With the Rugby World Cup 2015 now a distant memory, the countdown to both the Olympics in Rio and the Euro 2016 in France has begun.
With a firm eye on Rio, Hockey Ireland, the representative association of Irish hockey is looking to appoint a communications/sponsorship agency partner to create and implement strategic sponsorship and communication plans.
Hockey Ireland has enjoyed a record breaking year with the senior men’s squad qualifying for the Olympic Games for the first time in 108 years. The so-called “green machine” also won a European Championship bronze medal for the first time in history. “This is an exciting time for hockey in Ireland and Hockey Ireland is looking for an agency partner to assist in tapping into the sponsorship potential the senior men’s team hold, and further increase its communication reach,” according to a spokesperson.
The team will be the first Irish hockey team to compete at an Olympics since 1908 and the first team of any sport to represent Ireland at an Olympic Games since 1948.
Ireland will join teams from Brazil, India, Germany, Canada, Spain, Belgium, Great Britain, Argentina, Netherlands and Australia in the Olympics, which start on August 5th 2016.
