Renault Ireland is the title sponsor of the 2019 GAA World Games, which will bring some 1,300 players from 10 regions around the globe home to play this summer.
This will mark the third edition of the competition, with the initial stages to be played at the Sports Campus of Waterford Institute of Technology in Carriganore from July 28 to August 1, and the finals on August 2 at Croke Park.
Confirmation of Renault Ireland as title sponsors of the World Games further enhances the growing relationship between the carmaker and the GAA.
In addition to the World Games, a three-year partnership as official car partner to the GAA and GPA cements Renault’s ongoing support for the GAA.
Renault Ireland has been the county sponsor for the Westmeath senior and minor football and hurling teams since 2014, and together with Joe Mallon Motor Group, the brand recently announced its sponsorship of the Wicklow county senior football team for the next three years.
Patrick Magee, country operations director of Renault Group Ireland, says the GAA is an important part of its business.
“We are delighted to be the title sponsor of the 2019 GAA World Games and look forward to working with the association and the players as official car partner of the GAA/GPA over the next three years.
“The GAA is such an integral part of communities across Ireland and around the world, as demonstrated by the success of the GAA World Games, and we look forward to a successful games in Waterford in late July," he says.
"GAA already plays a key role in our business model, as well as within our 26 dealerships, and we are excited about this partnership and getting on the road in 2019 and beyond.”
