Dublin’s Q102 Announces Partnership with Dublin & District Schoolboys/girls League

Introducing Feel Good Football

Dublin entertainment & audio brand, Q102, home of Ryan Tubridy, announced an exciting & exclusive partnership called Feel Good Football today with the leading youth football development league in Dublin, the DDSL. This collaboration marks a significant partnership within the grassroots football community, as two iconic Dublin brands join forces to support increasing participation in youth football and a specific focus on bringing a sense of fun back to the sport as well as creating pathways to welcome new players to the league and keep them actively involved, especially young females as well as taking on the culture and behaviours that negatively impact kids and create barriers to progress. 

As part of this official partnership, Q102 will actively engage and work with the DDSL, it’s Clubs and the football community, providing extensive coverage of league events, player highlights, and behind-the-scenes stories using its multi platform offering across FM listeners, digital streaming and incredible access to Q102’s social channels. Through on-air promotions, digital platforms, and live broadcasts, Q102 aims to amplify the excitement surrounding youth soccer in Dublin and spotlight the dedication and passion of young athletes.

“We are delighted to partner with the Dublin District Schoolboys & Girls League, to create Feel Good Football, said Vivienne Nagle, Managing Director, Q102 “ We’re hugely aware of the importance of community engagement and the positive impact of sports on young people’s lives. Our aim is to support the development of local boys & girls and celebrate their achievements of young athletes in Dublin. In conjunction with this partnership and the platform we will offer the DDSL, we have created the Feel Good Football campaign, where we aim to bring back the Feel Good factor to underage football and get more kids involved in playing the beautiful game.”

The DDSL, founded in 1943, has a rich history of nurturing soccer talent in Dublin with almost 3,000 teams and 45,000 players involved in 1,500 games every weekend. The DDSL plays a vital role in the grassroots soccer community, giving children all the benefits that sport brings to the development of our current and future generations.

. “We are thrilled to partner with Q102,” said Niall O Driscoll, Chairman at the DDSL. “This collaboration represents a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of youth soccer in Dublin and inspire the next generation of players. Together with Q102, we look forward to creating memorable experiences for our Clubs, players, coaches, and supporters. Through this partnership, Q102 and the DDSL aim to inspire young athletes, promote active lifestyles, and strengthen community ties through the power of soccer”
