Contest Types


Get ready to ball! On the court, you can access a full list of games: ones that are open, live, or even completed. You can go head-to-head against other users or up the ante in a tournament. Following Season 0, users will be able to enter contests with real money on the line!

In head-to-head matchups, your lineup entry competes directly against your opponent's team — with the victor walking away with all the spoils. Head-to-head games will be the primary game mode for most users since they allow users to unearth insights about their players in low-stakes contests.


Tournaments are an exciting part of the Swoops landscape! Accessible to all and offering big prize pools, tournaments provide another way to prove your team is a champion by matching up against the best in a single-elimination mode.

Depending on the time of season, tournaments may be regular or special in nature. For example, most tournaments are public entry; however, the end-of-season tournament is an exclusive event open to select teams based on leaderboard performance and winning at-large bids.
