Terms & Conditions

The Who Competition Terms 10-20 Feb 2017

Terms and Conditions:

 1. Full terms and conditions apply. The following rules (“Specific Rules”) together with the general competition terms and conditions (which can be found at (the “Competition Terms and Conditions”) of Communicorp UK (as defined in the Competition Terms and Conditions) apply to win with The Who competition (the “Competition") which will run from Friday 10th February to Monday 20th February 2017 on XS Manchester (the “Radio Station”).

 2. Key Dates. Start Date and time: Friday 10th February 201 at 0600 – Monday 20th February 2017 at 1000. Any entries received before / after these dates won’t be counted but you may still be charged.

 3. Restrictions. Only open to people who: (i) at the time of entry are UK residents, and (ii) are 18 years or over at the date of their entry.

 4. Entry and how much it costs. Identify the title of the song from The Who as asked on-air by the presenter(s). Send a text message starting with the word WHO, followed by the missing part of the song title to 87711 (E.g. WHO BABA if the question was “complete the title of the song something O’Reilly”). Texts cost £1.50 (from the UK) plus standard network rate. You must have permission from the bill payer before sending. Entries are limited to twenty (20) per person excluding bonus entries. For the avoidance of doubt; incorrect answers will be charged but not entered into the draw.

 5. Bounce-backs and bonus entries. Once you’ve sent an entry text, you’ll receive an auto-response confirming your entry. You will then have the chance to text: WHO to 87711, again (at a further cost of £1.50 plus standard network rate) and you will be entered 2 more times - your ‘3rd’ entry being free. You will only be included in the prize draw if your text entry has had a corresponding bounceback confirming mobile network receipt of your text.

 6. Draw details and winner announcement. Shortly after the deadline for receipt of entries, and no more than 5 hours later, one winner will be selected by electronic random draw from all the qualifying entries. They will be contacted personally (as soon as possible and at least within 5 days of the end date; if we are unable to make contact with the winner after 5 days, the prize becomes forfeit and we will select a new winner who we will attempt to contact for five days, and repeat this process until we have been able to contact a winner) and also announced at the earliest opportunity. With the intention for this to be just after 5pm on the day the contest closes.

7. Prize details. Two GA tickets to The Who at Manchester Arena on 5 April 2017. A double room at The Hilton Manchester Deansgate for 2 people sharing on the night on 5 April 2017. Our prizes are always non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

 8. Data Protection. By entering the competition, you are automatically consenting to receiving marketing communications from us via SMS text message. You can opt out of this at any time by texting: STOP to 87711. This will be charged at your standard network rate but you will need to do this each time you text us to enter the competition. Your personal data will (regardless of whether you opt-out) always be used to process your entry. For further information on this, please see our general terms (link below) and our privacy policy at:

9. Recording consents. We will sometimes (at our discretion) telephone entrants
