Final Reminder – 2nd Annual Charity Football Pool

Just a reminder that the season gets underway TONIGHT with a Super Bowl rematch between Carolina and Denver. But there’s still time to sign up for our 2nd Annual Austin Hardware Charity Football Pool. The deadline to register and play is at kickoff of the 1 PM E.T. games on Sunday, September 11th.

How the Pool Works

  • There is no cost or purchase necessary to play. It is open to anyone* who receives the Pool ID (see below).
  • This is a “Survivor” style pool.
    • Players pick one (1) NFL team each week to WIN (straight up, no point spread).
    • If the player’s pick WINS, he or she continues to the next week. If the player’s pick LOSES or TIES, he or she is eliminated.
    • Player may pick EACH TEAM only ONE TIME per season.
  • Limit is one (1) entry per username and password
  • Updates will be provided weekly via e-mail, the pool dashboard at, and on our social media sites. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

*Austin Hardware employees are not eligible.
