Connacht Rugby are delighted to announce that Tribe Hospitality Group will become an Official Kit Partner for the next three seasons.

Beginning with the 2020/21 season, the partnership will see Tribe Hospitality appear on the lower back of all Senior Men’s home, away, European and training shirts and Women’s Home shirt. The new sponsorship follows the previous announcement of Tribe Hospitality becoming Official Catering Partner of Connacht Rugby.

The catering partnership involves providing meals to both senior and academy players 3 times a week as well as all pre and post-match hospitality in the Sportsground.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Brian Mahony Head of Commercial & Marketing at Connacht Rugby said:

“We are thrilled to announce this new partnership with Tribe Hospitality Group. We have had a brilliant response from the players since the catering partnership began earlier this summer, and we look forward to working with Tribe in the years ahead to build on our existing relationship. We were also particularly pleased to see such a great reaction to the new jerseys which feature the Tribe Hospitality Group logo.”

Speaking of the partnership, Tribe Hospitality owner Kevin Nugent stated:

“We were delighted to announce our catering partnership with Connacht Rugby this July. The response was incredible. We are thrilled to have our logo on the back of their jerseys. Connacht Rugby are one of the most recognisable organisations in the West of Ireland with a huge fanbase so to be affiliated with them and be on their jerseys is amazing. It is exciting to become kit sponsors with the Women’s Rugby team. The success of the Women’s team over the last number of years has been brilliant for Connacht Rugby and we can’t wait to support both teams in the Sportsground over the next 3 years!’
