CMFSC 2022-23 Fall Club Raffle

CMFSC 2022 RAFFLE WINNER: Chris Deas, Ticket Number: 326116


For the 2022 – 2023 soccer season, Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club, in conjunction with its sponsors, its teams and players will be once again undertaking a fundraising raffle in which 24,000 tickets will be produced and sold at a price point of $10.00 per ticket.  Our Club’s primary sponsor, Metro Motors has sponsored a 2022 Ford Maverick XLT which will be the raffle prize.  We are grateful for the support of Metro Motors for its ongoing support of our Club.

 

Why does CMFSC hold a Raffle?

CMFSC is committed to developing and offering more programs and playing opportunities to support the continued development of its membership and players at all ages and levels of play.  As operating costs across all programs continue to escalate, the Club continues to explore methods of generating incremental funds, rather than passing these cost increases directly onto its membership.  The fall 2021 raffle generated approximately $122,000 in net revenue that was applied directly to CMFSC programs and expenses. The expectation and goal for the 2022 raffle is to generate $240,000 for the CMFSC’s 2022 – 2023 programs.  

 

What is the Price of the Raffle Tickets?

Tickets for the 2022 raffle are priced at $10.00 per ticket. (Note that each $50 book has only 5 tickets this year to sell). Based on the volume of positive feedback we received in 2021, and given the high dollar value of the prize the Club awarded in 2021 (and the prize we will award this season), tickets should remain an easy sell.  In addition, the raffle tickets represent extremely good value with great odds of winning.  

 

What is the Raffle Prize?

CMFSC sponsors and suppliers have continued to support the Club in a big way.  As such, the major prize for this season’s raffle will include the following: 

  • Raffle Prize -  2022 Ford Maverick XLT. Due to the increased value of the vehicle again this year, we will only be having one prize. 

 

Are Team Seller Prizes Being Offered?

Team “Early Bird” Prizes:

Teams have a chance to win “Early Bird” prizes.  The first fifteen (15) teams (5 from each of the Initiation Academy, Mini’s and Youth/Adult teams) selling and returning all of their assigned ticket books, monies and control sheet on or before the Friday, September 30th deadline (for IA only October 12, 17th and 25th) will win a $200.00 cheque per team.

Also, the first nine (9) teams (3 from the Initiation Academy, Mini’s and Youth/Adult teams) which sell the most tickets (availability limited to extra printed tickets) will win $250/$150/$75 for 1st/2nd/3rd place respectively.  Winners will be selected from all of the completed packages returned by the due date of Friday, September 30th, (for IA ONLY October 12, 17 and 25th ). Winners will be selected prior to the Raffle Draw.   

There will also be ten (10) random team draws for $100 gift certificates drawn from all club teams returning their raffle packages by the required due date. 

 

What are the Club’s Expectations of Teams and Individual Players

U8 through U12 teams will each be assigned @12-13 books of tickets to sell. U13 through U18 teams will be assigned @18 books of tickets to sell. The Adult teams will receive approximately 18 books of tickets to sell. Each book contains only 5 raffle tickets, priced at $10.00 per ticket.  Players in the CMFSC Initiation Academy will receive approximately one (1) book each per player. Teams and players will have approximately 3 weeks to sell their ticket allotment and return the stubs and proceeds.  As the funds generated benefit all teams and players, the expectation is that all teams and all players will participate in the ticket sales process.
