FantasyDraft.com, a DFS operator that has put an emphasis on forging partnerships with professional athletes from a variety of sports since its inception, is currently in the midst of awarding another three VIP Player Experiences to its users.
Drew Brees and Jeremy Roenick Experiences on Tap for Lucky Winners
The site has recently run contests for a chance to meet New Orleans Saints quarterback and multi-time Pro Bowler Drew Brees and NHL legend Jeremy Roenick. Still forthcoming is a tournament that will award a meet and greet opportunity with San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker, with that contest taking place Friday, November 4th.
The Drew Brees Experience grand prize winner received hotel and airfare for two to New Orleans, a $100 transportation credit, two Club Level tickets to the November 13th game between the Denver Broncos and the Saints, and a meet and greet with Brees the following day at the Saints’ practice facility. Other top 10 finishers received a football or Saints mini-helmet signed by Brees, or a FantasyDraft t-shirt.
The Jeremy Roenick Experience winner was just crowned on Saturday, October 29th in a 1905-entrant GPP that was based on the nine NHL games that evening. In addition to receiving a $500.00 payout, the grand prize winner, along with a guest, are heading to San Diego, California to play a round of golf with Roenick at his home course in Del Mar on Saturday, December 17th and enjoying lunch or dinner afterwards with him afterwards. They also receive airfare and hotel accommodations for two, along with a $100 transportation credit.
Tony Parker Experience Forthcoming, $7,500 Value
Players who enter FantasyDraft’s $25 Pick and Roll NBA-themed GPP through Thursday, November 3rd qualify for a free ticket into the official Tony Parker Experience Contest, which unfolds on Friday, November 4th. That contest has a $5.00 direct buy-in, features 4,597 entrants and a $20,000 prize pool, and allows each player to put in up to 50 entries.
The top two finishers win the VIP Experience, which, as per FantasyDraft’s site, carries a $7,500 value. It includes two lower level tickets to the Detroit Pistons-Spurs game on Friday, November 11th, a meet and greet with Parker following the game, airfare for two, a $100 transportation credit, and hotel accommodations in San Antonio.
Multiple VIP Experiences Previously Awarded
Charlotte, North Carolina-based FantasyDraft, which officially launched in December 2014, inked partnership deals with several athletes even before their debut. Former NFL standouts London Fletcher and Shannon Sharpe were announced as having come on board in November 2014, and current luminaries T.Y. Hilton, Andy Dalton and Jordy Nelson became part of the FantasyDraft athlete “roster” that same month.
Subsequent prominent sports figures associated with the site include the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw, the Cavaliers’ Kevin Love, former Hurricanes, Cowboys and Dolphins head coach and current NFL on Fox personality Jimmy Johnson and former NFL quarterback and current NFL studio personality and color commentator Boomer Esiason. A number of past VIP Experiences similar to the ones currently being offered have involved these athletes.
