Daily Mirror has teamed up with N.I Civil Service Sports Association (NICSSA) as sponsors of the exciting new PlayBall facility at Stormont. PlayBall, which has been funded to the tune of 2.4m from Sport NI & NICSSA, consists of a range of new state of the art all weather pitches, including 8 multi sport pitches & 1 water based hockey pitch.

Huge interest has already been evident from schools, youth groups, hockey clubs and both professional and amateur football clubs. Gerry Kelly, CEO of NICSSA is confident that PlayBall is just what Northern Ireland needs;

Gerry said "I am delighted to welcome the Daily Mirror as a media sponsor for the new PlayBall facility which is on schedule to open in early July 2010.  I believe that this unique partnership between one of Northern Ireland’s most popular daily newspapers and PlayBall multi sports facility will make a significant contribution to the development of both recreational and competitive sport in Northern Ireland."

PlayBall will hopefully encourage more sporting activities in the area, and with the Mirror on board it is expected that the profile and all it has to offer, will be raised, encouraging the public to use and enjoy the absolute best that pitch technology has to offer.

Mark Whyte, daily Mirror Marketing Manager, said of this new partnership “ The PlayBall facility is a hugely exciting and much-needed development for the sporting community in Northern Ireland and the daily Mirror is privileged to be able to lend its support to the complex.  We look forward to welcoming the future stars of Northern Ireland sport to the PlayBall’s Daily Mirror pitch and to working with the facility on new initiatives to better provide for resource-starved clubs here” 

PlayBall is now taking pitch bookings for the summer and will kick off with a brand new Summer Scheme throughout July & August.  Limited places are still available, for further details or booking please call 028 9076 5770.
