Bord Gáis Energy maintains hurling commitment with GAA extension

Bord Gáis Energy has agreed a three-season extension to its sponsorship deal with the Gaelic Athletic Association for the Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship.

This year marks the third year of Bord Gáis Energy’s sponsorship of the Championship, which will now continue for a further three years to 2022.

Bord Gáis Energy’s Rewards Club customers and GAA fans will continue to enjoy match day experiences with access to tickets and ‘Cupán Tae’ events at key Championship fixtures throughout the summer.

The company’s hurling ambassadors will lead a series of #HurlingToTheCore training camps this season, mentoring young players who will have the opportunity to play at Croke Park stadium in Dublin. The camps will be exclusive to Bord Gáis Energy’s Rewards Club members with some additional places available via the firm’s social media channels.

Managing director of Bord Gáis Energy, Catherine O’Kelly, said: “We pride ourselves on being the Helpful Energy Company and are committed to making our customers’ lives easier.

“Our partnership with the GAA, which spans over a decade, also enables us to make a positive difference in communities across the country. These are the communities in which our customers live and work and therefore it is an extremely important part of what we do as an organisation.”

Bord Gáis Energy is also title sponsor of the U-20 GAA Hurling All-Ireland Championship and is the sponsor of the Legends Tours of Croke Park.
