Hereford supporters, even those whose are unable to get to Edgar Street for a home fixture, can now get more involved in the match-day experience by entering the half-time 50/50 draw.
HUST have enhanced the availability of the draw and fans can now enter on-line, with the option of a 50/50 season ticket, in addition to a 5-match and 10-match option.
The online facility is available NOW, with entries commencing from the Bulls’ opening home Evo-Stik Southern League fixture against Tiverton Town at Edgar Street on Tuesday, 15th August.
Tickets cost £1 with 50% coming back as prize money (after modest expenses) and the other 50% being used by HUST to purchase shares in Hereford FC. So buying two tickets allows HUST to buy one share in HFC. At the end of May 2017, HUST has so far purchased 110,00 shares in Hereford FC and is on track to achieve the 289,000 target by 31st March 2020.
Over the last season 2016/17 the average pay out per game was almost £900 (£425 first prize) with the highest against Winchester was five prizes totalling over £1,500 (£650 first prize).
