Fans have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets in some tailgate areas before the match and in the stadium when gates open. Tickets will be sold through halftime with a winner being announced after the match. One lucky fan will win half of the evening's net proceeds. A second chance drawing to win autographed memorabilia will also be available on our 50/50 microsite. For information on past winners and to enter the second chance drawing, please click here.
