TO OUR FANS,
We are deeply disheartened to be sharing this news with you today, but due to the ongoing actions of the National Football League and after painstaking internal deliberation, we will be announcing the postponement of the inaugural National Fantasy Football Convention to-be-determined later date.
The NFFC has arrived at this decision to postpone only after lengthy and heart-wrenching deliberations, but the NFL’s blatant and continued interference has fractured beyond recovery our capacity to deliver the unique opportunities the NFFC had intended to provide, and it is for that reason that why we find ourselves in this undesired situation.
The NFFC is not going away. We now leave it in the hands of the courts in full confidence that we will ultimately be able to bring the NFFC’s events to life.
Finally, we wish to express our heartfelt appreciation and deepest gratitude for the efforts and involvement of all those players, partners, and fans who have supported us along the way. You inspire everything we endeavor to create, and we hope to one day soon share those experiences with you.
