Galway announce €250,000 camogie sponsorship deal

The county board reveals first standalone sponsorship deal from senior to U14 level

The Galway county camogie board has announced a new €250,000 sponsorship deal with Westerwood Global. The deal is a standalone one that solely covers camogie sides representing the county.

The five year deal secures Westerwood the sponsorship rights for all of the county’s camogie teams from U14 level to the current senior All-Ireland champions.

Westerwood’s logo will feature on all jerseys, training kit and leisure wear, while the company will also have branding rights for interview backdrops controlled by Galway camogie and on various promotional materials including social media channels, programes, magazines, brochures, and advertisements.

Brian Griffin, Chairman of Galway Camogie County Board said: “What is different about this deal is that it has been conceived and negotiated as a standalone deal for camogie in Galway. We believe it is the first significant sponsorship for a county that recognises the substantial commercial value of camogie in its own right, and it sets a new benchmark for the sport.”

“Women’s sport is transforming. A few years ago, our ambition for sponsorship was to be able to defray the costs of jerseys and kits for our teams. Now we will have substantial sums of money to invest directly to support camogie across the county. Every girl and young woman who plays camogie in Galway will benefit from this deal. It transforms our ambitions for the coming years.”
