How long are the 50/50 Raffle tickets sold?
50/50 Raffle sellers will be selling tickets from the time gates open until the 70th minute of each game.
Where will the raffle tickets be sold?
Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the stadium via roaming sellers. There will always be a seller positioned at the kiosk located behind section 117.
Is the amount shown what I win?
No, the amount shown is the total amount of the jackpot. The winner will receive half of the amount shown.
When and where will the winning number be displayed?
The winning number will be displayed on the main video board as well as the kiosk located behind section 117 during the 80th minute of every game.
Do I have to be present to win?
The ticket holder does not need to be present to win. The winner is given 7 business days to claim their ticket. A picture of the winning ticket must be emailed to email@example.com. Upon presentation of the Winning Ticket (whether in person or via email), the Foundation shall coordinate with potential winners for them to come to PNC Stadium in order to complete the paperwork necessary to receive the Prize.
Are the raffle tickets tax deductible?
Tickets are Not Tax Deductible. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries, or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the Ticket does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.
Will the winner receive their money on the night of the game?
No, Dynamo Charities will file all applicable paperwork and then mail each winner a check within 30-60 business day.
What type of payment is accepted?
Raffle sellers will only accept credit or debit card payments due to PNC Stadium’s cashless policy.
How does the rollover jackpot work?
Seven business days after a jackpot has been unclaimed, the winner’s portion of the jackpot can be split 50/50 with half going to Dynamo Charities and the other half going directly back into another game’s jackpot.
Where does the other half of the money go?
Fifty percent of the 50/50 Raffle sales of the applicable game will be retained by Dynamo Charities. Dynamo Charities believes in using the sport of soccer to support communities in the greater Houston area. We are committed to leveraging the passion of our players, our staff, and our fans to provide resources and education that positively impact lives in our community. The four pillars of Dynamo Charities are food insecurity, veteran support, cancer support and awareness, youth and community development through education and soccer.
