Around the Grounds: 9th September

AFL & NRL Finals, opening weekend of the NFL season and beating the Kiwi’s in the cricket. What a time to be alive! With so much action available we need our partners to give you a leg up on your Draftstars teams.

Firstly, how fantastic was that first week of finals in the AFL! Unlikely to be matched ever again, but we can only dream of that kind of entertainment. Before we look at the footy let’s whip around what is available this weekend.

AFLW Round 3 starts on Friday afternoon with contests available between the Bulldogs and the Dockers. We are especially enjoying AFLW on Sunday’s where you can get back-to-back action throughout the day! A reminder to get onto the & for your AFLW Draftstars stats, previews and research.

Elsewhere, hasn’t the cricket been interesting up in the top end? The Aussies have wrapped up the Chappell Hadlee Trophy, but the 3rd ODI is still available on Sunday afternoon and Draftstars contests will be available.

The EPL for now, continues this weekend but we will keep an eye out on developments out of Britain. If games do proceed then check out the Saturday and Sunday Night action on Draftstars.

We mentioned about this MLB 220 Target Jackpot last week but now we need to start talking about it more seriously! Already $40,000+ in the pool and with some near hits over the past week! $1 entry to have a shot in taking it down, can you hit the 220? Plus, the F1’s return for the third week in a row with the Italian GP on Sunday night. Head to the lobby now for all the action.

But it is a triple delight on the menu starting with the second week of the AFL Finals. Attention now turns to the two massive Semi Finals between the Demons and the Lions on Friday and the Pies and Dockers on Saturday. Here at Draftstars we are headlining our Daily Fantasy contests with mega $90,000+ prize pools along with different prize entry contests that are available for all budgets.
