Winner and any companion must travel on the dates surrounding September 19, 2021, (determined by Administrator in its sole discretion) or the Prize will be forfeited. Trip must be booked through Administrator at least seven (7) days prior to departure.

The trip is subject to availability and blackout dates. Travel must be round trip. Administrator will determine airline and flight itinerary in its sole discretion.  No refund or compensation will be made in the event of a cancellation or delay of any flight.  Travel and accommodations are subject to availability. Travel is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Rules, and those set forth by Administrator's airline carrier of choice as detailed in the passenger ticket contract. All expenses and incidental travel costs not expressly stated in the package description above, including but not limited to, additional ground transportation, meals, incidentals, passenger tariffs or duties, airline fees, surcharges, airport fees, service charges or facility charges, personal charges at lodging, security fees, taxes or other expenses are the sole responsibility of the Winner.  The Winner's travel companion must be eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of departure, unless the travel companion is the child of the Winner or a sibling of Winner with the appropriate parental permissions and releases and must travel on the same itinerary and at the same time as the Winner.  Travel companion (or his/her parent or legal guardian, if applicable) must execute liability/publicity releases prior to issuance of travel documents.  Travel restrictions, conditions and limitations may apply.  If, in the judgment of Administrator, air travel is not required due to Winner's proximity to Prize event's location in Pittsburgh, PA, ground transportation to and from the Winner's home to the hotel site in Pittsburgh, PA will be substituted for round trip air travel at Administrator's sole discretion.  Such ground transportation will include one (1) trip to Pittsburgh, PA and one (1) return trip to Winner's home (i.e., daily round trip transportation will NOT be provided). Should Winner elect to provide his/her own transportation to the Home Opener instead of accepting transportation by Administrator, or should Winner elect not to stay in the hotel arranged for by Administrator, Winner will not receive any reimbursement or other cash equivalent for the cost of such transportation or hotel.  Administrator will not replace any lost, mutilated, or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates.  Sponsors and Administrator are not responsible if Home Opener is delayed, postponed or cancelled for any reason, in which event that portion of the Prize is forfeited in its entirety and no substitution will be provided except as in Administrator's sole discretion. Administrator reserves the right to substitute for the Prize (or any portion thereof) with one of comparable or greater value at its sole and absolute discretion. 

NO TRANSFER OR ASSIGNMENT OF THE PRIZE: Exact Prize details shall be determined in the sole discretion of Administrator.  The Prize is non-transferable and non-assignable, with no cash redemption except at Administrator's sole and absolute discretion. The Winner will not receive the difference between actual value and ARV, if any. Odds of winning the Prize depends upon the number of eligible Entries received during the Promotion Period. The Winner is fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state and local taxes (including income and withholding taxes). All costs and expenses associated with the Winner's participation in the Sweepstakes and/or acceptance of the Prize shall be the sole responsibility of the Winner unless otherwise provided in these Rules.

NOTIFICATION: Administrator will notify the potential Winner at the telephone number (land line or cell) and/or by the email address provided in the Entry. Administrator will make three (3) attempts to contact a potential Winner via telephone and/or email within 24 hours from the time of the Drawing in which the potential Winner was selected. If Administrator is unable to reach a potential Winner by telephone and/or email within such 24-hour period, then that potential Winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential prize Winner's entry will be drawn from all remaining eligible Entries at random. At the time of Administrator's contact with the potential Winner, the potential Winner will be asked to provide his/her proof of age, and a government-issued photo ID. The notified eligible Winner shall be the only party eligible to claim the Prize. 

If the Winner declines the Prize, fails to claim the Prize, is unavailable for prize fulfillment, fails to abide by the Rules, or is ineligible, Administrator may select an alternate Winner from all remaining eligible Entries. Sponsors and Administrator are not responsible and shall not be liable for unsuccessful efforts to notify a potential Winner.
