Introducing the Yahoo Cup

By Daniel Haight, Product Director Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy

A little over a year ago we launched Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy, and since then our game continues to grow and evolve to give users a fair and fun place to play. Today, we’re talking about fun!  I’m happy to announce the launch of the Yahoo Cup.  

The Yahoo Cup is a season-long fantasy football contest where players can compete for their shot at over $100,000 in total prizes. There will be cash prizes every week based on the highest weekly scores and a grand prize winner will be rewarded $50,000 based on cumulative points from Week 1 through Week 16. The best part? It’s completely free to enter. The second best part? Each contest is single-entry. Just like all of our contests, you don’t have to worry about  scripting or competing against a diversified portfolio of lineups.  We’re starting off in Week 1 with $10,000 in total prizes and will be adding weekly contests through Week 16 of the regular football season. For more info on the Yahoo Cup and to find out details about the rest of the Yahoo Cup weekly contests,  please make sure to visit here each week.  

But that’s not all. Our football lobby is officially open, along with our premier contest: NFL $500K Baller. In line with our Fair Play policy which we announced back in March, this football season you’ll find no contest has more than 10 entries per user, and the majority of our contests are single-entry. You’ll easily be able to see who the highly experienced players are, and scripting is strictly prohibited on our site. Just sports fans competing against other sports fans.  

Football season is only a few weeks from kickoff. Don’t forget to sign-up for both season-long and the new Yahoo Cup!
