Mike Lewis steps down from matchday draw role

After 25 years at the helm of the Bristol City Community Trust’s Matchday Draw, Mike Lewis and his wife Maureen have retired from their respective roles.

Mike started the hugely popular draw in 1993, which has continually developed in stature and now sees City fans win up to £1,000 and signed memorabilia at every home game throughout the season.

The 2015/16 season saw the matchday draw team reach one million tickets sold – an applaudable milestone – and everyone connected with the club would like to thank the pair for their efforts.

“Mike and Maureen have been a pleasure to work with over the years and the success of the matchday draw is largely down to them,” said Community Trust’s chief executive officer Dan White.

“They always arrived full of energy and assembled a group of sellers who were driven to generate as much revenue as possible, which in turn rewarded the supporters with larger cash prizes, while benefiting the local community.

“I would like to place on record my gratitude and I wish them the very best of luck for the future.”

All of the proceeds from the matchday draw, after deducting sums for prizes and expenses, support the invaluable work of the Community Trust, assisting them in delivering their diverse programmes, projects and schemes throughout the Bristol region.

Sellers are located at the main entrances into the ground, and there is also the opportunity to buy tickets inside Ashton Gate, with sellers in each of the concourses.

Prizes that are not claimed on the day need to be redeemed by 5pm on the next working day. All winning numbers are tweeted from the @BCCommTrust Twitter account once the draw is complete and announced via the PA system.

Matchday draw tickets are available for just £1 at each home game, to supporters aged 16-plus. For more information, click here.
