ESPN Prize Eligible Leagues

Postby Bajecco » Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:44 am

I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but my topic seems to fit.

Does anyone have experience with the ESPN premium leagues? I participated this year as did my private league. I took 1st place in one league and 2nd in another (both roto). According to the ESPN rules I've qualified for prizes in both leagues as did the two gentleman who took 1st & 2nd place in our private prize eligible league.

Does ESPN notify the winners regarding what they've won? How long does it take for them to acknowledge what the winners have won? Has anyone here at the Cafe ever won any prizes from ESPN fantasy products?

I was surprised when no notification or acknowledgment was sent to me.

Thanks.

The season just ended yesterday. You might give them a chance. I am sure if you check on the ESPN site they will have the answers you want.

After doing some research (better late than never) I think I've figured this out.

I paid $50 for 3 teams. For my $50 I get a chance to win either a $2000 Best Buy gift card (1st place) or a $1000 gift card (2nd place).

This is hard to accomplish because ESPN put's you up against their entire fantasy baseball community.

I won 1 roto league, 1 H to H league and placed 2nd in another roto league. These were all premium leagues.

What to I get for my efforts? Points (100 pts per championship) towards their prestigious "Winners Circle" rewards gallery. If I win 63 more leagues I can get a 32 inch TV!!!!!

So. Basically I'm paying $50 for nothing unless by some miracle my one of my teams achieves a higher adjusted score than any other team in the ESPN fantasy baseball universe.

Wow. ESPN is making bank of of their fantasy baseball premium products.
