Sligo Rovers Match Poster Competition

The #bitored have worked with six primary schools in the region over the last two weeks, in conjunction with a poster competition developed by the club.

We asked children to design our match poster for our home league game with Shamrock Rovers next month, in schools such as Ransboro, Scoil Ursula, Rathcormac, St. Johns, The Mercy Primary and Carraroe.

The competition was aimed at children in third, fourth, fifth and sixth class respectively.

The club received over 300 entries to the competition, with the club picking a winner in each classroom and presenting them with a small prize from the club.

The club then picked an outright winner from each respective school, with these final six drawings now going to public vote to decide which design will be used as our match poster next month.

To show our appreciation to every child who entered the competition, the club have committed to displaying every entry to the competition in the ground on the night of the game against Shamrock Rovers on October 5th.

The outright winner of the competition will be invited to the game with their family as VIPs, receive a signed match poster and match day programme from the club, be introduced to the crowd at half time and will also get their picture taken on the night for local media.

Below are the finalists for the competition, the child’s name, age and school listed also. Voting will be open for 24 hours and the winner will be contacted on Thursday.
