League Prizes Go To $11,000

Main Event league prizes are increasing from $10,500 per league up to $11,000. This will set yet another industry-record by the FFPC for the largest league prize in the history of high stakes fantasy football contest.

Let's take a look at these league prizes in the context of the Early Bird pricing which is $1550 per team and $1450 for additional teams. For those who register early and take advantage of the early bird, the percentage of league payouts are an astounding 60% at the $1550 entry fee! If you pick up a second team at $1450, the league payouts are an even more amazing 63% of the total entry fees collected. That is another high stakes record for the highest-ever percentage of entry fees paid out as league prizes. Keep in mind, all that is needed to reserve your team now is a simple $200 deposit.

FFPC Introduces the "Sweep" Bonus

Regular Season Prizes (Weeks 1-11).

The $11,000 Main Event league prize distribution has been revamped ever so slightly to offer another way to award the more successful teams while keeping a well balanced prize structure at the league level.

A total of $5,000 is awarded to the 1-seed & 2-seeds for the regular season performance (Weeks 1-11) with the following breakdown:
  • 1-Seed - Team with the best H2H record - $2,000*
  • 2-Seed - Remaining team with most points - $2,000**
*If the 1-Seed team also finishes with the most regular season points, it will be awarded a $1,000 "Sweep Bonus" for a total regular season prize of $3,000.
**If there is no winner of the $1,000 "Sweep" Bonus, both the 1-Seed and 2-Seed teams will split the $1,000 for a total regular season prize of $2,500 each.

League Playoffs Prizes (Weeks 12-13)

The remaining $6,000 is awarded in the league playoffs in weeks 12 and 13. Here are those prizes:
