Women in Sport Fund

Women in Sport – Live Streaming Fund

The Federation of Irish Sport, funded by Sport Ireland, is partnering with Pundit Arena to bring live women in sport events and activity to life. The newly created ‘Showcase your Sportswomen live’ fund is open to applications from National Governing Bodies to showcase a select women’s sporting event/activity via live streaming and social media support provided by Pundit Arena. 

The Federation of Irish Sport hugely values the importance visibility plays in promoting women in sport and encouraging the next generation. As such, we believe that by showcasing the events and activity that are often overlooked we can continue to grow the audience watching and in time, attending women’s sporting events. 

We look forward to a year of fantastic female sporting activity from mini marathons to come try it days, to medal finishes and exciting qualifiers as we head towards Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo2020.
