Final Line Up for The Sporting Year Ahead

We are pleased this morning to reveal that the opening discussion at next week’s Sport for Business Sporting Year Ahead event at the Aviva Stadium will focus on the Aer Lingus College Football Classic at the Aviva Stadium on the Saturday evening of the All Ireland Football Final Weekend.

Over 30,000 tourists will arrive to follow the opening game of the season between Notre Dame and Navy with ESPN broadcasting coast to coast in the USA.  We will talk about the impact of this and the four annual games that will follow with promoter Padraic O’Kane and media partner Ger Gilroy of Off The Ball.

GAA President John Horan is to be the keynote interview later in the morning, talking all things GAA from games and fixtures to its place at the heart of Irish society.

Two of the key sponsors behind Team Ireland’s bid for Olympic and Paralympic Glory in Tokyo with Aidan McLaughlin of Indeed and Sinéad Moriarty of Circle K have also been added to join the CEO’s of the Olympic Federation of Ireland and Paralympics Ireland to set the scene for the Summer.

We will be deep-diving into sponsorship figures from last year and trends of the year ahead with Joanne O’Sullivan and Rob Pearson of Teneo.

Our four knowledge bursts will highlight one World Championship and two European Championships coming to Ireland this year and one special anniversary of a major sponsorship.in Lacrosse coming to the University of Limerick in July.

The FAI Suite at the Aviva Stadium will be the venue for the Sport for Business Sporting Year Ahead Breakfast event in partnership with Teneo.

We hope you will join us for an event that is always popular among the Sport for Business membership and which has sold out quickly in each of the last four years.

There are only a handful of tickets available with over 80 confirmed already to attend so far from across the Sport for Business community

What better way could there be to set yourself fair for the inside track on Irish sport over the next twelve months.
