Shirt sponsor extends with Irish champion

League of Ireland Premier Division football club Dundalk has agreed a two-season extension to its deal with main shirt sponsor Fyffes.

The fruit and fresh produce company will continue to enjoy front-of-shirt branding in domestic and European competitions throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons, whilst also maintaining a strong presence at Dundalk’s Oriel Park stadium.

Fyffes has historic links to the town through its ownership by the McCann family and the fact that its operational base and many of its employees hail from the region.

Fyffes’ managing director, Gerry Cunningham, said: “Our strategy of reviewing all Fyffes’ sponsorships is one that remains in place and will continue to apply across the board, including our sponsorship of Dundalk FC.

“However, when the club’s exciting plans for the forthcoming season were shared with us, our decision to continue what has been an exceedingly successful sponsorship became very compelling.”

Dundalk completed the double of the Premier Division title and FAI Cup triumph in 2018.
