World Cup Sweepstakes


With the 2014 World Cup kicking off on 12 June, we are joining the football fever by running an exclusive World Cup Sweepstakes with our online partner, Guess2Give.

There is an enticing pooled prize fund on offer for the grand prize, second and third prize winners. A percentage of every entry will be donated to us to help put first aiders in communities across the country (up to £2.40, including Gift Aid, for every £3 entry).

How it works

Those taking part pay £3 online and get a team randomly allocated to them. If their team wins then they enter a lottery where first, second and third prize winners are picked to take home their winnings. The prize fund grows with every person who takes part, so get your friends, family, and colleagues involved!

SJA and football

First aid saved Bolton Wanderers star Fabrice Muamba’s life when he collapsed at White Hart Lane in 2012. St John Ambulance first aiders have been a familiar and reassuring matchday sight for fans for over a century. By taking part in the World Cup 2014 Super Sweepstake, you’re helping us to continue our life saving work on the ground and in communities nationwide.


What is this?

It’s an online sweepstake for the 2014 World Cup, in support of St John Ambulance. Think of it like a sweepstake you might do among friends or colleagues, but being held online so nobody has to run around with slips of paper with team names on it to organise everything.

How does it work?

If you’re over 18, you can go onto Guess2Give and buy an entry for £3. The more people that enter, the bigger the prizes will be.  The process is fully automated online, so you can set up an account and enter the sweepstake within a few minutes.

Why are we doing this?

We have a long association with football, providing first aid cover to hundreds of matches across the country, every season. We’re using the sweepstake to raise funds to support our life saving work.

Won’t there be more than one winner if only 32 teams are taking part? What if everyone picks the winning team?

When the sweepstake closes, the grand prize will be randomly allocated to one of the entries which holds the winning team. 

Is this gambling?

Yes it is. It is only open to people over the age of 18. Both St John Ambulance and our sweepstake provider, Guess2Give, have full and current Gambling Licenses.
