BUFC 50s Club

The BUFC 50s Club is a private lottery open to all players, supporters, parents, carers, sponsors and friends of Ballynahinch United. It is a great way for you to have a bit of a flutter whilst also supporting us.

By joining our 50s Club you will help to fund equipment, resources, developments, donations and club running costs for BUFC.

How it works

Complete and sign the 50s Club Membership and Payment Method forms. Choose to pay £10 a month (£120 total) by standing order, online bank transfer, cash upfront or cheque. This buys you one membership number (we will allocate), which enters you into our monthly draw. All participants must be over 16.

You can email your completed form to ballynahinchunited@hotmail.com, send to us via Facebook messenger or leave it to The Millbridge during home matches.


What you’ll win

The prize money will be 50% of the total membership fee taken that month. The remaining 50% goes to Ballynahinch United Football Club to help fund equipment, resources, developments, donations and club running costs. The prizes for August 2019, December 2019 and May 2020 will be higher with a percentage of the total membership fee taken each month added. Prize money may vary due to new members.

If you win, BUFC will arrange payment with you using the details provided on your membership application. We will contact you within one week of the draw result. The name and winning membership number for each month will be posted on our website or social media. Where possible, the draw will be broadcast online.
