The HUST Matchday 50/50 Draw is very popular and with the draw taking place at half time, is seen by fans as an key part of the home match day experience.
Tickets cost £1 with 50% coming back as prize money (after modest expenses) and the other 50% being used by HUST to purchase shares in Hereford FC. So buying two tickets allows HUST to buy one share in HFC. At the end of May 2017 HUST has purchased 110,00 shares in Hereford FC and is on target to own 289,000 by 31st March 2020.
Over the last season 2016/17 the average pay out per game was almost £900 (£425 first prize) with the highest against Winchester was five prizes totalling over £1,500 (£650 first prize).
This is an opportunity for fans who are not able to attend a home game to join in the Matchday Draw with the results announced at half time on Radio Hereford FC.
