Contest Release

The Pro Football contest will appear in your organization's Contest listing near the beginning of August for all partners who license Contests.

First Game - Thursday, September 10, 2020

The first ProFootball game is scheduled for September 10th. Users will be able to register for the contest as soon as the contest is published.

We will attempt to open Week 1 for users to make their picks as early as possible, but will be monitoring news about the schedule before opening picks.

Tip! Users will have up until 5 minutes before each game starts to submit their picks.

How it Works

Each week, users will select the team they believe will be the winner of each pro football regular season and playoff game for that week, as well as predict the score for the winning and losing teams for the designated tie-breaker game of each week.

You may also choose to run our separate Survivor Game. Within the Survivor Game, users will select one team they are sure will win each week. If the team the user picks for that week wins, they advance to the next week. However, users can only pick each team to win one time during the regular season.

If the team the user picks for that week loses, they will be able to continue to play and are eligible for the second chance prize. Participants with two (2) or more wrong guesses can continue to play for fun and are eligible to win a national prize selected randomly from all participants in the Survivor Game.

Reminder emails will be sent on the Wednesday of the current week at 5:00pm ET. You can learn more about editing the template of your reminder emails here!
