To all members,

As previously advised, the departure of our previous Chairperson, Siobhan O'Brien, to start a job with UEFA has opened up a position on the YBIG Mandate Committee.

As per our Constitution, members had 14 days to nominate potential candidates and two people have been proposed, Aidan Brett and Caroline Ginty and a link to an online ballot paper has been issued to all members. If you have signed up and did not receive a mail then please contact us as ybigmandate@gmail.com.

Details on both candidates can be viewed below.

****
Aidan Brett

My name is Aidan Brett and I've been a YBIG Mandate member since the group was founded in 2016. I've been a season ticket holder for well over a decade and travel regularly to away games.
 
Since the early years of YBIG, I have made myself available by helping to create the matchday atmosphere in Lansdowne. This involved fundraising, designing and organising the flags and banners on the day.

I also have the responsibility of being the fans team manager. Again, a lot of organising with other fans teams, tournaments, dragging a big bag of kit around Europe and charity fundraising is a part of this role.

Along with Liam Murray I help with designing and sourcing products for the YBIG shop.

If I am nominated to a position on the Mandate committee I am confident that I can bring some great ideas to the table that will benefit the group.

****

Caroline Ginty

My name is Caroline Ginty and I’m a long standing member of the YBIG Mandate, having joined in 2016.

I’m a season ticket holder for home games, have been travelling to away games for many years and I’m also a Longford Town fan.

As an avid follower of the Irish team home and away, this has led to having many connections with other fans so therefore I have a good knowledge of what supporters want while also giving female supporters a voice.

I am interested in finding out what issues supporters want addressed and improvements which can be made to issues that affect supporters within Irish football.

****

Once decided, you can vote for the candidate of your choice by clicking the ballot paper link in the mail and verify your vote by providing the email address that you signed up to the Mandate group with.

Voting is open until midnight Sunday February 20th and results will be announced the following week.  

Thank you for your continued support.        

YBIG Independent Supporters Mandate Committee


Many thanks to all who have voted so far. 

Just bumping to say that voting will close at midnight on Sunday February 20th with results to be announced next week. 

A reminder has been issued to members by email with a fresh link to vote.

To all members,

Many thanks to all who have voted in our committee election.

Having collated the ballots and cross-checked them against our members database, we can confirm that Caroline Ginty has been elected with 63% of the vote and wish her our congratulations on behalf of the membership.

The Mandate Committee would like to put on the record our appreciation to both Caroline and Aidan Brett for putting themselves forward and to all those who voted.

As a result, Caroline will now fill the open position on our overall committee and Aidan Brett will continue the excellent work he has been doing with the Fans Team sub-committee, which he will now chair, and with the flags and atmosphere sub-committee chaired by Peadar Conroy.

Speaking of the flags and atmosphere committee, there is a current fundraiser draw ongoing for the new international season with prizes of a 2022 season ticket, a YBIG shirt and a YBIG scarf up for grabs.

To enter, simply send €10 by PayPal to ybigflagsfund@gmail.com before 5pm on Thursday 3rd March. The draw will be made later that evening.

Finally, as part of a group that has previously sent representative fans teams to play at tournaments in Ukraine, our thoughts and support are with those we know over there and the broader Ukrainian population. YBIG Mandate welcomes the FAI decision announced today that no Irish team will play against Russia at any level until further notice.   

Thank you for your continued support.

To all members,

The recent shocking events in Ukraine have had many football fans wondering just what they can do to help.

It has particularly resonated with the members of our YBIG Fans Team who travelled to Lviv in western Ukraine for the annual Eurofanz tournament between 2011 and 2019. The lads on the team, including our current char John O'Neill, forged many friendships with fellow players and supporters on those trips and were due to go there again in June for the Nations League game after Covid travel restriction had finally been lifted.

Obviously, this trip will not now happen and it's been a sobering experience for the team to see the friends they made now having to fight for their lives and their country.

To help the Ukrainians who are suffering we are hosting a Ireland v Ukraine Fans match on Friday March 25th at 7.30pm at Home Farm’s ground in Whitehall, Dublin 9. Capacity is 2,000 and you can also donate by buying a virtual ticket if you can't attend.

This match is being organised by You Boys in Green with our Irish Football Supporters Partnership colleagues from the Confederation of Republic of Ireland Supporters Clubs and Irish Supporters Network, along with Ukrainian Football Fans and Home Farm FC. The Football Association of Ireland have also given their help and support.

All proceeds from the sale of match tickets, which are €10 (attendees and virtual ticket purchases), will go to the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Appeal. Tickets are available at the below link.


We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to Future Ticketing, who have waived all fees for this fixture and to Home Farm FC for providing the venue free of charge.

Entertainment will be provided in the Home Farm bar at Whitehall after the match with folk and ballads group Catalpa topping the bill and their support is much appreciated.

It is hoped that we can have 2000 fans in attendance at this match with both Irish and Ukrainian supporters proudly wearing their green/white/orange and yellow/blue national colours.

The FAI have also given their backing to this initiative - https://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/fai-backs-fans-initiative-for-ukraine-fundraising

You can read more about the trips to Eurofanz and the charity work undertaken on those visits below and we hope that you can support a cause very close to our hearts.


Thank you for your continued support.

To all members,

We hope this post finds you well ahead of the upcoming fixtures with Scotland and Armenia.

Since first getting involved in the Governance Review Group process and the resulting formation of the Irish Football Supporters Partnership with CRISC and Independent Supporters Network we have lobbied for further recognition for supporters. One of the pillars of that lobbying was the installation of an independent Supporters Liaison Officer (SLO) for our National Teams and for the League of Ireland.

We had submitted details on how we envisaged this would work to the FAI back in 2019 and any of you who attended our Irish Football Supporters Forum at Lansdowne Road in November of that year may recall the IFSP presentation on it and the talk given by Swedish SLO Lena Gustafson Wiberg,

The lockdowns imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent absence of fans from stadia put a pause on the process but we are delighted to announce that the specifications of the National Team SLO role have now been agreed with the FAI and an application process is open.

The purpose of the National Team Supporter Liaison Officer(s) is to build and maintain dialogue between supporters, the FAI, and all match night stakeholders. SLOs focus on enhancing co-operation, understanding and a sense of partnership and community between supporters and stakeholders, with the aim of creating the best possible match experience for supporters.

Appointed SLO(s) will be expected to act as an advocate for supporters in preparation for and during National Team match days and fixtures. They are active in the build-up to fixtures, working closely with the match management team, to ensure smooth preparations. They are also active in and around the stadium before and during the on-field action both to pre-empt and address any concerns that arise. 

Support / Benefits
  • The NT SLO(s) will be reimbursed for any reasonable vouched expenses incurred while undertaking agreed tasks as part of role.
  • The NT SLO(s) will receive an FAI email, phone (for business use) and travel expenses to away matches in line with the SLO role requirements.
  • They will be part of planning meetings prior to competitive and friendly key international fixtures.
  • They will have access to and support from key personnel within the national association and supporter organisations.
  • They will receive access for all men’s NT games at the Aviva Stadium and other senior international games where needed in line with SLO role requirements
If any members are interested in applying for this position further details on the role and how to do so can be found by clicking on this link.

Please note that the closing date for applications is COB on Friday 23rd September 2022 and shortlisting will take place shortly afterwards.

Thank you for your continued support and safe travels to all heading for Glasgow.

It will be great to have an SLO who has the fans welfare and treatment at the top of his agenda as opposed to the current incumbent.
