The lottery is run and administered by volunteer fans of Cambridge United FC as a sub group of Cambridge Fans United.
The lottery is run in association with Cambridge United Football Club.
The lottery aims to raise funds for
- fans' amenities at The Abbey stadium
- charitable purposes in the local area.
Each member is issued with a four digit lottery number.
Each week there are two draws held:
The first is for a weekly prize – currently £300.
Using a random number generator the winning four digit number is drawn.
The member holding the four digit number in the same order wins the first prize.
If there is no winner then runner-up prizes will be awarded to those members holding either the first two or last twodigits in the correct position and order.
The second draw is for the jackpot accumulator.
The jackpot is again drawn using the random number generator and, as with the weekly draw, the member holding the four digit number in the same order wins the jackpot amount.
If there is no winner the jackpot increases week by week by £50 until the maximum (currently £2500) is reached .
How much is membership and what happens to the money?
Each lottery membership costs £2.00 per week. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or bank standing order.
Payments can be made monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annually.
47.5% is paid into a Prize Fund. This fund can only be used for prizes – the greater the number of lottery memberships, the larger the prizes.
2.5% is paid into a Cost Fund. Although the lottery is run by volunteers, there are costs for licences, printing, web charges etc. Any surplus after costs is fed back into the lottery to provide, for example, additional prize draws.
35% is paid into a CUFC development fund for fan amenities in the redeveloped Abbey Stadium.
15% is paid into a Community Fund used to donate money to local charities and community activities in the Cambridge area. In the recent past the lottery has donated funds to Addenbrookes Hospital and Rowan Humberstone .
With Play2Win everyone can support both the Club and the community and have some fun whilst doing it!
Thanks for your interest and ...Good luck in the draw!
