Who’s going to be golden? That’s the million-dollar question entering the inaugural Ultimate Fantasy World Juniors tournament on the UFFS platform.

Fans can also get involved by submitting their medal winners for the UFWJ/WJC Predictions Contest, with $500 USD worth of SCO up for grabs! It is free to enter — simply predict gold, silver and bronze for both tournaments — and the deadline is Dec. 26 at 2 p.m. ET prior to the start of the first WJC game on Boxing Day.

Armed with that knowledge and understanding that UFWJ countries can trade until New Year’s Day — the trade deadline is Jan. 1 at 11:59 p.m. ET prior to the WJC medal round — it’s time to take a look at the UFWJ rosters coming out of the draft, with the countries listed in the order that they selected over all 30 rounds.
