Vauxhall is maintaining its position as lead partner to the Northern Ireland national teams by agreeing a four-year sponsorship extension with the Irish Football Association.


The sponsorship began in January 2011 and will now run until July 2018. Vauxhall will support the team in their UEFA European Championships 2016 qualification campaign, and the Northern Ireland women’s and youth teams as they compete in tournaments and matches throughout the world.


Vauxhall Chairman and Managing Director, Duncan Aldred, said: “To have pledged our support to the Northern Ireland teams for a further five years demonstrates our commitment to helping the Irish FA to develop football in this country. This partnership will provide support from grassroots up to the elite level.”


Irish FA Chief Executive, Patrick Nelson added: “The support that we have received from Vauxhall has been phenomenal and has installed a confidence and belief in the national team. I look forward to sustaining a prosperous partnership that will inspire Michael O’Neill’s side for the rest of the FIFA World Cup 2014 qualification period and into the UEFA Euro 2016 campaign.”
