Owned by next generation entertainment and technology group PlayUp, Australia’s #1 Daily Fantasy Sports (“DFS”) platform, Draftstars’ long awaited virtual AFL Live Final event kicks off this Sunday.

Throughout 2021, Draftstars players have entered online challenges to win “Golden Tickets” to the final for a chance at a share of the $300K, Australia’s largest ever DFS cash prize pool.

In 2021, 155 Golden Tickets to the AFL Live Final event were on offer throughout the season, with some players claiming more than one Golden Ticket each. The largest contest by far was the Richmond v Western Bulldogs blockbuster in Round 7, with over 1250 contestants vying for the Golden Ticket.

Qualification events were run over a variety of sports including AFL, NRL, PGA golf and NBA, with buy in ranging from $2 to $50.

With all Golden Tickets now awarded and winners coming from Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania and even New Zealand, the AFL Live Final will be held as a virtual event due to COVID restrictions. The event will be extremely interactive and include interviews with former winners, Q&As from viewers and live reactions from the players themselves.

The winner of the virtual AFL Live Final event will walk away with $100K cash.

Players and spectators can watch all the action live on Sunday by heading to draftstars.com.au and following the prompts.
