Grant Thornton have extended their partnership with Connacht Rugby for a further three seasons up to 2022.

The partnership includes continued naming rights of the Grant Thornton Seated Stand in the Sportsground.

The stand provides a premium seated option for supporters and is always in high demand for Connacht’s home games in the Pro14 and European Champions Cup competitions.

“Connacht Rugby and Grant Thornton have established a strong partnership over the past number of seasons, and we are delighted to be strengthening our association out to 2022,” said Connacht Head of Commercial and Marketing, Brian Mahony.

“Grant Thornton are Ireland’s fastest-growing professional services firm and they have developed strong roots in the province. We look forward to our continued partnership as we target ambitious plans both on and off the field in the years ahead.”

“We are delighted to extend our partnership with Connacht Rugby,” added Aengus Burns, Partner at Grant Thornton Ireland.

“We value our collaboration to date and the future brings great excitement.”

Connacht Rugby is also backed by Sport for Business members Bank of Ireland, Top Oil and Elverys Intersport.

The province will be one of the major sporting bodies waiting anxiously on news about the destination of funding from the Large Scale Infrastructure Fund. That is expected in the coming weeks with a redevelopment of the Sportsground one of a number of individual Rugby projects looking to get funding.

Grant Thornton is the auditor of the Irish Rugby Football Union.
