We will endeavour to give you prior written notice of any material changes.

3. Entry is open to Australian residents and non-Australian residents over the age of 18, including residents of New Zealand, except where prohibited. Notwithstanding the foregoing, only Australian and New Zealand residents (who are residents at the time of joining and creating an account in the Tournament) are eligible to win any prizes, excluding the directors, contractors, managers and employees (and their immediate family) of the Promoter and agencies (including sponsors) associated with this Promotion. Immediate family means any of the following: spouse, ex-spouse, de-facto spouse, child or step-child (whether natural or by adoption), parent, step-parent, grandparent, step-grandparent, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, brother, sister, step-brother, step-sister or 1st cousin. All Participants and Tournament winners consent to the publication of their name, suburb and state of residence, and agree to participate in reasonable promotional activities as requested by the Promoter from time to time. The Promoter reserves the right to limit the number of participants in the Tournament at any time for any reason.

 

4. To enter, the Participant must firstly register by completing the online registration process at the Website during the Promotion Period. Participants will be required to (a) choose a nickname/alias to identify their entry; (b) submit the name of their favourite AFL team; and (c) subject to any “Salary Cap Limitations” as detailed on the Website, submit a complete AFL team of 30 players (“Chosen Team”) comprising the following positions:

8 x Defenders

11 x Midfielders

3 x Rucks

8 x Forwards

 

5. Only one registration per Participant (and per email address) may be submitted. Under no circumstances can participants enter two or more registrations or team entries. Any participants found to do so will be disqualified from the promotion and eligibility to win prizes, solely at the Promoter’s discretion. By registering, the Participant agrees to subscribe (or has already subscribed) to receive periodical results and/or reminder emails about the Tournament, notification of new Tournaments, and other similar, related newsletters by the Promoter from time to time. The Participant may choose to opt-out of any such newsletters at any time.

 

6. If invited to enter a particular league, Participants may enter their details to join that league during the registration process. Alternatively they can create up to ten private or public leagues and invite others to join. If they do not select a league, Participants will automatically be entered into a public league. Subject to a Participant’s eligibility to win a prize, that eligibility will not be affected by whether they join a public league or private league. Rankings as displayed on the Website include the rankings of all Participants, and not only the rankings of Participants that are eligible to win a prize, and therefore should not be relied upon as indication of who will a prize.

 

7. During registration Participants may refer the promotion to their friends via email using the refer-a-friend facility on the Website. If a Participant refers a friend, they warrant that their friend is over the age of 18 and they have obtained their friend’s consent to do so prior to sending the email. The Participant indemnifies the Promoter against any claims by any third party for the Participant’s failure to do so.

Participants may replace players in their Chosen Team via the “Trade Page” on the Website, in accordance with any directions. Participants may make a maximum of 30 player trades for the season, with a maximum of 2 trades in any given Round (and up to 3 trades in Rounds 12, 13 and 14). Player trades must take place prior to the commencement of a particular Round to be eligible to be selected for that Round, and are subject to any Salary Cap Limitations as detailed on the Website. Players traded during the season do not get their aggregate points added or subtracted to the Participant’s total. For sake of clarity, if the player is removed from, or added to the Chosen Team, only the points earned by that player for that Participant, prior to their removal or after their addition from the Chosen Team, in accordance with these Rules, count towards the Participant’s total.

 

8. After registration, Participants may enter all remaining Rounds that have not been locked out or completed. Subject to clause 9, to enter a particular Round, the Participant must prior to the lockout period for that Round (as notified on the Website), submit their “Round Team” comprising of 22 “Starting Players” from their Chosen Team in the following positions:

6 x Defenders

8 x Midfielders

2 x Rucks

6 x Forwards

Participants may select up to 4 “Emergency” players from their remaining 8 bench players. Emergency Players will not score points unless they replace a Starting Player. If necessary, an Emergency Player will be added to the Active Players in the same selected position as the Active Player who is being replaced, based on the scoring system provided in clause 10. Emergency Player scores are only added if an Active Player in the same position doesn’t score any points due to not taking part in a real match. Where there are two Emergency Players selected in a position and only one is required, the lowest scoring of the two will be used. Participants may select a “Team Captain” who will score double points, and select a “Vice Captain” who will score double points in the event that the Team Captain does not play in the particular Round and receives a score of 0.

In Rounds 12, 13 and 14, a Participant’s score for the Round will only be based on the scores of the 18 highest scoring players of their selected starting 22 players (including any emergencies which replace those players). Participants will still be required to select 22 starting players in Rounds 12, 13 and 14, and if there are more than 18 scoring payers in their selected 22 players, only the scores of the top 18 scoring players be used to calculate the Participant’s score for that Round.

 

9. If, after participating in a Round, a Participant does not amend their Round Team, their Round Team from the previous Round as selected by the Participant will be used, regardless of whether or not those players will be playing in the coming Round.

 

10. Participants will score points based upon the performance of their selected players in their Round Team for the particular Round. Points will be awarded (or subtracted) for each performance statistic attributed to that player during the Round by Champion Data Holdings Pty Ltd (ACN 090641553) as follows:

11. The Promoter’s decisions in relation to all aspects of this Promotion are final and no correspondence will entered into, including decisions in relation to the number of points that a Participant may have earned.

 

12. Rankings of Participants from the last Round completed and cumulative rankings for all completed rounds will appear on the Website as per clause 14 below. Rankings on the Website may not give a true indication of the eventual winner of a prize.

 

13. Prizes

Prizes will only be awarded to Participants who are eligible to win a prize in accordance with clause 3, in the form of a direct bank transfer or cheque. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined in accordance with clause 13(e) below.

 

a. Round Prize Winners:

The participant who scores the highest number of points from each individual round will win $100 (total Round prize value: $2,300). Round Prize winners will be determined by the Promoter at G06/838 Collins Street, Docklands VIC 3008, at 12:00PM AEST on the day after completion of each round of the AFL football season during the Promotion Period. Participants are only entitled to win the Round Prize once during the promotion. Where a Participant whose eligible team entry has earned the highest number of points for that Round has previously won the Round Prize, the prize will be awarded to the participant whose eligible team entry earned the next highest number of points in that Round and who has not been a previous Round Prize winner.

 

b. Overall Prize Winners:

The participant with the highest accumulated number of points at the end of the AFL regular season will win $5,000. The participant who scores the second highest accumulated number of points at the end of the AFL regular season will win $250. Participants ranked from 3rd to 10th in highest accumulated number of points at the end of the AFL regular season will each win $100 (total Overall Prize value: $6,050). The Overall prize winners will be determined by the Promoter at G06/838 Collins Street, Docklands VIC 3008 at 12:00PM AEST on 29.08.2018.

 

c. Top League Prize Winners:

Only leagues of exactly 18 teams entered in the promotion will be eligible to win the Top League Prize. The scores of the 18 participants in each League will be combined and the League with the highest combined score at the end of the Promotion will win $1,800 to be divided equally among the participants. The Top League prize winners will be determined by the Promoter at G06/838 Collins Street, Docklands VIC 3008 at 12:00PM AEST on 29.08.2018.

 

d. Eliminator Winner:

The top-ranked 16,384 Participants based on their Round score at the completion of round 6 of the 2018 AFL season who complete an eligible entry in accordance with these Rules, will be eligible to compete in the Eliminator Tournament for the Eliminator Major Prize, commencing in Round 7 of the 2018 AFL season and concluding in Round 23, but excluding rounds 12, 13 and 14.

The Eliminator Tournament will be conducted as follows:

  1. each Eliminator Eligible Participant will receive a ranking (“Eliminator Ranking”) based on their Team’s Round 6 score at the completion of Round 6, with the highest accumulated score ranked number 1, to the lowest score ranked 16,384;
  2. each Eliminator Eligible Participant in the top 8,192 Eliminator Rankings will be randomly matched up against another Eliminator Eligible Participant in the next 8,192 Eliminator Rankings;
  3. in Round 7, Eliminator Eligible Participants will participate in the Game “head-to-head”, with the Eliminator Eligible Participant that scores the most points for that Round, progressing to the next Round to be matched against another winning Eliminator Eligible Participant for the next Round. In the event that there is a tie between the two Eliminator Eligible Participants, the Eliminator Eligible Participant with the highest Eliminator Ranking will progress to the next Round. Losing Eliminator Eligible Participants will be eliminated from the Eliminator Tournament;
  4. the same process as set out in (iii) above will be repeated for each of the remaining Rounds (excluding Rounds 12, 13 and 14, when the Eliminator Tournament is suspended), until there are only two Eliminator Eligible Participants remaining in Round 23;
  5. out of the two Eliminator Eligible Participants left in Round 23, the Eliminator Eligible Participant that scores the most points for that Round will receive from the Promoter the Eliminator Prize.

In the event that there are fewer than the required number of Eligible Eliminator Participants, Eligible Eliminator Participants who are not matched up against another Eligible Eliminator Participant (based on achieving the highest Eliminator Ranking) in Round 6 will have a “bye” for that Round and will automatically progress to the next Round.

The overall Eliminator winner at the conclusion of Round 23 will win $250. The Eliminator prize winner will be determined by the Promoter at G06/838 Collins Street, Docklands VIC 3008 at 12:00PM AEST on 29.08.2018.

 

e. Tie Breaking

If there is more than one Participant with the equal highest number of points for the Overall Prizes or a Round prize, the relevant prize will be divided and distributed equally amongst all of the Participants with the tied score. For avoidance of doubt, if there are three Participants tied in second place for the Overall Prize, each of the Participants receives a share of the total prize pool from the prize awarded for Second, Third and Fourth place, divided equally in three. The next participant would be ranked in Fifth and so on.

If in determining the Best Performing League Prize winners there is a tied result, the prize will be awarded to the tied Leagues that made the least trades during Round 23, calculated by adding the number of trades made by each participant in the tied Leagues. In the event of a further tie, the prize will be divided and distributed equally amongst all tied Leagues.

In the event that there is a tie between the final two Eliminator Eligible Participants, the Eliminator Eligible Participant with the highest Eliminator Ranking at Round 23 will be determined the winner. If this is tied, the prize will be divided and distributed equally between the final two Eliminator Eligible Participants.

 

f. Unclaimed Prizes

If the Major Prizes are not claimed within 3 months from the Promotion period close date, the Participant who had the second highest score over the duration of the Promotion Period will receive that prize. If a weekly prize is not claimed within three months of the completion of the relevant round, the Participant who had the second highest score for that Round will receive that prize. If the Eliminator Prize is not claimed within 3 months from the Promotion period close date, the Eliminator Participant who was matched against the Eliminator Prize Winner in Round 23 will be the winner. The winners, if any, will be contacted by email and phone within 2 business days of being determined and published on the Web Site on 29.11.2018 for 28 days.

 

g. Publication of Winners’ Details

Each weekly prize winner will be notified by email within 2 business days of being determined, using the details provided in their entry, and the name and state of residence of the weekly prize winner will be published on the Web Site on the next Tuesday following the completion of the round for 28 days.

The Overall Prize winners, League Prize Winners and Eliminator Winner will be notified by email, using the details provided in their entry.

Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights.

17. Total prize pool value is $10,400, including GST.

19. Any cost associated with accessing the promotional website is the Participant’s responsibility and is dependent on the Internet service provider used.
