Mash Direct’s Sports Champ-ionships, which launched on the 29th July, is well underway!  Mash Direct is calling on sports clubs throughout Ireland and the UK to get Mash fit with some incredible prizes up for grabs!

Mash Direct has teamed up with a variety of sporting stars and personalities, to offer the winning prize of a £5,000 sponsorship package and an exclusive training session with two of the Champ-ionship judges. Not only that, the all-star line-up of judges getting behind this campaign is quite the team and includes former Ulster, Ireland and Lions rugby player Rory Best OBE, Italian international rugby star, Ian McKinley, Irish international and Arsenal footballer Katie McCabe, as well as BBC presenter and journalist Holly Hamilton. Follow the judges on social media for some inspiring advice and motivation to get onboard.  

Teams will be required to complete an online application form (, detailing why they are the most suitable team to win the £5,000sponsorship package.  Teams will then create a short video showcasing their skills and incorporating Mash Direct into their training sessions.  Examples of which could include dribbling around Mash Direct Mashed Potato or creating goalposts using several packets of creamy champ, using a carrot as a baton in a relay race or a cauliflower as a basketball!

Speaking at the launch of the Champ-ionships, Rory Best said: ‘I’m delighted to team up with Mash Direct to encourage players to rekindle their love of sport. It’s great to see everyone coming out of lockdown and getting active together again, so what better way than to introduce a little friendly competition to get everyone back on the pitch.’

Clare Forster, Head of Marketing at Mash Directcommented: ‘Over the last number of months there has been a massive disruption to sports teams’ activity levels so we want to encourage everyone to get back on the pitch and what better an incentive than a £5,000sponsorship package! Despite the disruption to training schedules and competitive matches over the last few months it’s now more important than ever to encourage people to increase their physical fitness levels, eat healthy nutritious food and to get back to where they were pre-lockdown.’

Entries are open until 30th August and to be in with a chance of winning, teams will need to visit, fill out a form and enter a short video on the Mash Direct social channels.
