Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions in Italy. In fact, it probably wouldn’t be unfair to say that it is one of the most beautiful regions in Europe. Those who visit for the first time are often blown away by what they see.
A Chance to Win an Amazing Trip to Florence
Florence is the capital of the region of Tuscany, and for good reason too. This elegant and picturesque city is considered to be the home of the Renaissance and there is plenty to see and do here. No trip to the Tuscany region of Italy is complete until you have walked around this wonderful city.
If you are a cricket fan that frequents Lord’s regularly, then you could find yourself winning a 4-day trip to Florence where you and three friends will stay in an amazing villa. All expenses paid for of course. If this wasn’t enough, you will also be given £1,000 each to spend as you wish.
But why has Florence been chosen as the destination? What is the link between cricket at Lord’s and Tuscany? Well, it just so happens that the wine that they sell at the ground to the spectators comes from Italy. The MCC have a deal with a leading wine seller in Tuscany, which is why this region popped up while they were discussing what destination to have as the prize.
So How Can You Win This Amazing Prize?
Well, to start off with, it is important to note that you can only partake in this competition if you are a member of the Lord’s Cricket Club. If you are, then you are in luck. Twice a year, the MCC will choose two matches (this could be a Middlesex game or an England international match) where any members who are in attendance will be able to try and guess how many runs will be scored in the match.
If you love your cricket betting, then this probably won’t be the first time that you have tried to guess how many runs will be scored in a particular game. The more you know about cricket, the two teams involved, and the players who will be playing, the better your chances will be of winning. The MCC will send an email in advance to all members, informing them that there will be a chance to win a trip to Tuscany in the upcoming match. This gives all members the chance to sit down and do a bit of homework so that they can come up with some type of educated guess.
On the match day, when you are entering the stadium, you simply need to tell the steward that you are a member at Lord’s. They will find your name on their computer system and will ask you to give them your prediction.
At the end of the match, they will plug the amount of runs that were actually scored into the computer, and then it will pull up the person who was closest to it. They will then be called to collect their fantastic prize.
What Happens If There is a Tie Though?
If more than one person has said the same winning figure, there will be a tiebreaker out on the field. The potential winners will be asked out onto the outfield and asked to line up beside each other.
A cricket ball will be hit towards them and the aim is to catch it. If the ball is dropped, that person is out of the competition. The last person standing will win the fantastic trip to Florence. It really is as simple as that.
So, if this sounds like something that you would love to be in with a chance of winning, we highly recommend that you think about becoming a member at the home of cricket.
