Euro Millions + Lotto Syndicate

The Friends of Tipperary Football will launch their new Euro Millions + Lotto Syndicate offering all members 840 chances to win the jackpot for only €20. Everyone who joins the syndicate will be part of a team who will share the winnings from every Euro Millions lotto draw over the duration of the syndicate. All funds raised will go directly towards the preparation of our inter-county teams from under-14 right up to senior. We all know the efforts and time the players and management teams are putting in each week and each year to represent the Premier County and bring success to the county.

So we are asking Tipperary followers of GAA in the county and beyond to purchase a ticket for just €20 and join The Friends of Tipperary Football Euro Millions + Lotto Syndicate. There are two draws each week and the lotto commences on September 1st 2020 to April 30th 2021.
