This is your opportunity to win up to £7,000 in the Amber 500 draw!
What is it? It is a raffle. Each ticket costs £100 and can be bought individually or in syndicates. There are a maximum of 500 tickets available.
Why are we doing it? To enable the club to fund first team away travel this season in the National League. We all know how expensive it is to travel in this Division and we want to do it in such a way as gives our players the best chance to prepare properly and perform for Sutton United FC.
What could I win? The prize fund equates to 20% of the money raised from the raffle. If we sell all 500 tickets that means we have £10,000 in the prize fund and there will be three cash prizes – £7,000 for the holder of the first ticket drawn out, £2,000 for second and £1,000 for third. There are also three “money can’t buy” non-cash prizes:-
The non-cash prizes (to be drawn at half-time v Wrexham on 21st Dec)
1. Travel with the team for two people to FC Halifax Town on 15th Feb and enjoy all pre- match hospitality, including lunch and Grandstand seats, as afforded to SUFC officials.
2. We are very grateful to Matt Gray and his team for offering two people a unique “behind the scenes” insight to Matchday preparation prior to our televised match v Yeovil on 28th December 12:30pm kick off ( or an alternative match if the winners can’t make that game). Join him, his Management team and the players in the changing room 90 mins before kick-off and be a part of the pre match talks, preparation and build up to this important game which has the added attraction of being televised live on BT Sport. With Board Room hospitality also offered as part of this prize, watch the match from the centre section of the grandstand and then help conduct the “Strikers are Key” draw after the match and don the gold jacket. A varied and unique prize!
3. Something a bit different. Again for two people. Immerse yourself in, and be a part, of the “World of Entertainment” both close to home and away from Gander Green Lane. Choose a match in 2020 to join the SUFCTV team on the gantry and maybe help out with the live commentary and get a unique “bird’s eye view” of the game. It’s great up there! Then, see the chart-topping band Ash (‘Goldfinger’, ‘Girl from Mars’, ‘Burn Baby Burn’) at the Roundhouse on 27 March 2020 as part of the ‘Teenage Wildlife – 25 years of Ash’ tour, including exclusive access to the Soundcheck before the gig as well as signed merchandise.
The cash prizes (to be drawn at half-time during the match v Woking on 1st Jan)
The big cash prize draws will be made on New Year’s Day when 20% of all funds raised will be won. So; if we sell all 500 tickets, and we really would ask that everyone gets involved so that we do just that, then one ticket holder or syndicate will walk away with £7,000 and two others with £2,000 and £1,000 respectively.
