Football is one of the most popular and most watched sporting events in the country. Our Pro Pigskin Pick’em Contest provides an excellent opportunity to increase online advertising revenue. The contest runs from the beginning of the regular pro football season, and includes the wild card games, playoffs, conference championships, and the championship game; approximately 22 weeks (5 months). Our preseason warm-up starts in the middle of August (the second half of preseason). This gives players a chance to get registered early for the contest and win additional preseason weekly prizes, if you decide to do so. Preseason runs approximately 2 weeks.

The Pro Pigskin Pick’em Contest challenges players every week to successfully select the winners of each professional football game. Players can measure their success against other contestants while competing for great prizes. Contestants also have access to team schedules, team standings, interesting stats, viewer polls, Buddy Tracker (Allows contestants to track the scores of friends playing the contest, along with their scores, to see how they stack up against one another), and Buddy Groups (Allows contestants to start their own private group for friends, family, co-workers, etc. Once a buddy group is started, contestants can invite other players, setup group rules, and use group messaging within the contest).
The contest is designed to keep scores for each week of play as well as the full season. The structure of the prize giveaway is extremely flexible. Some examples are:
- 1 weekly winner, 1 season grand prize winner
- 1 weekly winner, 1 season grand prize winner, next 2 top season scores
- 1 weekly winner, drawing from weekly winners for grand prize
We supply all of the setup, hosting, contest management, and contestant support. The client is responsible for supplying us with logos, sponsor ad tiles, and prize information. Scores and standings are updated every week. All prizes given away are the responsibility of the client and/or their sponsors.
Our contest template is setup to match your existing website design. Sponsor ad tile placement is very flexible. We can place static ad tiles on each page, rotate ad tiles on a percentage basis, and track ad tile impressions / click-thrus. Ad tiles can be combined to make larger ads or split to make smaller ads.
Stations that have moved to the 980 pixel wide station website can use our expanded template which offers a new vertical ad tile in this area at 215 pixels wide with a flexible length.
Administrators have the ability to edit polls, manage verbiage on the homepage, lookup contestant information, and view current registration, traffic and ad tile stats. All user information can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet at any time. Sponsor specific information, like answers to additional registration questions, can be exported at any time as well.
