The winners of each league on team blogs will receive a $100 MLS Gear gift certificate and the second and third-place winners will receive a 2014 subscriptions to MLS Live (a $59.99 value). The winner of the SBNation.com league will receive two Category 1 tickets to a 2014 match of the winner's choice (need to determine cash value). The next five highest scores will receive a 2014 MLS Live subscription. A winner is responsible for paying any applicable income taxes and any and all other costs and expenses not listed above. Any prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. A prize may not be transferred and must be accepted as awarded. You may not request cash or a substitute prize; however, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
