Saints Announce New Sponsors
St Patrick's Athletic F.C. are delighted to announce Clune Construction L.P. as the Clubs main sponsor for the 2013 season.
Clune Construction L.P. is one of the USA's largest interior construction management firms with offices in Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York. Founded in 1979 by Irish man Mike Clune, the firm currently employs over 180 staff.
Their sponsorship of St Patrick's Athletic will be part of their marketing strategy to launch the Clune Construction L.P. brand in Ireland and in Europe.
Speaking on behalf of St Patrick's Athletic F.C. Club Chairman Garrett Kelleher commented “I have known Mike Clune for over 25 years. We both emigrated to Chicago around the same time.
Clune Construction L.P. is not only one of the largest interior construction firms in the U.S. but one of the most reputable and we are very fortunate to have such a high calibre sponsor.
As a hard working and successful sporting organization we feel Clune Construction is an appropriate and fitting partner.
We feel the collaboration will provide numerous successes both on and off the field and will give the supporters and the team a great boost ahead of our journey to Europe this July for the Europa League.”
Commenting on the announcement, Chairman Mike Clune said "We are excited to form a partnership with this great iconic Irish sporting institution as we continue to promote our brand in Ireland and on the global stage".
St Patrick's Athletic will be sporting the Clune Construction L.P. logo on their home kits for Friday's top of the table clash against Derry City in Richmond Park.
Kick off at 7.45pm. Tickets are on sale from the Club office.
