Eskimo fans are teaming up with minor football and winning big with the Eskimos 50/50 presented by belairdirect.

During the fourth quarter of every Eskimo home game, a winning ticket is randomly drawn and one lucky fan takes home 50% of proceeds from the game’s ticket sales. The remaining net proceeds support minor football programs in Northern Alberta, including the Edmonton Huskies Junior Football Club, Edmonton Wildcats Junior Football Club, University of Alberta Golden Bears football, Football Alberta and the Eskimo Alumni Association’s amateur football initiatives.

In 2015, the Eskimos donated $610,000  to amateur football through the Eskimos 50/50 presented by belairdirect. An additional $250,000 by the Eskimos was committed to Golden Bears Football, over the course of five years, for scholarship funds.
