Sport Ireland Encourages Sports Bodies to Welcome Ukrainian Refugees into Sporting Community

 15 Apr 2022

On behalf of the Minister and the Department of Sport, Sport Ireland is seeking assistance from the sporting community to support those coming to Ireland from Ukraine.

Sports organisations may be in a position to contribute to Ireland’s humanitarian response at a national, regional and local level.

The immediate need is for suitable accommodation and facilities. In the longer term, sport will play an important role in welcoming people from Ukraine into their new communities. Sport Ireland recognise that many Governing Bodies and their affiliated clubs have already been proactive in this regard.

Comprehensive details of the support required and how best to contribute are included below.

National Governing Bodies and other Sport Ireland Funded Bodies seeking further information on how they can assist at a National level can contact Sport Ireland directly.

Support in all forms is welcome and encouraged.
