With the help of Play Fund Win, Herefordshire FA are hosting a digital raffle, the Herefordshire FA Club Raffle.
This special draw will provide clubs in Herefordshire a simple, free fundraising tool to allow them to raise funds which offset the cost of running the clubs and further encourage participation in sport. Those taking part have the chance to win the jackpot prize which starts at £1,000 and increases with every entry received amongst other prizes.
The draw sees 50% of each entry fee donated to the club which the raffle entrant selects, with the remainder contributing towards two prize pots. The draw will take place on December 23rd, providing entrants with a chance to win a great cash jackpot this Christmas, and allowing a full month for clubs to promote and benefit from the raffle.
When entering the draw, those purchasing their tickets will be asked to select the grassroots club or club foundation they want to benefit from their entry and that club will receive 50% of that entry fee, which equates to £2.50 of the £5 entry fee. The remaining 50% builds up to form the club’s prize pot, the County-wide prize pot (which starts at £1,000 and increases with every entry received) and covers the operating cost of staging the draw. Entry is a simple process, visit playfundwin.com/HerefordshireFA and select the club to benefit from the raffle entry fee.
A percentage of the proceeds received in the draw will also go directly to Herefordshire FA’s charity partner SSAFA – The Armed Forces Charity. Those entering the draw are free to select the charity as their nominated beneficiary rather than a club.
Clubs themselves can promote the draws across their network, using the bespoke tools which can be requested by completing this form, and making sure people select their club when they enter. The more who select a club to benefit, the more that club makes from the draw.
Grassroots football clubs can also stage their own Play Fund Win fundraising draws if they wish and continue to use our simple, licensed digital raffle platform to generate vital funds to help run their clubs.

On the launch of the partnership, Alan Darfi, Chief Executive Officer, Herefordshire FA, stated, “As we approach Christmas, I would strongly encourage everyone across the game to get behind this initiative. With a guaranteed cash of a minimum of £1,000 and with 50% of all entry fees going directly to the Club that you choose, what is there to lose!’’
