'If It's Football, It's Vital'

(Awesome!) Vital Pompey 'in it to win it'...no.2

The latest Vital Pompey competition is giving you, yes you - or at the very least someone you know! - the chance to win a free ticket to the Pompey - Arsenal game in May. We are feeling mighty generous here at Vital Pompey Towers!

The competition!

To stand a chance of winning this ticket you will need a slice of luck, but before you need this luck you have to earn the right to be clutching that rabbits foot as you need to fulfil 2 different levels of criteria to even make the final draw - come on, you did not expect it to be a gimmie did ya...

  • Firstly, you must score 150pts or more in the members league between now and April 25th - by 6pm on Saturday 25th... 150pts in 24 days, that really is a piece of cake, if you really wanted to you could rack that up in a day!

  • Secondly, you have to look out for a series of questions. They could appear anywhere, at anytime on the Vital Pompey site... they could appear as a thread in 'the forum' - this will never be within another thread, if in the forum it will be a new thread, in one of the 'match preview's' paultsmouth does, in one of Gino's 'Pompey Chimes' editions, maybe even a Dave's 'Toast', it could be that Chixy might even have one hidden away in something he produces, as might I in one of my daily articles, so you will have to keep coming back to find out these question, and then answer them!

    10 questions, all that could be easily answered with a little looking on t'internet, will be spread randomly over the 24 days, so keep your eyes peeled. If/When you see the questions do not comment to answer them, please email on the link that you will be provided with, if you answer it for everyone to see you give someone else the chance of winning what could be yours!

    From these 10 questions, which will all be Pompey, Arsenal, or Pompey v Arsenal specifically related, I will need at least 7 correct answers for you to make draw. They will be easy trust me, if you do not know them looking them up on Google or Wikipedia should soon help you, hint, hint! So getting 10/10 should not be that hard...

  • Thirdly, and finally if you manage over 150pts, have got at least 7/10 correct answers with me your name will be put into a hat and the first randomly drawn name will be the winner of the free ticket to the Pompey - Arsenal game, currently scheduled for Saturday 2nd May, although this is quite 'probably' going to change, so do bare that in mind...

    What could I win?

    Did I not mention? Oh, just a free ticket for the Pompey v Arsenal game - you will not be sitting alone though let me add, it is organised so you will be sat with another member of this site, someone that I can vouch for as being a 'sound' person.

    Who can win?

    Anyone, bar myself, so long as you fulfil the criteria given and become the lucky first name at random drawn from those entered to win you will win - simples!

    How do I know if I win?

    I will contact you via private message - an email like feature, which you see in the forum - and via email to notify you by Sunday 26th April. If I have no reply within 48-hours then I will leave a comment in the competition thread to announce the winner so check back to this article a day or so after closing to check, better still check your inbox!

    Please Note!

    'If' you already have a ticket to the game, you might be a season ticket holder already or have already purchased one for the 'corresponding fixture' that you had to to get one for this game you are free to pass this onto a friend or family member. However the winner must, and I mean must meet me in person at the Milton Arms prior to the game to collect the ticket, I will not be posting this onto the winner!

    No cash alternative will be offered, and the editor's decision is final.

    If you are an overseas reader and you win, then obviously if you cannot make it over for the game this will have to be issued to someone else that can - if you cannot arrange this I will have to draw again. In the interests of fairness, and to ensure you did win something I would probably arrange a little something at my expense, as I am kind like that...

    So, to clarify this is not limited to UK only, but if you would not be able to get to Fratton for the game then I must again stress you either have to allocate the ticket to someone else, or I will, you will not be offered a cash alternative. This ticket has to be used by someone!

    There you go, you know what to do, so go do it, earn those 150pts or more by 25th April and look out for the 10 questions - they could start at anytime - and the winner could be you, or you could at least be winning for a friend or family member...

    honestly its simple...
    get 150pts or more and answer 7/10 questions that will appear somewhere on this site between now and 25th april and you have a chance - you at least make the draw, then its all down to luck, before the luck tho you have to earn the right to have some luck...

    i would do them as the come along personally, as you 'might' miss the deadline... t'internet is a powerful device, you 'should' find answers in minutes, if you did not already know them in seconds...
    there 'might' be a question already lurking somewhere...

    Judging by the points total at the end of the 2nd day we alreasdy have 37 members with points so you will all have to work hard for your prize.

    MFFP, this 'might' explain your eagerness to comment - build up your points, but do it the right way mate try not to comment for the sake of comments sake - if that makes sense... you have plenty of time to get the points, its a marathon not a sprint - rememb er tho that points are worth nothing without ANSWERING questions, and question no.1 is already out here, somewhere!

    the only way you will get a ticket for this game now is in this competition as the pompey site has announced this is now a sell out!
