Boost for Ireland Women as Hanley Energy renews team sponsorship
DUBLIN – In a boost of confidence for the Ireland Women’s cricket team, Hanley Energy has signed a two-year extension of its sponsor partnership with Cricket Ireland.
Despite the Ireland Women’s playing programme being majorly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, this welcome news is a much-needed boost that has shown both a commitment by Hanley Energy to support women’s cricket, and a vote of confidence in the future direction of the women’s game in Ireland.
Niall Franklin, Marketing Manager for Hanley Energy, said:
“Hanley Energy has proudly been a key partner of Irish Cricket since 2015, and sponsor of the women’s senior side specifically since 2017. We’re delighted to be extending our partnership for a further two years to 2023. The renewal will see us remain as the Official Sponsor of the Irish Senior Women’s Cricket Team and Official Technology Partner of Cricket Ireland.”
“We have a shared ambition with Cricket Ireland to grow the game on the island of Ireland. We are very proud that our support encompasses women’s, men’s and the Cricket Ireland game at all levels. Now with the extended partnership, we look forward and remain focused on supporting the transformation of our next generation of elite players.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to wish both International teams, management and backroom staff at Cricket Ireland every success for the year ahead. The Irish Senior women have two world cup qualifying campaigns this year, and we will be ‘Backing Green’ all the way.”
Dennis Cousins, Commercial Director for Cricket Ireland, said:
“Cricket Ireland is delighted that such a long-term partner as Hanley Energy has renewed their commitment to the sport, particularly their enthusiastic backing of the senior women’s team. It goes without saying that the last year has been a tough one for everyone, but it provides a great deal of confidence and pride for all involved in our great game to see our business supporters stick with us through such uncertain times.”
“Our thanks to CEO Clive Gilmore, Dennis Nordon and Niall Franklin and the whole team at Hanley Energy for their support – we hope that Irish cricket and Hanley Energy can continue to grow together over coming years.”
