Baby jersey initiative going down a storm

In March 2021, Sligo Rovers announced that we would be giving free club jerseys to each new born baby at Sligo University Hospital that year.

This community initiative has been extremely well received by all the families who had a newborn enter the world with their first ever football shirt being a Bit O’ Red one.

2021 saw over 1200 shirts handed out by the maternity staff of SUH. Shirts are given out as part of a leaving pack before making the much anticipated first journey home.

For any families wishing to send in a photo of their newborn in their brand new shirt, you can email and we may use some on social media over the year.

We’d like to thanks Bit O’ Red Supporters Trust for helping us with this project as well as all the staff at the Maternity Ward of Sligo University Hospital.

Our official online store also has infant kits available from 6 months upwards. This consists of our Home jersey and club shorts. You can get yours via the link below:
