ANNOUNCED: 2016 Footballguys Players Championship

Recommended Posts

The 2016 Footballguys Players Championship (FPC) is now open for the 2016 season.

 

A few items of importance:

 

- We know many of you begin your FF prep earlier and earlier each year, especially those of you playing in Dynasty leagues. With this in mind, we have scheduled the first FPC drafts starting Sunday June 5th, just 2 1/2 weeks from now. And if you think that's too early? No worries, there's a draft scheduled on each and every day thru Thursday, September 8th, right up until kickoff of the opening game of the 2016 NFL season. 

 

- As always, we have the early bird incentive. Register before Tuesday, June 30th, 2016 and receive a complimentary subscription to Footballguys.com Insider membership ($29.95 value). Purchase a 3-pack of FPC teams for $1,000 and receive a complimentary 3-year subscription ($64.95 value). If you already have a Footballguys.com Insider membership, the complimentary years will be added to the end of your current subscription. A maximum of 3 year subscription will be awarded per person regardless of FPC teams purchased by early bird deadline.

 

- If you have won a free entry(s) into the 2016 FPC in last year's contest, these entries are on your MyTeams page in a form of a "Credit". Simply to go your MyTeams page, click the REDEEM button and proceed with your registration. If you do not see a credit which you believe should be there, please email support@myffpc.com.

 

- Last year we introduced a single pre-season free agency period for all FPC leagues drafting before the Labor Day weekend. This year we have expanded on this with a second pre-season free agency period. Here's the new rule as written:

 

NEW RULE: Starting in 2016 there will now be TWO “preseason” free agency processes. The first is scheduled on Friday, September 2nd, 2016 at 10pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before Thursday, September 1st, 2016. The second is scheduled on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 at 10pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before Tuesday, September 6th, 2016. All FPC leagues drafted on or after Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 will begin free agency after NFL Week 1 has concluded.

 

Here are bullet points of all the FPC goodies.....

 

  • FPC Grand Prize of $250,000.
  • Championship round total prizes will pay down to 650th place.
  • Championship round cash prizes are paid down to 150th place.
  • 250 free 2017 FPC teams for places 151st to 400th, each valued at $350.
  • Footballguys lifetime & three-year subscriptions awarded from 401 to 650th place.
  • League prizes are $2,250, with a 2017 FFPC Main Event ($1,750 Value) for first place and $500 cash for second. A $1500 cash prize option is available instead of the Main Event team.
  • Contest entries are capped at 6,900 teams and all prizes are guaranteed.
  • Entire prize pool placed in escrow.
  • Online drafts will take place daily, beginning on Sunday, June 5th and run all the way thru Thursday, September 8th.
  • The entry fee remains the same at $350 per team, with a 3-pack of teams for $1,000 ($50 discount).

curious why did they lower the grand prize by a 100k?

 

it doesn't seem like more people are getting paid out or anything

Grand prize was lowered by $50k from $300 to $250. The contest team cap was also lowered from 7500 to 6900 teams.

Alex is there any way to sort the 'Manage Lineups' feature in the order of the dates you drafted the teams?  Seems to be in a random order. Just curious. Thx

No, we don't have the ability to sort the leagues on that page but we are looking to roll out the ability to custom sort the teams on your MyTeams page soon.

When do prizes go out?

Prizes were deposited a few days after the season ended and were available for withdrawal at that time. Currently, all withdrawal requests have been processed and prizes mailed out, mostly of them in early-mid January.
