While trying to recruit for my live Premier League offline Pub Draft that ultimately I cancelled due to lack of numbers I found what I deem to be enough people showing interest in the actual game website I was planning to use - so much so am trying for an online live draft league.
The game site needs a minimum of 8 teams (and maximum of 12 teams) per league.
So I have picked a date trying to avoid clashes with any other league drafts I have seen on here already put up (for NFL) but also still have it on a weekend day to allow the best chance to work for as many people as possible.
So I propose a live draft to take place on-line Sunday 7th August - 6pm UK time
I propose this to be a £50 internal entry fee league. (So total costs will be £54.99 as the website charges you £4.99 for the season to join their web-site and have access to the league, live draft room and game for the whole season).
This may seem like a lot but if you divide it by the number of weeks of the Premier League football season I think you will find it breaks down to about £1.25 a week.
I will work out the prize money (all the £50’s go back out as prize money) once I know how many people sign up and have all paid.
So please have a good read of the rules, scoring and what have you on this website and if you like what you see and want in please post here that your in and if we get to 8 players (minimum needed) then I will set up the league and invite you all to join (so register with the website and pay their £4.99 fee plus join my league) and then once you have joined ask you to pay the £50 internal entry fee to me before the live draft itself.
So below is a list of those who sign up and when they have paid they will be moved up the list on that basis and bolded - to show they have paid.
EDIT - Entry fee to be paid before live draft - so anyone who has not paid by midnight Saturday August 6th (going into Sunday August 7th) will be deleted from the league and not be taking part. Also as this league needs an even number of teams to work should this mean an odd number of teams are left then a dummy team will be entered by the website itself - unfortunately this will reduce the prize money as this will be an un-paid for team. But the website when you read there rules explains how all this would work if needed.
