Supporting the Game at the Grassroots Level in partnership with the Irish FA
Our grassroots support of women’s football in Northern Ireland begins with the fun-filled Electric Ireland Shooting Stars programme. Delivered by Irish FA Foundation staff, the Electric Ireland Shooting Stars programme brings the football action to 15 participation centres across the country, opening up opportunities for girls aged 4-11 to have fun, make friends and learn the fundamentals of football.
Since its launch in 2018, the Electric Ireland Shooting Stars Programme has created over 10,000 participant hours for the next generation of Game Changers.
Electric Ireland’s support stretches to post-primary, too, in the form of the Electric Ireland Super Schools Festival and Schools Cup, which in 2022 launched a Year 8 competition to bring the total number of schools competing for silverware to fifty.
The Electric Ireland Schools’ Cup competitions and year-ending Electric Ireland Super Schools Festival are an exciting showcase of grassroot women’s football on our doorstep.
