eBay Dream Transfer Window Raffle
Promotion and the Prize
The eBay Transfer Window raffle (“Promotion”) is a raffle hosted on www.eBay.co.uk (the “Site”) in order to support Football Beyond Borders (Football Beyond Borders: Association of Fundraising Regulator, registered in England and Wales No. 1158046) (the “Charity”). This Promotion will allow eligible users to purchase a virtual (raffle) ‘ticket’ on the Site in order to be entered into a prize draw and have a chance of winning a Prize.
Past football legends will join with eBay and the EFL to spark some unexpected joy by offering humble Sunday League Clubs a chance to sign a big name for one game. The winner will secure the opportunity for their nominated 11-a-side grassroots team to play a game with a football legend. The prize also includes team jerseys (1 per player) and travel to the local stadium location. The local stadium location is whichever stadium that is closest to where the team is from, that is also suitable to host a shoot. Travel is capped to within the UK.
There is one prize available to be won for each participating football player. Each ‘ticket’ you purchase will count as one entry and will be specific to each football player.
There is no limit to the number of times you may enter each prize draw or the number of prize draws that you may enter.
The price of the ticket will be stated on the page on which you purchase the ticket.
There is no cash alternative and the Prize cannot be transferred. In the unlikely event that a player is not available for any reason, the match will be rescheduled to a date they can attend. If for any reason the player cannot play in the match, an alternative prize will be communicated to the winner.
The Promotion will be open from 7 January 2022 and will end at midday (12:00:00 noon) on 28 January 2022, UK Local time (“Promotion Period”).
This Promotion is open to users of www.eBay.co.uk (the “Site”) who are 18 years of age or older. Entrants must have a UK delivery address and their team must be registered with their county FA with a club affiliation number.
You will be entered into the Promotion and be eligible to win a Prize when you purchase a raffle ‘ticket’ on the Site or if you enter via an alternative entry route described below (each an “Eligible Entry(ies)”).
Please note that irrespective of what it may say on the Site or on the page where you purchase the virtual ‘ticket’, you will not be receiving a physical item. Your order confirmation for the ‘ticket’ purchased will serve as proof of entry, if so required.
All proceeds from the ‘ticket’ sales shall go to the Charity.
There will be 1 (one) winner who will be selected at random from all the Eligible Entries for each of the Prizes. The total number of winners will depend on the number of participating football players and if there have been Eligible Entries for each of the Prizes.
