COVID-19 EVENT RULES AND REGULATIONS
In order to help ensure the safety and health of all our guests while in Charlotte, DraftKings expects all guests in attendance at the FBWC to adhere to, among other things, the following Health and Safety Protocol:
• All guests are asked to limit activity to only DraftKings events.
• All guests are required to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth while participating in DraftKings sponsored events with masks only being removed while eating or drinking. DraftKings will have masks available to any guest who needs one.
• All guests should maintain six (6) feet of social distancing where possible.
• All guests should avoid small, enclosed spaces where social distancing cannot be maintained.
• All guests should wash hands regularly. When hand washing is not available, guests should utilize the hand-sanitization stations placed throughout the venue.
• All guests are expected to follow signage and guidance on use of spaces at DraftKings events.
• All guests are expected to comply with applicable restrictions and guidelines from the North Carolina Department of Health, Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte.
If one or more DraftKings players tie in a Qualifier, in which the tie determines who wins the “ticket” to the FBWC, there will be a tiebreaker playoff contest between the tied DraftKings Players, to determine the Qualifier Winner. DraftKings will determine the timing and structure of the tiebreaker playoff contest in DraftKings’ sole and absolute discretion.
FBWC FINAL TIEBREAKERS
In the event of a tie for any position in the FBWC Final Contest, DraftKings’ standard tiebreaker rules apply.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES
A DraftKings player may only win a maximum of five (5) entries to the FBWC Contest. If a player chooses to play in additional FBWC qualifier contests after the player has won five entries to FBWC and happens to win an additional qualifier, the player will receive $0 for the player’s additional entry and the ticket will be awarded to second place. If a player wins multiple qualifier contests that were live at the time the player wins a fifth entry to the FBWC, the player will receive the cash value of the additional tickets won ($50,000 per ticket). DraftKings may rerun additional qualifiers.
