Who and what is Sporting Chance Prize Draw?

Sporting Chance Prize Draw is a not-for-profit organisation that brings together the UK's sporting community and charities. We create and run the annual Sporting Chance Prize Draw (every March), secure amazing sporting prizes and manage the promotion. Our charity partners use our platform to raise funds from their own donor and supporter bases.

In a nutshell, how does the Prize Draw work?

The UK's sporting community kindly donates exciting sports-related prizes, at no cost.

On 1st March at 12 noon (GMT), the Prize Draw opens and is available to enter via our website. Each donation made goes to the donor's chosen UK charity, accessible via the drop-down list or a unique URL provided by the charity.

On 15th March at 12 noon (GMT), the Prize Draw closes. The draw is made later that day.

The winners are revealed from 18th March.

The process of gathering amazing sporting prizes then starts again!

An email will be sent to all entrants to the Sporting Chance Prize Draw from Monday 18th March with details of the prize winners.

All winners will be contacted - via email only - up to three times using the same email address, before the prize is reallocated.

I've won! Can I choose my prize?

No. The prizes are drawn in order and prizes allocated to winners on that basis.

Each entry into the Prize Draw gives you a sporting chance of winning an amazing prize.

If you want to pass your prize on to friends or family, you can! Nearly a third of our 80 prize winners in 2023 decided to gift their prize to a lucky friend, colleague or relative.

How are the prizes sourced?

We work with individuals, clubs, and businesses from across the UK’s sporting community to secure amazing prizes. Donors contribute their prizes free-of-charge.

Do the charity partners donate prizes?

Some of our sporting prizes are donated by our charity partners who operate in or have partnerships in the sports sector. These donations are sourced at no financial expense to the charity.

Can I choose any charity?

Yes, you can choose any of the charities participating in Sporting Chance Prize Draw. You’ll be asked which one you would like to choose when you enter.

Do the charities really get 100% of donations?

100% of your donation goes to the charity you select when you enter the Prize Draw.

If you are unsure about which charity to support, you can select the ‘no preference’ option at the top of the drop-down list of charities. 100% of donations received via this option will be split equally amongst our charity partners.

How do we guarantee that 100% of the funds raised go to charity?

We are privately financed by several Founder Partners of Sporting Chance Prize Draw, who ensure all administration costs associated with the Sporting Chance Prize Draw platform are paid for. This includes any donation transaction fees that donors decide not to cover themselves. Therefore, all the money raised from the Prize Draw is donated to charity.

Why do we support UK-based charities?

Many small charities across the UK had their fundraising events postponed, or cancelled entirely, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sporting Chance Prize Draw was formed as a response – offering UK charities the chance to fundraise without the need to create or deliver an in-person fundraising event. Our ambition is to grow the platform and the number of causes we support.

How much has been raised to date via our platform?

Over £120,000 has been raised for charity via the Sporting Chance Prize Draw platform so far.

Our first three Prize Draws, held in March 2021, 2022 and 2023, helped support small UK charities at a time when income from fundraising events was impacted because of the pandemic.

In March 2024, we will be accelerating our impact even further.

Are there any direct costs associated with becoming a charity partner?

No. We provide charities with our donation platform (website); we source the vast majority of the amazing sporting prizes; and every penny the charities raise, goes straight to charity.


100% of your donation will go to a Sporting Chance Prize Draw charity partner of your choice.
