Are You Ready for Kickoff?

Are You Ready for Kickoff?

The approach of autumn means cooler weather, falling leaves, tailgating and…FOOTBALL. Face it, no other sports season is more highly anticipated than the game played on the gridiron with a pigskin. And with football season, comes the annual Santander Pro Football Pool.

Those dealers that participated in last year’s inaugural event know how much fun it is to compete against your fellow dealers online for some great prizes. Not to mention bragging rights. This year’s pool promises to be even better with new prizes awarded to the winning dealer every week.

As you get ready for the football season and are working out the moves of your touchdown celebration dance (you know you have one), be thinking of your picks for the first game of the first week – Cowboys versus Giants on Wednesday, September 5.

Good luck, it’s going to be a fun and exciting football season.
It’s incredibly simple to enter. If you are interested in joining the pool, you can sign up by following these steps.

If you participated in any of the past Santander Dealer pools (golf, college basketball, pro football, etc.):

  • Go to RunYourPool.com
  • Log in with your Username and Password
  • Click on “Join an Existing Pool” on the header and enter Pool ID number 13052 and Password drive123 click the Go button
  • Click on the “My Account” link on the top-right of all pages
  • Click on “Santander Pro Football Pool”

This will ensure that you can keep using your existing log in and password. The next time you come in with your own Username and Password, you will arrive at the Pro Football Pool.

If this is your first time logging in:

  1. Go to RunYourPool.com/join.cfm
  2. Enter the following information:
    1. In the Pool ID box, enter the number 13052
    2. In the Pool Password box, enter ‘drive123’ (without the single quotes)
  3. Fill out the form information, including a personal username and password. (Rest assured, this information will NOT be sold or utilized for spam email under ANY circumstances.)
  4. Make your weekly pick (see “How the Pool Works” below), with the ability to change them right up until your pool’s deadline.

How The Pool Works:

  • Picks are made “straight up,” not using a point-spread system.
  • Each pool member picks every NFL game for the week.
  • In addition to picking the winning team, members must rank how confident they are that the team they picked will win. The more points assigned to a pick, the more confident they are that team will win.
  • For each correct pick, they receive the number of points they assigned to that pick.
  • Standings are calculated for the week and for the year-to-date.
  • We’ll also be tweeting throughout the season, so be sure and follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/SantanderDealer) to keep up with the latest information
  • Like us on Facebook and we will announce the winner(s) for each week on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/SantanderAutoDealers). The winners can have their ASM stop by to deliver your prize and snap a photo of you for us to post on Facebook.

A brief reminder: You must get your picks in by the weekly deadline — before the first game each Sunday, however if there is an early game you must pick ALL games before it starts. You can modify the remainder of the games up until the Sunday deadline. All picks will be hidden until the game has begun (for early games) or the until the first kickoff on Sunday. Good luck to everyone. If you have any questions, please Read the FAQ and check out the Message Board. If you still have questions, feel free to post it on the public message board. You can always ask your administrator ddonascimento@santanderconsumerusa.com.
