The Press Your Luck NAFL Players Tournament is a yearly tournament on the American television game show Press Your Luck

It features NAFL Players playing for their Home VIewers and their worthy causes.


The NAFL Players Tournament uses a ten-game format similar to that used for the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions, the Jeopardy Teen Tournament and the Jeopardy College Championship since 2000: 15 players, in groups of three, play in five quarterfinal games; the winners of those five games and the four highest-scoring nonwinners as wild cards become the nine semifinalists who compete in three games, with no two players rematching each other in the semifinal round. The three semifinal winners advance to the two-day final round, in which contestants play two separate matches, with the contestants' combined scores for both matches determining the champion (contestants start with $0 each day).

From 1997-1999, The NAFL Players Tournament had a 5-game format which featured 12 NAFL Players, The Top 3 High Scorers will qualify for the Friday Finals with the winner receiving a $25,000 Bonus for the Charity.
