
  • If you deposit $25 or more, you will be required to give credit card or PayPal info, but you will get a free Footballguys subscription (either this year or if you are already a Footballguys Insider, a year will be added).

  • If you deposit $0, you just enter your name, email address and a password to access your FanDuel account.

  • Then log into FanDuel and you can see the Footballguys FanDuel Championship in the lobby (using the lobby assistant, move the entry fee bar to "free" and you will see the tournament near the top). Fill out your roster and take a shot at the prizes.

    How the contest will work:

    Starting September 9th, every week for 15 weeks, we will host a qualifying contest. These qualifying leagues will last just one week each and each one will have runner-up prizes of $2,000. The top 2 placed finishers will win entry in to the Footballguys FanDuel Championship Grand Final.

    Normally the qualifying contests will carry an entry fee but for the first two qualifiers will be completely free. That's right, you will be able to enter for absolutely nothing and have a chance of qualifying for the grand final and taking home the $15,000 1st place.

    The Footballguys FanDuel Championship is intended for Footballguys readers only. The contest will only be seen by players with the FBG designation.

    Each week the link to the qualifier will be posted at and emailed to you in the FBG Daily update. You'll also be able to see the contest in the lobby at FanDuel.

    FanDuel reserves the right to alter these rules as required.
