Connacht Rugby and Irish Citylink extend Partnership

Irish Citylink, one of Ireland’s leading private coach operators, continues its valued partnership with Connacht Rugby as the Official Coach Supplier!

One of Irish Citylink’s longest-running sponsorship relationships is set to continue as they take their partnership to a new level with their newly branded Connacht Rugby Team Coach. Irish Citylink began sponsoring Connacht Rugby in 2017. Connacht Rugby and Irish Citylink have agreed on a further two-year deal that means Irish Citylink is the Official Coach Supplier for the Senior Men and Women’s Teams for the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 seasons. 

Ciara Rosney, Irish Citylink’s Head of Marketing and Public Relations, says: “We are absolutely delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with Connacht Rugby. This sponsorship encompasses the aligned values of Irish Citylink and Connacht Rugby, two brands that are at the heart of communities in Connacht. Our shared values and commitment to the communities in which we serve is at the heart of what we do, and we look forward to continuing this partnership over the next two years.”

The newly branded Connacht Rugby Team Coach was created in celebration of this partnership and to showcase the alignment of two strong brands that are proud to be from the province of Connacht. The design incorporates elements of both the Connacht Rugby and Irish Citylink brands, using the proud colours of Connacht Rugby along with the distinctive paint strokes design on the Citylink coaches.   

Philip Patterson, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Connacht Rugby, says: “Irish Citylink has been a proud partner of ours for many years, so we’re extremely pleased to continue our relationship. Irish Citylink play a vital role for our Professional and Women’s teams, and the newly branded Team Coach will showcase our partnership all over the country. Both organisations also share the same values and ethos, so we look forward to working together into the future.”

Irish Citylink continues to make a strong presence in the local Galway sports community by continuing this partnership and supporting sports organisations in Galway.
