HOW TO ENTER
Visit NESN.com/Lexus to visit the online entry page. Enter your name, zip code, TV provider and email address and click “submit” to be entered into the Sweepstakes. To be eligible, entries must be received between 9:00 AM Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 and Sunday, June 30, 2019. Only one (1) entry will be accepted per person/email address. Duplicate entries will be disqualified, including duplicate entries using different email addresses for a single individual. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late misdirected, illegible, damaged, or undelivered entries. Entry materials/data that have been tampered with or altered, or mass entries or entries generated by scripts, macro or use of automated devices are void.
Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, and/or any other methods will void that Entrant’s entry and that Entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed submitted by the person in whose name and email address were submitted via the entry form (the “Authorized Account Holder”) and he/she must comply with these Official Rules. The potential grand prize winner may be required to show proof of being the Authorized Account Holder. If the Sponsor cannot determine the identity of the person based upon the information submitted via the entry form, the respective Entrant will be disqualified. By entering, each Entrant; (a) represents that he/she is at least eighteen (18) years of age and otherwise eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes; and (b) fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and legally binding in all respects. Any person who tampers with the entry process in any way will be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
A total of six (6) potential winners will be determined in a random drawing on July 3, 2019 among all eligible entries received (each a “Grand Prize Winner”). Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Decisions of Sponsor or Sponsor partner regarding the Sweepstakes are final.
Each Grand Prize Winner will receive a NESN VIP Experience at the ballpark for two (2) on 9/18 vs San Francisco to include: i) a private tour of the ballpark, ii) a meet and greet with the NESN announcers, iii) watching the pre-game show live, and iv) watching batting practice from the field (the “Grand Prize”). Total approximate retail value (“ARV”) of each Grand Prize is $500. Travel to/from the ballpark is not included as part of prize. Grand Prize Winners and guests agree to comply with all venue and activity rules and regulations. Failure to do may result in forfeiture of remaining portion(s) of prize.
