An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. Grand Prize Winner fully understands that COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death regardless of age or health condition, and that no precautions, including the Safety Requirements and other protocols implemented by WWE, its affiliated entities and/or third parties (including, but not limited to, federal and state governmental agencies and local health authorities) can eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Grand Prize Winner and Grand Prize Winner’s guest assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or a bacteria, virus or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether occurring before, during, or after any aspect of the Grand Prize trip, however caused or contracted. Grand Prize Winner and Prize Winner’s guest voluntarily waive all potential or actual claims, liabilities, or demands against WWE and its affiliates that relate in any way to exposure to or contraction of a communicable or infectious disease, including, but not limited to, COVID-19, by any other individual, including but not limited to Grand Prize Winner’s minor children, family members, and/or other guests.
Admission to all events associated with WrestleMania and participation in all aspects of the Grand Prize trip is subject to compliance with all safety and health requirements and policies put in place by WWE, SoFi Stadium, the Los Angeles area hotel, and airline, as applicable, including requirements relating to face masks, social distancing, and enhanced health screenings (which may include a requirement that Grand Prize Winner, and Grand Prize Winner’s guest, be temperature screened and/or tested for COVID-19 prior to or during the event) and those policies and requirements of local health authorities (including, but not limited to, the City of Los Angeles and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Each person (including children) may also be required to complete additional documentation or paperwork prior to participation in any aspect of the Grand Prize trip. Such policies and requirements as they may be updated from time to time (in the sole determination of WWE) and as they may be communicated prior to or during the event (whether orally or in writing) by, for example, instruction provided by WWE or SoFi Stadium personnel or signage in or around SoFi Stadium, are collectively referred to as the “Safety Requirements”. Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, these Safety Requirements may continue to be updated from time to time between the announcement of this Sweepstakes and the Grand Prize trip. Grand Prize Winner acknowledges and agrees that all members of Grand Prize Winner’s party will comply with the Safety Requirements (including all requirements that must be satisfied prior to or during an event), and attendance at each event is conditioned on such compliance.
ODDS OF WINNING. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
