Zavvi has apologised to shoppers after inadvertently emailing customers telling them they had won a VIP trip to watch the Champions League final in Madrid.

The online retailer blamed a “technical glitch” for the email, which may have been sent to its entire subscriber list.

Zavvi was holding a competition, in partnership with Mastercard, which offered two adults an all-expenses-paid two-night trip to the Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs.

The supposed winners who were contacted received an email which addressed them by name and told them they had won the prize.
