50/50 

Minor Hockey/Ringette Associations

The Edmonton Oilers proudly support minor hockey and ringette associations of Northern Alberta through 50/50 draws that take place during Edmonton Oilers home games.

Tickets are $5 each, 3 for $10 or 10 for $20 and can be purchased until the middle of the second intermission, with one lucky winner taking home 50% of the pot.

Like the derrick descending from the roof or the stick salute at the end of a successful game, the Edmonton Oilers 50/50 program is an exciting aspect of every home game at Rexall Place.

With the highest average 50/50 prize of all Canadian NHL teams, it takes a dedicated group of volunteers to make the program a success night after night. Each season, minor hockey and ringette associations in Northern Alberta have the opportunity to participate in the excitement!

Applications for the 2014-15 season are closed 

New this season!
Minor Hockey and Ringette Associations will receive a donation in exchange for providing volunteers to sell the 50/50 tickets. Groups will receive a base pay of $6,000 plus a commission of 20% over $100,000 total sales! The more your  volunteer group sells, the more your charitable group will receive!
*Please note that these proceeds may only be used for programs currently approved for by Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.

Bussing Reimbursement
Back by popular demand, groups will be reimbursed up to $1,500 to cover bussing costs to and from Rexall Place. Get all your volunteers to Rexall Place on time and don’t worry about the parking!

To participate in the Edmonton Oilers 50/50 program, minor hockey and ringette groups must:
  • be registered and in good standing with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission and must be eligible to receive gaming proceeds in accordance with AGLC policies
  • be an active and engaged group focused on fundraising for your association
  • be a willing and active partner with the Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club in supporting community initiatives throughout the year
Minor hockey and ringette associations chosen to participate in the Oilers 50/50 program for the 2013-14 season will be asked to supply 57-60 volunteers. From selling tickets on the concourse using the new handheld units to counting cash or assisting with one of the other count room duties, there are a variety of volunteer opportunities available.

Volunteers are asked to arrive 2.5 hours before puck drop and work into the third period of play, for a total time commitment of approximately 5 hours.
 
Prior to the beginning of the season, the Executive Director or Volunteer Coordinator of all selected organization will be invited to attend an information session where more details about the program will be provided.


Due to the large number of applications each year, we are unable to provide status updates. All applicants will be contacted by August 8, 2014 to advise whether your application has been accepted or not.
