Cork City FC is delighted to confirm Eoin McCarthy been appointed as the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO).
The previous SLOs, Colm Cuddihy and Dinny Deady have both stepped down from their positions. The club is extremely grateful for the time and commitment that Colm and Dinny dedicated to the role.
In his own words:
I’m 32 and am a lifelong City fan. I’ve been a regular at both home and away games and I feel very strongly about supporter inclusion and I’m committed to working on behalf of the clubs’ supporters. I’m also relishing working with the exciting and vibrant board elected by the shareholders. I feel transparency is a key component in fostering good relationships between club and supporters, and feel we’ve never been in such a good position as a fans owned club in that regard.
As a supporter-owned, community football club, CCFC take immense pride in trying to create the best match night experience for all fans that come to Turner’s Cross and that work will continue with Eoin’s input for the rest of the season. The SLO role is included in both UEFA and FAI licensing requirements and advocates for supporters to be considered and represented not only on match nights but throughout the week.
The SLO will work with supporters, club staff and our security team, and focus on service and safety. We have diverse supporters groups around Turner’s Cross and the SLOs’ primary objective is to ensure everyone in the stadium has a great evening at the Cross and comes back time and time again.
Eoin will be actively seeking feedback and suggestions that they can include in his work at games over the coming weeks and supporters are invited to say “Hello” and share their thoughts. The SLO can also be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
