Aviva Studios: community and sustainability

Our partnership with Factory International is wide reaching, with support of community and social initiatives like the award-winning free skills programme Factory Academy and an affordable ticketing programme; Aviva £10 Tickets, which ensures that the arts can be experienced and enjoyed by as many people as possible.

Factory Academy

We're proud to be a Principal Partner of Factory Academy. Factory International’s award-winning skills training programme which provides opportunities for careers in Manchester’s ever-growing creative industries. A core aim of the Factory Academy is to diversify the workforce in an increasingly important sector for the region, through free and accessible training courses.

Our support of this programme will help grow the number of places on the courses, support participants with financial literacy and ultimately contribute to long-term employment in Manchester and the North-West.

Aviva Stadium

A truly world class sporting arena, Aviva Stadium, has been the site of some of Ireland's most historic sporting achievements since it opened its doors in 2010. Aviva Stadium is the home to both the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) and the Football Association of Ireland (FAI). 

It's with no small degree of pride that Aviva sponsors this inspirational arena, and we commit ourselves to encouraging the ambitions and enhancing the futures of every young rugby and soccer player in Ireland.

Aviva Stadium continues to impress its visitors with its stunning architecture, advanced engineering and sustainable practices. But most importantly the atmosphere generated inside the stadium is truly unique.

Aviva Mini Rugby

Aviva Mini Rugby National and Provincial Festivals aim to support the participation in the sport at a grassroots level for youths across Ireland.

The ethos of mini rugby is to foster and develop young players (boys and girls) of all ability in the game of rugby in a safe, non-competitive, enjoyable environment through activities which ensure progressive skill development for all participants.

Thousands of young boys and girls from clubs all over Ireland take part in the Aviva Minis Festivals every year. There are four provincial festivals each season followed by the highlight of the year - the Aviva Mini Rugby National Festival in Aviva Stadium.

Aviva Soccer Sisters

The FAI Aviva Soccer Sisters Programme has been invaluable to the development and growth of the women’s game in Ireland over the last decade. The programme was created under the 'Introduction to Football' banner and its aims to increase the number of girls playing football while utilising facilities countrywide.

Since its inception, over 30,000 participants have been involved in the programmes, which has led to the formation of new clubs and / or girl’s sections in clubs throughout Ireland. These programmes are also designed to attract new volunteers into football, and to support the long-term future of the women’s game played at venues countrywide. Girls can learn to play soccer in a fun, friendly and safe environment.
