The Saints Planet League Cup. Tournament Terms & Conditions

The Saints Planet League tournament (“Tournament”) is open to all UK residents who are supporters of Southampton Football Club and aged 16 or over, or those who are under the age of 16 with parental permission. It is assumed that entrants under the age of 18 have received parental consent to sign up for the Tournament and accept these terms and conditions.

To participate in the Tournament, participants must create an account on the Planet League platform, choose from a series of activities available on the platform, and upload a photograph which evidences them completing the selected activity. Participants can complete as many activities as they like to score more goals and climb the league table.

All photographs submitted for goal-scoring purposes will be reviewed by Planet League's "VAR" system, which will check for authenticity. Goals which are not authentic or for which photographs are uploaded that are deemed inappropriate (by Planet League in its absolute discretion) will not be counted towards the participant's score.

Members of staff from Southampton FC (Southampton Football Club Limited, company number 00053301) and its group or associated companies, Utilita or Planet League (or anyone else connected with the tournament) can take part in the Tournament, but are not eligible to win any prizes offered in the tournament.

There are prizes available for players who score the most goals during the campaign. The Tournament participant who meets the eligibility criteria set out in these Terms and Conditions (including, without limitation, clause 4) and:

has scored the most goals out of all eligible Tournament participants at the end of the Tournament will win: a Meet & Greet experience at Staplewood Training Ground (see Additional Prize T&Cs below for more details);

has scored the second most goals out of all eligible Tournament participants at the end of the Tournament will win: two hospitality tickets to a match at St Mary’s Stadium (see Additional Prize T&Cs below for more details);

has scored the third most goals out of all eligible Tournament participants at the end of the Tournament will win: a Southampton FC 2022/23 replica home shirt signed by members of the Southampton FC Men’s first team.

In the event of any ties, the relevant winner will be randomly drawn from the participants on equal goals.

Additionally, everybody who has signed up and scored at least one goal in the Tournament will be entered into a pool after the end of the Tournament, from which one winner will be drawn at random to win one £60 Gift voucher for the Southampton FC Stadium Megastore or online store. Individuals may only hold one Planet League account and multiple entries or accounts for the purposes of this prize are not permitted.

If a winner rejects their prize or the entry is invalid or in breach of these Terms and Conditions, the winner’s prize will be forfeited and Planet League shall be entitled to select another winner.

The tournament will commence at 0000 on 1st April 2023 and will end at 1159 on 22nd April 2023.

Tournament winners will be contacted by email within 5 days by Planet League. If a winner doesn’t respond then another participant will be chosen. The tournament may be suspended or cancelled at any time by Planet League, Southampton FC or Utilita without prior notice.

By participating in the tournament, participants agree to have their name and photograph used for promotional purposes by Southampton FC, Utilita or Planet League.

Participants under the age of 16 must seek parental permission to take part in the tournament, with the parent signing them up. Anybody over the age of 16 can create their own account.

The league table will be organised by the participant who has scored the most goals.

Activities on the platform have "cooldown timers" on them, which limits how many times per day, week or month a participant can complete that specific activity. Tournament participants must not seek to evade or override these limits or otherwise cheat in any way.
