Silent Sideline Weekend Update

The weekend is really taking shape now and I want to thank everyone for supporting the campaign and all those who have enquired about it to date. Like I mentioned before, a Silent Sideline Weekend has been tried and some have succeed but many have failed. I’m delighted to say that this weekend will not fail.  The reaction, the support and the media coverage has been incredible.

Did you know that this will be the first time that an entire country is willing to get involved in a Silent Sideline weekend, which is pretty incredible when you think about it.

Below you will find a list of clubs and league who have signed up so far. Included in the list are teams from the UK, Greece, US and Ireland of course. The response has been phenomenal and I couldn’t have expected such a commitment from clubs at such an early stage. So thank you all; your club members and players should be very proud.

Who’s Signed Up so far:

Ardee Celtic, Ballymun United, Blayney Academy FC, Castleknock Celtic FC, Castle Villa AFC, Carlow Juvenile League, Carrick United AFC, Coerver Coaching Munster, Cherry Orchard FC, Corofin United FC, East Meath United, DDSL, Douglas Hall AFC, Drogheda Town FC, Dunshaughlin Youths, Hartstown Huntstown FC, Kilbarrack United FC, Kildare League, Laytown United, Liffey Celtic Underage, Liffey Valley Rangers, Lusk United, Metropolitan Girls League, Nireas Paros FC, Peterhead BC Phoenix, Palmerstown FC, Naas AFC, NDSL, Malahide United AFC, Nor’West Optimist Soccer, Rivermeade FC, Shannon Hibernians, Shankill FC, St.Francis FC, St.Kevin’s Boys, St.Malachys, and Terenure FC with many more to be added in the coming days.

Silent Sideline Weekend Packs

In the coming weeks I will be sending out information and providing packs for clubs to purchase. The wristbands included in the packs, are priced at a very low cost to the clubs, in order to be re-sold at a higher price. A way to raise so much needed funds for your club. It is entirely up to each club if they wish to purchase the packs or not. You are under no obligation to do so. If you know of any other clubs who might be interested in getting involved please forward on this email.

Included in the Packs are:

  • 100+ flyers
  • 50-200 Silent Sideline Wristbands
  • 2 Silent Sideline High Vis Vest
  • 1 Collection Box

Please support the campaign to help improve participation in Youth Sports.
