Audi Athlone is to continue as title sponsor of Buccaneers Rugby Football Club for a sixth season.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Buccaneers president, Eddie Walsh, said: “The club is extremely proud and grateful that Audi Athlone is again title sponsor for the coming season. A very exciting year beckons, with strong club ambitions. Audi is a superb and distinctive brand which, like Buccaneers, strives to be best in class.
“Buccaneers now field over 20 teams and our minis and youths sections continue to grow. The club will field girls U15 and U18 teams for the first time this season and the generous patronage of Audi Athlone enables the club to continue to invest in this player participation and development and it is very much appreciated.”
On behalf of Audi Athlone, Mr Ian Moore said: “We are delighted to again support Buccaneers and are looking forward to continue working with the club as their official sponsor for a sixth season. It is a great honour to be connected with Buccaneers. Our colleagues in Audi Ireland are also delighted to be associated with a rugby club of the calibre and prestige of Buccaneers and they see our association as mutually beneficial.
“It gives me and our staff a great sense of pride to be connected with such a creative and progressive team that, like ourselves, is not phased by change or future challenges - Audi Athlone has undergone substantial change and moved to a new state-of-the-art showroom where they employ close on 50 people. On behalf of all the team at Audi Athlone, I wish Buccaneers, all members and loyal supporters, great success and enjoyment during the season.”
