Hello all. I am heading up this new initiative at the JCC in Springfield, Mass and it's actually happening across the country at other JCCs and is now open to the public. Figured it would be nice to post on the Cafe and see if more people want to join. If you do, when you go in to register, you will be asked to choose a Region where you live and then a JCC that's in that area to be tied to for the Challenge. If your region is not listed, or if you don't really mid where you're affiliated with for this leage and Challenge, please feel free to check off NorthEast for region and Sprinfield JCC for the Center. Thanks. The cost is $50 per team and there are some REALLY COOL prizes (see below). If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
. This JCCs of North America Fantasy Football Challenge is now open to the public!
If you consider yourself to be a good fantasy football player, there is now a new challenge in front of you – an opportunity to take on players from across North America.
The Fantasy Football Challenge is a new concept in fantasy sports. You will have the opportunity to go head to head against people at your JCC, or in the region where you live, and also have the chance to win fantastic grand prizes, weekly prizes and league prizes. Most importantly you will have the chance to dominate your league in not one but two countries - and show everyone that you are a fantasy football master!!
We will be playing on ESPN.com and ESPN.com fantasy expert analyst Matthew Berry (the “Talented Mr. Roto”) will be the honorary commissioner of the Challenge (Matthew will host a North American webcast before the draft Tuesday night August 30th
, will tweet about the Challenge, will have a conference call with league leaders at several crucial points throughout the season, and more!).
