Sligo Rovers FC
Sligo Rovers Football Club is an Irish professional football club playing in the Premier Division of the League of Ireland. The club was founded in 1928 and have been in the League of Ireland since 1934. The club is a co-operative venture, owned by the people of Sligo. Rovers have played at The Showgrounds since their inception.
Community based club, owned by the community and its supporters. Held in trust, the stadium can never be sold or used for anything apart from football. The club’s mission is to be a leading player in the Community and have a positive impact on people’s lives.
They select a charity partner of the year for every season. This year it’s the Alzheimer’s society of Ireland. They started off the partnership by hosting a virtual tea morning for staff, supporters and volunteers to raise money for the charity.
The club has developed a strong working relationship and partnership with Everton FC. As a result, they are working very closely with EITC and are currently working on activities for pensioners once the pandemic ends.
