Kenosha, Wis. (December 15, 2011) – Today, Jockey International, Inc. launches the Jockey $1 Million “Super” Challenge sweepstakes, betting that pro quarterback and Jockey spokesman, Tim Tebow and his team will win football’s championship game on February 5, 2012. The best part: When Tebow wins, fans win. If Tebow’s team continues their hot streak and captures that hallowed trophy in Indianapolis, Jockey will celebrate by giving 40,000 fans $1 million worth of Jockey product. In addition, one lucky fan will win $15,000 in honor of Tebow’s lucky number 15.
“Tim has proven that he is a gifted athlete, a true leader and above all, a winner,” said Jockey Chief Marketing Officer Dustin Cohn. “In fact, we at Jockey believe in Tim so much, that we’re offering the chance to celebrate history in the making in a big way.”
Fans can enter the sweepstakes online in two simple ways. Starting December 15, 2011, all customers who make a purchase on Jockey.com will automatically be entered for a chance to win. Consumers can also enter without a purchase by registering at Jockey.com/Tebow. If Tebow’s team wins the championship, Jockey will select 40,000 entrants to each receive a $25 Jockey gift card, and one grand prize winner will be selected to win $15,000 cash. The contest will run through February 5, 2012, or for as long as Tebow and his teammates are eligible to win the championship.
In honor of Tebow’s amazing weekly performance en route to the championship game, Jockey is also giving fans even more reasons to celebrate with special weekly football-related discounts and promotions on all Jockey online merchandise.
