Hello again everyone, I am excited to update the community with the latest developments in the UFFS world. We have many irons in the fire and our incredible team is hard at work every week, strengthening our ecosystem.
Let’s start with a very exciting new partnership that is taking our media division, The Ultimate Fantasy Sports Network, to a whole new level. UFFS is now working closely with Twitch. We are moving all of our podcasts, live events and our AFLL broadcasts to this MAJOR streaming platform. Twitch brings a new, interactive experience to our community and we plan to leverage these tools to their full potential.
With Twitch acquiring the NFL’s Thursday night football broadcast, they have an initiative to bring fantasy sports fans to their platform and we plan to be the flagship channel. In doing so, we will solidify our fantasy leagues as each sport’s true professional fantasy league. We will also be adding many new shows and watch-alongs with our media team, franchise owners, and our digital athletes. So please follow our channel and get to know all our fantastic hosts and participate in the new interactions that we will be offering.
As I am writing this update, the Team tokens are being distributed to all UFFS franchises. We have a few bugs to work on with the Swap and the team token structure. We expect to see this swap functional in Q2 2022.
We are currently pursuing more corporate ownership of franchises to join the likes of Circa Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Team tokens can be a very valuable tool for these businesses to reward their clients.
Things are moving quickly on the metaverse front, there will be a landing page reveal of the Sports and Entertainment Metaverse being developed by Maximus Technologies (https://maximustech.io/). This new metaverse will be named by early adopters. The first assets will be for sale in Q2, there will be presale options via our up and coming NFT program launches. We will outline these below.
Our entry into the metaverse will bring our franchise owners and the entire UFFS community many exciting opportunities.
Ultimate Sports NFTs
The NFT space is always changing and evolving and we have adapted to these changes. We are pleased to announce our NFT roadmap with these new innovations. Take a look and stay tuned for all the big drops happening in Q2 and beyond.
Now that many key pieces of our foundation are built, we are ready to take our brand and marketing to the next level. We are in the final stages of hiring a professional marketing agency that will work with our current team grow our community and increase awareness of our innovative ecosystem globally.
We will also be adding a weekly AMA session on the UFFSports twitter channel via a twitter space every Monday at 8est. As these AMA’s evolve we are also planning to launch a twitch show dedicated to UFFS updates and education.
CUDOS $SCO token launch
As CUDOS puts the final touches on their mainnet launch, we are working diligently with their new launchpad to prepare for the $SCO token to be available on the CUDOS blockchain. More details will be available later this month on the launch specifics. We are also exploring the possibility of having $SCO available on a third chain, we will update everyone on this as things develop.
UFFS American Football
The final piece to the UFF Sports American Football ecosystem is ready to roll out with the Ultimate College Fantasy Football League, or UCFFL!
24-franchises will be auctioned off April 26–29, 2022. The final hour of the auction will feature a live show on Twitch (twitch.tv/ultimatefantasysports) from the Circa in Las Vegas!
The UCFFL will deliver the most complete college fantasy football dynasty experience for owners. Scouts now have an opportunity to own a team, and also a new way to earn revenue through player leasing within the league.

UFBA Franchise auction
It’s been a busy month for the basketball side of things on the UFF Sports platform — Futures Auctions, the launch of the Open Market, a new league being created and sold, and the arrival of the Ultimate Fantasy Basketball Association playoffs!
In the month of March, one of the largest yet-to-debut features of the UFBA finally got off the ground: the advent of scouting!
Anyone with an account at basketball.uffsports.com was invited to register as a scout and join in on the Futures Auction, where 115 future basketball prospects were snapped up by 11 scouts for a grand total of $11,440 USD. Afterwards, the Open Market was launched as well, where any college/international player not purchased at the Futures Auction could be bought for just $20 USD worth of SCO — within 48 hours, over 100 players had been registered on UFFSports.com.
Shortly thereafter, the first women’s sport fantasy league on the UFF Sports platform was launched — the Ultimate Fantasy Women’s Basketball Association (UFWBA). Mirroring the real WNBA, twelve franchises were auctioned off and all sold out before the end of the weekend — both new and old faces participated, as many owners from the UFBA decided to bolster their franchise holdings, while new entrants into the UFF ecosystem joined as well. The season kicks off on May 6, 2022!
While the NBA and UFBA Playoffs have yet to start, there’s less than ten days remaining in the regular season! The UFBA is excited to launch a play-in tournament, which is unique across all fantasy basketball offerings, and afterwards the league goes straight to the playoffs! Eight teams from each conference — the Bird and Magic Conferences — will compete for the right to win the inaugural league title! The play-in tournament begins on April 12, 2022, while the playoffs themselves start on April 16, 2022!
The UFLB season is just days away with opening day in MLB Thursday April 7th. Join UFFS Head Baseball Dean Millard on the UFFS Twitch channel starting at 12:30 pm et to celebrate the start of the season.
Time has flown by since the franchise auctions in November with prospects being selected in the Top Prospects, Futures, and International Free Agent auctions last month as well as the 26 round Veteran Player Draft. The Open Market started this weekend with Director of Scouting Bryan Hernandez busy as a beaver approving scouting registrations.
Some blockbuster deals have gone down including Gerrit Cole and Mike Trout, 2 of the best players in MLB and some scout to franchise sales have happened already as well, suggesting UFLB franchises will be active on both fronts.
The season preview comes out Monday and Tuesday with the Vin Scully Conference on Monday and the Harry Caray Conference on Tuesday.
You can find out more information and check out the rosters before the season on the UFLB page.
The Ultimate Fantasy Hockey League is hitting the home stretch for the final month of their regular season before the Klein Cup Playoffs commence on May 2 alongside the NHL. With the trade deadline now behind them — and the 2022 prize pool capped at 204,747.77 SCO on March 21 — the UFHL’s contenders are hoping for a strong finish as they try to chase down the Royals between now and April 29 for the Founders’ Trophy as regular season winners. The Playoff Draft is scheduled for Sunday, May 1, with the midseason Owners’ Meeting taking place beforehand to preview what’s to come while also determining the entry fee for next season. The league will be presenting algorithms for the prize pool and Entry Auction, providing projected minimum bids ahead of the annual draft lottery in May for the non-playoff franchises. https://youtu.be/XPTp3v6z9_0 The UFFS hockey scouts were also busy in March, releasing their consensus midseason rankings for the 2022 NHL Draft, which help generate that UFHL Entry Auction algorithm. Six scouts and agencies submitted their Top 64 for 2022, with 105 different prospects cracking their lists and Shane Wright remaining №1 for all those contributors. https://www.uffsports.com/post/uffs-midseason-rankings-2022-nhl-draft Speaking of Wright and top prospects, the revolutionary Ultimate Fantasy World Juniors league received exciting news in March with the IIHF rescheduling the World Juniors for August in Edmonton, which means the inaugural UFWJ tournament will make a triumphant return following the disappointment of the 2022 event being shut down after just three days in December. Also noteworthy, the UFHL Now podcast will be transitioning to Twitch this month, with plans of hosting another show for hockey watch parties throughout the playoffs and potentially starting soon to enjoy the intensity of the stretch run across all leagues and levels. Last but not least, the hockey admin team is exploring the potential of launching our Legends League this summer — the Ultimate Hockey Legends League (UHLL). This is very much in the preliminary planning stages but could be coming soon if we’re able to secure a suitable gameplay platform — ideally offering video game simulation, similar to the American Football Legends League (AFLL) through Axis Football. With the right partner or gameplay host in place, the UHLL would also be hiring a commissioner. Interested candidates can email email@example.com. Stay tuned for more details on the UHLL in next month’s UFFS state of the union update! As always thank you for getting caught up with developments within the ecosystem. We are always available for questions or any feedback from our incredible community. https://t.me/uffsports Exciting Times Ahead! Tony Charanduk UFFS Founder
