18th September marks the start of the Rugby World
Cup 2015. 20 nations will compete for
the ultimate prize in Rugby, the Webb Ellis Cup, which was last won by New
Zealand in 2011.
Host nation England meet Fiji at Twickenham Stadium in the
opening game of the Tournament. The four home unions England, Ireland, Scotland
and Wales will all be hoping to safely get through the pool stages and then see
how far they can progress in the tournament.
With only two teams from each pool qualifying for the knock
out stage, competition will be fierce in what promises to be the most exciting
Tournament in rugby history.
Why not get everyone in to the spirit of the Rugby World Cup
and organise a sweepstake in the office to boost the fun during the big event
and raise funds for your organisation. You can also get your supporters
involved and ask them to run their own sweepstake with friends, family and
colleagues by picking out a team at random and making an agreed donation!
Decide how much you are going to charge to take
part, tell everyone that half of the money you collect will go to the
winner and half will go to your organisation.
Print out the different teams and put them into
a hat for people to pick a ticket.
Make a note
on the sweepstake form of everyone’s team.
You could also include additional games such as guess the
highest try scorer of the World Cup? How many drop kicks will happen during all
the games? There are lots of ways to make the tournament more exciting and raise
more money for your organisation.
