FanDuel Rolls Out Special Fantasy Football Contest To Benefit Veterans

Written By Grant Lucas on November 7, 2018

Sunday is for the NFL. This Sunday is for football and veterans.

And to celebrate Veterans DayFanDuel is rolling out its “Duel for a Difference” fantasy football contest.

In a benefit for Operation Supply Drop, FanDuel’s contest ties its flagship product with Veterans Day recognition.

Duel for a Difference with FanDuel

The mission statement, if you will, of the contest is simple. From FanDuel’s website:

“Support our troops by playing fantasy football.”

On Nov. 11, every $3 entry fee will go toward Operation Supply Drop, a nonprofit organization that “delivers morale-boosting supplies to deployed service members and military hospitals around the globe.”

Fantasy football players will not only be contributing to the cause, but they will also have the opportunity to cash in on a variety of prizes.

Winning the ‘ultimate tailgate package’

There’s no special format for the contest. Everything, it appears, remains straightforward.

Though, in a way, two first-place prizes exist.

The winner of the fantasy football contest receives what FanDuel calls “the ultimate tailgate package” valued at $1,300. Included:

  • Two tickets to an NFL game of your choice
  • YETI Tundra 65 cooler
  • YETI Hopper Flip 18 cooler bag
  • YETI Sidekick Dry
  • YETI 26 oz Rambler
  • 4 YETI 20 oz Ramblers
  • 2 YETI Custom Camo Hats
  • Custom OSD 10×10 Pop Up Tailgate Tent

What are FanDuel Points?

Players who finish in the top 50 of the contest will earn FanDuel Points, while top contributors will do the same.

FanDuel Points are credits players can use to enter real-money contests. Every 2,400 FanDuel Points earned can be used as $1 toward any entry fee.

In any contest, FanDuel Points are accumulated every time players spend $1 in entry fees. At times, FanDuel will offer special promotions for point bonuses.

Win also by creating more entries

In addition to vying for first place, players have the opportunity to earn Operation Supply Drop swag as well as NFL memorabilia by entering additional lineups.

How? By simply adding more entries.

From FanDuel’s site: “We are rewarding our players for making bigger contributions to this great cause.”

Players can earn FanDuel Points by having between five and 14 entries. Players with 15 to 49 entries will receive an Operation Supply Drop T-shirt, a sticker and 12,000 FanDuel Points. Those with 50 0r more entries will earn autographed NFL memorabilia, an Operation Supply Drop T-Shirt and sticker, and 12,000 FanDuel Points.

When all is said in done, the player with the most entries will win a “YETI tailgating kit” that includes:

  • YETI Tundra 65 cooler
  • YETI Hopper Flip 18 cooler bag
  • YETI Sidekick Dry
  • YETI Rambler 26 oz
  • 4 YETI 20 oz Ramblers
  • 2 YETI Custom Camo Hats
