CoachKings Contest

A CoachKings contest is an event held over an individual football (AFL/NRL) match. The contest is run within the rules stated on the website and begins from the first bounce or kick off of each respective match and finishes at the final siren of each match. The contest is deemed complete once the final scores are finalised and the “Game Over” indicator appears on the website. Winning players are eligible to collect venue prizes (supplied at the venues discretion) at the completion of the contest and will have qualified into their Venue Final. The result of an individual contest will have no bearing on other contests. All winners are deemed as final as per website scoreboards at the completion of the contest.

Ineligibility of CoachKings/Full House Group Employees

Full House Group employees as well as CoachKings employees and contractors are ineligible to play and win prizes in CoachKings contests. This includes weekly contests and Quarter Finals.

Venue Prizes

Venues may offer prizes for top performers at their weekly competitions or at their Quarter Final. These prizes are provided at the Venues discretion. A Venue may choose to allocate prizes for Half Time Leader, Full Time Leader, Quarter Final Winner and Highest Weekly or for one of/ or a combination of those Prizes. These prizes will be distributed by the venue and it is the Players responsibility to see Venue staff to claim any Prizes they may have won.

CoachKings Quarter Finals

The top 3 individual Players from any contest at each Venue qualify for the next CoachKings $10K quarter final. Each Player can have up to 5 entries into each $10K Quarter Final.
