The Big Green Lottery

The Big Green Lottery was launched in 2008 as the Argyle Foundation and a scheme designed to generate funds for the Plymouth Argyle Academy.    
 
For just £2.25 per week, BGL members have raised vital funds over the past 13 years, helping to purchase a minibus for the Academy, state of the art sports science equipment, provided support in the Milk Cup tournament in Northern Ireland, funds for games against some of the leading Academy sides in European football and a whole lot more.    
 
As well as the fabulous new prize fund structure, BGL members benefit from a Big Match Ticket Priority and discount in the Home Park Superstore.

New Prize Fund Structure

 
The BGL entered the 2021/22 season with a new and improved prize fund structure, offering significantly more prize-winning opportunities for our members.    

There will now be seven guaranteed weekly winners from every single draw for the BGL, as well as a weekly rollover prize, which starts at £500 and rises by £50 every week and a Grand Annual Draw of £10,000.    
 
There will also be a monthly draw for an Argyle Experience prize.    
 
The weekly prizes will be broken down as follows:    
1 x £100 Winner    
1 x £50 Winner    
5 x £10 Winners    
 
The rollover draw will start on £500 and rises by £50 every week until a winner is drawn.  
   
As with previous years, the Big Green Lottery Grand Annual Prize will be drawn around Christmas at a special BGL event staged at Home Park and £10,000 will be paid to one lucky lottery winner.

In total, the BGL prize fund will be £24,000 across the whole year.
