DRAFT Announces $100K NFL Live Final in Nashville

The biggest rising star in the DFS landscape, DRAFT, continues to make big moves in the industry. They recently acquired the domain rights for draft.com (replacing playdraft.com), and this follows big news in the past six months that included Paddy Power Betfair acquiring the company and sponsorship deals with numerous big-name athletes, including Floyd Mayweather and Shaquille O’Neal.

Recently they started accepting signups for their just announced live NFL final in their lobby, and it’ll be held in conjunction with the RotoGrinders annual party here in Nashville, Tennessee.

Let’s learn more about this exciting opportunity to win a “Golden Ticket” to this exclusive event.

For the next ten weeks, DRAFT will hold a weekly qualifier where the winner will receive an entry into a 10-person $100K live draft final to be held in Nashville on Week 11 of the NFL season (November 18th). Included with this entry will be hotel and airfare for two. One important note – attendance at this event is mandatory (why would you not want to party with all the DFS legends?)!

The Live Final qualifier winners will be competing for the following prize pool:

1. $40,000
2. $25,000
3. $10,000
4. $7,000
5. $5,000
6. $4,000
7. $3,000
8. $2,500
9. $2,000
10. $1,500

The first qualifier is already up in the lobby and it’s a $100 128 entrant bracket head-to-head challenge (single entry). Win seven straight matches and you’ll win the Golden Ticket! There are still spots available for this weeks qualifier so hurry over to DRAFT to get your entry in.

Each week we’ll have a forum post announcing that week’s qualifier and DRAFT representatives will be nearby to answer any and all questions you might have about the event and qualifying contests.

Details of where the event will be held are still to be determined, but Saturday, November 18th will include the live draft for the 10 qualifiers and then a social gathering with free food and drinks (good times not optional). On Sunday, November 19th, there will be a massive viewing party to watch all the NFL games and see who takes home the title.
