Connacht rugby has received a massive boost ahead of the new season with Bank of Ireland extending their sponsorship of the side for another three years.
The agreement between Connacht and Bank of Ireland is one of the longest running sponsorship arrangements since the game went professional in the mid nineties.
Donal Flynn, Regional Manager – West, Bank of Ireland, is delighted to be extending their support of the side by a further three seasons and is looking forward to the start of the upcoming campaign in September.
“We in Bank of Ireland are very proud to be associated with Connacht rugby. We have been proud sponsors of Connacht rugby since 1996 and it is our biggest sponsorship in Connacht. On behalf of the bank, I wish Michael and the team the very best of luck in the coming season.”
Connacht CEO Gerry Kelly said he was delighted that Bank of Ireland were extending their sponsorship of the team.
“This is a great boost for Connacht and for rugby in the West of Ireland and we are delighted that Bank of Ireland will be on board for the next three years. We have built up a strong relationship over the years and we are very much looking forward to continuing that for the next three seasons.”
Connacht play Harlequins at the Sportsground on Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m.
