Last-minute buying for a sports fan this Christmas? The42 Membership is the ideal gift

Treat them to a year of the very best Irish sports analysis and storytelling.

WHAT DO YOU buy the sports fan in your life for Christmas? 

Well, if they love sport – whether they’re a hardcore follower who’s named their dog after Jurgen Klopp, or a more casual fan who just enjoys watching the game – The42 membership is the perfect gift.

Joining The42’s membership community will take their love of sport to the next level. It unlocks a host of exclusive benefits, week after week – from podcasts, to email newsletters, to members-only events and prizes. 

Members get to go behind the headlines, to the sport stories that really matter. They see sport differently. 

What do they get?

  • Have a friend who never misses the rugby? They’ll get exclusive access to the thoughts of Ireland’s best rugby analyst Murray Kinsella (as seen on RTÉ and Eir Sport) in Rugby Insiders – one of a number of exclusive newsletters they will receive to their inbox each week.  
  • Is your loved one a football-mad Ireland fan? They’ll hear from fellow fanatics Gavin Cooney, Paul Dollery and more on The Football Family – just one of a number of great members-only sports podcasts.
  • Or perhaps you have a relative who’s never happier than when they’re going full John Mullane for their county? GAA supporters get to join our VIP-area WhatsApp group for live chat with our journalists and fellow fans (don’t worry, we have them for other sports too). Not to mention the inside track from Fintan O’Toole and others in GAA Insiders.

Oh, and there are exclusive live events, prizes, and much more. 

In short, an annual The42 membership will help make your friend, relative or loved one the best-informed person watching the match. (Whether they choose to share their insights with anyone else is up to them.)

For just €42 for a full year, that’s incredible value.

How does it work?

When you sign someone up for the gift package, they will instantly receive an email with a message from you and a short video explaining all the benefits of The42 membership.

That means it’s ideal if you’re stuck for last-minute present ideas. Alternatively, if you’re buying now but handing the gift over a little later, you can send the gift email to yourself and print it out to hand to them in person.

So give the gift of sport this Christmas, and treat someone to the very best Irish sports analysis and storytelling.
