Around the Grounds: 23rd of September

That last Saturday in September has arrived! The Cats and Swans battle it out for the 2022 Premiership Flag but for Draftstars players, the battle for our record breaking $250,000 prize pool is on in earnest! It is a huge weekend for Draftstars action so let’s look to our partners to give you a leg up on your Draftstars teams.

Before we dive into the big dance there is still plenty of action around the site.

First of all, AFLW Round 5 is already underway with contests available throughout Friday, a sneaky game on Saturday morning and the recovery slate on Sunday. A reminder to get onto the & for your AFLW Draftstars stats, previews and research.

With two weeks in the regular MLB season remaining The Big 220 (at the time of publication) is still alive! Already $64,000+ in the pool and some near misses are making this the talk of the town. $1 entry to have a shot in reaching the target, can you hit the 220? We believe it is going to go off any day now!

But it is a huge week of finals football starting with the AFL Grand Final. Let’s not muck around here, we are headlining our Daily Fantasy contests with a mega $250,000+ prize pools along with different prize entry contests that are available for all budgets. The $250,000 prize pool is largest ever for a sitewide available contest to enter.
