Sports Funder

When you play SportsFunder lottery games, you are supporting amateur sports in B.C. and you can win great prizes, too!

SportsFunder in the community

Proceeds from the sale of SportsFunder lottery games are directed to amateur sports in B.C. Over the next six years, SportsFunder are expected to generate more than $20 million for amateur sports in British Columbia. To date, SportsFunder has contributed over $1.5 million to the following four programs:

KidSport™ -

Provides financial assistance to children who wish to play sports but cannot afford the registration fees. Each year, the program helps more than 2,000 kids play a season of sport.

Team BC -

Gives athletic development support such as new equipment, training modules and sport science for provincial teams representing B.C. at Canada's premiere multi-sport events.

Youth Sport Travel Assistance -

Funds are directed to B.C. School Sports and selected Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO) for their youth members to travel to competitions and training opportunities.

Coach and Leadership Development -

Provides educational and certification opportunities with particular focus on coaches in outlying regions, female coaches, Aboriginal coaches and coaches of athletes with disabilities. Funding will also go to BC Recreation and Parks Association's High Five program, which provides accreditation for recreation providers working with children.

SportsFunder is part of BCLC's partnership with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic Games (VANOC). As an Official Supporter, the six-year partnership provides BCLC with sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Canadian Olympic Team for the Torino 2006, Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 Olympics.
