Win A Summer Holiday in Abu Dhabi!


This January, you and a friend could be off to Abu Dhabi, the home of Etihad Airways. One lucky fan at Sunday’s match will win a trip for two to the UAE capital for 5 nights.

Flying economy class with Etihad Airways, the winner will relax inflight and choose from 750 hours of on-demand entertainment to watch on their personal touch screen TV.

Upon arrival in Abu Dhabi, you will be met and chauffeured to your hotel – the luxurious Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal – where you will experience European elegance blended with Middle Eastern tradition. This 5-star hotel is set amidst beautifully landscaped gardens, fountains and Venetian-inspired buildings.
