List of Texas Pro Teams that Qualify for 50/50 Raffles under Proposition 5
Proposition 5 added to the list of Professional Sports Teams that can host electronic 50/50 raffles at their games. It also removed the barrier that the team had to have a foundation prior to 2016 although they do need a charitable foundation.
“Professional sports team charitable foundation” means an organization that: (A) holds a certificate of formation under the Business Organizations Code or is otherwise incorporated under the laws of this state; (B) is associated with a professional sports team; and (C) is formed for charitable purposes.
Proposition 5 defines the following as a professional sports team:
a team organized in Texas that is a member of Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, the National Football League, Major League Soccer, the American Hockey League, the East Coast Hockey League, the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, Minor League Baseball, the National Basketball Association Development League, the National Women ’s Soccer League, the Major Arena Soccer League, the United Soccer League, or the Women ’s National Basketball Association;a person hosting a motorsports racing team event sanctioned by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), INDYCar, or another nationally-recognized motorsports racing association at a venue with seating for 75,000 or more;an organization hosting a Professional Golf Association event; or any other professional sports team defined by law.
