Turriff United are amongst Highland League clubs who are participating in the Donate a Ticket Cross-Country Cup which is now underway.
The scheme which encourages fans for pay for tickets to the league games which did not take place is already making a massive difference to club’s funds throughout Scotland.
There are 32 clubs spread across Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland who are all taking part including north-east teams from Turriff, Inverurie, Buckie, Forres, Fort William, Huntly, Keith, Nairn, Rothes and Wick
The first round draw which was made on Thursday evening sees Turriff United away to Glenrothes FC; Inverurie Locos at home to Eastbourne Borough; Keith and home to Huntly
As a spokesman for Turriff United explained: "We now have three days to try and raise as many £5 ticket donations as possible, if we receive more than our opponent we’ll progress into the second round the following week and so on.
"A Cup run is always important to any team, especially those at our level, however it’s even more vital during these unprecedented times so any £5 donations would be hugely appreciated as always.
He continued: "We know times are tough so we thought we would offer up a wee sweetener on the deal
"For each individual donation made we will enter the person making the donation a ticket into a raffle prize draw with the chance to win either a season ticket when the season kicks off again or two tickets to the next Ladies Day that we have.
"The more rounds we get through the more chances to win as we will be offering this raffle prize for each round we make it to!"
A version of the Scottish Cup is currently in play with nine days left of play which sees Beith Juniors going head to head with Tranent Juniors
