Grasshopper Jackpot

Last updated : 14 October 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
The lucky winner of this weekend’s Boro Jackpot will be jetting off for a dream trip to Switzerland to watch Boro play Grasshoppers in their first UEFA Cup group game of the season.

The fantastic first prize means two flights and match tickets for the first number picked out – with the lucky winner making their way to Switzerland for Boro’s opening Group D match on Thursday, October 24.

“This is a brilliant prize for any Boro fan,” said Boro’s Head of Commercial, Graham Fordy. “Our previous Euro Jackpots have always been hugely successful because so many fans want to win this prize.”

Boro Jackpot tickets, priced just £1 each, are available in and around the Riverside Stadium before every home match. Sellers wear yellow jackets.

The Jackpot draw will be made at half-time at the Portsmouth match on October 15, with the winning numbers announced on the PA system, concourse TVs and on

All profits from the Boro Jackpot go towards the club’s Academy, helping to develop the next Stewart Downing, Tony McMahon or James Morrison.
