Terms and Conditions

The Footy Buff contests are open to persons aged 18 years or over resident in the UK, Isle of Man, Channel Islands and Republic of Ireland. Proof of age and identity may be required.

Employees of Buff Games Ltd (the "Promoter") or any associated companies are not eligible to win prizes.

In order to enter the tournament ("the Contest"), players are required to register at footybuff.com (the "Website"). Only one account is allowed per person. Multiple accounts will be closed. Only one entry is allowed per person. If the Promoter has reasonable grounds to believe that multiple accounts have been opened by, or are under the control of, the same person, all such accounts shall be closed and all entries by such a player and/or accounts will be disqualified from participating in the contest or receiving any prizes. Players are required to register in their own name and any player found to be registering in the name of any other person will be disqualified.

Players will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions and have agreed to be bound by them when entering this game.

In addition to the use specified above, the Promoter will use each winner's, and each entrant's personal details for the purpose of administering the Contest. By entering this game, you agree that Buff Games Ltd and business partners may use the details you give us to contact you about products and services that may be of interest to you. You can change your direct marketing preferences by emailing us at support@footybuff.com. You can also click on the "unsubscribe" link in direct marketing emails from us, to be removed from receiving future email marketing.

THE GAME

Each entrant will answer a set number of trivia questions (usually 10) based on football. They will have a set amount of time to answer each individual question. Each question will have multiple choice answers to choose from.

The quicker a question is answered correctly; the more points the entrant will receive. However, if a question is answered incorrectly, they will receive 0 points. For each 0.1 of a second to pass, 1 point will be lost from the score.

Each contest will be open for entry for a set period of time. Once the open period has passed, the contest will close and the final leaderboard will stand. The winners will be notified of their prize (if applicable).

Some contests will require entrants to pay an entry fee to enter a contest. The contests will have set cash prizes available to the winners. The details of the cash prizes and number of winners will be displayed in the ‘prizes’ section of the tournament page.

PRIZES

There is no cash alternative to the non-cash prizes and unless agreed otherwise in writing, the prizes are non-refundable and non-transferable.

The Promoter reserves the right to substitute the prizes (or any part of them) for a prize of equivalent or greater monetary value if this is necessary for reasons beyond its control.

The Promoter will not be liable for prizes that do not reach the winners for reasons beyond its reasonable control.

Winners will be notified via the email address or telephone number registered on their account. It is each player's sole responsibility to ensure that their contact details are up to date. Winners will be required to verify (with evidence satisfactory to the Promoter) their age, identity, residence and other requested verification information before they are eligible to receive a prize. Any announcement on Footy Buff is pending verification and is not final confirmation.

If any entrant is not able, for whatever reason, to accept a prize, verify their registration information to the satisfaction of the Promoter, has been found to have breached these terms and conditions by the Promoter or cannot be contacted within five (5) Business Days (a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday in England when banks in London are open for business), the Promoter reserves the right to disqualify that entrant (and their eligibility to receive any prizes under the Contest) and award the prize to another participant, if applicable.

Entry into the Contest constitutes permission for Buff Games Ltd to use the names and photographs of participants for publicity purposes at its discretion. All winners may be required to participate in such publicity as the Promoter reasonably requires.

Please allow a maximum of 45 days for prizes for payment and delivery of prizes.

Submission of entries

The Promoter does not accept responsibility for network, computer hardware or software failures of any kind, which may restrict or delay the sending or receipt of your entry. Under no circumstances can a user submit their entry via e-mail.

Limitation of Liability

Except in the case of death or personal injury arising from its negligence or in respect of fraud and so far as is permitted by law, the Promoter, Footy Buff and each of its associated companies and agents exclude responsibility and all liabilities arising from:

  • any postponement, cancellation, delay or changes to the prizes, promotions or relevant football fixtures beyond the Promoter's reasonable control;
  • any technical failures or unavailability of the Footy Buff website or other related platforms;
  • obvious errors or omissions relating to the awarding of prizes; or
  • for any act or default of any third party supplier including without limitation errors relating to fixtures and scoring data.

The terms and conditions of any third party supplier will apply to the prize where applicable.

If any provision or part-provision of these terms and conditions is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to, or deletion of, a provision or part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of these terms and conditions.

PROMOTER

The Promoter's decision is final and legally binding on all entrants in relation to all aspects of the Promotion including (without limitation) allocation of the prizes and no correspondence will be entered into.
