All-Star competitions: free chance to win £200

There are only a few days to go until the SOLD-OUT ESPN NI All-Star game and the event team are excited to provide all of those fortunate enough to get a ticket an entertaining and fun day for all the family: free face-painting, free prize giveaways, hip-hop dancers, a tuck shop, exclusive Danny Kingsberry merchandise, and heaps of competitions.

During the breaks in the game, two of the very best (PeacePlayers’ Joanne Fitzpatrick & Darryl Petticrew) will be working with the Ulster Elk’s super-cool mascot, Elkman, to run competitions for our younger fans. We will also be running an exciting ‘mini-shot’ competition, for a chance to win some excellent prizes. And, for our older fans [Editor: No offense], we will be running a half-court shot competition. Details of these two great competitions are listed below:



Every ticket for today’s event includes free entry into the draw for our half-court shot competition.

If your ticket number is drawn from the jar at half-time, you will be given the opportunity to win Nike vouchers worth up to £50 or a £200 cash prize.

All you have to do is make ONE shot. Simply choose which type of shot you would like to attempt, and sink it to claim the prize.


                        Free-throw:                         £25 Nike voucher

                        3-point shot:                      £50 Nike voucher

                        HALF-COURT SHOT:           £200 CASH 




Purchase a mini-basketball from TCC’s event team members for just £1 to enter our prize giveaway competition. You can purchase up to five mini-balls.

Every mini-basketball purchased from TCC will be individually numbered and serve as your basketball ‘raffle’ ticket.

An array of exclusive prizes will be laid out on court during the half-time show. When the announcer gives the signal, you can throw your ball on court and try to land it on top of the prize you most desire.

The closest ball to each individual item will win that prize.
