Continental Tyres has become the official partner of Women’s Football in Ireland. In addition to becoming the main supporter of Irish women’s football, Continental has been named as the title sponsor of the Women’s National League which will be rebranded as the Continental Tyres Women’s National League. The company will also lend its name to the Continental Tyres Women’s FAI Cup, the Continental Tyres Women’s Senior FAI Cup and the FAI’s Elite Camps that foster the development of emerging football talent. The Continental Tyres Women’s National League new season kicks off on Sunday August 24.
Commenting on this announcement, Guy Frobisher, Continental Tyres Marketing Director for Region North said, “Continental has a long history of supporting football at every level from senior international through to club level and right down to grass roots and community football programmes, so we are delighted to extend that support to Ireland by becoming the official partner of women’s football here”.
John Delaney, CEO of the Football Association of Ireland, welcomed the new partnership: “We are very happy to bring Continental Tyres on board as official sponsor of women’s football in Ireland. Through the FAI’s Women’s Football Development plan, a lot of work has been done to grow participation numbers at all levels and that has paid real dividends. Continental Tyres has a strong track record of association with the women’s game internationally and they will make excellent title sponsors of our National League and Cup competitions to help us bring the women’s game forward.”
