Terms and Conditions

nib Little Legends ‘$10,000 Relay’

How does a team enter the competition?

1. To enter the competition, complete the entry form on the Blues website and tell us in 100 words or less ‘How would your club spend the $10,000 to support the health and wellbeing of your junior players?’ (https://blues.rugby/nib-relay/). Ten clubs (‘Eligible Club(s)’) will be invited to participate in the nib ‘$10K Relay’ activation (‘Skill Activation’) for their chance to win $10,000 for their junior rugby club.

2. Employees of nib and Blues and their children or grandchildren cannot enter the competition, unless we agree otherwise.

3. To be an ‘Eligible Club’, a rugby club or rugby team must be located in the Auckland, Northland or North Harbour regions.

4. Clubs can only enter one team.  A team must consist of ten club members age 12 or 13 at 1 May 2021.  Each child who participates in the Skill Activation must have an activity release form signed on their behalf by their parent or guardian.

5. Each eligible child and one parent/guardian will be provided with an entry ticket to the Blues v Chiefs match on 1 May 2021 but must organise their own transport to and from the match.

6. The Skill Activation portion of the competition will be staged as follows:
(a) the teams will be directed to their allocated positions on either side of the field by the event organisers; and

(b) on the sound of the whistle, one child from each team (standing on one side of the field) will pick up the rugby ball and sprint the width of the field to the sideline at the other end of the field. The Entrant must then pass the ball to their teammate, who will then sprint back to the original sideline and pass the ball onto their next teammate. The relay will continue until all members of each team have had their turn and the final team members have crossed the finish line, as set out by the event organiser. Any team that starts before the whistle is blown will be disqualified.

7. The first team that finishes the Skill Activation will be the winner and receive the prize. The event organiser’s decision is final.

8. If there is a tie between two teams, the event organiser will conduct a tie- break by tossing a coin.

9. The parents/appointed guardians agree to have their Eligible Child/Children participate in any content the Promoters wish to produce around the Competition, and consent to the Promotors using the winner’s likeness, images and/or voices in any media (including but not limited to photos, filming and social media posts) for an unlimited period without remuneration for the purpose of promoting this promotion (including any outcome). The parents/appointed guardians of the Entrants/ Eligible Children agree that any content produced may be housed on the Promoters’ websites (www.nib.co.nz or https://blues.rugby) and Social Media pages including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

When does the competition start and finish? 

10. The competition starts at 12pm on 9 April and ends at 11.59pm on 20 April 2021 (“Promotional Period”).

How are the teams picked for the nib ‘$10K Relay’ competition? 

11. All valid entries submitted via the Blues competition page will be judged based on originality and suitable use of the funds as determined by the Promoters, with the ten best entries from Eligible Clubs selected in order to participate in the nib ‘$10K Relay’. From the valid entries received during the Promotional Period, nib will select ten teams to compete in the Skill Activation. A decision on the teams that will compete in the Skills Activation will be decided on Wednesday, 21st April 2021. The Promoters’ decision is final, and no correspondence will be entered into.

12. If your Club’s entry has been selected to participate in the Skill Activation and you do not acknowledge acceptance of the selection within 3 (three) business days from the date you are notified about selection, your club’s participation in the activity will be forfeited and a new club will be selected from the remaining entries. The names of the ten clubs will be published on the Blues and/or nib website.

Delivery of the prizes and use of winner’s details 

13. The winning club will have the $10,000 cash prize deposited into the bank account they nominate by a relevant club representative. We are not responsible if the winner does not receive a prize because they have provided incorrect bank account details. Costs associated with accepting the Prize (including any bank fees, charges or taxes) must be paid by the winning club.

14. Acceptance of the Prize by the winning club means that the club consents for nib to use their details and photos for promotional and media publicity purposes, including on the nib NZ and Blues Facebook pages, without compensation.

Our rights 

15. We reserve the right to require an entrant and/or winner to provide proof of identity (including a team member’s identity and age) and/or proof of compliance with any eligibility requirements and these terms and conditions.

16. We can, in our sole discretion, disqualify any entry or refuse to award the Prize to a club that, in our opinion who has not complied with these terms and conditions, tampered with the entry process or has gained an unfair advantage in any way or has won through fraud.
