Welcome to the Official Liverpool Supporters Club Fundraising Challenge 2018/19!

 

Being part of Liverpool Football Club means being part of the greatest football family in the world. We look out for each other, and particularly those in need.

The LFC Foundation is the official charity of Liverpool Football Club. Our mission is to bring together the LFC family to create life changing opportunities for children and young people in the Liverpool City Region and beyond.

Last season, through the Fundraising Challenge, our OLSCs raised an amazing £16,778 to help support children and young people in need – and with your help together we can raise even more this year!

2017/18 Winner's Experience

OLSC Cyprus & OLSC Japan, winners of the YNWA Award and LFC Family Award!

Back in May, during the halftime period of the Liverpool v Stoke City Premier League Match, the Official Liverpool Supporters Clubs of Cyprus and Japan were led down to pitchside, to take photographs with Liverpool FC’s CEO Peter Moore and LFC Foundation participants from the Premier League Kicks Football Programme.

The reason? Both OLSCs were winners in last season's OLSC Challenge. The competition challenged all 270 OLSCs across 88 countries to organise creative events and activities to bring fellow Reds together while raising funds for the club’s official charity. Through winning their awards, each branch was given the opportunity of a VIP matchday experience at Anfield.

Rewards & Prizes

Fundraising Rewards Levels

The LFC Foundation OLSC 2018/19 Fundraising Challenge ‘Fundraising Rewards’ are split into 5 Unique Levels, categorised in ascending order by the amount raised (in GBP) by OLSC’s, during the period of when the Challenge is live (between dates October 3rd 2018 and Sunday 12th May 2019).

Frequently asked questions

Q. Can each OLSC enter more than one of the 5 Prize Draws?

A. YES.

There is no limit to how many of the five draws an OLSC can enter, but each OLSC is limited to ONE Entry per draw.

Entry into each LFC Prize Draw is solely dependent on whether the OLSC has raised the amount required for that specific level, as mentioned earlier.

This same logic applies to all Fundraising Levels within the Challenge.

EXAMPLE 1.

If an OLSC raises an amount that falls within Level 2 – Team Players i.e. £300 GBP, then this OLSC receives automatic entry into both Level 1 & Level 2 Prize Draws.

EXAMPLE 2.

If an OLSC raises an amount that falls within Level 5 – The Boss i.e. £3000+ GBP, then this OLSC receives automatic entry into Level 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Prize Draws.

This ensures that there is equal opportunity per OLSC per Fundraising Level for the chance to win an LFC Prize.
