MLS Saturday took on a whole different look during #RivalryWeek, with a full day of programming on NBC and the NBC Sports Network that included, “The Breakaway,” a Red Zone style production that focused on every match played on #RivalryDay. All the action kicked at 12:30pm ET and ran until about 10:30pm ET.
To top it all off, we partnered with NBC to put together a Watch and Win contest, where fans had the opportunity to win a 2013 MLS Club scarf of his/her choice.
Here’s how it worked. On Saturday, @MLS tweeted a trivia question about each game. Fans who answered the questions using the appropriate hashtag were entered into a random drawing to select a winner.
UPDATE: Below are the the winners of the NBC Watch and Win contest:
