Lidl entice Ireland’s TikTokers to LGFA games with €50k shopping discount offer in first-of-its-kind social campaign

Shoppers can score their share of €50k in Lidl discounts by sharing social content from the TG4 All Ireland Championship knock-out games as part of new #LidlShootToSave campaign

 
Dublin, 2nd July 2024: Lidl is enticing Ireland’s 3 million TikTokers to ‘Get Behind the Fight’ and attend the knock-out stages of the 2024 TG4 All Ireland LGFA Championships by offering them serious discounts at the till if they post video clips of on-field action from Championship deciders.
Pledging an investment of €50,000 into shopper discounts, attendees who post on-field action on TikTok from any of the knock-out games across the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championships and tag @LidlIreland on TikTok using #LidlShootToSave, can earn a discount of up to €20 on their next shop through their Lidl Plus app in any of Lidl’s 179 stores around the country.
Lidl launched its hard-hitting ‘Get Behind the Fight’ campaign earlier this year to help increase attendance at Ladies Gaelic Football fixtures after new research unveiled by the retailer found that 59% of Irish people have never attended a live women’s sporting event despite three quarters (74%) of the public thinking it is a shame that people don’t attend. Comparatively, just over a quarter (29%) of Irish people said they have never attended a live men’s event.
Ahead of the Championship knock-out games, Lidl Ireland is calling on all TikTok sports fans to support their female county stars in the TG4 All Ireland Championships by launching a first-of-its-kind rewards initiative harnessing the power of social media to drive awareness and attendance.
The campaign taps into the Get Behind the Fight research findings which show that 42% of Irish people who are interested in attending female sports events seek out information on fixtures through social media, whilst 36% rely on friends and family. Launching this innovative initiative exclusively through TikTok, the campaign seeks to create a new connection between LGFA and the Irish public, whilst continuing to demonstrate Lidl’s serious support for female athletes.
Eimear O’SullivanCorporate Affairs Director Lidl Ireland & Northern Ireland, said, “We are continuing our ‘Get Behind the Fight’ campaign with this innovative TikTok social discount offer as we look to not only drive attendance at Ladies Gaelic Football fixtures but also increase the visibility of the sport across this popular social media platform. 
 
The latest figures show that over 3 million people in Ireland are using TikTok and a large proportion of them are female or aged under 35. This is a key audience for Ladies Gaelic Football, and we hope to encourage them to attend fixtures and share footage of the incredible female athletes competing in the TG4 All Ireland Championships.
 
I am proud that Lidl is again leading the charge by being the first retailer to harness the power of social media to raise the profile of female sport and reward our customers.  The discounts which range from €5 to €20 will provide a strong incentive for people to attend, promote and celebrate the achievements of our Ladies Gaelic footballers in the crunch Championship Fixtures.”
 
 
Lidl Ireland’s ‘Get Behind the Fight’ campaign has been backed by a number of sporting heroes and social influencers, including famed Gaelic football analyst and former Derry player Joe Brolly and personal trainer and influencer Louise Cody.
Mícheál Naughton, LGFA President, said: “It is great to see this innovative initiative from Lidl Ireland which provides a strong incentive to attend Championship fixtures and promote the quality that is on show on the field.  Social media is such a powerful communications tool and can drive the levels of engagement and visibility of Ladies Gaelic Football to new levels. Lidl launched the ‘Get Behind the Fight’ campaign earlier in the year just ahead of the Lidl National Football Leagues and have been driving a positive message about growing attendance at LGFA fixtures across the year.  I am sure that the #LidlShootToSave discount will prove very popular and expose new people to the skill and excitement of the Championships.”

  • €5 discount for content with over 25 likes
  • €10 discount for content with over 50 likes
  • €15 discount for content with over 75 likes
