Head In The Game (HITG) is a supporter-led mental health initiative, aimed at helping members of the Irish football community. The movement was established in September 2020 following the passing of Harry Taaffe, Dundalk FC videographer.
The campaign aims to provoke a discussion about mental health and well-being to create awareness about mental illness. HITG have partnered with two mental health charities, Jigsaw (www.jigsaw.ie) and Shine (www.shine.ie), to help signpost people towards professional services.
To raise funds for this extremely important campaign, at PlayerStat Data we will donate €20 for each goal scored across the weekend of the 29th of May in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division, First Division and Women’s National League.
We are also asking any clubs, individuals, businesses, or organisations interested to join us in donating to HITG for each goal over the last weekend in May. This campaign deserves widespread support – join us in helping to raise as much cash as possible to allow HITG to drive the campaign further & further.
