Irish FA renews Ford partnership

The Football Association of Ireland has extended its partnership with US automotive manufacturer Ford.

The new agreement will run until the end of 2018 and will see Ford Ireland provide a fleet of new vehicles to the FAI. The cars will assist in the delivery of grassroots football initiatives.

Ford first partnered with the FAI in 2006 and supplies the organisation with over 30 vehicles each year. The dual-branded vehicles can be seen across Ireland as the FAI’s development officers and other representatives seek to promote the sport in the country.

FAI chief executive John Delaney said: “The partnership enables us to offer specific programmes that are delivered to every corner of the country at grassroots level, which is extremely important to the development of football in Ireland. Ford have always had a genuine passion for the game and we are delighted to be in a position to continue working closely with them going forward.”
