(“QR”) code featured on specially-marked promotional materials available at participating stores,
which will take you to the Game’s website, OR (b) to play without scanning a QR code, use your
computer to go to gatorade.com/UEFA (“Website”).
Once at the Website, follow all prompts and instructions regarding how to register and complete
and submit a Game play. After the Game Play, the entrant will receive notification on the
Website screen as to whether he/she is a potential “Instant Winner” (“Notification”). Each entrant
who receives a winning Notification will be deemed a potential Instant Winner subject to
verification of the entrant’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, as determined by
Sponsor in its sole discretion.
All Game Plays must be submitted no later than 11:59 pm ET on 6/13/2021 to be valid. Limit
one (1) Game Play/entry per person per Day, regardless of the method of entry. The Judging
Organization’s clock shall be the official clock of the Game. A “Day” begins at 12:00 A.M. ET
and ends at 11:59 P.M. ET during the Promotion Period. Use of any robotic, automatic,
programmed or similar Game play method or more Game plays than are permitted per day

plan; you are solely responsible for any such wireless charges associated with such use, including
the downloading (if applicable) and use of the QR reader. If you do not have a QR code scanner
on your phone, search for “QR reader” in your mobile device’s application store to find available
QR readers for your phone or device. QR readers may not be available on all devices. A mobile
device is not required to participate. An entrant cannot participate solely by scanning the QR
code.
By submitting a Game Play, entrants fully and unconditionally agree to be bound by these
Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which will be final and binding in all matters relating
to the Promotion. In the event of dispute over the identity of a potential winner, a Game Play will
be declared made by the authorized account holder of such email address or wireless phone
number submitted at the time of Game Play, and potential winner may be required to provide
identification sufficient to show that he/she is the authorized account holder of such email
address or wireless phone number. It is solely the responsibility of the participant to notify the
Sponsor in writing if the participant changes his or her email, wireless phone number or postal
address during the Promotion Period. Each Game Play must be manually keystroked and
manually entered by the individual participants; automated and/or repetitive electronic Game
Plays (including but not limited to Game Plays made using any script, macro, bot or promotion
service) will be disqualified and transmissions from these or related email/IP addresses or
wireless phone number may be blocked.
Each Game Play shall also constitute one entry into the Grand Prize drawings. All eligible
winning and non-winning game plays received during each Entry Period will be registered for
that Entry Period’s Grand Prize Drawing as described in Section 4.

Potential Grand Prize Winners will be randomly selected from among all eligible entries received
during each Entry Period. Each winner is considered a potential winner pending verification of
their eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Drawings will be conducted by an
independent judging organization (“Judging Organization”) whose decisions will be final and
binding in all matters relating to this Promotion. Potential Winners will be notified by phone or by
email within approximately three (3) days following the drawing. If winner does not reply to
notification within three (3) days, an alternate winner may be drawn. Limit one (1) Grand Prize

If a potential winner is disqualified, found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official
Rules, declines to accept a prize, the prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected in
a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, as determined by Sponsor in its
sole discretion. If, after a good-faith attempt, Sponsor is unable to award or deliver a prize, the
prize may not be re-awarded. Upon verification of eligibility, prizes will be mailed to the winners
at the physical addresses (P.O. Boxes are not permitted) provided at the time of entry. Any
portion of a prize not accepted by winner will be forfeited. Each winner shall be solely
responsible for payment of any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes for their prize
won. Sponsor will issue an IRS Form 1099- MISC for each winner of a prize with an ARV of
$600 or more. All other costs and expenses not expressly set forth herein shall be solely each
winner’s responsibility. The prizes will only be awarded to a verified Winner.
Sponsor will attempt to notify each potential winner as set forth above, but Sponsor is not
responsible for any undelivered e-mails, including without limitation e-mails that are not received
because of a winner’s privacy or spam filter settings which may divert any Promotion e-mail,
including any winner notification e-mail, to a spam or junk folder.
6. SECOND CHANCE DRAWING: A second chance drawing will be held on or about June 15,
2021 for any unclaimed Prizes (Grand Prize is not included). Drawing will be conducted by an
independent judging organization whose decisions are final. Second chance drawing winners
will be randomly selected from among all eligible non-winning Game Plays received during the
Promotion Period. Odds of winning the second chance drawing depend upon the number of
unclaimed Prizes and the number of eligible non-winning Game Plays received throughout the
Promotion Period. Limit one (1) Instant Win Prize per person, household, street address, and/or
email address. Second Chance Drawing winners will be notified by email within three (3) days of
the drawing at the email addressed used at registration, and will be required to reply within three
(3) days in order to claim Prize.
