LOI Supporter Workshop Aims To Make A Difference


League of Ireland clubs survive and thrive because of the ongoing support, effort and dedication of their supporters and volunteers, and the ‘LOI Supporters: Making a Vital Difference‘ workshop will highlight much of the crucial work carried out by fans in the name of the crest of their football shirt.

The LOI Supporters: Making a Vital Difference workshop is organised by the Irish Supporters Network, and is open to everyone interested in building a brighter future for our game.

The event will be held at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, November 1st to coincide with one of the most important dates in the Irish football calendar: the FAI Cup final which pits Derry City against St Patrick’s Athletic..

The event is open to everyone with an interest in Irish football and a number of practical and interactive sessions are planned, including:

Fan Engagement: What constitutes meaningful engagement and how can it benefit clubs and supporters?

SLO: how the SLO role can develop and have an impact on Irish football

Volunteers in Action: How supporters and volunteers are actively working to support their clubs week in week out

Panel Discussion: How can we draw fans away from their TV and into our football grounds?

Representatives of the FAI, Supporters Direct Europe, Football Supporters Europe, who will host their annual Congress in Belfast next summer, UEFA’s SLO consultant Stuart Dykes, Rosenborg SLO Arne Christian Roarson Eggen along with representatives from League of Ireland and Women’s National League clubs will be in attendance.

Limited spaces are available for the workshop. Refreshments and a light lunch is included in the day so attendees are asked to consider a donation towards the costs involved when registering via Eventbrite.

More information and updates about the workshop will be posted on over the coming weeks.
