USA. The Moodie Davitt Report is delighted to partner with Gold Bar Whiskey of San Francisco in a special readers’ competition ahead of Sunday’s showpiece American sporting event, the Super Bowl.

The grand final of the American football season – which will attract an estimated 100 million viewers in the US alone and many millions more worldwide – is a showdown at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

The two sides will do battle from 6.30pm (EST) on 2 February for the Vince Lombardi trophy, after each went on a late season winning streak. The Chiefs have won their last 11 games and are competing in their first final since 1969. The 49ers have won their last four games and are hoping for their first Super Bowl victory since 1994.

Hoping for a 49ers victory: Gold Bar is an official spirits supplier to the San Francisco-based football team, which takes on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday; one lucky reader will win 49 5cl mini bottles of Gold Bar plus a 49ers jersey

The Gold Bar Whiskey team is fervently hoping for a 49ers win. As reported, this season the brand struck an agreement to become the official whiskey of the San Francisco-based team. The ultra-premium Gold Bar collection is available in multiple locations, including at the recently opened Gold Bar Whiskey Bar on the main concourse at Levi’s Stadium, San Francisco.

In a related travel retail move, Gold Bar is building awareness in its home city with a major campaign through duty free retailer DFS at San Francisco International Airport.

To celebrate the forthcoming event, Gold Bar is offering a prize of 49 Gold Bar Whiskey 5cl minis and a San Francisco 49er jersey to the reader that guesses (or comes closest to guessing) the final score on Sunday.

The rules are simple:

  • Pick the winning team and predict a score (you must be directly connected to the travel retail industry to enter)
  • The winner must choose the correct result; if there is no correct answer, the closest entrant on points differential takes the grand prize
  • Send your prediction to Dermot@MoodieDavittReport.com headed ‘49ers v Chiefs showdown’

Deadline for entries: Sunday 2 February, 9pm UK time.
