LEAGUES

Want to have a chance at WINNING AN EXTRA $3,000 AND PLAY AGAINST YOUR FRIENDS? Then be sure to include a VERY UNIQUE LEAGUE NAME when submitting your entry. Share that league name with your friends and have them enter with the EXACT SAME LEAGUE NAME with their entry. The top entry from a league with 5 or more participants will win $3,000 for its league to be split evenly among all leaguemates. The more leaguemates, the better your chance to win!

Users will have a chance to enter a “League Name” on their Entry Form. Users will be able to enter a League Name and share said League Name with their friends. The top entry from a league with 5 or more participants will win $3,000 for its league to be split evenly among all leaguemates.

Unfortunately, not. Only one entry per user and one league per entry is allowed at this time. If you wish to switch your league, simply resubmit your bracket with the same email and all information associated with your prior entry (including league
name) will be overwritten.

We put this tournament together as quickly as possible to give sports fans some much needed entertainment and don’t have functionality allowing us to validate whether your league name is already in use. Therefore, you need to think of something unusual preferably with letters, numbers and special characters.

Just send them the EXACT league name you used when entering your bracket. League names MUST be an exact match and we will not be able to update any league names after the tournament has begun.

If an entry from your league places highest among all entries from leagues with 5 or more users, your league will win $3,000 total to be split among all leaguemates.
