HUST CONTINUE WITH THE 50/50 DRAW “ONLINE” TO SUPPORT HEREFORD FC
As a result of government advice; the National League has suspended all games until at least 3rd April 2020. In practice there could be no more home games before the current season was due to end.
With the prospect of no football revenue and a mountain of outgoings to be paid, now is the time to get behind our Club and support HUST in its efforts to maintain the stability of Hereford Football Club.
Whilst there are no physical matches, HUST will continue with a COVID-19 ONLINE 50/50 Draw every Saturday during the suspension of the National League.
THANK YOU to everyone who entered the first one on Saturday March 21st 2020. The winners were announced on Radio HFC and posted on Social Media.
We are continuing for the time being with another Draw next week and the first Saturday in April 2020….
There are TWO options:
Covid-19 = Enter ONE DRAW ONLY – Saturday 11th April 2020 (Game 24 – Home to Chester)
COVID-19 DOUBLE = Enter TWO DRAWS – Easter Saturday 11th April 2020 PLUS Bank Holiday Monday 13th April 2020. (Games 24 + 25 – Away to Brackley Town)
As there will be no physical tickets we propose a slightly different procedure for the draw.
- Closing time for purchase of tickets will be the the normal kick off time for the game – 3pm on THE DAY OF THE DRAW
- In order to allow this, there will be notification email from Mailchimp with your ticket number for the draw.
- As usual, prize pool will be 50% of the draw income
- We will announce the winner on Radio Hereford FC and on social media at what would have been Half Time.
- HUST will notify Online winners by Email there will be no need to make a claim. So even if you cannot listen to Radio Hereford FC you can still participate.
- The prize money will be paid through Paypal within ten working days of the game
- This is currently a manual process so please allow enough time and buy your tickets early, ahead of each Draw.
- To be able to make a payment through Paypal in order to buy your Matchday Draw Tickets. This is easy to do and can be done using a debit or credit card. You just need a valid Email address and your Paypal account is created. Having a Paypal account enables us to contact you by Email to confirm you have winning ticket and pay your prize money. There is a small cost of using Paypal which we have had included in online the ticket price.
We are never going to be able to match the stellar success of the combined matchday and online draw. This season, at our 20 games so far, we have paid out £12,350 in prize money, equivalent to £617 per game. Of that £980 has be won by online subscribers. But we feel it is important to give it a try!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
