Zurich Insurance in Ireland has been announced today as the new main sponsor for Wexford GAA. Anthony Brennan, CEO of Zurich Ireland, said: “We are incredibly proud to sign as headline sponsor of Wexford GAA. The sponsorship is a true reflection of our values as a long-standing proud member of the Wexford business community and is consistent with Zurich’s long-term association with grassroots sport in Ireland.”
This partnership has come about after extensive discussions with Wexford GAA’s commercial steering group and will underpin the further development of the games at underage and adult intercounty level.
GAA is at the heart of local communities across Wexford. Zurich has grown its presence in Wexford since 2008 and it now employs over 230 people in the county and has demonstrated a strong commitment to the local community. Zurich employees at all levels of the business have a strong engagement in grassroots GAA and this new partnership will further strengthen Zurich’s involvement in the GAA across the county.
Derek Kent, Wexford County Chairman, commented: “We are delighted to be announcing this sponsorship agreement between Wexford GAA and Zurich. We have a bright future across both codes with Paul Galvin and Davy Fitzgerald at the helm and with excellent work being done at underage in our schools and clubs. We are excited to have Zurich, who have become embedded in the Wexford community, alongside us on the next phase of our journey as we aim for continued success at all levels of Wexford GAA”.
