FOOTBALL SEASON IS BACK.
And this time, you can tell her it’s for a good cause.
Play in eShopedia’s Survivor Football Pool and everyone wins!
Play against parents only from your school or against parents from other schools, knowing that every week you survive puts your child’s school one step closer to winning.
All participants are also eligible for prizes from our generous sponsors.
- You must have a Yahoo! Account in order to participate. The contest is run through Yahoo’s Survivor Football interface.
- Deadline to submit your pick is Sunday 1pm EST/ 10am PST of every week. You can pick a team from the Thursday Night game, but you must make the pick 5 minutes before game kickoff. Likewise, you can pick a team from Saturday games starting in week 15 (Saturday, December 16, 2017), but you must make the pick 5 minutes before game kickoff.
- Contest begins in Week 1 and runs through playoffs.
- Pick one team each week that you think will win. You can only pick a team once for the entire duration of the season (i.e., if you pick the Denver Broncos to win in week 1, then you cannot pick the Denver Broncos again for the rest of the contest).
- To encourage participation as long into the season as possible, each player gets 2 “strikes” before they are eliminated from the Survivor pool.
- If you pick correctly, then you advance to the next week without picking up a “strike”.
- If you pick incorrectly, then you will get a “strike”. If you have one “strike”, you will advance to the next week. If you have two “strikes”, then you are eliminated.
- Survivor contest ends when there is one player left in the pool. In the event where there is more than one player left at the end of playoffs, the school prize pool and the winner’s prize pool will be divided evenly between all remaining players. Likewise, if all remaining players are eliminated on the same week, the school prize pool and the winner’s prize pool will be divided evenly between all players eliminated that week.
- eShopedia has the right to review all disputes on a case-by-case basis and will be final authority on all decisions affecting the contest with the goal being to keep it fair and fun for all.
