Electric Ireland’s partnership with the Irish FA aims to boost female football participation rates across Northern Ireland with Electric Ireland the Official Sponsor of the UEFA Women’s Under 19 Championship 2017, Girls’ Post Primary Schools Football and Schools Cup and the Electric Ireland Women’s Challenge Cup.
The partnership deal also sees Electric Ireland become the Official Energy Partner to The National Football Stadium at Windsor Park and the Official Energy Partner of Northern Ireland Football.
To support the sponsorship, Electric Ireland announced details of its campaign Game Changers, which will break down the perceptions that exist around women’s football, celebrate female football talent and most importantly help boost participation rates across Northern Ireland.
From November 2017 when a customer switches to Electric Ireland online or over the phone and nominates a club under Club Game Changers that club will receive £25.
This funding will go towards new equipment, football kits, bus journeys etc. for local clubs and will help build strong foundations within the clubs, allowing them to grow as both a club and as a community.
Commenting on the scheme Michael Boyd, Irish FA’s Director of Football Development, said:
“We see daily how dedicated parents are to their children’s sport, supporting them pitch side, running them to training etc and of course contributing to their club’s funds.
This initiative is a super way for parents to contribute in a simple way that will greatly benefit their club.”
“The Club Game Changers scheme offers clubs the opportunity to give something back to the young footballers.
It is a step in the right direction for the development of the game in Northern Ireland.”
