Send league invites

Once you're done setting up your new Fantasy Sports league, your next step as commissioner is to invite some of your friends to join!

Start recruiting

Inviting others to your newly-created league is as easy as signing in to your league's homepage and locating the "Invite friends to your league" section.

From here you'll be able to invite prospective league managers in a variety of ways.

Non-commish invites

Commisioners, the days of collecting email addresses from your league managers so you can send their friends invites is over.

If you're a league commish, you can allow other league members to send invites to undrafted leagues. Just opt-in when you set up your league by selecting the "Invite Permissions" option: All Managers Can Invite when you set up your league.

Forget to opt-in when you created the league? No sweat! You can still enable the option before your league drafts.

  1. From your league's homepage, click Commissioner.
  2. Under "League Management," click Edit League Settings.
  3. Scroll to "Invite Permissions" | select All Managers Can Invite.
  4. Click Submit.
