Vikings Lottery Launched

Widnes Vikings can reveal full information regarding a new club lottery which will give supporters the opportunity to win incredible cash prizes while supporting a number of fantastic initiatives.

In conjunction with the launch of our new 2020 Season Ticket packages, the Vikings Lottery replaces the former Dream Ticket system which now no longer exists.

Vikings Lottery will help fund the delivery of programmes that provide incredible opportunities for all regardless of age, gender and ability, and supporters are encouraged to sign up for the scheme while purchasing their 2020 Season Tickets.

Everyone who joins our new lottery system will be providing much needed funds for these programmes, from supporting those living with dementia with monthly events at the Halton Stadium, to helping the production of homegrown players for the first team squad through the Vikings development pathway.

We also run a range of inclusive initiatives that give the people of our community the chance to improve their mental and physical fitness, while making dreams come true with our Learning Disability Super League team.
