1. By entering this competition (the "Competition"), you represent and warrant that you have read, fully understand and agree to be bound by these Competition Rules. You further agree to be bound by the decisions of Universal Spheres Inc. (the "Company") which shall be final and binding in all respects.

  2. The Competition is restricted to individuals who are at least eighteen years of age as of the date of entry in the Competition.

  3. Entry in the Competition is open only to individuals residing in the United Kingdom throughout the duration of the Competition.

  4. The Competition is free to enter.

  5. Only one entry per person is permitted (if the entry is by mobile telephone text message, only one entry per mobile telephone is permitted).

  6. Your participation in the Competition will only be permitted where such participation is legal and not prohibited. The Company makes no representations or warranties, implicit or explicit, as to your legal right to participate in the Competition nor shall any of the Company's employees, licensees, distributors, wholesalers, affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising, promotion or other agencies, media partners, agents or retailers have the authority to make any such representations or warranties.

  7. Employees, officers, directors and shareholders of the Company, as well as its licensees, distributors, wholesalers, affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising, promotion or other agencies, media partners, retailers and members of the immediate families of each are not eligible to participate in the Competition.

  8. Three entrants to the Competition will be randomly drawn from all of the entrants (the "Drawn Entrants"). The Drawn Entrants will be contacted and invited to attend a football match at Wolverhampton which will take place on February 19, 2005. During the match, at half time, each of the Drawn Entrants will be given three (3) opportunities to kick a football through a target (the "Target") from a distance of 12 yards (Penalty Spot) from the Target. Each Drawn Entrant will be given twenty-five (25) seconds in order to complete the task. Time will begin on impact of ball on first kick attempt and end on impact of ball on third and last kick attempt. The Target will be placed at the opening of the net and will have a ten (10) inch opening placed in the center of the goalposts, five (5) feet above the ground. Practice attempts at kicking the football towards the Target will not be permitted. Slipping, tripping and/or falling prior to, during or after kick attempt (resulting in a misfired kick) will qualify as a valid attempt at kicking the Ball. No retries will be permitted.

  9. Whichever of the Drawn Entrants is successful in kicking the ball through the Target will win the grand prize, which will be one hundred thousand pounds (100,000) (the "Grand Prize"). In the event Drawn Entrant kicks ball through Target on first or second kick attempts, no further kick attempts will be permitted. Only one (1) kick through the Target is required to win the Grand Prize. For the avoidance of doubt, it is possible for more than one of the Drawn Entrants to win the Grand Prize (in which case each such Drawn Entrant who is successful will win the Grand Prize in full, and will therefore each receive 100,000) and it is also possible for none of the Drawn Entrants to win the Grand Prize.

  10. Secondary prizes (which may, but will not necessarily, comprise a football or football jersey or similar) will be awarded to those Drawn Entrants who are successful in kicking the Ball and hitting the Target on all three (3) kicking attempts within allotted time. Kick attempts in which ball rolls along the ground and towards the Target and makes contact with the Target will NOT qualify as a hit Target. Ball must leave ground and make contact with Target to qualify as a hit Target and the Secondary Prize.

  11. No prize will be awarded to Drawn Entrants who fail to kick the Ball through the Target AND also fail to hit the Target on three (3) consecutive kick attempts.
