Connacht Rugby has agreed a new two-year partnership deal with Irish Citylink which will become its official coach partner.
It comes a week after Deep RiverRock became the official water and hydration partner to all Connacht representative teams until the end of the 2015/16 rugby season.
Citylink will provide coach travel for the Connacht professional teams and all Connacht representative teams, while also providing preferential rates for all rugby clubs in Connacht.
The deal will see a new Connacht Rugby and Citylink co-branded coach on the roads. When not being used by the team, the Connacht bus will commute between Dublin airport and Galway.
David Conway, business operations manager of Citylink, is delighted to join forces with Connacht Rugby.
“ Our top-of-the-range luxury coaches and frequent direct services are a perfect match for a top class rugby team. We look forward to welcoming the team and supporters on board.”
Connacht Rugby commercial and marketing executive Eoin Banahan added:"It is great to develop another official partnership with a company based here in Connacht. The professional team has 12 return trips to the airport per season, so it is essential to have a bus which is both spacious and modern."
