Drogheda United rename stadium ‘Head in the Game Park’ for 2021 season to raise awareness for Mental Health

 

Drogheda United have renamed their stadium the Head in the Game Stadium for the 2021 season.

The Head in the Game association is a mental health group that raises awareness for mental health within the LOI community.

Local Councillor Joanna Byrne selected the new name via a patrons draw.

Joanna commented: “I’m acutely aware that we face a significant mental health challenge in Ireland in the coming years. I have seen young Drogheda fans with banners saying “it’s ok not to be ok” and I think it’s wonderful that younger people are confronting the stigma of mental health. I really hope the renaming of United Park takes this a step further”.

Chairperson of Head In The Game, Dean Arrowsmith, commented: “The pandemic has made life tough for a lot of people. We want to work on breaking down stigma and getting people to speak to one another when they’re having a difficult day or week. We hope our campaign can do a lot of good over the season ahead. I want to thank the team in Drogheda United for getting us involved and for their ongoing support; it’s a privilege for us as a group and we hope our campaign can be embraced right throughout the League”.
