The contestants who answer all the questions correctly automatically go into a pool with the grand prize winner getting a brand new truck or SUV, which will be given away at the soccer match in front of tens of thousands of excited fans. This campaign adds another dimension to soccer fans' ability to connect with their favorite teams in a way that is fun and entertaining, with a chance to win great prizes.
