The FSTA will accept applications from prospective new members and the Membership Committee will review the qualifications to make sure the applicant adheres to the FSTA Code Of Ethics. After a sufficient period (no less than 90 days), the applicant will be allowed to display the FSTA Member graphics on their site.
All members of the FSTA are expected to deal honestly. This will mean different things to different companies, but a simple business trait everyone should follow. It's broad, and it's narrow. It means everything that you say in your advertisements you should do or have done in past years, and be able to prove. The use of comparison advertisements, where all aspects are not being compared, should be discouraged. For game operators, we suggest all the rules and information for a game should be provided before taking the entry fee from a participant. Ads that feature promises of large prizes, that are actually pro-rated and unlikely to be awarded, are discouraged.
All FSTA members must be reputable with their customers. If you tell someone you are going to do something you should! For game operators, all rules must be the same for all players, and all rules that are published should be adhered to. Employees, relatives, etc. of game operators should not be allowed to win prizes playing their games. All prizes must be paid by the date published.
All products and services advertised by FSTA members must be delivered, and by the date promised. All companies should allow the use of credit cards. The use of Post Office Boxes should be discouraged. All statistics should be accurate.
All games must abide by all laws. No game can be used for any form of gambling. Web sites whose primary function is the operation of gambling operations will not be admitted to membership. All FSTA members should focus on keeping our industry creditable, and we should work with each other.
As an FSTA member, you will be given the first opportunity to sponsor FSTA events and programs. With its large and diverse membership, FSTA rarely has sponsorship opportunities that are not first snatched up by corporate members. These are opportunities for high-profile event and program sponsorships. Read More...
Member companies will be authorized to use the FSTA Logo/link on their sites.
FSTA provides ways to give your organization visibility at all levels. Not only do we have sponsorship and event opportunities, but also newsletters for which we solicit articles from corporate members, committees and councils. FSTA provides a way for you to establish your company as a Fantasy Sports industry leader.
Last, but not least, you get support. If you have an idea as to a new program or project you'd like to undertake, or you would like to get something specific out of your membership, talk with the FSTA. We will provide assistance or ideas that help make your goals a reality.
