Cork City Football Club and Cork Airport are delighted to confirm details of their new, enhanced partnership which began back in 2012 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
A new three- year partnership was recently agreed and will cover 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons and will see further additions to the existing partnership such as Cork Airports title branding of our friendly fixtures, including the forthcoming game against Preston North End. Cork Airport branding can now also be seen across the top of the Joe Delaney Stand at Turner’s Cross. In addition, Cork Airport will continue to provide operational and logistical support to the club around our forthcoming Europa League fixtures in July.
Commenting on the news, Head of Communications at Cork Airport, Kevin Cullinane said:
‘’We are absolutely delighted to partner and further expand our great relationship with Cork City FC. They are an integral part of the fabric of Cork life and give so many locals, you and old and outlet of excitement and opportunity. We wish them continued success for the years ahead’’, he added.
Paul Deasy, Commercial & Marketing Manager at Cork City FC, welcomed confirmation of the agreement, saying: “As a club, we are very proud to represent our city and county around Ireland and abroad. We are delighted to work with many prestigious Cork institutions, and our partnership with our friends at Cork Airport is a perfect example of two Cork organisations working together.”
“While there has been a great relationship between the club and Cork Airport for a number of years now, I am very pleased that we have been able to agree an enhanced, long-term partnership for the next three years. The Airport has always been very good to the club and a pleasure for us to partner with and we hope to continue building that relationship even further over the next three years and, hopefully, beyond.”
