ANNOUNCED: 2017 Footballguys Players Championship (1 Viewer)

Alex - FFPC

The 2017 Footballguys Players Championship (FPC) is now open for the 2017 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 4th, just a few short 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 7th, right up until kickoff of the opening game of the 2017 NFL season. 

- As always, we have the early bird incentive. Register before Friday, June 30th, 2017 and receive a complimentary subscription to Footballguys.com Insider Pro membership ($34.95 value). Purchase a 3-pack of FPC teams for $1,000 and receive a complimentary 3-year subscription ($72.95 value). If you already have a Footballguys.com Insider Pro 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 2017 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 have expanded to TWO pre-season free agency periods for any FPC leagues which draft before Friday, September 1st . Here's the new rule as written:

NEW RULE: Starting in 2016 there will now be TWO “pre-season” free agency processes. The first is scheduled on the Friday prior to Labor Day weekend, at 10pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before the Thursday prior to Labor Day weekend. The second is scheduled on Wednesday after Labor Day weekend, at 10pm ET for any FPC league which draft concludes on or before Tuesday, after Labor Day weekend. All FPC leagues drafted on or after Wednesday, after Labor Day weekend will begin free agency after NFL Week 1 has concluded.

- Start by State eligibility: As many of you have probably heard, there are fantasy laws being passed across the county with the intention to regular the DFS industry. Unfortunately, the season-long game operators like the FFPC are forced to become licensed and comply with most of these laws, which include taxes, fees and burdensome regulations. In most cases, the FFPC will be able to meet these requirements but in some cases we will not. We recently received our license to operate in New York. We are also operating in states like Massachusetts, Colorado and Maryland, which have adapted fantasy sports laws. Sadly, we had to exit certain other states like Tennessee, Virginia, Indiana and Missouri, all of which have laws which are too costly and too burdensome for us to comply with. (In case of Missouri, the current law is in the process of being changed so we are expecting to return to Missouri at some point, hopefully this summer). So what does this mean for those of you who live in the restricted states? Unfortunately, we cannot accept entries, payments, or send prizes to residents in these states. For more information on eligibility and other compliance issues, please see the FFPC Terms & Conditions page or email us at support@myffpc.com.
