The revolutionary digital raffle platform that makes fundraising simple for
sports clubs, events and charities

Grassroots Sports Teams

Raising funds to offset operating costs and encourage participation in sport.

Example:

Rotherham Town Juniors FC (RTJFC)

  • RTJFC have 11 teams, ranging from under 7s, to under 17s.
  • The club has 165 members.
  • Draws are staged at every home game with tickets costing £2 to enter.
  • Total entries = c250 entries per draw
    (including family, friends and opposition).
  • Total money retained by RTJFC = c£212.50.
  • Total prize money won per draw = c£212.50.

If the club stage 26 draws a year, they would raise £5,525 from Play Fund Win which is enough to cover all pitches, referees, U11s, nets and the majority of new kits.

Professional Teams

Raising funds for the club's charitable foundation or junior academy.

Example:

Manchester United

  • Manchester United's average home attendance is c70,000 at every match.
  • In this example 20% of the crowd purchase a £5 ticket for a draw staged at half time.
  • Total entries = c14,000.
  • Total money retained by Manchester United Foundation. = c£32,375.
  • Total prize money won by somebody in the Stadium = c£32,375.

If the club stages 19 draws a year (at all Premier League home games), they would raise £565,250 from Play Fund Win per season... and that is just from people in the stadium. With the global reach of Manchester United their entries-per-draw could be significantly higher.

Example:

Ed Sheeran Tour

  • Ed Sheeran's 2018 UK tour was attended by 1,000,000 people.
  • He played 20 nights in 6 cities (avg. 50,000 per night).
  • In this example, a draw is staged each night with each entry being £10. 25% of attendees purchase a ticket.
  • Ed will nominate a local charity of his choice. The chosen charity will be the beneficiaries of that nights funds raised.
  • Total entries per night - 12,500 (total revenue per night - £125,000).
  • Prize won by somebody in the stadium, per night - £53,125.
  • Funds raised for Ed's charities, per night - £53,125.
  • Total funds raised for Ed's charities across the tour
    - £1,062,500.
