If a potential winner is a minor in his or her country of residence, the prize will be awarded to the minor’s parents or legal guardian, who must sign and return the Affidavit on behalf of the potential winner. Please note that the Affidavit will also require the consent of the potential winner (or the potential winner’s parent or legal guardian, as appropriate) to have FIFA use his or her name, photograph, likeness, voice, prize information and biographical information for publicity and promotional purposes without further compensation.
If a potential winner cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and/or return the requested document within the specified time period, the potential winner shall be disqualified and shall forfeit the opportunity to be a
potential winner and claim the prize. The next user in line shall be deemed the potential winner.
