Entrants must fully complete and submit all non-optional data requested on the online entry form to be eligible. Incomplete entries are void. Online entrants to the Sweepstakes will be given the option to receive commercial e-mails from MLS Entities; however, eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes is not dependent upon entrant’s consent to receive such e-mails and consenting to do so will not increase your chances of winning.

By entering contact information into the Sweepstakes entry form, you affirm that you have read, understand and agree to these Official Rules. Entrants understand that they are entering at their sole risk. Sponsors are not responsible for any claims arising from an entry specifically including, but not limited to, claims for intellectual property infringement and privacy rights violations, as well as violations of the respective social media site’s terms and conditions.
In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsors’ satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The MLS Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error, which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes. The MLS Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Proof of sending email is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsors of such entry.
RANDOM DRAWING: Goals scored by Minnesota United FC during regular season home and away games will be counted. For every 20 goals scored during the regular season, a winner (each a “Winner” and collectively, the “Winners”) will be selected by random drawing from all eligible entries received by Sponsors within three (3) business days. In the event the random drawing falls on a holiday, the winner will be selected the following business day. The decisions of Sponsors are final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.
PRIZES: For every 20 goals scored during the regular season, a Winner will be selected. The number of Winners is capped at three (3), and up to three (3) prizes are available to be awarded during the Entry Period, as each 20 goal threshold is reached (each, a “Prize”). Each Winner will receive one (1) gift certificate issued by Twin Cities Eye Consultants for Lasik treatment of either one (1) or two (2) eyes (at the discretion of Twin Cities Eye Consultants following a complimentary consultation). Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each Prize Package: $2,100 for one (1) eye; $4,200 for two (2) eyes. Total ARV of all available Prizes depends on the number of eyes each winner chooses to treat, but will be $12,600 if each Winner has Lasik on both eyes.
Each winner must be eligible or willing to receive a LASIK procedure within nine (9) months of winning. If the winner does not receive a LASIK procedure within nine (9) months, that entrant forfeits his or her right to the prize and will not be reimbursed for the prize and/or any expenses associated with determining eligibility.
The Prize is transferable at the sole discretion of Twin Cities Eye Consultants if, upon consultation, the Winner is not a candidate for Lasik treatment, with no cash redemptions or substitutions except at Sponsors’ sole and absolute discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to substitute the Prize (or portion thereof) with one of comparable value, at Sponsors’ sole and absolute discretion.
Transportation to/from Sponsors’ location(s), as applicable, is not included and is the sole responsibility of the Winner. The Winner is fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes (including income and withholding taxes). Winner must submit a W-9 if requested by Sponsors. All costs and expenses associated with Prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided, including but not limited to consultations, appointments, any transportation costs, any post-treatment care, any follow-up appointments, any post-treatment prescriptions, any materials, gratuities and/or other expenses incurred by accepting the Prize are the sole responsibility of the Winner. All Prize details are at Sponsors’ sole discretion.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: Each Winner will be notified by e-mail, mail and/or telephone (in the sole discretion of Sponsors and/or the applicable MLS Entity, as applicable) by the Sponsors. In the event that any potential Winner does not respond to any such notification within three (3) days of the date of issuance, a disqualification will result, the Prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsors’ sole discretion and time permitting, an alternate potential Winner may be chosen from among all remaining eligible entries.
