Finder's Fee: new venues needed!
Thursday 12 September 2019 11:01


Every year, as the summer ends, the number of available tag venues decreases. Rugby and hockey clubs return to regular season commitments and there is a shortage of suitable floodlit all-weather venues in Dublin. 

At the same time, we operate lengthy waiting lists of teams who want to play but for whom we have no space. 

We are on the lookout for floodlit artificial grass and astroturf surfaces that are suitable for 7- and 8-a-side tag rugby games. We are aware of most existing Dublin venues. However, we are looking for leads on new venues, plans to build new venues which we can get in on early, or connections who can grease the wheels on a previously unsuccessful booking attempt. 

If you are aware of a venue that we can use within the boundaries of the M50 please email the details to A finder’s fee of 100 euro is available for anyone who brings to our attention a venue matching the above description that ends up being used by us. 

The venue can be pre-existing but we are particularly interested in venues which are in the planning stages or in the process of being built.

Sell us Your Existing Booking!

We are also interested in taking over existing bookings. So for example if your company books a football pitch once a week for 90 minutes of casual football, but then decides to end the weekly game, we'd be interested in taking over your booking!

* The finder's fee terms & conditions are:

  • To qualify for the finder's fee, an ITRA league must be run at the referred venue between the months of September and April, for at least two leagues with a minimum eight teams in the leagu
  • The finder's fee venue must be a venue not previously known to/booked by ITRA (unless you are selling us an existing booking). However, if you can get us onto a venue (via your connections) that we've been unable to book, you will still be eligible for the finder's fee. The finders fee would also be paid to anyone who can pass us on a suitable existing booking they no longer wish to use.
  • The venue must be booked by ITRA within three months of the referral for a league. The league must take place on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening.
  • If a venue has more than one referral, the finder's fee payment will go to the first referral. 
  • In the case of where you are selling us an existing booking, agreement must also be made with the hirers so that they are aware we are taking over your booking.
  • Payment will be made at the conclusion of the second league held at the venue.
