Some of you may have noticed a change to the name and style of tickets of our half-time draw at home games.
This is down to a partnership between the club and 5050 Central Ltd to provide a new lottery draw, hopefully allowing more and more fans to enter.
The agreement is 5050 Central’s first partnership with a European football club and second with a European client.
All fans attending matches at Deepdale can purchase 50/50 raffle tickets using 5050 Central’s industry leading real-time electronic system. The winner of the draw will take home half of the proceeds, while the other half will support various charitable endeavours including the Preston North End Community and Education Trust.
5050 Central boasts some of sports' most iconic brands as clients, with partners across the sports landscape including MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA and MLS.
Andy Haythornthwaite, the Trust manager, said: “We are delighted to benefit from this new partnership between the club and 5050 Central Ltd.
“The half-time 5050 lottery has been a part of Preston North End for a very long time and this new industry leading opportunity will hopefully provide even more chances for the clubs supporters to win and benefit community projects in their locality at the same time.”
