Irish FA unveils Danske Bank as new Premiership sponsors

Tue 31st Jul 2012 | Football Sponsorship

The Irish FA have announced Danske Bank as the new title sponsor of the Premiership.

The Danske Bank Premiership, as the league will now be named, kicks off on 11 August and marks a significant investment by the bank in local football.

Irish FA Chief Executive Patrick Nelson is excited by the new sponsorship, saying:   “We are absolutely delighted to announce this sponsorship.  The Danske Bank Premiership is the flagship competition in domestic football in Northern Ireland and is followed by thousands of loyal supporters each week.

“Danske Bank is a great example of the calibre of partners that we are attracting and working with. This investment into the highest level of our local game will be a huge support in developing the league; and along with media exposure, will undoubtedly help to raise the Premiership’s profile and attendance at games around the country.”

Northern Bank Chief Executive Gerry Mallon said: “The Danske Bank Premiership is a really significant and exciting sponsorship for us and marks the first time our new brand identity will be visible in the market.

“This is another sign of Danske Bank’s commitment to the local market.  Like ourselves, the Irish FA has a long heritage in Northern Ireland as an integral part of the local community so this Premiership sponsorship is a great fit for both organisations.  We look forward to working in partnership with the Irish FA and to the start of the new season.”
