New initiative at Aviva Stadium to help fund amateur clubs

A new initiative aimed at raising revenue for amateur soccer and rugby clubs across Ireland has been launched today.

Compass Group Ireland is partnering with the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU), to launch 'Club Kiosk'.

The project allows soccer and rugby clubs across Ireland the chance to take over a food kiosk at Aviva Stadium on match days.

The kiosk will be kitted out in the club colours, with representatives from the club attending and the selected club will receive 10% of the takings from that kiosk.

Club kiosk will kick off this Saturday at the Ireland v South Africa match with Killarney RFC and Wexford Wanderers RFC taking over food kiosks on Levels 1 and 5.

Two soccer clubs will also take over the kiosks on November 18.

Commenting on this new initiative, Fiacra Nagle, managing director, Compass Group Ireland said: “The Compass club kiosk programme provides a unique way for local clubs to raise funds at big match day events at Aviva Stadium.

“We are delighted to partner with the IRFU and the FAI on this initiative and look forward to welcoming our first clubs to Aviva Stadium this weekend.”

Compass Group Ireland, Ireland’s leading food and support services company, employs over 4,000 people on the Island of Ireland, operates over 250 units and serves over 100,000 meals a day.
