AIG has signed a new 5-year partnership extension as official insurance partner to the LGFA and its members.
The brand has been one of Ireland’s most active sporting sponsors across Gaelic Games and a range of other sports from golf and badminton to tennis and more.
Earlier this year it was announced that would be stepping away from the award-winning partnership with Dublin GAA after ten years on the shirt and in the middle of Gaelic games and this extension is a welcome confirmation of its commitment remaining strong within the Irish market.
AIG is also the proud sponsor of the Sport for Business 50 Women of Influence in Irish Sport which will publish once again this autumn.
The company announced in May 2019 that it was to become the Official Insurance Partner of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association. The addition of the LGFA to AIG’s sponsorship portfolio further strengthened the insurer’s backing of female sport in Ireland and AIG’s ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion and supporting women in sport.
To help show support to the LGFA both on and off the field, AIG has put together a range of insurance offers and discounts for members and players.
All LGFA members and their families will get 15% off car and home insurance, while all LGFA players will get 25% off their car insurance.
Attending the launch today were players representing each province of Ireland, along with a representative from Dublin GAA, of whom AIG are the long term main sponsor.
Those attending included Lauren McGregor of Waterford who features in the new Series of One Tribe, Jodi McQuillan of Monaghan, Monica McGuirk of Meath, Lynsey Noone of Galway and Dublin’s Hannah Tyrrell.
“We are both proud and delighted to reveal details of the new LGFA partnership today,” said AIG general manager for Ireland Aidan Connaughton.
“Given our heritage in supporting both male and female sports, communities and sport at grassroots level around the country, we feel this is a natural progression for us from a business perspective and I think the representation we have here today is a strong reflection of that commitment.”
“Thanks to the team at the LGFA, led by President Mícheál Naughton and CEO Helen O’Rourke, for their support and hard work in making this happen.”
“We appreciate that the players across all sports put a huge amount of effort into their chosen sport to ensure they perform to the best of their abilities. We hope AIG can support them both on the field and for their insurance needs.”
“We are thrilled that AIG have shown such faith in Ladies Gaelic Football, and agreed to a long-term extension to remain on board as Official Insurance Partner,” added LGFA President Micheál Naughton.
“We have worked closely alongside AIG since 2019 and many of our members and players have benefited from AIG’s offerings. In recent years, we have also been treated to some wonderful video content as AIG have revealed the stories behind some of our top players.”
“We look forward to the next series of videos, featuring the 2023 AIG ambassadors, with a real sense of anticipation.”
