Kingspan has agreed a new four-year deal to remain as principal sponsor of Ulster Rugby until 2023, extending a partnership that stretches back to 1999.
 
The agreement will see Kingspan, a leading global supplier of sustainable building products, continue as main jersey sponsor of the senior team.
 
In 2014, Kingspan also agreed a 10-year stadium naming rights deal with Ulster Rugby, further highlighting the strong, long-term relationship between the two organisations.
 
Kingspan has over 13,000 employees across 70+ countries, with its headquarters based in Kingscourt, County Cavan. It also has 4  further Ulster-based offices in Casteblayney, Newry, Ballyclare and Portadown.
 
Commenting on the new agreement, Ulster Rugby’s Head of Sales & Marketing, Fiona Hampton, said:
We’re delighted to be continuing our association with Kingspan.  It is a long term partnership that sees international brands brought together, and is founded on shared values and aspirations. Professional rugby is an increasingly competitive environment and the support that we receive, not only from our loyal fan base, but also from sponsors such as Kingspan, is absolutely vital.
 
This sponsorship not only helps us to retain and recruit talent for the senior team, it also allows us to invest in all levels of rugby in Ulster, ensuring long-term sustainability. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the Kingspan team in the coming years as we strive for future success together.
 
Pat Freeman, Managing Director of Kingspan Water & Energy said:
We are very pleased to be extending our sponsorship of Ulster Rugby for another four years. Ulster is where Kingspan was founded, and the base from which we have grown into a global business in over 70 countries.
 
We share the players’ commitment to team work, and the pride they take in competing at the highest level. We hope our support will help Ulster Rugby inspire a new generation of players and fans to enjoy the game.
