Win a training masterclass with Northern Ireland players via M&S Food Eat Well

M&S Food Eat Well and the Irish Football Association are launching a game changing competition for youth football teams to win a training masterclass with Northern Ireland players.

Know a child who fancies their chances of becoming a future Northern Ireland star? Or a local grassroots or school football team that needs a bit of help with their free-kick set pieces? Then help them be in with a chance to win this fantastic prize by picking up delicious and nutritious Eat Well products in M&S Foodhalls across the nation. You can then nominate your local team to go into the draw.

Every product that has the Eat Well health seal of approval is an entry into the competition. All people have to do when paying is ensure that their Sparks card is scanned to go into the draw.

Northern Ireland senior team men’s manager Ian Baraclough said: “This is a great opportunity for young footballers to train with their heroes. It’s really easy to enter. Every Eat Well product you buy equals one entry to the competition. So the healthier you eat the more chances you have to win! Plus you have the chance to win other great prizes including great tasting Eat Well products across a wide range of items. Let’s see if we can unearth some Northern Ireland stars of the future.”

The competition is open from 1 August 1 to 27 September across all stores. As well as the training masterclass there are thousands of other prizes up for grabs including match tickets, kits, equipment, signed merchandise and Eat Well products.

What is Eat Well, Play Well?

M&S Food has partnered with the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland national football teams to use the power of football and the influence of some of the UK’s biggest footballing heroes to help families make healthier choices under the campaign banner ‘Eat Well, Play Well’.

Through the M&S Eat Well health seal of approval and its partnership with the FAs, M&S Food aims to make families healthier for the next generation. It links the eating habits of much-loved footballing heroes to how they play, promoting positive healthy eating messages for kids in a way that’s engaging, relatable and drives change.
