Christmas Charity Blitz
Posted on

Cork Tag Rugby is delighted to announce that we will host our annual Christmas Charity Blitz in aid of the local Carrigaline Charity Football For All. This is our third year supporting this fantastic charity with previous years proving a real success. The Christmas Charity Blitz is played in a really fun sociable manner with all participating teams embracing the festive spirit. Refreshments are provided throughout the the day with a prize giving ceremony in the clubhouse following the final round of games. We welcome teams of all abilities with no prior experience required. In previous years, we have had teams return again but have also welcomed many new faces. The blitz offers a great opportunity to catch up and socialise with those who are back for the Christmas season.

The chosen charity for the Christmas Charity Blitz is Football For All, which is an initiative of the FAI with the aim to assist local football clubs to become more inclusive to children aged 6 – 14 years of any ability in Cork. This initiative is also supported locally by the Cork Sports Partnership. The programme now has 25 clubs nationwide to ensure the inclusion of children of all abilities in the football community in Ireland, guaranteeing that all children regardless of ability will in the future have the same opportunity to play football for their local club. As well as regular training, children in football for all clubs get a chance to play for their local club in regular blitzes against other teams both regionally and nationally!

The Cork Tag Rugby Christmas Charity Blitz will take place on Tuesday 27th December in Carrigaline Soccer Club. Kick off is at 12 noon with registration from 11.15am. The cost is €160 per team with all proceeds going directly to the charity. This is a really fun day out and a great way to run off the Christmas dinner. To register your team, click on the link below.
