The Prize is awarded “AS IS.”  Neither Sponsor nor any of the other MLS Entities makes or offers any warranty or guarantee, either express or implied (including, without limitation, quality, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose) in connection with this Contest or any prize.  The Prize is non-transferable and non-assignable, with no cash redemptions or substitutions except at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a Prize (or portion thereof) with one of comparable or greater value, at its sole and absolute discretion.  Game dates and times are determined in the sole discretion of MLS and/or Sponsor, as applicable, and may be subject to change.  Seat locations will be determined by Sponsor.
