An inside look at the 2012 FFPC Live Event.
The Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) was launched in 2008 by veteran high stakes fantasy football players Alex Kaganovsky and Dave Gerczak with four primary goals in mind - all with players as the focus: foster a great community, provide exceptional customer service, offer fast payouts of escrowed prizes, and stage live events in top Vegas venues.
These goals are still our main driving force, even as the FFPC has become the most widely participated high stakes fantasy contest on the planet. Each year, the independently-owned FFPC continues to raises the bar in the industry. This freedom allows the FFPC team to set its business plans without the restraint of meeting profit goals, having to answer to corporate management or a board of investors.
That's our mission. Continue what we started. March to the beat of our own drum. Offer players a home for their hobby. Keep our promises. And most importantly, always put players first.
The Ownership that created the FFPC are players that appreciate the desires and essentials of the High Stakes player. They have the vision and foresight to not only provide those essential expectations but surpass them with superior formatting and guaranteed fast payouts. They have the ability to provide a top line product while still taking into consideration each player's individual tastes and concerns.
Customer service. I'm of the belief if someone has a product to sell and they are constantly pushing customer service and not the product there is something lacking in the product. To me customer service is not something that should be sold to clients, it's something clients should experience when using the product of goods being sold. So customer service is not why I joined but it is something I've come to experience and a major reason I never consider spending my fantasy dollars any other place but here. And while the customer service has always been excellent here it went up a notch when Chris Lambert came aboard.
For me it was about the level of the competition. I have participated in my local HSFF home league for nearly 20 years and have become bored with it. I wanted to challenge the best players on earth! ….the FFPC was where the focus was the players. It was an easy decision for me to join the FFPC.… I'm going nowhere I'm in this for the long-haul. Dave said it best "to be the best you must beat the best.
At first I liked it but I really wasn't sure about the scoring system and the double flex. But now that I have been in the contest for 3 years I really appreciate both of those. The double flex really gives you the opportunity to go for the players you feel have the most upside when you draft as opposed to being boxed into taking a certain position. My first year in the FFPC I remember starting out WR/WR/WR and last year I started RB/RB/RB/RB. It's a lot of fun having this kind of versatility.
When you start playing in the FFPC you have so much fun that it becomes in your interest to promote it and spread it to friends and favorite competitors. The genius of Alex and Dave's set-up is that, by creating such a player-friendly environment, they convert players to volunteer advertisers and promoters, and all end up profiting by this spontaneous recruitment.
I'm astonished and grateful that I've came across a bunch of folks here on this [FFPC] message board who are just as passionate about fantasy football as I am, and who are loyal enough to the game to see that things are done the right way with honesty and integrity...... I'm glad to have finally found a place that I will consider my fantasy home for the next few years, and I look forward to competing against the rest of you while getting to know some of you later down the road.
The FFPC Main Event offers a hybrid draft format, combining six live, in person Las Vegas high stakes fantasy football drafts with six online draft times to create the Fantasy Football Players Championship. This allows fantasy football players to draft from anywhere in the world and still compete with Las Vegas drafters in the same main event. For 2014, the FFPC Live Events will once again be held at world-famous Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. Events will take place on Wednesday through Sunday, September 3-7, 2014. Online entrants can draft from anywhere they have computer access and pay the base entry fee of $1,700 per team (early bird & multiple team discounts may apply).
The 2014 FFPC Main Event now offers a monster $300,000 Grand Prize while each league will also compete for $11,000 in individual league prizes. The entire prize pool is guaranteed. The event offers player-friendly rules, including the FFPC Dual-Flex, extended waiver wire period into the league playoffs and much more. The playoff structure allows for 4 playoff teams into the League Playoffs and give them a shot at the prizes.
The FFPC Main Event (and the Footballguys Players Championship) are the only fantasy contests with 100% protected prize pool. For the ultimate in player safety, the entire Main Event prize pool is secured in an attorney escrow account for the entire season. The attorney escrow is provided free of charge to our players, because nothing is more important that the knowledge that winners will get paid and get paid quickly. The event organizers do not access player prize money until prize checks are ready to be mailed to winners. Our guaranteed prize release date is January 20, 2015. The FFPC has issued the fastest payouts in the industry each year since 2008, with league prize checks being received by our Players in time for Christmas! League prizes will again be released in December of 2014 with all remaining prizes sent within days after the end of the fantasy season. Last but certainly not least, FFPC payout percentages will be among the highest in the high stakes industry. That’s our promise to all of our Players.
The Footballguys Players Championship is now the world’s largest mid-stakes fantasy football contest. The Terminator Tournament offers one of the most unique formats in fantasy football. The $10,000-entry High Society League has a payout of 95%. Online Satellite leagues start at just $77 and go up to $1250. Live Ancillary leagues will be drafted in Las Vegas.
