After the success of the 2019 AFL Draftstars Live Finals and the long awaited anticipation after the COVID cancellation in 2020, Daily Fantasy Rankings and Draftstars are pleased to announce that the 2021 AFL edition is back!


With a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000! Draftstars we crown another belt winning champion on the 15th of August. With qualifying contests commencing in Round 7 of the AFL season on April the 29th. As in 2019, a series of qualifiers in a range of contests and price points will be available in the AFL but also other sports including Golf, NBA and NRL. 


The Draftstars AFL Live Final will be held on Sunday August 15th, 2021. Although we do not know what the AFL game as of yet (due to the flexible scheduling from the AFL) it is likely the late Sunday game will be the WA derby in Perth.


Draftstars have announced the prize pool will be a massive $300,000 which is an increase from the prize pools from 2019. The prize pool structure will again be a little top heavy but the top ten players will all be receiving significant chunks of the prize pool. Everyone will go home with some prize money, but the top ten will be guaranteed at least $5,000. Reaching the top five is worth $10,000+, while our champion will take home an enormous $100,000 first place prize!



But winning the Draftstars AFL Live Final is about more than just money. It’s the bragging rights that come with winning one of the biggest single prizes in Australian Daily Fantasy Sports history, and perhaps more importantly, taking home the coveted Draftstars Championship belt!



So how do you get amongst the action? Well, once again tickets to this event will be strictly limited with just 155 tickets available. The Qualifiers will run every day of every AFL round in the lead up to the big event, with entry starting as low as just $2. So winning a seat into the Live Final is a possibility for players of all budgets. Qualifiers do not overfill so make you reserve your entry if you wish to participate early. 


Once again Daily Fantasy Rankings will be on board as a media partner for the Draftstars AFL Live Final. We’ll be interviewing winners throughout the season and bringing comprehensive coverage of the event on the night. We can’t wait!
