For the past 142 years, the Irish Football Association has organised, promoted and developed football. It has discovered some of the greatest talents to ever play the game, helped make history in major tournaments on the world stage and perhaps most important of all, engendered a life-long love of football in generations of men and women.
The Irish FA Foundation is the charitable arm of the Irish FA and exists to further equip the association to foster and grow the sport.
The Foundation has four main aims:
- Develop amateur football, youth football, schools football and futsal.
- Advance education by providing work experience and support to educational establishments and extra-curricular groups
- To provide funds and football facilities in areas in areas of economic need with the object of improving circumstances
- To improve the health and wellbeing of people in Northern Ireland through football
