A purchase does not increase your chances of winning. During the Sweepstakes Period, go to promotion.coke.com/matchball (“Website”) and follow the instructions to complete and submit the registration form to enter the Sweepstakes (“Entry”).

In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the Entrant.
