2022 NFBC Live Events Signup List -- Updated Here

Post by Greg Ambrosius » Thu Nov 04, 2021 9:55 am

Welcome to the 2022 NFBC season -- our 19th season of live and online season-long fantasy baseball drafts!! Time flies when you're having fun.

It's hard to believe, but it's been 19 years since we first announced the NFBC, the industry's first high-stakes fantasy baseball contest. I remember making this announcement at the 2003 Arizona Fall League Symposium and then launching the site in November with the great help of STATS INC. We finished that debut 2004 season with 324 total teams and last year we finished with over 20,000 teams. We are moving in the right direction and we believe that 2022 will be another record year for the NFBC.

In Super Bowl terms, this is NFBC XIX. I like it. Let's make this the best season ever.

Registration for the 2022 NFBC season is now live!! We launched the new season this morning, just a day after the end of the World Series and after paying our NFBC Post-Season Contest winners. The web site and all of the Rules and Prize Grids are on the contest pages, so check them out here:

https://nfc.shgn.com/gamestyles/baseball

NFBC players are already drafting in our online draft room and having fun. The software allows you to set queues for every single round and to determine how many rounds you'd like to be put on auto-pick from your queue. Please learn to use that software as it will quicken most online drafts. Enjoy everyone and best of luck in the hunt for the more than $4 million in prizes we'll award again this season.

We are hopeful that more people will be able to join us at the live events this year as the country gets a stronger handle on Covid, and as a result, we will once again host live drafts and auctions in New York and Chicago on the weekend of March 18-20 and live drafts and auctions in Las Vegas at the Bellagio from March 24th through March 30th. We can't wait to see everyone once again and we hope that every city has record attendance.

This year's grand prize in the Main Event has been increased $25,000 to $175,000 with overall prizes now reaching the Top 20 overall. The top league prize in the Main Event is again $7,000. The grand prize in the Rotowire Online Championship has also increased by $25,000 and is now at a record $150,000 with even more money in the overall prize pool, while the NFBC Cutline Championship is again giving away a $75,000 grand prize as we're bullish on that Best Ball contest.

Now let's get drafting. We've created our official Signup List of Live Events for 2022 right here and we will update it every day as new signups come in. We provide this as transparency for all of our events so that you can see where the demand lies and so that you know which sharks are swimming in each pool!! :D No NFBC contest is going to be easy, but it's always nice to see who is teeing it up with you, right? :D

There is also a real-time Contest Signups list that you can break down by individual contests here: https://nfc.shgn.com/contestsignups/baseball

So let's begin. Let's start, however, by congratulating last year's incredible champions in each of our national contests. Philippe Dussault is our defending NFBC Main Event champion and the winner of last year's $150,000 grand prize. Philippe had a record-breaking season in 2021 as he won a total of $324,000, while winning the Main Event and the NFBC Auction Championship, while finishing second in the Rotowire Online Championship. Nobody has ever done that before. Nice job Champ. Philippe now joins our other past NFBC Main Event champions such as Artie Rastelli, Brian Oldenski, David DiDonato, Terry Haney, Bobby Jurney, Lindy Hinkelman (twice), Dave Potts, Steve Jupinka, Ken Norred/Dan Semsel, Greg & Dale Morgan, Glenn Schroter, Rob Silver, Chris Fessler, John Pausma, Abdul Madani and James Tomony. That's an All-Star lineup of owners if I've ever seen one.

While Philippe had a fantastic season, he wasn't alone. Chris Fessler won the $125,000 grand prize in the Rotowire Sprint Online Championship as he defeated 2,388 teams to win that contest. Chris is a former NFBC Main Event champion, so this second national title really adds to his resume. Also, kudos to Bob Catsiroumpas for winning the $75,000 grand prize in the NFBC Cutline Championship as this is the second time that he's won that title. Also, congrats to Thomas Olownia for winning the 2021 NFBC Draft Champions National Championship and that $30,000 grand prize. And finally, Zachary Waxman won our debut NFBC Online Auction Championship, a format that we know will continue to grow in years to come. Those are our great national champions from 2021.

Now who is going to win the top prizes in 2022? Let's find out.

It's time to officially kick off our 2022 NFBC Season with this Signup List of Live Events and all High-Stakes events. We will update this list with every signup that comes in. Remember that we won't charge for any of these Live Events until Feb. 15th if you agree to pay by check or credit card and no down payment is needed. Just sign up now to secure your spot in any of these events and pay on Feb. 15th. Every signup after Feb. 15th will be charged as they come in. If you do sign up for events using Money on your Player Account, those will be deducted right away. Keep an eye on all events and SIGN UP NOW so that you're not left behind. There's too much prize money on the line to be left out. Thanks all.

Here's the list to date, which will be updated every time a new signup comes here. Thanks all and good luck:

SOLD OUT: The NFBC Platinum League is now sold out as all 15 members from 2021 have returned. We are close to selling out the Diamond League as well with the same scenario. If we do fill that one with all 15 returning members, we will look at adding one more high-dollar league at that price point to allow others a shot at this price point. Stay tuned.

Thanks all and I can't wait for late March to get here.

SOLD OUT: Now the NFBC Diamond League is sold out as all 15 owners are returning from 2021. That's great, but it's time to create a new NFBC Diamond League so that others can also compete for a $75,000 league prize. Look for those details to come soon.

Thanks everyone and I can't wait for late March to get here.

I have opened it back up for a second league at 10 am. I was hoping to fill Thursday and Friday 4 pm auction leagues first, but I'm hopeful those will fill and maybe we'll get a second one at this time. Here we go.

Just a heads up that we've filled one Main Event league in Las Vegas on Thursday, March 24th at 4 pm PT, but we're shooting for at least two leagues at that time. We will mix all 30 owners into two leagues a week before that date, so sign up now knowing that we still have work to do in Las Vegas for that night.

We're also closing in on three leagues on Saturday, March 26th at 11 am PT. We have plans and room for seven leagues again this year, so keep 'em coming and let's have some fun at the Bellagio March 24-27. Thanks all and I'll keep updating these lists as signups come in.
