Ultimate Tailgate Party Powerball Promotion
Nov. 8, 2013 – How’d you like to meet a professional football legend? How about 100 of them? That’s just the opportunity Powerball players can have if they enter into the Ultimate Tailgate Party promotion in any of 18 participating states.
Two hundred contest winners will get a football fan’s dream vacation – a 5-day-long trip to Cleveland, Ohio to celebrate the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 50th anniversary with 100 Hall of Famers at the 2014 Fan Festival.
The Fan Festival, which will run May 3 and 4 at the I-X Center in Cleveland, is the first-ever celebration of the fans behind Pro Football and the Hall of Fame, and pro football greats are excited to recognize the fans who supported them as players.
Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw said in an I-X Center press release “I realize more than ever how much I owe to the fans… this Fan Fest is a great chance to say thanks to the Hall of Fame fans of the game.”
The Fan Festival will feature Hall of Famers discussing next season’s draft, giving commentary through a sports movie film festival, signing autographs and even holding a football clinic on a 100-yard field in the I-X Center.
While the Fan Festival will be open to anyone who buys a ticket (ticket sales begin in December), Powerball contest winners will be treated to the Ultimate Tailgate Party the evening before the Fan Festival kicks off. What’s any pro football event without a great tailgate, right?
The 200 winners of the Powerball contest and their lucky guests will get to sit down to dinner with one of the 100 Hall of Famers present. After dinner, winners will team up with a different Hall of Famer to compete in a tournament of several different games.
Each winner will receive round-trip airfare for themselves and three guests. Once in Cleveland, participating lotteries will also provide them with two hotel rooms, meals and transportation.
Along with admission to the Ultimate Tailgate Party and Fan Festival, winners and their guests will also receive admission for the Pro Football Hall of Fame itself, and the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame – also based in Cleveland.
Not all of the state lotteries participating in the Ultimate Tailgate promotion have released details regarding entry into the contest, so players should check their state lottery’s website for specific details.
One thing definitely needed for entry is the purchase of $10 or more on a single Powerball ticket. Players can enter non-winning tickets into the contest through their participating lottery.
The 18 states offering the contest are: Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont and West Virginia.
