Attached you will find a press release and poster template to support your efforts to bring the St Patrick’s Day celebrations to your club (a little early!) and encourage the local community to watch the France V Ireland match in your rugby club on March 15th.
The poster can be displayed in local shops/post offices/credit unions etc while the press release can be issued to local media targeting the newspaper that will publish in the week of the 10th March (note that the editorial deadline for local newspapers can vary and you should check your local paper’s deadlines directly).
The poster images can be placed on your club website and promoted on your club Facebook page and on Twitter.
The template should be amended by your Public Relations Office to suit your event and should outline exactly what your club will offer on the day – for example, if you have the budget to do so you may wish to organise music, finger food or a children’s entertainer as this may allow parents to enjoy the club atmosphere – you may encourage people to dress up for the day!
