Connacht banks new shirt sponsor

Irish Pro14 rugby union club Connacht has entered into a kit sponsorship deal with the Bank of Ireland.

The three-year agreement will cover Bank of Ireland branding placement on the front of Connacht’s home, away and European playing jerseys.

Bank of Ireland’s logo will also feature on Connacht’s training jerseys.

Gemma Bell, sponsorship manager at the Bank of Ireland said: “Connacht Rugby has a long tradition and presence in local communities with a very devoted fan base which is what makes the partnership such an excellent fit for Bank of Ireland.

“This partnership now places Bank of Ireland at the heart of rugby across the island of Ireland and supports the Bank’s broader programme of activity to support and drive the local economy through initiatives like our Enterprise events and Youth programme for schools.”

Bank of Ireland has a similar agreement in place with Connacht’s Pro14 rival, Leinster.
