It’s time to wash those swim trunks and dust off those bathing suits – FanDuel has announced the return of its 2017 World Fantasy Basketball Championship (WFBBC) live final. This final event will occur in Miami, Florida on Sunday, March 26, 2017.
One hundred entrants will compete for a piece of the $2 million dollar prize pool, with first place netting $300,000. Entrants are selected through a series of qualifier contests run by FanDuel every NBA week starting on January 4, 2017. Contests will range in buy-in size, allowing all grinders a chance to win a seat.
Each WFBBC seat has a value of $20,000 and includes one entry into the final, a trip package consisting of $1,000 airfare credit, one-way transfer from airport to the event hotel, two nights’ accommodations for two people, and entry for two people to the following events: the Friday welcome reception on March 24, 2017, the FanDuel party on March 25, 2017, and the WFBBC live viewing party on March 26, 2017. Approximate retail value of the trip package is $2,800. For more details, you can find them here.
Here’s a breakdown of the payout structure, with all contestants coming away with at least $7,000
While each qualifier event will award the top scorer one seat to the live final, FanDuel may run Super Qualifier events, which will award multiple entrants. Contestants are only eligible to win a maximum of three seats to the final.
Qualifier contests are now live in the FanDuel lobby.
