While COVID-19 has forced the cancellation or postponement of many events in 2020, one thing that has resumed in modified form has been sports. The NBA and NHL seasons have come back without a hitch, albeit with the athletes being housed in bubbles for a few months. Baseball has also resumed with minimal disruptions after experts claimed it could never happen.
Now football season is almost here, and the NFL is hell bent on starting and completing its season. Some teams will even have fans in the stands in a limited capacity. And with that comes FCNews’ seventh annual Fantasy Football for a Cause league. Registration is now open for individuals and companies to compete against each other for a chance to win $15,000 for their charity or cause of choice.
FCNews’ Fantasy Football for a Cause league is open to floor covering industry members of all experience levels. No fantasy experience is necessary. Every dollar of the proceeds will be donated to charity.
The online draft will be held Sept. 10 at 5 p.m. EST. Those who are unable to make the draft or designate someone to draft their team for them can choose ESPN’s “auto-pick draft” option to accumulate players based on pre-draft rankings. We’ll also manage the league using ESPN. All you need to do is log in each week and choose your starting players. There will also be weekly pickups, so teams can be improved throughout the season.
The league will follow the regular season schedule and end after Week 13. The top six teams will make the playoffs, which are held in weeks 14-16.
This is an excellent opportunity to support and create awareness for a meaningful cause and enjoy some friendly competition, so be sure to reserve your spot. To join, send an email to Dustin Aaronson at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: your name, company name and charity or cause of choice. We’ll send out payment information once you have expressed interest in joining.
The entry fee is $5,000 per fantasy football team.
