Shamrock Rovers supporters are being urged to sign up for The Healthy Football League and help the Hoops earn the title of Ireland’s healthiest community of fans.


The HFL, sponsored by Bank of Ireland, is an app-based health promotion programme that uses the friendly rivalry of football fans and communities to encourage health-enhancing physical exercise.

The competition is open to people of all ages and fitness levels. Whether you’re a serious fitness enthusiast or someone who just likes to walk for health and well-being, you can score valuable points for your club and visibly affect their position on the HFL table. Every step counts!

The HFL, developed by the European Football for Development Network, is set to get underway on February 28th and supporters are urged to download the app and sign up ahead of the three-month competition.

There are significant cash prizes on offer to the winning LOI club and the country’s most active grassroots club and school. Grassroots clubs and schools wishing to partner with their local League of Ireland club should contact their LOI club community officer directly who can add that school or club to the HFL App as an HFL partner.

For more information, head to www.healthyfootballleague.com or download the app now from your App Store by searching ‘Healthy Football League’. The competition will end on May 31st with the winning club to be announced on June 1st.
