IRN-BRU SPFL & Football League Promotion - Conditions of Entry
Update: 22 December 2015
Good news! We have an additional prize available for the Late Entry Draw – 1 x match package for 4 people for either a Sky Bet Football League or Ladbrokes SPFL League "home" fixture. This means we need to make a few small amendments to the conditions of entry below, namely:
Condition 5: Late Entry Draw
The third sentence of the paragraph entitled Late Entry Draw beginning "The prizes available..." will be deleted and replaced with the following:
“The prizes available for the Late Entry Draw will be:
- 1 x match package for 4 people for a Sky Bet Football League or Ladbrokes SPFL League "home" fixture held between 30 March 2017 and the end of the 2017/18 season
- 10 x IRN-BRU branded limited edition footballs”
The following will be inserted as a new sentence at the end this condition:
“Once the match package winner has confirmed he/she accepts his/her prize, we will liaise with him/her to make the arrangement on his/her behalf for the group of 4 to attend the fixture of their choice, all in accordance with the prize details and rules described in condition 6 (except that the match will be held between 30 March 2017 and the end of the applicable 2017/18 season). “
This condition will be amended to read as follows:
“To obtain the full name and county of the winners of the match package prizes, send a self-addressed envelope clearly marked "FAO IRN-BRU Brand Manager" with details of your request to: "A.G. BARR p.l.c., Westfield House, 4 Mollins Road, Cumbernauld, G68 9HD" by: (i) 20th February 2016 in the case of the winners of the Main Draw; and (ii) 30th June 2017 in the case of the winner of the Late Entry Draw.”
