SuperValu has extended its partnership with Cork Ladies Footballers and will be on the shirt this weekend for the historic first game to be played by the multiple All Ireland winners at Pairc Uí Chaoimh.
2020 will be the seventh year of the partnership.
“They are a fantastic team and have been monumental in the development of ladies Gaelic football over the last two decades,” said Supervalu Managing Director Martin Kelleher.
“They are a credit to themselves and their county. We are very proud to have been part of their journey for the past six years and we look forward to continuing our support.”
As part of the partnership, SuperValu will also continue to sponsor the Cork Ladies Development Summer Camps that take place every year. Coached by members of the Cork ladies team, the camps promote the development of Ladies Gaelic Football all over county Cork and encourage girls between the Under 8 and Under 16 age groups to be active and continue with their involvement in sport.
It has to be hoped now that the support will extend to heavyweight promotion in stores across the county encouraging families and sports fans to get behind the team and boost attendance at the fixtures that will take place over the coming months in the Lidl National League, even if that means mentioning rivals, and on into the summer months and a run in the TG4 All Ireland Championship.
