Retailer And RTE Offers Kids Chance At Rugby Punditry


Aldi Ireland has launched the Aldi Kids Rugby Panel, it announced on Monday (January 16). The retailer has teamed up with RTE to give seven kids the chance at rugby punditry, which is part of its partnership with the IRFU.

The young pundits aged between 7 and 11 will offer viewers their live commentary during and after each of the RBS 6 Nations games.

Speaking at the launch of the Aldi Kids Rugby Panel, Group Buying Director of Aldi Stores Ireland, Finbar McCarthy said, “We are delighted to be partnering with the IRFU and RTE for The Aldi Kids Rugby Panel. As a business rooted in communities across the country for over 17 years, we’re committed to helping more young people throughout Ireland gain access to rugby in their local school. In September 2016 we launched the Aldi Play Rugby initiative, bringing the non-contact rugby programme to schools all over the country and with the Aldi Kids Rugby Panel we’re hoping to add something extra special to the RBS 6 Nations that all the family can get involved in.”

The retailer’s casting calls will be setting up shop in Galway, Cork, and Dublin on 21st and 22nd January.
