Tipperary Supporters Club Mascot Competition

We are very excited to announce a revamp of our Tipperary Supporters Club Junior Membership scheme, which will now be known as the Tipperary Supporters Club Mascot Competition. As in previous years, a young Tipperary supporter will have the opportunity to be the Tipperary Senior Hurling mascot at one of our home league fixtures.

The lucky mascot will:

• Sit with the team for the team photo

• Have photo taken with team captains and referee before the coin toss

• Join the Tipp FM team in the commentary box high in the Old Stand for the first half

• Be interviewed by the Tipp FM team at half time

And commencing 2019, the prize is even better!!

At half-time on the pitch, the mascot will be presented with the brand new Tipperary jersey, signed by all the Tipperary panel, by a Tipperary hurling star!

Do you know a young Tipperary hurling supporter who would love to win this prize?

Schools are reminded and encouraged to send news and updates of their progress in the hurling championships for the coming season. Reports can be a great writing topic for the classroom and are an opportunity for children to see their work published for a wider audience. In the pre-season championship build-up children could be given the chance to tell about their own training regiments and tips for the coming championship. A Reporter of the Week will be chosen and their work included in the weekly report. Please ensure all reports are a single paragraph in Verdana 10 type. All submissions should be proof-read by the teacher before submission.
