PRO12 CHAMPIONS CONNACHT have today announced that Elverys Intersport will be their new sponsor on a three-year-deal.

Lifestyle Sports have been the western province’s title sponsor since 2014, but will slip off the front of the jersey again as Pat Lam’s side defend their title and head back into the Champions Cup.

The deal will also see Elverys become the official retail partner with the province, reinstating a relationship they had originally formed in 2005.

“Down through the years we have been involved with Connacht Rugby at all levels of the game throughout the province,” says marketing director of Elverys Intersport Loman Caulfield, “having previously sponsored the professional team, the Connacht Schools Cup, the Connacht junior team, as well as a number of All Ireland League clubs. Our heart is in Connacht and this is well reflected in our backing of Connacht Rugby.”

Connacht’s new kit for the season ahead, complete with new sponsor, will be released later this month.
