Ready, Set, Go: The National Draw 2016/17 is here!

  • Oct 19,2016

This year, Basketball Ireland is once more making the National Draw available to all clubs to use as a fundraiser.

Following on from the success of last year, which saw over €138,000 in funds generated for all clubs that participated (on top of the €112,000 raised in Year One), it is hoped that this year's draw will be even more successful.  

How it works: 

Your team/club/committee/organisation orders the tickets from Basketball Ireland - these tickets are essentially in the form of raffle tickets and are free of charge. 

Your team/club/committee/organisation sells them and you keep 90% of the intake, returning 10% to us for certain costs relating to the production of this venture.

For example:  If your club sells a full book of 20 tickets at a cost of €5 per ticket, that would generate €100. Your team would keep €90 and return €10 to us.

Basketball Ireland provides all of the prizes to include a car, weekend trips to New York, Paris, London, a Super T.V, a set of four family bikes and a Bluetooth Speaker. We also provide free promotional posters to help each seller or club advertise the draw.

The Guidelines:

All tickets sold or unsold must be returned.

If you do not return any unsold tickets - or tickets are lost – you are liable for 10% of each ticket lost/unreturned (0.50c per ticket). There is no penalty once unsold tickets are returned.

These tickets are available for collection and should be ordered by e-mail before collection date of your choice. 

Tickets can be ordered at any time. For those not in an immediate rush, we also send them out free of charge.

When ordering, please carefully consider the amount you expect to sell, as all 50,000 tickets available for this draw have the potential to be sold and we would hate for anybody to miss out on this fundraising opportunity while tickets aren’t being sold elsewhere.

We can only deal with one representative from each club/ organisation at all times on this, so that person will be the point of contact for your club. Each ticket has a serial number which will be documented and should also be documented by that person.

The draw will be taking place at the National League Finals in April 2017. 

All tickets need to be returned by March 17th, 2017 and each team will be liable for all tickets unreturned by that date. There will be no leeway given.
