The Participant who can present the Ticket with the same UIC as the announced UIC will be the winner (the “Winner”).
- There are administrative costs associated with conducting a raffle drawing, and FCSF reserves the right to remove the administrative costs associated with conducting a raffle, in FCSF’s sole discretion, from the Raffle Pool. The Winner will win fifty percent (50%) of the Raffle Pool, less any administrative costs removed from the Raffle Pool by FCSF (the “Prize”).
- The Drawing will occur during the fourth (4th) quarter of the Game. The winning Ticket will be chosen at random. Immediately following the Drawing, the UIC of the winning Ticket will be announced on the jumbotron and posted at various kiosks in the Camping World Stadium.
