50 50 Funds
November 18, 2014
What are the funds raised in the 50/50 Half Time Draw used for?
The Bristol Rovers 50/50 Match Day Draw is entitled INVESTING IN YOUTH.
Our aim is to raise as much as possible for the “extra” expenditure that might make a difference.
At the start of the season discussions between the Supporters Club EC and the Academy Manager, Tom Curtis, identified these as the primary targets for any funds raised.
TARGET 1. Provide funding to enable Academy teams of various ages to take part in competitive tournaments.
TARGET 2. Provide funding to assist with the accommodation costs of Academy recruits from outside the immediate locality.
TARGET 3. Provide funding to help with the costs of new equipment for both the Hallen and Golden Hill Academy bases.
These were approximately estimated and will be the bulk of the expected total raised this season.
If sufficient tickets are bought during the season then other targets may also be achievable.
So far this season the 50/50 Match Day draw has raised £8,238 for the Bristol Rovers Academy.
The other £8,238 has been given as prizes to supporters. 10 supporters have won the fixed second prize of £100.
The average first prize has been £724. The highest prize being £986 and the lowest is £540.
Sincere thanks to all those who regularly buy tickets. Many thanks to our sellers and the staff who administer the process.
