Combilift, a leading global player in the field of materials handling, is also now getting involved on the sports field at a more local level. The company has committed to a new 3-year sponsorship deal with the Monaghan Ladies Gaelic football team as well as sponsoring the Monaghan senior club championship. The Combilift logo will now be prominent on both home and away jerseys, as well as all items of the team’s training gear. Combilift will support the Monaghan LGFA (Ladies Gaelic Football Association) teams both on and off the field, and at all levels from juveniles through to seniors.
The GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) is Ireland’s largest sporting organisation and is at the heart of Irish culture. It is focused on promoting indigenous Gaelic sports such as hurling, camogie and Gaelic football. Combilift’s sponsorship intends to help promote ladies Gaelic games locally by increasing media coverage, participation, and match attendance.
Fixtures are due to kick-off on 23rd May following the lifting of some restrictions – when Monaghan host Cavan in the first round of the Lidl National League. Monaghan senior manager Ciaran Murphy said: “We are delighted that Combilift has agreed to be our new sponsor. It is great to see such a prominent local company investing in the Monaghan Ladies team and we hope to do them proud on the pitch”.
Combilift CEO Martin McVicar said: “Although Combilift operates as a business on worldwide scale, we are firmly and proudly rooted in Monaghan and are committed to our local community and its activities. We are extremely proud to support the Monaghan Ladies team at all levels as they strive for continued success. We wish them all the best for the coming season and we’re looking forward to seeing them lifting some silverware!”
