As title sponsor of the FAI Club Mark Programme, an award based on best practice in the governance, management and administration of a football club, Circle K is giving customers the chance to nominate their local grassroots football club to win one of eight prizes ranging from €10,000 to €30,000. Circle K are calling on the people of Dublin support their local clubs by entering this groundbreaking competition. Nominations opened on October 4 and the closing date for entries is  December 5.
