Countdown … get your World Cup Lottery ticket before end of September

posted in: News

Organisers of football’s national World Cup Lottery are urging clubs and supporters to get behind the fundraising project as it enters its last few weeks.

Sales of the $20 lottery close on September 30, with the big prize draw a day later.

From every $20 ticket sold, the buyer chooses which club/school they want to benefit by receiving $10.

With three weeks to go, the organisers, the NZ Football Foundation, have shared some practical tips on how clubs can sell more tickets, including:

  • Taking the opportunity at prizegivings to explain the lottery and encourage supporters to buy tickets.
  • Asking business sponsors to share the lottery information on their intranets and to purchase tickets for their staff.
  • Ask youth members to encourage their grandparents to purchase to support their club (remember here they can gift the prize if they win and don’t wish to travel).
  • Ask every club member to commit to buying or selling just one. Can you be the first club throughout New Zealand to say every member supports your club?

Countdown to your last chance to buy a ticket

The prizes

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:

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.
