Sponsor, at its sole discretion, may choose an alternate potential winner from among all remaining eligible Entries for the applicable Participating Team Drawing.
Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, and once all required Sweepstakes Documents have been correctly completed and received from the potential winner, per these Official Rules, the potential winner shall become an official winner for the Sweepstakes.
