The trip of a lifetime … and guess what, the prize just got even better!

Football fans who enter — or have already entered — the national World Cup Lottery will get an added bonus if their ticket wins a trip for two to Qatar.

The organisers have added tickets to a FOURTH game at the tournament to add more excitement to their prize.

Eight lucky winners in the lottery will get a trip for two to Doha, with return flights courtesy of Qatar Airways, with 13 nights’ accommodation and tickets to attend the following group games:

Games you’ll see are:

  • Germany v Japan
  • Costa Rica v Germany
  • Wales v Iran
  • Spain v Germany

How it works

Tickets cost $20 and are purchased online from the foundation.

When you buy your ticket, you get the chance to nominate a participating club or school and they get $10 of the purchase price.

You can choose FRIENDS OF FOOTBALL if you wish to show your support for us, and to encourage what we do for the football community.

The funds raised will be put back into football through our Helping Hands Fund — click here for more details >>>>

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
