The 50/50 Elite Match-day Returns For 2021/22 Season

The 50/50 Half-Time Draw returns for the new season and will again support both Our Academy and the Girls’ Academy at DUCT.


With crowds returning to Tannadice this season we are finalising the testing of our exciting new system that will allow supporters to buy tickets both within the stadium and online!


In order to ensure a successful relaunch we are looking to the Rangers  game on Saturday 7 August as the first draw date of the season.


With both in-stadium sales and online sales the opportunity to win bigger prizes will become a reality and we cannot wait to see the response as United fans again back our fund-raising efforts supporting our Club.


Keep looking out for further updates ahead of our relaunch.




A Message from Andy Goldie, Academy Director

Andy GoldieThank you to all our fans who continue to support Our Academy through the purchase of a DUDA Lottery or 50/50 Matchday Ticket. For every ticket sold, DUDA donate money back into Our Academy which allows us to offer our best young talent opportunities to test themselves against the best players in Europe.
We have made no secret that we want to return long term sustainable success back to Dundee United Football Club by developing a new generation of players that we can all relate to and celebrate with in years to come. By providing them with opportunities to compete against Europe’s elite we offer them experiences that will not only last with them forever but also challenges that only help enhance their learning and development.
The support DUDA have offered Our Academy in providing these opportunities has been fantastic and the introduction of the new "Elite 50/50 Matchday Draw" will allow us to continue to grow our Additional Games Programme, accelerate the development of our very best young talent and put Dundee United Football Club firmly back on the map as one of Europe’s best clubs for developing young players.



DUDA Supports DUCT Community COVID 19 Recovery Initiatives

DUCT LogoJamie Kirk, Chief Executive for the Community Trust commented “We are absolutely delighted that 10% of the profits of the 50/50 draw is being donated to the Community Trust to help us to support the community. So far we have helped hand out packed lunches to people in our local community and provided weekly activity workbooks and video challenges to try and help keep people engaged. There is so much more we want to do and supporting the 50/50 is a great way to help us achieve that.”


DUDA is pleased to announce that this arrangement to assist DUCT's Covid support activities by donations from the 50/50 online Draw continued throughout season 2020/21 and resulted in a total of £1200 being donated.


This arrangement is now concluded but we want to thank all those United fans who purchased 50/50 tickets during that time for making this valuable contribution possible.
