    Every innovation helps. And a good news story for a change.

    A toss up between this and the LOI finances thread for this but Dan McDonnell has a few numbers on the money the league is costing/ bringing in through sponsorship, league revenue to the FAI is approx €1.5m currently and they're saying it costs them €1.5m which is conveniently coincidental!

    https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...-38519142.html

    Sponsorship generates north of €400,000 with the bulk of that figure coming from title sponsor Airtricity (sources say the league element of their deal comes in at around €250,000-€300,000), while EA are also key partners.


    Similarly, the contract with main broadcast partner RTÉ also includes the rights for two senior international friendlies and women's international matches so clubs are now working off the belief that the value of the LOI element also comes in at around €250,000. Eir Sport pay a smaller six-figure sum for the rights to show games.


    The remainder of the €1.5m coming into the FAI coffers is drawn from the clubs themselves in the form of the unpopular affiliation fees (which peaks at €19,000 per Premier Division club), payments for refereeing costs (thought to be around €300,000 per annum) and fine payments (averaging around €70,000).


    Where have the FAI suggested they are spending €1.5m? Prize-money payments (€475,000) and match costs (circa €420,000) made up the lion's share in 2017.

    Not at all copying Sligo's idea, but there's now a Northound-brewed Derry City beer on sale, which money to the club from sales (£1/L).
    Seems not to be a seasonal thing, like Sligo's was. Considering Northbound sponsors the club anyway, and they already make a lager, it makes complete sense.

    Have you ever won the treble?

    Completely different ... sure ours was €1/pint and yours is £1/liter.
    Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
    Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
    Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!

    The league's official website is an embarrassment. No live scores, takes them a day or two to update results and tables.

    It seems to be updated to me now anyway in terms of results and tables. But goals and statistics are not.

    I suspect some of the data (especially subs and bookings) is only updated once the ref has submitted the match report. And who knows how long it takes the ref to submit it. That's not to say that only the refs are to blame.

    What is the story with the poor quality of graphics LOI clubs are putting out? Been going on a long time now.

    Longford appear to be making an effort with theirs but they're actually really poor. But it was Cabinteely's effort today which took the biscuit (https://twitter.com/Cabinteely_FC/st...49312271130624). They'd have been better off with a text only tweet, if that's the best they could come up with.

    A lot of the time the approach in the LOI is "sure it'll do", "it's grand", "it's better than nothing", but surely it's not that hard to put decent match graphics / posters together for promotion.

    Poor effort that one. I wouldn’t say you’d have to be a graphic designer to improve it.

    Not the best day to launch it but they’ve launched a commercial pass for WatchLOI for pubs, restaurants etc.

    If the streaming service sticks around as a long term thing it’s not a bad idea. Can’t see many publicans signing up in the near future though

    Christ that’s awful. Surely Larry knows someone with a bit of a creative side
