This will be the first time ever that the NFG’s – National Fitness Games – a unique test of power, endurance, speed and strength – will take place outside of the UK, running April 22-24 at University College Dublin (UCD), and the team at McSport will bring their expert knowledge to this important sponsorship
Dublin has been selected as the first destination outside of the UK for the NFG FitGames, which has established a strong footprint in Britain since it was founded by former rugby international Kenny Logan and Mark Hartnett-Morgan in 2018.
