Another fundraising idea for teams to use:
We call it the pontoon. Teams from the Premiership, Championship and League One all correspond to a number, e.g. Arsenal - 1, West Ham - 20.
Numbers are picked randomly by your players or parents, we use bingo balls.
It costs £1 a week for a team.
Full time scores are then recorded, and a team that reaches 11 goals wins.
For example, the team may win 3-1, 4-0 and 4-2, so the three full time scores equal 11 (3+4+4). It is only the full time scores.
The first team(s) get a share of £50.
There is also a prize for the lowest scorers, and the team who has higher than 11, we do £10 for each.
Once a team reaches 11, the competition then stops, and it is drawn again.
If you get 40 people doing it, and it goes on for 4 weeks, it's a profit of roughly £100 (£40x4) - (£50+£10+£10).
Remember, the competition length varies. If teams do not play, due to international breaks, they get 2 goals. It is only weekend games (Friday - Monday).
