Ever thought which nation is collectively the best in the world at Daily Fantasy Sports? Well think no more! In a brand new concept DraftKings, the worldwide leader in Daily Fantasy Sports, presents the DraftKings 2020 World Cup!   


10 teams from across the world will compete to become the number 1 nation in a series of Daily Fantasy contests and of course Team Australia is back! Your chance to represent Australia is still available! Read on how to enter qualifiers to make the team! 


Tournament Format


Each team will consist of 10 players and these 100 players will enter 6 total events in Week 1 of the tournament. If you get 1st, you get 100 points for your country. If you get last, you get 1 point for your country. 2nd place would get 99 points, 3rd place 98 points, and so on.


There will be “Premiere Events” where points count as double (first place receives 200, last place receives 2 points). 


After Week 1, the 4 teams with the highest amount of total points advance to Week 2. The lowest 6 teams are eliminated. Points will reset to zero for those 4 teams after Week 1.


At the conclusion of Week 2, DraftKings will add up all points accumulated for your country and all team members split the prizes! But the glory to say that your nation is the best for 2020!
