BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its Battle of the Ballers sweepstakes, Verizon FiOS will send one lucky winner and a guest to London to see a Barclays Premier League soccer match. The social promotion and sweepstakes, a collaboration between Verizon FiOS and ESPN Deportes, launched on Aug. 11 and will be hosted on Verizon's bilingual, bicultural Facebook page, SomosVerizonFiOS. FiOS customers can view the games on TV from the comfort of their homes by watching ESPN Deportes (in Spanish) or on ESPN (in English) as well as on their computer, tablet or smartphone with WatchESPN, starting Aug.18.

The grand prize will feature a trip for two to London and tickets to a Barclays Premier League match of the winner's choosing. Participants can register for the sweepstakes once a day from Aug. 11 to Sept. 5, for a total of 26 times. Before registering for the grand prize, participants will be shown two players from opposing teams and asked to choose which team they believe will win. They'll be able to comment further on why they made a particular choice. The grand-prize winner will be chosen at random on Sept. 6. In addition, there will be weekly prizes, such as ESPN-branded blankets, soccer scarves, soccer balls and a 16 GB Apple iPad.

The Battle of the Ballers sweepstakes consists of an online-only, random-draw sweepstakes. Sweepstakes registration, as well as complete rules and regulations, can be found at .

"Whether you win this contest and get to go to London, or watch the games on FiOS TV, you'll have nearly the same experience," said Oscar Madrid, Verizon's multicultural marketing director.  "That's because FiOS TV's unmatched picture quality will make you feel like you're sitting right in the stadium."
