It is well known that the person who makes hundreds of triangular sandwiches and a thousand cups of tea is forgotten when trophies are handed out. And the individual who collects the money at the gate, marks the pitch and picks up the sideline flags for matches never gets a mention in acceptance speeches.
SuperValu, proud sponsors of the GAA Football All Ireland Senior Championship, wants to shine a spotlight on these true GAA supporters and give them the recognition they deserve. The winner of ‘Ireland’s Number 1 Real GAA Supporter’ will receive an amazing prize of €10,000 to spend on GAA activities in their community as well as a VIP package for two people , including tickets, accommodation and €500 spending money, to the All Ireland Football Final in September. The three competition runners up will also each receive tickets to the Football All Ireland Final.
To be in with a chance of being crowned ‘Ireland’s Number 1 Real GAA Supporter’, all you have to do is prove that nobody in Ireland doing more to support their team, club, or county than you or your nominee.
The €10,000 can go towards your local GAA Community to aid a clubhouse makeover, new floodlights, upgrading pitches, or any other plans the club needs funding for. Or it could be used to benefit your local GAA school team or perhaps put it towards a holiday for your county team.
To enter, simply log on to www.supervalu.ie and tell us why you or someone you know is ‘Ireland’s Number 1 Real GAA Supporter’. Applicants are also welcome to add a photo or video to support their application, the more creative the entry the better your chance of winning this great prize.
The closing date is 30th July 2012 so why not get the whole community involved and get your application in now. A shortlist of four finalists will be pitted against each other on Today FM’s Championship Sunday Show, with the overall winner crowned in September.
