Imagine you've just won Nova's First Class and $50k and that you and your mates love sports. You live, breathe and eat sports, and now you have four first class flights and $50k to take you to any sporting event in the world. Here are five of the world's greatest, and most iconic, sporting events.
5. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)
With live UFC banned in Victoria and it only coming to Australia once a year, what better excuse to jet off to the UK to see a first class fight card in the flesh? The mixed martial arts company is the biggest in the world of its kind and is quickly becoming the most popular martial arts code in the world. On September 20 UFC will invade England, and if you win Nova's First Class and $50k you could be taking three mates, and buying some of the best tickets in town with your $50k.
4. US Open
Remember that feeling of euphoric relief as Sam Stosur won the US Open in 2011? She stopped choking, realized her potential and brought home Australia's first Grand Slam win since 2001. Streets were lined with fans and she was met with a heroes welcome as she came home. Now, imagine if you were there to see her defend her title at this year's US Open? You could be there, cheering her on as she attempts to do what no Aussie has done since... She did... Last year.
3. NBA Playoffs
After the 2011-12 NBA season almost didn't happen due to the lockout, this year's NBA Playoffs have been the most anticipated in history. With LeBron James on the verge of taking home the ring he sold his soul for (are we allowed to say that?) the scene's already set for an even bigger 2012-13 NBA season. And if you win Nova's First Class or $50k, you could at next year's playoffs seeing some of the greatest athletes in the world duke it out in front of you.
2. Tour de France
Cadel Evans sent Australia into hysterics when he became the first Australian in history to win the Tour de France, with Prime Minister Julia Gillard declaring, "I do want to say a very big congratulations to Cadel Evans. I had the opportunity this morning to speak and to personally offer my congratulations. I believe I disturbed him while he was trying to get a nice, hot bath." You won't make it over to see Evans defend his title this year, but you could be there in 2013. It's only 13 short months away - mark it in your calendars!
1. The Ashes
It was heartbreaking when Australia lost The Ashes to England last year, and you can bet the Aussie test team will be hungry for a series wipe out when they head to the UK next year to win them back. Imagine being at Lord's as Pup leads his men onto the field the defend our country's honour - glorious.
