HOW TO ENTER: To enter, eligible entrants must complete the following two steps:

  1. If you are not doing so already, follow @myesusu on Instagram. 
  2. Visit the Sweepstakes landing page, available at www.esusu.com/LAFC-free-kicks-free-rent, and complete and submit the Sweepstakes entry form found there.

Upon completing these two steps, you will receive one entry into the sweepstakes corresponding with the Entry Period during which you submitted your entry form. 

Limit one (1) entry per person for each of the three separate sweepstakes. For purposes of clarity, entrants may enter each of the three sweepstakes, but they must submit a separate entry form during each stated Entry Period. Non-winning entries from one sweepstakes/Entry Period will not roll-over to subsequent sweepstakes/Entry Periods. Entries that are lost, late, incomplete, illegible, corrupted, mechanically reproduced, falsified, mutilated, damaged, altered or otherwise irregular, misdirected entries, or entries not received for any other reason will be void and disqualified at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. Entries become property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

PRIZES AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE (“ARV”): Eight (8) prizes will be randomly awarded during the entire Sweepstakes. Specifically, as shown in the table above, one (1) winner will be selected for Sweepstakes #1; two (2) winners will be selected for Sweepstakes #2; and two (2) winners will be selected for Sweepstakes #3.

Each of the eight (8) winners will receive the following:  

Prize: Payment of one (1) month’s rent (not to exceed $2,000 in total) (ARV: $2,000). See additional details below. 

For the winner of a prize, Sponsor will make the tenant’s rent payment, for a single residential unit, for a period of one month (30 days) directly following the conclusion of the respective sweepstakes and confirmation of prize eligibility. The amount of the monthly rent payment will be determined by the residential lease/rental agreement entered into by the tenant, and tenant may be required to provide proof of the amount of monthly rent payment if requested by Sponsor. In no event, however, shall Sponsor pay more than $2,000 in total for the one month’s rent. If the amount of one-month’s rent exceeds $2,000, tenant will be solely responsible for payment of any difference in monthly rent. If the amount of rent payment made by the tenant is less than $2,000 for the one-month period, tenant will not receive the difference in the stated ARV value of the prize and the actual rent payment, and no such claims shall be honored. Winner must be one of the listed tenants on the rental/lease agreement. Monthly rent payment will be made by Sponsor directly to the tenant’s landlord on behalf of the tenant, and tenant may be required to provide Sponsor with landlord’s appropriate account and payment information. For purpose of clarity, Sponsor will not make any payment directly to the tenant. Monthly rent payment will be limited only to the standard monthly rent for a single residential unit, as listed in the tenant’s lease/rental agreement. Prize does not include payments for multiple leased/rented units or include any additional amounts, such as late fees, damage assessments, utility payments (if not incorporated into the standard rental agreement), or any other amounts or similar fees, beyond the standard monthly rent for a single unit. If, for whatever reason (whether voluntarily or otherwise), winner does not remain a tenant of the unit for the full one-month term, Sponsor will make payment to cover the monthly rent until the end of the tenancy (subject to the maximum limit of $2,000 stated above), but shall have no further obligation or responsibility thereafter.

Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. PLEASE NOTE: All taxes on prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. Where not prohibited, certification of eligibility (including SSN), prize acceptance form, tax information, publicity release, and/or mutually acceptable liability releases may be required from winner. Prizes are not transferable and no substitution or cash equivalent is allowed, except in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize of the same approximate retail value if advertised prize becomes unavailable for any reason. If the value of a prize to a single winner exceeds $600, the winner’s social security number or taxpayer I.D. will be required in order to issue a Form 1099-MISC showing prize ARV as income to winner. Prize consists only of items specifically listed as part of the prize. All costs and expenses not specified herein relating to the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner.

Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during each Entry Period.
