Rugby World Cup competitions

Before we start, I have to admit that I’m not a rugby fan at all – but yet I found myself whooping and cheering when Japan beat South Africa at the weekend! There’s a wonderful atmosphere in England right now with the World Cup excitement – and so many opportunities for people to show their support and win fantastic prizes too!

Here are some of the most unusual RWC promotions I’ve spotted so far – as usual, I’m sharing the comps that need a bit of effort so there will be less entries! Good luck!


Find the Coca Cola RWC taxi in London on Monday 28th September and you could win one of three pairs of tickets to either South Africa vs USA at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (7th October) or Australia vs Wales at Twickenham Stadium (10th October). Check for details – you’ll need to check the @CocaCola_GB Twitter feed on Monday to know where the taxi is!

Glaceau Water are giving away four pairs of tickets to England v Uruguay (10th October in Manchester), and to a Quarter Final (17th October at Twickenham). To enter, tweet your six word summary of either England v Wales (26th September) before 11am on 28th September, or England v Australia (3rd October) before 11am on 5th October. Terms are at and examples & FAQs are here.

Use a Mastercard to shop at an Intu shopping centre, then submit your card or receipt details at and you could win tickets to England v Australia and England v Uruguay – or a £1000 Intu gift card! This promotion ends on 31st October 2015 but there are draws before then for the tickets.

Intu also have a ‘Kick the Ball’ app – download here and play it for your chance to win more rugby tickets and intu gift cards (final closing date is 30th October). Unfortunately it’s the person at the top of the leaderboard that wins the prize in this game, so you’ll have to spend a lot of time on the game if you want to win!


If you have a Mastercard, use it at an IHG hotel and you could win more RWC tickets. Use your card, then upload a photo to Instagram or Twitter showing you supporting your team, tagged #rugbyfandom and @IHGRewardsClub. This one has a couple of hoops to jump through, explaining why there are only a handful of entries so far – but with three prizes (a pair of tickets to England vs Australia, and the two Semi Finals at Twickenham) it’s worth the effort! All the details are here.

If you’re passing through Terminal 3 at Heathrow Airport, snap a selfie with the giant Gilbert rugby ball and tweet with #Rugbyhaslanded to win semi final or final tickets. This one ends on 16th October 2015.

I bumped into a Coca Cola rep at a convenience store on Friday and he tells me that they’re distributing scratchcards to lots of pubs and a few shops, if you buy a Coke you get one and can enter online to win rugby balls or TVs – so keep an eye out for those too!

And don’t forget the Coke on-pack instant win promotion to win rugby balls too – this closes on 23rd November 2015!

If you have time to listen to the radio, I heard TalkSport give away lots of RWC tickets in a text competition today – so that’s worth tuning in to (you’ll find lots of football comps on air too).

Keep an eye on the Twitter accounts for other RWC sponsors & partners including HeinekenUK, Dove Men, LandRoverRugby, CanonUKandIE, DHLRugbyUKGilbert_Rugby, DuracellUK & ToshibaUK as they are all running competitions – some of them very short-lived! Remember you can choose to turn on mobile notifications on a Twitter account so you never miss a tweet – simply tap the settings (cog) icon and choose from the menu. Good luck!

    With the Glaceau comp, winners picked randomly or they judge the answers?

    Fantastic post. As a rugby fan I will be entering most of these. I had my first ever Twitter win with the above Glaceau competition so am off to the Australia V England match next weekend. You get a £200 preloaded master card too. Thanks again.
