Play for a Chance to Meet Neymar Jr

Play for a Chance to Meet Neymar Jr

Friday, 12 June 2015

PokerStars' recent association with football is now starting to pay dividends for fans of both games thanks to a new promotion involving Neymar Jr.

Launched this week and stocked with $100,000-worth of value, the deal will essentially give 12 players the opportunity to fly out to Barcelona, take part in an EPT side event and meet football star, Neymar.

To encourage as many people to sign-up as possible, the "Neymar Jr Finals" will be open to both freeroll and real money grinders courtesy of two entry points.

1. Every Wednesday from June 10 until July 29 at 14:00 ET, players can take part in a series of special $1,000 Neymar Jr Freerolls which will reward 18 players, with tickets for the next Neymar Jr Final.

Entry to the freerolls is via a password published on Neymar Jr's Facebook and Twitter feeds.

2. Players can also earn a seat to each Neymar Jr Final by completing 'Neymar Jr 11 Missions'. There are four mission periods and in each a player must complete 11 simple tasks in consecutive order to earn a free ticket to the $100,000 Neymar Jr Final ticket.

Players that earn a ticket for one of the four $100,000 Neymar Jr Finals will then sit down at 13:15 ET on Thursday, June 18, July 2, July 16 or July 30 and battle for one of the prize packages. Each finale will have a range of exclusive prizes added to it, including three prize packages to meet Neymar and play at the EPT in Barcelona. Not only that, but to top it all off, one of the 12 lucky grinders that makes it through to Barcelona will also win a chance to play Neymar heads-up for a $15,000 trip to the PCA.

Chosen at random during the meet-and-greet, the player will battle against the footballer and, if victorious, win a seat in the $10,000 PCA as well as accommodation and spending money.
