Irish FA – Ahead of the game

For the past 141 years, the Irish Football Association has organised, promoted, and developed football. It has discovered some of the greatest talents to ever play the game, helped make history in major tournaments on the world stage and perhaps most important of all, engendered a life-long love of football in generations of men and women.

Ahead of the Game is the Irish FA Foundation’s mental health programme for football clubs.

The course aims to support clubs and volunteers when dealing with mental health issues, challenging the stigma around mental health, and promoting positive mental health and preventative measures. Ahead of the Game focuses on the idea and importance of starting the conversation around mental health in football.

The programme is a part of the UEFA Hat Trick funding for football and social responsibility and was developed in partnership with TAMHI (Tackling Awareness of Mental Health Issues), Inspire and Train 2B Smart Soccer.

The Irish FA hopes to contribute through some of their bespoke community relations programmes aimed at using the hook of football to break down barriers.
