League creators can access the invite page by clicking on the "Members" link from the League Office. One this page you have two (2) options to send invitations to others to join your league.
- League Password - You can copy and paste the league info (LeagueID and password) and post it on a message board, blog, chat or send via your own email software. People who view this can join your league on a first-come, first-served basis until the league is full.
- Email Invite - By sending an email invite you are sending a unique link to each individual email address. The only way for the recipient to join the league is via this unique link. Note they will not be required to enter the password and when the league is join the link expires. Email invites can be sent out by either logging into one of your web-based address books (currently Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and AOL mail are supported) or by manually entering an email address into the "New Invitations" textbox.
MAKE YOUR LEAGUE PUBLIC
If you can not fill your standard private league you have the option to set the league as public. Doing this will change access to it from private to public and can be joined via the League Directory.
EMAIL INVITE TROUBLESHOOTING
Below are examples of problems you might have in joining your private league and how you can go about fixing them. If one of the examples does not help rectify your problem, please contact Customer Care at 1-888-549-ESPN.
- NO INVITATION RECEIVED
If the league creator says they sent you an invitation but you do not see it in your email's inbox it could be due to a couple of reasons:
- Your email address entered by the league creator is simply incorrect. In this case we ask you to communicate with them to ensure they are entering your correct email address.
- INVITING FRIENDS TO YOUR LEAGUE
To invite a player to your league, the LM must click on members from the league home page and assign a team by inputting the name and e-mail address in the appropriate slots. The invite will go out when you hit the submit button.
League managers can access the Invite Members page by clicking on the Members link from the League Office. Enter the e-mail address of each person you want to join your league in the "send invitations" text box and click the "send invites" submit button.
