WIN UP TO €50,000 FOR YOUR LOCAL SECONDARY SCHOOL
The Lidl Plus LGFA Rewards Scheme returns to the Lidl Plus app on Monday, 4th of September to help secondary schools earn rewards to support their Ladies Gaelic Football teams. Show #SeriousSupport for your local secondary school by following these 3 easy steps:
Guaranteed rewards start at a set of new jerseys for 50 stamp cards and increase in value up to €5,000 for 500 or more stamp cards. All schools to collect a minimum of 50 stamp cards will also have the chance to win the €50,000 grand prize or 3 x €10k runners up prizes by telling us why they should win and what LGFA project(s) they would spend the money on
See how many stamp cards your school has collected on our tracker. The tracker is updated every Monday and Thursday until the end of the campaign so please be aware the totals are not in real time.
Schools that receive a minimum of 50 completed stamp cards will also be automatically nominated to participate in the #SeriousSupport Schools Programme – more details of which can be found below. Chosen schools will be offered a place on the programme after the rewards scheme ends on 22nd of October.
And finally, to reward our wonderful customers who are supporting their local school, the first 10,000 people to complete and submit a stamp card will receive a limited edition LGFA 50th anniversary jersey. The jersey was designed by 7 year old Aoife Callanan from Cork who was beat tens of thousands of entries to be declared the winner of our competition which ran earlier this year. Successful customers will be notified via Lidl Plus with instructions on how to claim their jersey.

The #SeriousSupport Schools Programme is back!
We are delighted that the LGFA-backed secondary schools athlete mentor programme has returned for the 2022-23 school year.
Delivered in conjunction with children’s charity the Youth Sport Trust and our team of specially trained inter-county footballers, we are committed to teaching students about the long-term physical and mental health benefits of playing ladies’ Gaelic football and aim to increase participation and reduce drop-out rates for teenage girls. Our athlete mentors will deliver the programme through classroom workshops and on-pitch training sessions in schools in every county.
All schools that receive 50 stamp cards or more in the LGFA Rewards Scheme will automatically be nominated for the 2023-24 programme. Chosen schools in each county will be offered a place on the programme after the LGFA Rewards Scheme ends.
BEHIND THE SCENES
GO BEHIND THE SCENES
Shot on location in Glendalough, Co. Wicklow way back in early 2020, the campaign is a visual representation of the uphill battle that ladies Gaelic footballers and women in sport face in striving for equality. We went behind the scenes to capture the atmosphere and camaraderie among the players as they give everything to Level The Playing Field.

We went behind the scenes with our Lidl One Good Club ambassadors, Carla Rowe of Dublin and Nicola Ward from Galway as they faced crucial games during the group stages of the 2020 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. Get an insight into how they prepare for battle and watch as the games unfold from their perspective.

Carla’s all action performance and 3 points from play were instrumental in a hard-fought 17 points to 1-10 victory over Waterford which secured a place in the semi-finals for the Girls In Blue.

Galway v Monaghan
Nicola’s intervention in setting up the winning goal, along with her role at the heart of the Galway defence, helped the Tribeswomen hold off a dramatic Monaghan fightback and seal a place in the semi-finals by a single point.
