Cricket Ireland extends with main sponsor Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines has renewed its sponsorship of the Cricket Ireland national governing body.

The airline will retain its position as the organisation’s main sponsor for a further two years, until 2021. As part of the agreement, the Turkish Airlines’ logo will continue to feature on the shirts of Ireland’s men’s international team.

Dennis Cousins, commercial director for Cricket Ireland, said: “Since Ireland received full membership and Test status in 2017 we have seen an uplift in interest and awareness of the Irish cricket brand, and as a result we have been able to invest back into the sport.

“It is a great sign that our commercial partners are on board with both our objectives as an organisation and our values as a sport. That one of the world’s biggest airlines is committed to our sport is a boost for all involved in the Irish cricket community and reflects well on Ireland as an important global market for business and investment.”

Turkish Airlines first partnered with Cricket Ireland in April 2017.
