We have been made aware of a data provider error which occurred during the Lions v Kangaroos AFL match on Saturday night. The provider error resulted in 10 points (1 free kick for, 1 kick, 1 goal) being awarded to Lincoln McCarthy instead of Hugh McCluggage.

Typically contests are paid out upon the final data being posted by our data provider. In this instance, once the correction was made by our data provider, the contest had already been paid out. This is an extremely rare situation which we have not previously experienced. The correction took place before the Saturday daily contests we paid out.

Although we are not directly responsible, it is against our beliefs to pay out contests with incorrect player scores and potentially leave the true winners unrewarded. As a show of good faith, we have decided to pay out all affected contests with the new, correct stats. This means affected players will receive an adjustment to reflect the true leaderboard positions and original prizes.

Existing winners that have already been paid out have not been affected. While this comes at a cost to Draftstars, we believe this is the right thing to do. Draftstars has always been, and will always be about the player.

Thank you for your ongoing support, and we’ll see you on the leaderboard.
