Limerick-based Technology and Innovation firm ActionPoint have today launched the World Cup Warm-up event in aid of the LIVE 95 Helping Limerick Children initiative. The event takes place in Thomond Park on 12th September at 7.30 am and will bring stars from the rugby world together for breakfast, world cup predictions and some tales from behind the scenes.
LIVE 95’s Luke Liddy will chair a panel that includes Grand Slam Winner and professional referee Joy Neville along with Munster stars Tyler Bleyendaal, JJ Hanrahan and many more from the rugby world. The panel will talk World Cup preparations, the challenges of preparing for the big day while sharing some entertaining anecdotes along with predictions for Joe Schmidt’s troops. There will also be a data panel led by Pierre Visser, Rugby Technical Consultant at Stats Perform where the focus will be on how sports tech and big data will play a major role in the upcoming World Cup. The organisers have also said there are one or two big name guests to be announced in the coming days so the message is 'watch this space'.
Speaking at the launch in Thomond Park, CEO of ActionPoint David Jeffreys said, “We’re delighted to be supporting the LIVE 95 Helping Limerick Children initiative. These charities are providing amazing support to children in society who are most in need and this event is just our way of supporting their continued work. The goal now is to make sure we raise as much money as possible and I hope that we get the full support of businesses and people locally."
On behalf of the charities involved Brendan Ring from Cliona’s said, “It’s wonderful to have companies like ActionPoint and Dell Technologies behind our Live 95 Helping Limerick Children initiative. The stage is set and we have a fantastic event in the making and now we’re hoping that the business community can support this great initiative along with any individual rugby fans who would like to soak up the pre-tournament atmosphere.”
