Belfast Telegraph partners with Irish FA

Tue 18th Oct 2011 | Football Sponsorship

The Irish FA have announced the Belfast Telegraph as the new title sponsor of the IFA Championship.  The leagues will now be called the Belfast Telegraph Championship 1 and 2 for the remainder of the 2011/12 season.

Aidan Murphy, Chairman of the Championship Management Committee, is delighted at the new sponsorship deal.  He said:  “It is fantastic for the Championship to have the Belfast Telegraph as its new title sponsor. 

“It is the highest selling daily newspaper in Northern Ireland and this new sponsorship will be a benefit not only to our football clubs, but it also for the Belfast Telegraph as the Championship clubs are based right across the length and breadth of Northern Ireland. 

“The sponsorship provides a much needed financial boost to the clubs and also gives the Championship a guaranteed media platform to raise the profile of the competition.”

Martin Mawhinney, editor of the Belfast Telegraph's junior football supplement, The Park stated: "We are proud of our association with local football, and this agreement shall strengthen our commitment to the Championship.

“We will continue to bring our readers the first news of the big stories in Championship One and Two, every Monday, with reporter Keith Bailie keeping supporters up to date with what's happening around the clubs, as well as our weekly round-up of the weekend's matches.


"The Park is the first publication with the latest on the junior and intermediate scene each week, and we look forward to developing our relationship with clubs up and down the country."
