Munster Rugby sponsor Pinergy has re-branded to strengthen its core offering as an energy with insight supplier.
To celebrate this and the return of competitive Irish rugby, Munster fans across Ireland can enter a competition for the chance to “fanergise” the Munster Rugby team by giving them a virtual team talk, ahead of their first game back against Leinster in the Guinness Pro14.
That’s the kind of opportunity that does not come up on a regular basis and is bound to prove popular among underage coaches who have always been waiting for that ‘breakthrough moment’ and others who have a deep connection as supporters of the team.
Munster will be one of the first teams in Ireland returning to competitive action on August 22nd, however, with the game being played behind closed doors, the experience will be different for fans and players alike.
Through its #WeAre16 platform as the team’s official energy partner, Pinergy has been across the powerful role the fans play in driving the success of the team.
Now they have leveraged the insight of the fans’ need to feel close to the team, in the face of the challenge presented by empty stadia.
Pinergy has started to post across its social channels offering a chance to win this unique prize.
All fans need to do is reply with a comment, photo or video demonstrating why they should be Munster Rugby’s 16th man and give the team talk.
All entrants must tag @Pinergy and use #WeAre16. Four entries will be shortlisted and required to submit a 15-second video or audio clip to give a taste of their team talk so that Pinergy along with Munster Rugby’s Andrew Conway can select a worthy winner.
We will be chatting to Pinergy’s David Slattery next week to see how the entries have been coming along.
“The support of the Munster fans on game day, and throughout the season, pushes the team to go that extra mile,” said brand ambassador Andrew Conway.
“It’s been a long wait to get back to competitive rugby and we can’t wait to get back out there, but it will be strange playing in an empty stadium.”
“To get that extra burst of encouragement from the winner’s team talk, will really spur us on ahead of kick-off.”
“Our strong partnership with Munster Rugby, coupled with our insight around fans’ needs, has resulted in this fantastic opportunity for someone to have the chance to show the team the energy behind them ahead of the Interpro,” added Enda Gunnell, Pinergy CEO.
“We’re looking forward to seeing Andrew and the team back in action, and of course, to hearing from fans who want to enter.”
