The FFPC Main Event prize structure is once again being increased at EVERY LEVEL: grand prize, championship round prizes and league prize.
The Grand Prize is going from $200,000 to $250,000, or a quarter of a million dollars.
The Championship round prize structure is also increasing by a substantial amount with an additional $72,000 in guaranteed prizes. There is now over $400,000 in guaranteed prizes in the FFPC Main Event Championship round which will now pay down to 40th place. 2nd place is now up to $30,000, 3rd place moves up to $15,000 along with substantial other increases.
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.
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:

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