The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations. Void outside Territory, and where prohibited or restricted by law, rule or regulation.
HOW TO ENTER: The Sweepstakes begins at 12:01 a.m. PST on 8/2/2023 and ends at 11:59 pm PST on 8/25/23 (“Entry Period”). During the Entry Period, there are two (2) ways to enter the Sweepstakes (as detailed below). No other method(s) of entry will be accepted.
There is a limit of only one (1) entry per person (i.e., per registered user of TikTok if entering via TikTok, or per email address if entering via mail-in method). Multiple entries received from the same registered user of TikTok and/or same email address in excess of the stated limitation (1) will be void. In case of multiple entries received from the same registered user of TikTok and/or email address, only the first entry received from such registered user will be considered.
1. TikTok: During the Entry Period, in order to enter the Sweepstakes, you will need to be a registered user of TikTok. Registration is free and can be done by visiting http://tiktok.com.
During the Entry Period, entrants will need to log into TikTok and then visit the Northgate Market TikTok page (http://www.tiktok.com/@northgatemarket) Northgate Market (@northgatemarket) | TikTok and follow the instructions provided to fully complete and submit the official entry form. If an entrant uses their mobile phone to access TikTok, standard data fees may apply. See your wireless provider for pricing plan details.
As indicated on the Northgate Market TikTok page, there are 2 different video challenges to be completed by each entrant as instructed on that page:
Challenge 1: Entrants will record themselves pretending to make salsa, dipping a chip into the salsa and then taking a bite of the chip while chanting “Oh Ah Ah” (a popular chant of the fans of the Los Angeles Football Club); or
Challenge 2: Entrants will need to appear inside a Northgate Gonzalez Market by the Carniceria Department and record themselves performing a “Grito”.
After completing their videos, entrants will need (i) to upload their videos as directed on the Northgate Market TikTok page with the hashtag “#NorthgateSays” and entrants will also need to “follow” (ii) the Northgate Market TikTok page and (iii) the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) TikTok page.
By submitting their completed videos and all other requested information as directed, an entrant will then receive one (1) entry in the Sweepstakes. Entrants must fully complete and submit all non-optional data as may be requested on TikTok and the Northgate Market website (https://www.northgatemarket.com) to be eligible. Incomplete entries are void. Entrants to the Sweepstakes may be given the option to receive commercial e-mails from MLS Entities; however, eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes is not dependent upon Entrant’s consent to receive such e-mails and consenting to do so will not increase your chances of winning.
In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of a Winner based on a registered user of TikTok, the winning entry will be declared made by the “Authorized Account Holder” of the TikTok account at the time the entry was submitted provided he/she is eligible according to these Official Rules. The “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person to whom the applicable TikTok account is registered to. Sponsor reserves the right to modify these Official Rules for clarification purposes without materially affecting the terms and conditions of the Sweepstakes.
2. Mail-in Method: During the Entry Period, you may enter the Sweepstakes by hand-printing your complete name, address, city, state and zip code, day and evening telephone number (including area code), date of birth and e-mail address on a 3”x5” postcard and mailing it in an envelope with proper postage affixed to: DREAM EXPERIENCE, 1201 N. MAGNOLIA AVENUE, ANAHEIM, CA 92801. Sponsor may use e-mail addresses provided via the mail-in entry method (as applicable) for prize notification purposes only; however, eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes is not dependent upon entrant’s provision of this information. Mail-in entries must be postmarked by August 25, 2023 and received by Sponsor by September 1, 2023 to be eligible. Mail-in entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be returned.

All mail-in entries must include a valid e-mail address for the entrant. If only one entry per person is permitted, in case of multiple entries received from any person or e-mail address or household, only the first entry received from such person, e-mail address or household will be considered. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of a Winner based on an e-mail address, the winning entry will be declared made by the “Authorized Account Holder” of the e-mail address submitted at the time of entry provided he/she is eligible according to these Official Rules. The “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person to whom the applicable Internet service provider or other organization (such as a business or educational institution) has assigned the e-mail address for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Sponsor reserves the right to modify these Official Rules for clarification purposes without materially affecting the terms and conditions of the Sweepstakes.
This Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with TikTok. You are providing your information to Sponsor and not to TikTok.
RANDOM DRAWING: The potential winner(s) of the Sweepstakes (each a “Winner” and collectively, the “Winners”) will be selected by random drawing on or about September 2, 2023 from among all eligible entries received by the Sponsor. The decisions of Sponsor are final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.
