On the 9 March 2016, the Federation of Irish Sport, in collaboration with the Vodafone Ireland Foundation, launched ‘GameDay Club Finder’, a new app that allows the public to locate their nearest club for over 30 member organisations.
The app uses location-based services and GPS technologies to create a grassroots network of sports clubs across every county in Ireland. The app is the brainchild of four-time All Star Dublin Footballer Sinead Goldrick, who won an internal Vodafone competition with the creative idea. This cutting-edge piece of technology was then developed by the Federation of Irish Sport (FIS) and the Vodafone Ireland Foundation. GameDay Club Finder works by allowing users to search by sport, county and local clubs. Each club involved has a profile with their contact details, website, social media links and directions to their grounds using a combination of GPS and Google Maps.
The app currently holds the details of well over 2,000 sports clubs and their associated National Governing Bodies nationwide. You can download GameDay Club Finder from both the App Store and Play Store.
Clubs can create their own profile for free on the Game Day Club Finder website – www.gamedayapp.ie
