Frequently Asked Questions

What is the National Fantasy Football Convention?

The National Fantasy Football Convention (NFFC) is an interactive three-day event featuring a series of events, exhibits, performances, and parties. At the NFFC, you can throw around the pigskin with active NFL players, learn draft strategies from fantasy gurus, meet your favorite stars, and so much more. We are frequently referred to as the Comic Con for football fans.

Where is the NFFC take place?

The 2018 NFFC will take place at the Will Roger Memorial Center in Fort Worth, TX.

What is the difference between the Field Level and MVP passes?

The Field Level pass is a general admission ticket. It will give you access to all NFFC events that are not designated as “MVP Exclusive.” The MVP pass, in addition to all Field Level events, gives you access to all MVP exclusive events, priority entry and seating, exclusive player interaction opportunities, the MVP lounge, and so much more.

What is the Legend’s Pass?

The Legend’s Pass is essentially an MVP pass with one added bonus: The Legend’s Lounge with Jason Witten, Ezekiel Elliott, Michael Irvin, and many more Cowboy’s players. This a private lounge designed for these 100 diehard Cowboy fans to get to meet some of our biggest stars in an intimate setting. This is the only way to guarantee a meeting with Jason Witten, Ezekiel Elliott, and Michael Irvin. Additionally, we’ll be bringing in a plethora of surprise visits from countless other Dallas Cowboys.

Autographs and photographs are allowed in this area if the player agrees. Please be respectful to these players. This is meant to be an opportunity to converse and socialize with your favorite players.

Due to the vast amount of player presence brought to this lounge and the extremely limited number of passes, no discounts are available on these registrations.

What are the age restrictions/requirements?

People of all ages are welcome to register and attend, but fans under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the Convention. Everyone age 5 and older is required to purchase a full registration. Children ages 4 and under are free, with accompanying adult registration.

Due to the nature and structure of certain events, certain activities and areas will be age-restricted:

Training Sessions: 6 and up
Main Stage Events: 6 and up
Off-site parties: 21 and up

Will my registration be mailed to me?

No. You will pick up your badge at the NFFC registration desk at Fair Park (or at the Kick-Off Party).

What do I need to pick up my registration?

You will need either your confirmation email OR a government ID.

What can and can’t I bring to the convention?

Here is a list of items you will not be allowed to bring into the Convention:

  • Weapons of any kind (firearms, pocket knives, etc.)

  • Professional video equipment and/or cameras

  • Illegal drugs

  • Alcohol

  • Outside food and beverages

  • Drones (or other flying objects)

  • Any materials constituting unauthorized promotion

Tobacco or tobacco-related products may be brought in, but may not be used at anytime inside the Convention. This includes any form of electronic cigarettes.

While bags, purses, and backpacks are welcome, they will be searched upon entry to the Convention.

NFFC staff reserves the right to deem any item as dangerous, disruptive, or inappropriate, and may refuse entry to the Convention at our discretion. If you have questions about a specific item, please email us at

How will the autograph and photograph sessions work?

The NFFC is a Convention focused around player interaction in ways never before seen in football; it is not an autograph show.  However, there will be countless opportunities throughout the Convention for autographs and photographs with the players and personalities. Not all players will have an autograph and/or photograph session based on their discretion.

Outside merchandise may be signed at the players’ discretion. Items to be autographed may also be provided by the NFFC and our partners. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any photographs, autographs, or specific items being autographed for any of the players.

While we would like for every registrant to get any autograph they want, that is not our goal. We want the players to have a great time as well, so please be respectful and only ask for autographs during designated times. Photograph sessions, Q&A’s, NFFC field activities, and other events not specifically stated as autograph sessions are not appropriate times. Attendees who are consistently disrespectful to players or other celebrity guests will be asked to leave the Convention.

Please note: for the 2018 NFFC, we will be completely re-designing our autograph and photograph sessions to give fans even more opportunities to meet & greet their favorite players. More information will be released as we continue to work on our new game plan!

What are the Training Sessions?

We will be featuring a series of classes focused on a specific area or topic within fantasy football. Taught by the nation’s greatest fantasy experts, they’ll be both highly entertaining and educational, presented in a fun, interactive manner. These Training Sessions are designed to cover everyone’s needs, from the very beginners to the masters of the craft. Whether you’re just getting started, or a nine-time defending champ, there’s at least one session that you won’t want to miss. The training sessions are open to all MVP and Field Level registrants ages 6 and up.

What is the Ultimate Fantasy League Draft?

The Ultimate Fantasy League is an actual fantasy football league consisting of active NFL stars (players to be announced) and several lucky NFFC fans. By attending the Convention, you are automatically entered to win one of the fan spots. Everyone has an equal chance to win, with the winners being announced right before the Ultimate Fantasy League Draft begins. Once the fans are named, they will join our NFL stars on stage for a live in-person draft in front of thousands of attendees and online viewers.

Yes, we do! All military personnel and first responders may use the promo code “HEROES” to receive 50% their registration. A valid ID, badge, or other proof of service will be required to pick up a registration using the HEROES promo code.

What is your refund policy?

You may request a refund within 24 hours of your purchase if registered before July 1st. All sales after July 1st are non-refundable.

TEXAS, MARCH 27: Designed by fans, for fans, the National Fantasy Football Convention (NFFC) is coming back to Texas for the second annual celebration of all things football on July 13-15.

Coming on the heels of last year’s smash-hit, the 2018 NFFC will be three times as large, boasting more than 200 professional football players, and representing at least two players from each team in the National Football League. Some of the early headliners are Zeke Elliott, LeSean McCoy, Michael Irvin, Kareem Hunt, Melvin Gordon and Jason Witten. The Convention will also include the first-of-its-kind “Taste of Texas” and car show.

“What began as a convention focused on fantasy football has become something so much greater. The NFFC is now a genuine celebration of America’s favorite sport. There is no better way for fans to interact and engage with their favorite players,” said NFFC CEO Andy Alberth.

Listening to feedback from last year’s attendees and players, the NFFC has tripled in size and is providing ample opportunities for fans to meet players while taking in the sights, tastes and sounds of a unique sports consumer show.

“We’re so excited to come back to Texas for the Convention. Football is a way of life down here and the energy and passion fans bring for the game is infectious. We’re thrilled to bringing that spirit to fans all over the country, We’re building Disneyland for football fans of all ages here at the NFFC added Alberth.
