  • Two tickets to a football match in Barcelona
  • Seven nights’ accommodation at a four star hotel for you and a guest
  • $800 in travel expenses (paid in cash to your PokerStars account)
  • Free entry to a €2150 EPT Barcelona Festival side event of your choice

  • One person in the audience will be randomly selected to play heads-up poker against Neymar Jr. If you are selected and win you’ll walk away with a free 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) package worth over $10,000!

Please Note: The date of winners’ packages will be any seven days between August 15-30, depending on Neymar Jr’s schedule and filming of The Duel. Winning players will be notified of which seven days they will need to book travel for, within the specified time period, no later than July 31.

How to play in the $100,000 Neymar Jr Finals

There are several ways to secure your ticket for the Neymar Jr Finals and play for more than $100,000 in prizes. Read on for more details.

Neymar Jr fans & followers: Every Wednesday from June 10-July 29 at 14:00 ET, we are hosting special $1,000 Neymar Jr Freerolls. At 14:15 ET (15 minutes into each Freeroll) we will award two randomly chosen tables - including up to 18 players - tickets for the next Neymar Jr Final.

There is no deposit required and all you need to play is a PokerStars account and a Freeroll password. The password for the freerolls will be posted on Neymar Jr’s Facebook and Twitter feeds on June 10, so if you are not already following the Barcelona star, make sure you interact with him on social media now! 

Neymar Jr 11 Missions: You can also earn a seat to each Neymar Jr Final by completing ‘Neymar Jr 11 Missions’. There are four Missions Periods - one for each of the Neymar Jr Finals - and in each period, you must complete 11 simple tasks in consecutive order to earn your free Neymar Jr Final ticket.

As soon as you complete a task in sequence, the next one will become available. When you have completed the full Mission of 11 tasks, you will be credited with a ticket to the $100,000 Neymar Jr Final.
