How the Sports Club Lottery Works

Every amateur sports club can raise money from a lottery to help generate extra money to help them grow. But running a lottery is time consuming and has to be done properly. Sports Club Lottery allows clubs to raise money, with all of the administration taken care of and guarantees 50p in every £1 spent will go to the club you choose to support – To put that in context, the National lottery gives just 28p in every £1 to good causes.

  • Money directly supports your club.

  • You could win £25,000

  • 50p in every £1 will go straight to your club
