New virtual 50-50 to help raise funds

Awww come on we ain't living in the dark ages! Are you telling me that a virtual 50/50 that runs until a certain time before kick off cannot be added to the people who buy on the day? I know Thistle are retarded when it comes to money making opportunities but this is simple. If they can do the online and draw a winner 25 minutes later it is all easy peesy lemon squeezy 

You're right, it's not rocket science. Just need to print each online sale onto a piece of paper the same size as the physical ticket stubs.

Could they even have the online draw for weekends when Thistle are playing away and selling the tickets at the ground for home games?

Just to add some comments to the virtual draw discussion, I've been buying 3 to 5 tickets weekly, I know of 2 others buying 5 per week. I'm sure many others are doing the same mainly to support the club, and also due to the unusual circumstance we are in. In normal circumstances I buy 1 or 2 tickets per home game that I attend, which is maybe 12-15 games per season depending on work commitments. The other 2 mentioned seldom buy any. If this is replicated then the virtual sales are probably artificially higher now than they would be if they were available in normal circumstances. I would certainly buy online tickets when we are away or if I can't make a home game, but it's doubtful I would keep up a fiver each week.

If these funds are still applied to youth development as originally intended (and not to general club costs), we might end up with a very strongly supported youth contingent at a time when older players have decided it's time to move on from football and do something else with their lives.

Given it was founded 7 years ago and not one player has come through the ranks i doubt this will be the case. All players seem to get freed when they hit 18

*edited to add - sorry i forgot about fitzy*

Why not just have a draw for each system as they stand. The money all goes in the same pot. 

Maximizing sales is a no brainer, imo.
