Match day 50/50 draw raises nearly £15k for the club

The same amount given away in prize money

13 June 2018

Exeter City's 2017/18 match day 50/50 draw raised a grand total of £14,960 for the club, with the same amount being given away as prize money!

On match days, a team of sellers from the Supporters Club tour the stadium before the games kick off, selling draw tickets to supporters for 50p each.

The draw then takes place on the pitch at half-time, with one lucky ticket-holder claiming the jackpot of half the winnings, with the other half being donated to the club.

The largest total raised last season was at the Emirates FA Cup third round match against West Bromwich Albion in January where a prize fund of £1845.66 was split between the club and the lucky winner. 

A number of our winners this season have shown exceptional levels of generosity too, by donating a portion of their takings to the club by giving to the youth academy or other causes.

Huge thanks to the sellers for their hard work in raising funds for the club and for helping to create a bumper jackpot for one winner at every match!

Thank you to everyone who took part this season, and well done to all the winners.
