Around the Grounds: July 8th

We are back with another edition of Around the Grounds! With State of Origin around the corner the byes are back in the NRL but the AFL is full steam ahead. 1 match per day will have to do but that still means plenty of action on Draftstars.

Before we get stuck into what our partners are contributing for this weekend, a reminder that the MLB continues daily on Draftstars with contests to suit all budgets. Golf action is heating up with the PGA over in Scotland for the Scottish Open. Look out for daily contests plus our mega contest for The Open next week! Also keep an eye out on Sunday for the Austrian Grand Prix from the Red Bull ring. Our Rapidfire contests for the race have been very popular so look out for the matchups on Sunday.

Round 17 of the AFL is already underway but the focus of Friday Night is at the SCG for the pivotal match between the Swans and the Bulldogs. Here at Draftstars we are headlining our Daily Fantasy contests with a mega $75,000+ prize pool. Our $500,000 AFL Live Final qualifiers are available for this match plus plenty of contests at all prize points. There are still plenty of chances to make to the big event! Don’t miss out!
