We’re only two months away from the 2015 World Fantasy Baseball Championship (or WFBC), the largest one-day fantasy baseball championship in the world, in which 90 fantasy players compete in a one-day league vying for the first place prize of $1 million. And today, we’re beyond excited to share that baseball and football All-Star Bo Jackson will be the host of this year’s WFBC.
The event will be held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Friday, August 21, and Saturday, August 22, 2015. For those who don’t know, we award each of the 90 participants with a Las Vegas trip package that includes airfare, transportation, a three night stay at the hotel and a minimum of $10,000.
This year, Bo Jackson will also host our first ever Home Run Derby at Las Vegas’ Big League Dreams, providing batting practice and commentary for the best daily fantasy baseball players in the world, on Friday, August 21. We’re transforming Big League Dreams into the “FanDuel Field,” where finalists will be treated like All-Stars themselves. The venue will feature a custom-built Outfield Video Wall, reminiscent of an MLB jumbotron, which will display players, their stats and will show other pre-recorded visuals. Guests will be divided into teams and the field will be split into sections, each designated for a different prize that teams will win if they hit into that area or by hitting a home run.
There’s still time to qualify and meet Bo. To find out more about WFBC and enter to attend, head to https://www.fanduel.com/wfbc.
