Win $7,000 In The 2022 NFBC Online Auction Championship

Post by Greg Ambrosius » Tue Nov 30, 2021 2:51 pm

We are happy to announce today that our second annual NFBC Online Auction Championship returns with a bigger prize pool and a bigger grand prize. That's right, after a successful debut last year, our grand prize will jump $2,000 this year to $7,000 and we will be paying the Top 16 overall.

We believe we have the very best online auction software in the industry and our NFBC players have been enjoying it for the last three years now. In 2019, we debuted with just private online auction leagues and then in 2020 we had a great start to the online auction season before we had to refund everyone and shut it down due to Covid-19. But last year we debuted the national contest and finished with 32 full leagues and 480 teams for a robust kickoff to this national contest.

Now let's kick it up another notch and really have some fun.

All leagues in the NFBC Online Auction Championship will be 15-team leagues with 23 players acquired through the auction and 7 players acquired through a serpentine draft that will be held right after the auction at 1 minute per pick. We will offer $150, $250 and $500 leagues with the same amount from each league going toward the overall prize pool. We know you'll love the online auction software and these auctions all finished in a timely fashion.

We now have more than $16,000 in guaranteed overall prizes and we are projecting an 80 percent payout for this contest. These will be 15-team, mixed auction leagues with FAAB, the same format as the Auction Championship (23 players per team, $260 with 7 man reserves) but at lower price points. A total of $450 from each league goes toward the overall prize pool.

Here's the Overall Prize Pool:

NFBC Online Auction Championship:
1st - $7,000
2nd - $1,500
3rd - $1,250
4th - $1,000

11th - $450
12th - $400
13th - $300
14th - $250
15th - $200
16th - $150

Here's the league prizes:
$150 League:
1st - $900
2nd - $300
3rd - $150

$250 League:

2nd - $700
3rd - $250

$500 League:

3rd - $550

We will still offer private $125, $250 and $500 Draft Champions Online Auctions with prizes similar to last year. But all of our FAAB Online Auction Leagues will now be part of this National Championship. Here are the league prizes again for the Draft Champions Online Auctions:

$125 DC Auction League (27 reserve rounds):
1st - $1,000
2nd - $375
3rd - $125

$250 DC Auction League:
1st - $2,000
2nd - $750
3rd - $250

$500 DC Auction League:
1st - $4,000
2nd $1,500
3rd - $500

We are excited to grow the online auction market and we think that both of these formats will grow this year and for years to come. We're excited to have another national championship, this one completely online using the auction format. Enjoy and good luck.
