On every matchday at Villa Park, the Fifty50 draw provides supporters with a chance to win cash prizes while also aiding the club’s work in the local community via the Supporting Our Own initiative.
The jackpot is split evenly between one lucky winner and the Aston Villa Foundation, who use the money to fund community projects and support various charities.
Local charities, voluntary organisations and sports clubs in and around Birmingham are among the worthy causes that receive help through Supporting Our Own, which is the club’s corporate social responsibility strategy.
Supporters play their part in ensuring the continued success of the Foundation’s work by purchasing Fifty50 tickets on game day around Villa Park or buying online here.
The website offers supporters an opportunity to sign up to a subscription service to make sure they never miss a draw, with the added incentive of a ‘second chance draw’ that gives subscribers a chance to win unique Aston Villa prizes.
Adding another element to Fifty50, second and third place prizes will be awarded for selected matchday draws during the season.
The winner will be announced on the scoreboard at the end of the half-time interval, on the club website and on the Foundation’s social media.
Winning ticket holders should call 0121 327 2299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim their prize.
