The Dundee United Development Association is pleased to announce the launch of a virtual 50/50 Matchday Draw today.
Housed on a new website which also accommodates the United Futures Lottery, the rebranded Elite 50/50 Matchday Draw is an appeal to United fans to continue to support the Club’s renowned Youth Development as Our Academy strives to uphold its newly earned Elite status in the extremely tough climate of COVID-19.
The new virtual footing ushers the traditional 50/50 into the modern age and will run on all First Team matchdays, home and away, including week nights, whether you can be at the game or not!!! And to get off the ground at the earliest opportunity, the first draw will be this Saturday 11 July at 3.45pm. It has also been decided to donate 10% of the 50/50 proceeds to the Club’s charity DUCT, allowing them to support the local community during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
To mark the occasion of the launch, the United Futures Lottery is offering an extra bonus prize double for its draw on Friday 10th July. Not only will the jackpot of £2,000 be a "must be won", but there will also be the chance of an Adult Season Ticket for 20/21 (or a credit for 21/22).
Please play your part in supporting Our Academy and the wider United family by playing the Lottery and engaging in this new online version of the traditional half-time draw at Tannadice.
Please watch a video message from Academy Director Andy Goldie in which he sets out the importance of the new 50/50 and Lottery draw funds for the development of our young players.
