Football Cooperative - A New Model for Social Football in Ireland - Board Members Call

Football is the beautiful game. It is played in every country in the world and at many different levels. No other sport boasts such reach. It binds people together and creates a common language they can all speak. Football Cooperative Ireland’s mission is to harness the potential of social football for delivering community engagement as well as promoting the health and wellbeing outcomes from exercise. Our pick-up football model is inclusive to adults of all ages, abilities and is structured like no other social football operation in Ireland. We open the door to people that would not usually have the network to provide them with access to football. We offer flexibility to play football as it suits members and not be left out  because of work, family, care or other responsibilities.

We have experienced great interest and our current membership stands at 458 adults across four pick-up football sites. In 2019, a combined total of 296 pick-up-games were organised equating to 17,760 minutes of football.

We are seeking Board Members to help oversee and advise on the development and implementation of our strategic plans that advance the organisation and its brand identity.

If you have experience in sport or strategy development and want to play a role in helping us, we’re keen to hear from you. Please send us a mail for more information to footballcooperativeireland@gmail.com
