TERMS & CONDITIONS – SEND SOMEONE STATESIDE

MLB Gaming and VR (“MLBVR”) has developed a proprietary Home Run Derby VR experience (“MLBVR”) for use by Major League clubs. This event involves a virtual reality batting cage which lets its users swing for the fences in high-definition VR.

The MLB have given Stateside Sports a unique opportunity to bring this event exclusively to Stateside for the next two months (July through to September). This will be the first of its kind in Australia.

The MLBVR will be at the following stores for a limited time: Highpoint (VIC), Bankstown (NSW), Blacktown (NSW), Eastgardens (NSW), Liverpool (NSW) and Wetherill Park (NSW).

The activation will involve a number of competitions, with the chance of winning several different minor prizes, or the overall major prize of a trip of a lifetime to the USA with tickets to watch two World Series games. This package is worth $10,000+.

Only players over the age of 16 are permitted to have a go in the Home Run Derby.  Winners must be over the age 18.  Stateside Sports Australia Pty Ltd reserves the right to alter any aspect of this promotion without notice.


How it works

Each of the six locations previously mentioned will serve as “Qualifying Rounds”.  The winner at each store will move through to the finals in our Eastgardens store in Sydney.  The qualifier from the Highpoint session will be flown to Sydney for the day to participate in the finals.

If a qualifier can’t participate in the Knockout Finals, the qualifying position will be given to the runner up from same location.

This will continue to be the case until a qualifier is able to attend the Finals.

Before taking part in the event each participant will have to provide all of their details onto one of our tablets which will take their name, email, social handle and phone number. This is so that winners of the prizes are able to be contacted.

The event will involve a participant trying to hit as many home runs as possible during a 90 second period. The participant with the highest number of home runs after the completion of the activation period will become the qualifier for that location and will move onto the Knockout Finals.

If after the completion of the activation there are one or more participants with the same number of home runs, then the total score of the participants will determine the winner. If there are multiple participants with the same score then the winner will be picked at random.

Each location will generate one qualifier for the Finals to have the opportunity to win the Major Prize. The qualifier from each location will be announced via Stateside Sports Facebook and Instagram after the activation at that location is finished.

The Knockout finals will gather all six store qualifiers and two wildcard entries. A knockout competition will determine the winner of the major prize.  In the event of a draw in each knockout contest the same determining rules will apply as per the event at each store.

The wild card entries will be selected from one social media competition and one instore/online competition.

 

Wildcard 1 | Social Media

The first wild card qualifier will be selected from a social media competition.

The social media competition will be run on Facebook and Instagram.  Keep an eye on both platforms for how to take part. There will be a limit of one entry per participant. The winner of this competition will be randomly selected from all Facebook and Instagram entries, and will be announced via social media once selected. If a qualifier can’t participate in the Knockout finals, Stateside Sports will randomly select another applicant from the competition entries. This will continue to be the case until a qualifier is able to attend the Finals.

 

Wildcard 2 | Instore or Online

The second wild card qualifier will be selected from a combined instore and online competition where any customer who purchases any MLB item will have their name entered into the draw to be randomly selected for the wildcard qualifier.  This competition will be run for the length of the location activation's with any customer who purchases an MLB product during this time able to receive at least one entry into the draw.

 

Each MLB item purchased will be one entry for the customer into the draw, e.g three MLB items would put their name three times into the draw. If the MLB items are bought in-store the customer MUST sign up to become a member of Stateside Sports at the time of purchase to enter the competition, as the winner will be notified by the email they provide at this time. For online, the customers email will be automatically taken at time of purchase.

 

Stateside Sports Australia Pty Ltd may alter how the Wildcard entries are awarded.

 

The two wild card entries will each receive a place in the Finals (The Knockout Competition) without having to participate in the store location qualifying rounds. The two wild card qualifiers will go straight to the Finals with the other 6 qualifiers from the store locations.

 

The activation prizes can be won in 3 ways, through a contestant give away, a game of skill or a game of chance:

 

Game of skill – Major prize

 

The winning player (who hits the most home runs) in each location will qualify for the Knockout finals held in Sydney. Participants can enter as many times as they want, although they will have to queue up again to have another shot of qualify for the final round. They will not receive another giveaway if they choose to participate in the activation again. There is one giveaway per participant.

 

The Melbourne qualifier will have travel expenses allocated. This will involve one economy return flight including transfers for the qualifier. This will be a one-day round trip, and the qualifier will arrive in Sydney during the morning and return to Melbourne the same night, after the Finals competition is finished. They will also receive one meal voucher. Any other expenses of the trip will have to be paid for by the qualifier.

 

For the finals, a knockout skill game will determine the winner of the Major prize.  The Knockout Finals are an elimination tournament, where the 8 qualifiers will be randomly selected to compete against another qualifier. The first stage will involve 4 knockout rounds, with 4 successful qualifiers to move onto the second round where they again will be randomly selected to compete against another qualifier. The second stage will involve 2 knockout rounds, with the winners of each round moving the third and final stage to compete against one another. The third and final round will determine the winner of the Major prize. These Knockout rounds will work exactly the same as the qualifying rounds, with the qualifiers having 90 seconds to hit as many home runs as possible.  Should there be more than 2 Wildcard entrants then they will play off aginst each other to form part of the final 8.

 

Game of chance – Minor prize $500 shopping voucher

Participants at each location will enter a raffle to win a $500 Stateside Sports Voucher to be spent on MLB Gear in-store.  The raffle will be drawn from the details each of the participants gave on Stateside Sports tablets before they played the activation. This raffle will again be randomly drawn after the activation period is completed. Participants can enter as many times as they want, although they will have to queue up again to have another shot of qualifying for the Major Prize and also to gain another entry into the raffle. They will not receive another giveaway if they choose to participate in the activation again. There is one giveaway per participant.

 

Contestant Giveaways – 20% OFF voucher and a MLB lucky dip

Each participant will receive Stateside Sports 20% off in-store voucher to drive customers from the activation to the store (discount voucher will be for MLB gear only). They will also have the opportunity to have a lucky dip where they can win one of the following MLB World Series prizes: A cap, a keyring and a pennant (while stocks last).  The two giveaway prizes (voucher and other item) will only be given to participants once, and only while stocks last. Participants may not queue up again to receive another giveaway package, and they may also not swap their give away package or re-pick an item. The 20% off Stateside Sports vouchers are valid only instore at the location which participants played the activation, they are not able to be used in other activation locations or on our online website. The 20% off vouchers will only be valid for 7days from participants receiving them, and will have an expiry date on the voucher.
