I have the following long sentence :

If one of those promotions has a name that matches xxx, ...

I would rather write it shortly :

If one of those' name matches xxx, ...

My question is : what to put after the 'those' and is it even a correct formulation ?

There can be only one promotion at a time that matches xxx.

Note : I'm French, so many questions remains for me concerning English...

    Questions like this from non-native speakers are not appropriate here. (I see you have 3 close votes already, and I'd add one if I had not reached my daily limit). Try SE English Language Learners. – David Jul 13 '17 at 19:46

You can't put apostrophe to 'those'. It has to be: "If one of those promotions' name matches...."
