Qualification for the FBWC
You can not enter the 2017 FBWC directly. Instead, you must earn your place at the FBWC by entering satellites or qualifiers. The contests are designed to give all types of players a chance to participate in this popular event. Satellites start at just $3 while qualifiers are avaiable starting at $33. Satellites, which are much more plentiful, feed into DraftKings qualifiers. Each qualifier will send one person to the FBWC.
Players may qualify up to 5 times through August 18th. Qualifying multiple times will allow you enter more than one lineup to the event.
