Play-Calling Competition Rules

Your Call Football allows you, the fan, to call the shots in live play-calling competitions.

Vote on three coach-selected plays and then watch the majority pick unfold live on the field. You win (or lose) as a result of each play call, as you try to prove you’re the smartest play caller by outsmarting the defense and all the other YCF participants.

The best play callers are handsomely rewarded with over $70,000 in cash prizes up for grabs over the course of the series.

Your ability to rack up points and climb the leaderboard depends on your total score, which is calculated in points after each offensive play. With each play call, you have a chance to earn points in the following three ways.

Field Score

You are rewarded or penalized based on how your play-call pans out on the field. First down? Awesome. 2 points are added to your score. Fumble? Minus 3 points. See full breakdown of Field Score points below.

Coach Pick Bonus

Even if your play isn’t run on the field, you’re rewarded for proving that you think like a true coach. A 1-point bonus is received if your play choice lines up with the coach’s.

Against the Grain

Think you had the right call after all? A 2-point bonus is received if your play wasn’t run AND the play run on the field had a negative result meaning: 1) Field Score was equal to or less than zero OR 2) There was a standalone yardage event on the field (either a run or a pass), and it gained one yard or less.
