    Looks like there is some sort of partnership with Draft which is cool. Draft has two WSOF Finals that will take place in NYC along with Fanduel’s festivities.

    Now where is Draftkings? They announced their plans in July last year.

    The only thing I saw DraftKings announcing about the FFWC in July of last year was their 2017 event that was in Miami. That Miami one already took place. This year, there was no word from the peanut gallery from them about any FFWC tournament. I know their rival FanDuel was the only one this year to make any announcement of the live football tournament. We knew since earlier this summer that they were going to be in New York. DraftKings has yet to make any sort of announcement. I don’t know why they’re waiting since the season is starting in about two weeks.

    Draftkings Live Final is up….and if I’m seeing this correctly it’s the same weekend as the Fanduel/Draft WFFC?

    Yeah, you are correct. Something has got to change, otherwise FD and DK just created a huge cluster f.

    Not really. If you make it to both, you’re going to the DK one and trying to find a proxy for the FD one. It’s pretty clear cut. Not a whole lot of participants showed up to last year’s FD final anyway and many (myself included) left early because it was like a ghost town in there.

    The pro move is to book two flights the day of the final: one to Ft. Lauderdale and one to New York. Then you can just go to whichever final you’re doing better in.

    I know with FanDuel, if you don’t show up for their live event and you finish 1st-3rd, they take 50% of your winnings? What does DraftKings to do someone that doesn’t show? It doesn’t say in their terms and conditions. I know at the baseball thing, a few didn’t show up for both.
