As they say, you can't win if you don't play.
If you're a regular reader around these parts, you've already seen us invite you to our league on MLSSoccer.com's Fantasy Soccer: Manager game. And you've already seen our fantasy expert's sage advice on building your roster for Week 1 (which starts today! woo!). And because rosters don't lock until 15 minutes before the first kickoff of the day (which would make the deadline 3:45 this afternoon), there's still time to join in the fun. And even if you miss Week 1, it's a long season, so there'll plenty of time to catch up.
And just to sweeten the pot a little bit, SB Nation and MLS are teaming up to offer some pretty sweet prizes to league winners. The winner of the B&RU league (private league no. 7173-1471) will receive a $100 gift certificate to MLSGear.com, and two runners up (i.e. second and third place in our league) will each win a subscription to MLS Live for the 2014 season.
But wait. There's more.
SB Nation is also running a wider league, and the prizes are even sweeter. The winner of the SBN league (join using private league no. 15011-2593) will receive two tickets to the 2014 MLS match of his or her choice, and the next five highest finishers will each receive 2014 MLS Live subscriptions. The SBN league won't start scoring until Week 2, so you've got every chance of winning.
Here's the best part: you enter one team in both leagues, so you don't have to worry about managing separate rosters. So what are you waiting for? Go join!
Just make sure you check out the official rules - all entries will be subject to these rules, so make sure you read them over. Or, to put it more legally: By participating in this contest you are subject to the official rules found here.
Now go! Play! Win!
