  • All rules may be modified at any time at the sole discretion of FireLeague.

Unfilled Contests

  • All contests that are completed on Fireleague have a predetermined prize pool and number of entrants.
  • Some structured contests require a specified number of participants. If that number of participants is not reached before the start of the contest, the contest will not take place and your entrance fee will be refunded.

Cancelling Entries

  • You may cancel your entry for any contest that is unfilled.
  • Once a league is filled the contest is considered locked and you may not cancel your entry into the contest.
  • Fireleague has no obligation to honor cancellation requests that are not received, or which are received after a league has been locked.

  • You MUST submit a full lineup before the last game of the week begins in order to receive points for the week.

In the event that this should take place more than 2 hours after the weekly contest has ended the player scores on Fireleague will not be updated and the prize settlements will not be revised.



Judging
Judging to determine the winners will be conducted by FireLeague or its designee(s). Winners will be determined by the points earned by each entrant through play in a FireLeague contest. A tie will first be broken by the overall value of the tied players' fantasy teams. Any subsequent ties will be broken at random in the sole discretion of FireLeague or its designee(s). Play in a FireLeague contest usually consists of drafting and managing a fantasy football team, as described in detail on the Site's help and/or technical support section, as may be changed by FireLeague from time to time. Prizes will be awarded to the number of eligible entrants who have earned the most points out of all other eligible entrants by the contest End Date per the schedules shown for the respective contests above. FireLeague will be the sole inspector and final arbiter of all contest determinants, including, but not limited to number of entrants and number of points earned, and will use internal software and internal analysis to determine the number of points earned by each entrant. In addition, FireLeague may from time to time choose to conduct, and award other prizes in connection with, interim contests. By way of example, this could include the awarding of prizes for entrants who earn the most points in a certain week or month, or who improve the most from one month to the next with respect to points earned. FireLeague will elect whether or not to conduct interim contests in its sole discretion, and such interim contests and prizes are not guaranteed.

Odds of Winning
The odds of winning in any FireLeague contest depend on your skill in drafting and managing a FireLeague fantasy football team and in predicting the relative performance of athletes and on the number of participants. In addition, the odds of winning depend on how late you enter any contest, since later entrants have less total time in which to accumulate points relative to entrants who entered earlier.

Contest settlement and payout

  • All contest prizes are paid out electronically to your FireLeague account.
  • All contests are settled the day after the final game the week is played. For example After the Monday games are complete the contest for the week is settled and payments are issued to your FireLeague account by the close of business on Tuesday.
  • All tax reporting responsibilities related to contest winnings are the sole responsibility of the participant (you).
