How the lottery helps football

Clubs and schools are participating in the lottery which is the biggest national fundraiser ever by our sport.

The bold initiative is being promoted by the New Zealand Football Foundation in an effort to unite the football community, including about 400 clubs and schools, in a three-month effort to raise funds.

Participating clubs and schools have the potential to raise up to $900,000 between them.

The plan is to run a nationwide lottery with prizes comprising of double passes for the World Cup in Doha, Qatar, in November/December.

Clubs and schools can still join the project by emailing
