Cricket Ireland has signed a new partnership deal which will see O’Neills continue as the official team kit supplier for the next three years.
The leading Irish sportswear manufacturer will be the official kit supplier to Cricket Ireland, and Irish national teams, including the T20 World Cup squad competing in Australia later this year.
“There are exciting times ahead for Cricket Ireland and we are pleased to be renewing our long and distinguished partnership with Cricket Ireland as their official team kit and sportswear supplier,” said Kieran Kennedy, O’Neill’s Managing Director.
“Many of our staff have direct family links to the Irish cricketing fraternity and we are proud to offer our support for the next three years.”
“We are delighted that such a successful Irish sportswear manufacturer has agreed to continue our ongoing partnership in 2020-2022,” added Cricket Ireland Commercial Director Dennis Cousins.
“We look forward to showcasing their top-quality sports and leisurewear locally, nationally and internationally over the next three years.”
“While many would associate O’Neills strongly with the GAA, they are equally committed is their ongoing support for cricket in Ireland – at international through to grassroots levels.”
“Exemplifying this is their additional sponsorship of our Junior Membership programme, which has helped us increase membership participation over 100 per cent in the last three years.”
2020 will be one of Cricket Ireland’s busiest years, with men’s and women’s senior squads competing in world tournaments.
The Ireland Men’s team are currently in India preparing for a T20 International series against Afghanistan, after which they will head to Zimbabwe.
This summer the squad will host Bangladesh, New Zealand and Pakistan before travelling to England in September for a three-match one-day international series.
They will then head Down Under for the 2020 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup which will be held in Australia from October 18 – November 15.
The Ireland Women’s team will have a series of yet-to-be-announced fixtures before heading to Sri Lanka in July for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier tournament.
