sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, may be declared invalid and disqualified
for this Sweepstakes. Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, including but
not limited to the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries deemed by
Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner will be void. In the event a dispute
regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s
satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: At the end of the Promotion Period, the winner will
be randomly selected in a drawing from all eligible entries received throughout the Promotion Period. The
drawing will be conducted by Sponsor or its designee, using randomization methods selected by Sponsor
in its sole discretion. A potential winner will be notified by telephone and/or mail and/or e-mail using the
contact information given at the time of entry. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification
that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts,
a potential winner does not respond within the time period specified in the winner notification, or if the
prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential
winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found
to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason
prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor
may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winner(s) of the Grand Prize in accordance with
such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of the Grand Prize after such attempts have been
made, if any, the Grand Prize may go unawarded.
PUBLICITY RELEASE: By participating in the Sweepstakes, in addition to any other grants which may
be granted in any other agreement entered into between Sponsor and any entrant in and/or winner of the
Sweepstakes, each entrant irrevocably grants the Promotion Entities and their respective successors, assigns
and licensees, the right to use such entrant’s name, likeness, and biographical information, and any other
personal characteristics, in any and all media for any purpose, including without limitation, advertising and
promotional purposes related to the Promotion Entities or the Sweepstakes or other promotions, and each
entrant and/or prize winner (and each minor entrant’s and/or minor prize winner’s parent or legal guardian)
hereby releases the Promotion Entities from any liability with respect thereto.
PRIZES/ODDS: There is one (1) Grand Prize available. The Grand Prize consists of a “Season of
Chargers Football” which includes two (2) tickets for the Grand Prize winner and one (1) guest to each
regular season home game that the Los Angeles Chargers play during the 2021 NFL season at which fans
are permitted to attended. Tickets are subject to additional terms and conditions that are printed on the
tickets or available through a link on electronic tickets. The total approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the
Grand Prize is One Thousand Six Hundred Dollars ($1,600).
Sponsor is not responsible for travel to and from the games. All expenses and incidental costs not expressly
stated in the Grand Prize description above, including but not limited to, ground transportation, meals,
incidentals, service charges or facility charges, lodging, taxes, gratuity or other expenses are the sole
responsibility of the Grand Prize winner and his or her guest.
The Grand Prize winner’s guest must be eighteen (18) years of age or older, or if such guest is under the
age of majority in his or her state of residence (a “minor”), the Grand Prize winner must be such minor’s
parent or legal guardian, or such guest must accompany the Grand Prize winner with the written permission
of such parent or legal guardian in form and substance acceptable to Sponsor in its sole discretion. If the
Grand Prize winner is a minor, his or her guest must be his or her parent or legal guardian, or Grand Prize
winner must attend the games with the written permission of such parent or legal guardian in form and
substance acceptable to Sponsor in its sole discretion. Children under the age of sixteen (16) will not be
admitted unless accompanied by an adult. In the event the Grand Prize winner or any of his or her guests
engage in behavior during any game that (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) is obnoxious or
threatening, illegal or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, Sponsor reserves
the right to terminate the Grand Prize winner’s and his or her guest’s attendance at the applicable game
early, and send the Grand Prize winner and/or his or her guest(s) home with no further compensation.

postponement, an event of “Force Majeure” (defined below), or for any other reason, then in lieu of
attending the applicable game or games, the Grand Prize winner will receive One Hundred Dollars ($100)
(the “Substitute Prize”) for each home game that the Grand Prize winner could have otherwise attended,
and such amount plus the remaining components, if any, of the Grand Prize shall constitute full satisfaction
of Sponsor’s prize obligation to the Grand Prize winner, and no other or additional compensation will be
awarded. In addition, if attendance at a game is restricted or prohibited due to local or other applicable
COVID-19 restrictions or another event of Force Majeure, the Sponsor reserves the right to allocate game-
day tickets using whatever methods it chooses in its sole discretion, and if such allocation prevents the
Grand Prize winner and/or his or her guest from attending one or more home games that are played
notwithstanding such affected attendance, then the Grand Prize winner will receive the Substitute Prize for
each home game that the Grand Prize winner could have otherwise attended, and such amount plus the
remaining components, if any, of the Grand Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s prize
obligation to the Grand Prize winner, and no other or additional compensation will be awarded. Only up
to five (5) Substitute Prizes will be awarded in total, and the Substitute Prize amount will be calculated and
paid in one lump sum at the end of the season.
No cash alternative or substitution of prizes will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right in its sole
discretion to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if any prize listed is unavailable, in whole or in part,
for any reason. The total ARV of all prizes is One Thousand Six Hundred US Dollars ($1,600).
Many will enter, only one (1) will win. Actual odds of winning depend on the number of eligible
entries received.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Prizes will be awarded only if the potential prize winner fully
complies with these Official Rules. All portions of the prize are non-assignable and non-transferable.
Prizes pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other
Sweepstakes materials are for illustrative purposes only. Actual prize may vary from the prize pictured.
All details and other restrictions of the prize not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by

with the applicable prize. The potential winner will be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a
Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize
Claim Documents”). If a winner is a minor, at Sponsor’s option, the applicable prize either will be awarded
in the name of the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner, or the parent or legal guardian of such
minor winner will be required to ratify and sign Prize Claim Documents. If any potential winner (or, in the
case of a minor, such minor winner’s parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize
Claim Documents within the time period specified in the winner notification, the winner may be
disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. The winner’s guest for each game must sign an

GENERAL LIABILITY RELEASE/FORCE MAJEURE: Acceptance of a prize constitutes winner’s
permission for the Promotion Entities to use winner’s name, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical
information, statements and address (city and state) for advertising and/or publicity purposes worldwide
and in all forms of media now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without further compensation.
Each entrant (and any minor entrant’s parent or legal guardian) agrees that the Promotion Entities (A) shall
not be responsible or liable for, and are hereby released from, any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages
of any kind, including, without limitation, death and bodily injury, due in whole or in part, directly or

acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) have not made any warranty,
representation or guarantee express or implied, in fact or in law, with respect to any prize, including, without
limitation, to such prize’s quality or fitness for a particular purpose. The Promotion Entities assume no
responsibility for any damage to an entrant’s, or any other person’s, computer system which is occasioned
by accessing the Website or otherwise participating in the Sweepstakes, or for any computer system, phone
line, hardware, software or program malfunctions, or other errors, failures, delayed computer transmissions
or network connections that are human or technical in nature. Without limiting the generality of the
foregoing, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged,
stolen, or postage-due submissions or prize notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable
networks, servers, satellites, Internet service providers, websites, or other connections; or for
miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable
transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature;
or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. Sponsor
reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering with the
entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or the Website, to be acting in violation of these Official
Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsman-like or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine
the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and
Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent
permitted by law. No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other
automated multiple entries will be accepted. If a dispute as to the identity of the individual who actually
submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.
Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes if it determines, in its
sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical
problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely
undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility
of the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein. In the event an insufficient number of eligible entries are
received and/or Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Sweepstakes as
contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man-
made epidemic of health of other means, pandemic, stay-home or shelter in place order, earthquake,
explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil
disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any federal state or local government
law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably
within Sponsor’s control (each a “Force Majeure” event or occurrence), then Sponsor shall have the right
to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated
end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner in a random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect
entries received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall
be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes
described in these Official Rules will be awarded. If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward
seeking to claim prizes in excess of the number of each type of prize set forth in these Official Rules, the
winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of prizes available in the prize
category in question may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly
valid claims for such prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy
under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a
– 5 –

written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The
invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability
of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise
unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance
with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION: ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE
CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL
RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION
WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE

ANY CHOICE OF LAW OF CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE
THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS.
ARBITRATION PROVISION: By participating in this Sweepstakes, each entrant (and any minor
entrant’s parent or legal guardian) agrees: (i) that any and all disputes the entrant may have with, or claims
entrant may have against, the Promotion Entities relating to, arising out of or connected in any way with
(a) the Sweepstakes, (b) the awarding or redemption of any prize, and/or (c) the determination of the scope
or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration
administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (ii)
this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be
governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (iii) the arbitration shall be held in
Los Angeles, California; (iv) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of
these Official Rules and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable entrant may have
entered into in connection with the Sweepstakes; (v) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent
with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law;
(vi) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration
can decide only entrant’s and/or Sponsor’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the
claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (vii) the arbitrator shall not have the power
to award punitive damages against the entrant or Sponsor; (viii) if the entrant is able to demonstrate that the
costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of
entrant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to
prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (ix) with the exception of subpart (vi) above, if any
part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts
with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be
construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were
not contained herein. If, however, subpart (vi) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the
entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither entrant nor Sponsor shall be entitled
to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at
