The energy company Pinergy is to continue its sponsorship of Munster Rugby for the sixth year in a row. As the official energy partner of Munster Rugby, the company announced the extension of its sponsorship deal earlier in the week.
A number of new initiatives to enhance the fan experience will be unveiled this season as part of its activation, including the roll out of unique #WeAre16 heated zones in Thomond Park as well as electric vehicle charging points.
In addition, the company will be activating the new ‘Family of Fans’ competition on Facebook which will see a Munster family will win four match day tickets, free electricity for a year and other prizes for key matches during the season. The company is also a supporter of the Munster Rugby Supporters Club Choir, the first provincial rugby choir of its kind.
As part of the partnership, Munster Rugby will be accessing Pinergy’s Smart Business platform to better manage, monitor and reduce its energy consumption through energy data insights. Pinergy will continue to supply both Thomond Park and Irish Independent Park with 100% renewable energy for the duration of this agreement.
According to Enda Gunnell, CEO of Pinergy: “PINERGY has been a proud partner of Munster Rugby since 2014. Today we’re delighted to announce a two-year extension to our partnership. In addition to providing Thomond Park and Irish Independent Park with 100% green energy, we’re going to help Munster Rugby better manage, monitor and reduce their energy consumption through our Smart Business platform. We’re also introducing new initiatives for fans including the #WeAre16 Zones to keep the Munster faithful warm & energised throughout the season, and charge points for electric vehicles at Thomond Park to emphasise the Stadium’s green credentials.”
