Saints Extend Umbro Contract
Umbro Ireland in conjunction with St Patricks Athletic Football Club are delighted to announce an extension of the current kit sponsorship agreement between the two parties.
Umbro Ireland are proud to provide kit to the Saints and have been doing so since 2003.
The extension of the contract for 3 more seasons until the end of 2016 shows Umbro Irelands commitment to League of Ireland football.
Commenting on the deal Jonathan Courtenay MD of Umbro Ireland said “I'm delighted that we have been able to secure a 3 year extension with St Patricks Athletic, we are very excited with the clubs plans and with the growing momentum of the club on pitch.
Umbro is a true football brand and we value our partnerships with elite clubs like St Pat's.
We are enthused by the team and management and I would like to express my thanks to the Clubs management team for helping get the deal done in a professional and timely manner.
In Ireland no company spends more on Irish football than Umbro and we are always delighted to see the double diamond logo on the staff and fans of St Pat's in Inchicore”.
St Patrick's Athletic FC Club President Phil Mooney also commented on the deal
“We are delighted to extend our contract with Umbro Ireland and continue the longstanding relationship we have with them.
Our management teams have now started working closely together to design and pick our playing kit, team apparel and branded merchandise for the coming season.
We are particularly pleased that this new deal will also benefit our ever expanding youth section of the Club as well as our Special Olympics Football For All Teams.”
St Patrick's Athletic are currently joint top of the League and have just recently launched their new away jersey which is available to order and from the Club shop at 125 Emmet Road.
