Win a £100 Sports Direct Voucher in our Spot The Ball Competition

Planet Earth's biggest football competition is upon us and brings with it memories of tournaments past. Be it Gazza’s tears in Italy, Maradona’s Hand of God in Mexico, or Ronaldinho’s brilliant (or lucky) free kick sailing into David Seaman’s goal in Japan, all have a strong sense of place associated with them. Sadly, these three examples bring with them a reminder of England’s inevitable defeat in the competition. But they also bring the warmth of nostalgia and memories of the great festival atmosphere at every tournament, which springs into life every four years regardless of the host nation and, fortunately, regardless of the performance of the qualifying Home Nations.

This got us at Adventure Company HQ thinking about what else brings back golden memories for us, and why we're so passionate about the amazing places where these events take place.

Many of us remember fondly the old Spot the Ball competitions in the weekend newspapers, and all of us get excited about the destinations we visit when we look at a trip on our website for the first time. So we created a competition, not only to re-create a version of this classic sports puzzle for our Family Adventurers to play (either together or against each other – we know how competitive some families can be!), but also to encourage young and old alike to search our website for some of the amazing places we visit.

How to playSpot the ball

Every day we will place a football on one of our trip pages, similar to the one at the top of this page.  The ball will be placed on a trip that goes to one of the destinations playing that day (there will be a few red herrings, so be sure to follow us on Facebook for a few hints along the way!).

To enter the competition all you need to do is let us know the trip code for the holiday that you saw the football appear on. You can either enter the trip code here or send an email to marketing@adventurecompany.co.uk, entitled "Spot the ball competition". Please include your name, email address and the trip code.

For each correct entry, you will be entered into the draw to win a £100 Sports Direct voucher.  You can enter every day of the tournament (but only once a day) and for each correct answer you will get another entry into the draw.  So the more times you enter the better your chances of winning!
