Danske Bank and the NIFL have extended their partnership, which includes title sponsorship of the Women’s Premiership for another three years.
The deal again covers the men’s and women’s competitions and Managing Director of the NIFL, Andrew Johnston, says: “The renewal of the Danske Bank Premiership sponsorship is fantastic news for the NI Football League, our clubs, our players and our loyal supporters.
“We have worked in partnership with Danske Bank since the inception of the NI Football League, and over that time we have built and developed a fantastic relationship which has not only brought more attention to the local game, but has seen attendance figures increase year on year, has bought more prominence to our top women’s league and provided support to our clubs off the pitch as well as on.”
Danske Bank Head of Marketing, Kevin Heavern, added: “The Danske Bank Premiership and Women’s Premiership are some of the greatest showcases for local sporting talent in the country. They have such a huge following both here and abroad, making the Premiership one of the top sponsorship opportunities in Northern Ireland.
“At Danske Bank, supporting local sport is one of our absolute passions – from the grassroots and youth team levels right to the highest league of the Premiership. Over the last number of years, we’ve seen …. huge growth in the ladies’ game, that meant extending our partnership for another three years was an easy decision for us.”
