W Connection FC is giving away two all-expenses paid tickets to see Chelsea FC versus Manchester United live at the Stamford Bridge Stadium in October, to a lucky patron who purchases tickets for its upcoming 2016-2017 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) matches against Mexico’s Pumas UNAM on August 3 and Progresso from Honduras on August 25.

Both CCL games will be played from 8 p.m. at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva. The National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) approved promotion is aimed at attracting crowd and financial support between local teams Bankers Insurance Central FC and Directv W Connection, who will represent T&T at the competition.

After a slow start both Central FC and W Connection had some credible results despite not coming out of the group stage in the 2015-2016 CONCACAF Champions League. Central FC held La Galaxy 1-1 and beat Guatemala’s Comunicaciones 1-0, while W Connection beat Costa Rica’s Saprissa 2-1 and were unlucky to fall 1-0 to Mexico’s Santos Laguna.

Local champions Central FC have boosted their squad and have the attraction of former English Premier League striker Kenwyne Jones in their squad when they entertain 2015 Canada champions Vancouver Whitecaps FC next week Tuesday at Ato Boldon Stadium. Adult admission for both games will be priced at $80. Children under the age of 12 pay $40.

Next Wednesday, W Connection go into action at the same venue against 2015 Mexican Apertura runners-up Pumas. W Connection’s promotion will see the door prize winner earning a grand prize of an economy class round trip airfare for two persons to Gatwick International, London. from Port of Spain — hotel accommodation at the Copthorne Hotel inclusive of daily breakfast, match tickets, and ground transfers.

Only one purchased adult ticket number can qualify for the draw. Tickets must be validated by a scan on entry at either game. No complimentary, VIP, or children’s ticket will be eligible for the draw. The prize will go to the winning ticket and a travelling companion of their choice. The minimum travelling age of the travelling companion of the winner is 16 years.

The winning ticket number will be drawn on October 2 and first announced in the three daily newspapers on October 5, 2016. A second publication will be done on October 7 2016.
