What is UltimateFan?

UltimateFan, or UF for short, is a next level fantasy football game where fantasy football meets pack openings. Instead of having a set budget to choose your squad, you must build your roster and set your weekly lineups using cards you have opened from packs.

Contests operate on a weekly basis, so you can leave those bad weeks in the past and start afresh with the next week. Thousands of pounds worth of NFL gift cards is available to be won each gameweek.


How much does it cost to play?

UltimateFan is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play. All fantasy football contests in app are free-to-enter too!

There are also no fees to claim your winnings either! All free!


What do I receive upon sign-up?

Once you’ve downloaded, registered (either as a new user or using existing Low6/UltimateFan account credentials) and entered the game, you’ll receive a FREE pack of ten random NFL player/team cards to enable you to build your first UltimateFan squad!

Your FREE initial pack will include at least one gold card and two silver cards. The remaining seven cards will be chosen at random and may include additional gold or silver cards, if you are lucky!


Do I receive any further free packs?

Before each week begins, every user receives a ‘base’ pack containing three cards. The pack is usually dropped on Tuesdays, although this may change depending on the NFL schedule. We will keep you informed of any pack drop changes in-app and across UF social media channels.

This free weekly base pack contains three entirely random cards, these could be players or teams and can be gold, silver or base cards.


How do I build my UF squad and enter the contests?

See our guide to playing UF here: ultimatefan.com/us/how-to-play.

All fantasy football lineups built are automatically entered into the contests each gameweek.


Can I increase the number of packs I receive?

UF+ gives you an additional gold pack each week, and was made free to all users ahead of the season finale on February 13th.


How do I subscribe to UF+?

You currently do not need to subscribe to UF+. All UF users receive UF+ benefits free of charge.


I’m an existing UF+ subscriber, what happens now that UF+ is free?

If you are an existing UF+ subscriber, you do not need to do anything with your subscription. Your subscription will automatically conclude.

You will receive your remaining packs from your paid for subscription. These are in addition to the gifted UF+ packs that all users will now receive. The remaining packs should all drop ahead of the season finale contest.


What do I get with UF+

Currently free for all users, you will receive UF+ benefits and this includes access to exclusive UF content which provides previews, reviews, insight and tips to help build your UF squad and more.

You will also receive a gold pack each week, guaranteeing two gold cards and one silver card per pack.


What determines if a card is gold, silver or base?

The players and teams have been allocated by the UF team. The perceived top 10 teams are gold cards, the next best six are silver and the rest gold. Players have been selected by perceived ability and likelihood to score points before the 2021 NFL season began. You might therefore find the odd base gem!

We do not intend to re-allocate players and teams as the season progresses, but will continue to allocate any new players (e.g. new acquisitions) as we see fit.


What happens if I sign-up midway through the 2021 NFL season?

No problem! Your chances of winning start afresh every week of the season. Each week is a separate contest where all users begin with 0 points.

Apart from the initial pack of ten cards, all further packs (both free and subscription) are allocated to existing users only at the time of the pack drop. If you sign-up mid-way through the season you will not receive the packs from the weeks prior to your sign-up.


What new features should I expect in UF?

We aim to develop and improve UltimateFan to make it the best game it can be.

Our sister game in the UK has recently introduced invitational leagues, fixture information and injury/suspension information. We hope to rollout the same soon with UF here in the states.

We have many more ideas so stay tuned!


What happens with the playoffs?

UltimateFan will continue through the playoffs, right up to and including the Superbowl.

Users will only receive player and team cards still in the playoffs in their weekly packs and we recommend manage your roster closely to ensure you have playing assets all the way through the playoffs.
