Game Stop


Make-A-Wish and GameStop Northern Europe are excited to announce a new corporate partnership, launched 29th September in five European countries, including Ireland. To kick off this partnership, GameStop will donate €1 for every FIFA ultimate team jersey sold in-store and online until 31st December, benefiting children with life-threatening medical conditions in Ireland.

Wish child, Oliver, age 10, launched the partnership on Friday in Dundrum Town Centre at an event which included a show by professional football freestyler Jamie MacDonald. Oliver is living with aplastic anaemia and had his wish granted in a GameStop store last spring. Oliver wished for ‘the whole game console package’ so he could play games before and after his transplant operation which required him to spend months in isolation. Oliver left the shop with PlayStation 4 with virtual reality accessories and lots of games. Oliver was totally thrilled.

According to Oliver’s mum, Laura, “getting his wish granted was, as Oliver said, the best day of his life. Make-A-Wish and GameStop made him feel so special and as a mum, seeing him so surprised, happy and excited was the best feeling ever.

GameStop are proud to support Make-A-Wish and to introduce this partnership to Northern Europe. We hope that not only will we be able to make the gaming wishes come true for the children of Make-A-Wish, but with this donation on each jersey sold, contribute to many other wishes and raise awareness of the great work of Make-A-Wish.
