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 to participate in the 50/50 for the 2015-16 season are now closed. 

Participation Requirements

To be eligible to participate in the Edmonton Oilers 50/50 program, minor hockey and ringette associations 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 selected to participate in the Oilers 50/50 program for the 2015-16 season will be required to supply 57-60 volunteers. Volunteer duties include selling tickets on the concourse using the new handheld units, counting cash, and assisting with one of the many count room duties. 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 associations will be invited to attend an information session where more details about the program will be provided.

Pay-out Structure
Participating 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 fantastic volunteers sell, the more your association will receive!

*Please note that these proceeds may only be used for programs currently approved for by Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.

Transportation Reimbursement
Please be advised that if your association opts to travel to and from Rexall Place as a group via bus and/or passenger vans, we will once again offer transportation reimbursement up to $1,500.

Due to the large number of applications each year, we are unable to provide status updates. All applicants will be contacted by August 7, 2015 to advise whether your association has been selected to participate in the Oilers 50/50 program during the 2015-16 NHL season.
