How To Enter:
Visit www.fordhalloffans.com and complete an official entry form with all required information (including, your name and telephone number where you may be reached on Monday, January 31, 2022, or thereafter if selected as the potential winner).
Restrictions on Entry:
There is a limit of one (1) entry per person. A given email address may only be used by one (1) person to participate in the Sweepstakes. Violation of entry limit may result in disqualification of all entries and may constitute tampering as per noted below.
Sponsor may acknowledge receipt of an entry. Any such acknowledgment is not otherwise binding upon Sponsor or Administrator.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of an online entrant, entry will be deemed submitted by the Authorized Account Holder of the email account used to submit the entry. Authorized Account Holder means the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
Random Drawing, Winner Notification:
The potential winner will be selected in a random drawing conducted by Administrator, an independent judging agency, on or about January 31, 2022.
The potential winner will be notified by telephone (potential winner must respond to telephone call him/herself, and messages will NOT be left on his/her voice mail/answering message or with a third party) and Administrator shall preliminarily confirm his/her eligibility during such telephone call.
Thereafter, potential winner must complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and except where prohibited by law, a Publicity Release Form (“Affidavit/Release”) within 24 hours of notification (or perhaps a shorter time period as indicated thereon). For the avoidance of doubt, prize will NOT be awarded based on Administrator’s preliminary determination of eligibility alone; rather, such preliminary determination of eligibility must be supplemented with a signed Affidavit/Release. An electronic signature or affirmation or facsimile signature shall have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.
If the entrant selected as the potential winner fails to timely execute and return the Affidavit/Release, if he/she is determined to be ineligible (either preliminarily or based upon the Affidavit/Release) for any reason or the selected entrant cannot be contacted after reasonable effort as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion (that is, inability of Administrator to contact selected entrant via telephone call), prize will be forfeited without compensation of any kind and an alternate entrant may be selected as the potential winner, time permitting.
Odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received.

Winner understands and agrees that travel is inherently dangerous due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic/pandemic and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, assumes any and all risks of illness or injury in conjunction therewith. Without limitation, winner acknowledges that, notwithstanding the safety precautions taken by air carrier, hotel property, stadiums or other venues, and other providers of travel-related services, it is possible that he/she may still contract Coronavirus (COVID-19). Additionally, winner understands and agrees that, in response to economic and/or social conditions engendered by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Sponsor, NFL Entities and/or Pro Football Hall of Fame may be compelled to modify, postpone or even cancel outright one or both trips. In all cases, winner releases and agrees to hold harmless Sponsor, NFL Entities and/or Pro Football Hall of Fame (as well as the other Released Parties) from any and all liability in conjunction therewith and, in no event, shall Sponsor, NFL Entities and/or Pro Football Hall of Fame (as well as the other Released Parties) have any liability in excess of the above-indicated ARV of the corresponding trip(s).
Winner must be able to travel for the Super Bowl LVI trip during 2022 Super Bowl Weekend, Thursday, February 10, 2022 – Monday, February 14, 2022. If winner is unavailable to travel so as to accept the Super Bowl LVI Trip for any reason, the Grand Prize will be forfeited altogether and an alternate winner selected, time permitting.
Should winner choose to accept the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip, winner must be able to travel so as to attend Pro Football Enshrinement Week which is projected to take place in August 2022. If winner is unavailable to travel so as to accept the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip or if winner chooses not to accept the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip for any other reason, winner will forfeit the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip Prize component (with no alternate prize or compensation being awarded); however, winner will still receive the Super Bowl LVI trip. For the avoidance of doubt, the Super Bowl LVI Trip MUST be accepted, or the Grand Prize will be forfeited; in contrast, acceptance of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip is at the winner’s sole discretion and declining the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip component of the Grand Prize will NOT result in forfeiture of the Super Bowl LVI Trip.
Actual value of each trip may differ from corresponding approximate retail value. If actual value is less than approximate retail value of a trip, winner will NOT receive the difference (assuming that Grand Prize winner chooses to accept the Pro Football Hall of Fame Trip component of Grand Prize.)
All unspecified expenses in conjunction with prize acceptance and use (for example, meals, gratuities, souvenirs) are the sole responsibility of winner.
Air travel and hotel accommodations will be determined by Sponsor/Administrator in their sole discretion; and winner and guest must travel together on the same itinerary as set by Sponsor/Administrator. Each trip is subject to availability and other restrictions. Specifics of each trip are at the sole discretion of Sponsor.
Guest of winner will be required to sign liability release and where permitted by law a publicity release (“Release”) prior to issuance of travel documents. (Again, a facsimile or electronic [scanned] copy of Release or, alternatively, an electronic signature or affirmation, will have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.) If travel guest is a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, the guest’s parent/legal guardian must be the winner as well as signing the Release on the minor’s behalf. In accompanying winner on the trip(s), travel guest (if a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, the guest’s parent/legal guardian) understands and agrees that travel is inherently dangerous due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic/pandemic and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, assumes any and all risks of illness or injury in conjunction therewith. Without limitation, travel guest (if a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, the guest’s parent/legal guardian) acknowledges that, notwithstanding the safety precautions taken by air carrier, hotel property, stadiums or other venues, and other providers of travel-related services, it is possible that he/she may still contract Coronavirus (COVID-19). Travel guest (if a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, the guest’s parent/legal guardian) releases and agrees to hold harmless Sponsor, NFL Entities and/or Pro Football Hall of Fame (as well as the other Released Parties) from any and all liability in conjunction therewith. The winner need not have the same person accompany him/her as the guest for both trips.
Winner and guest (if a minor, guest’s parent or legal guardian on the minor’s behalf) agree to conduct themselves at all times in a socially responsible, appropriate and well-behaved manner, as well as following all instructions of Sponsor, NFL Entities/Pro Football Hall of Fame and prize suppliers. Such instructions include but are not limited to those designed to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19); e.g., mask-wearing, social distancing, temperature checks, Coronavirus (COVID-19) checks. Failure to do so will result in termination of trip and, for winner possible forfeiture of prize. (However, the preceding shall not represent the exclusive remedy available to Sponsor, NFL Entities or Pro Football Hall of Fame under such circumstances.)
Issuers of gift cards will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Gift cards are subject to their terms and conditions as indicated thereon.
For Super Bowl LVI Trip, ticket type and seat location at Game are of Sponsor’s sole choosing and are subject to terms and conditions of venue as indicated thereon. Tickets are not for re-sale.
Winner and guest will not receive bonus miles, rewards points, or other “perks” in conjunction with prize travel.
If winner takes either trip without a guest for any reason (including due to failure of guest to timely return Release), such trip portion of prize will be awarded in increments appropriate for the winner alone and no alternate prize or compensation will be awarded.
If winner lives within reasonable driving distance of Los Angeles or Canton (in each case, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), ground transportation will be substituted for air travel and no alternate prize or compensation will be awarded.
All taxes on the prize won are the sole responsibility of winner. Winner understands that Sponsor is required by law to issue him/her an Internal Revenue Service 1099 Tax Form for the value of prize won; and winner agrees to fully cooperate with Sponsor or its representative in this regard, including by providing his/her Social Security Number upon request.
Prize is not transferable. Prize is not redeemable/exchangeable for cash except for gift card component of same where required by applicable law. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the prize in whole or in part for any reason for a prize/prize component of equal value.
