The new adidas UCD Rugby training kit will be available to order online for thegaastore.com.
To celebrate our sixth season as official club sponsor Crowe also commissioned a new video, which features interviews with Naoise Cosgrove, managing partner of Crowe and JP Donnelly from UCD RFC who outlines how the sponsorship has supported the development of the club talent. Watch video.
Commenting on the ongoing sponsorship support, JP Donnelly outlines, “Support from sponsors like Crowe has also enabled the club to focus on what it does best – developing players to reach their full potential, both personally and professionally. It has also enabled us to further develop our women’s rugby teams and establish what has become a hugely successful tag ruby programme.”
Committing on the sponsorship Naoise Cosgrove said: “Crowe recognises the of importance of obtaining top talent and providing the training and development to ensure people achieve their full potential. Just as UCD Rugby is known for cultivating talent so too is Crowe which prides itself on supporting the development of the best talent across our practice, whether it be at graduate level or among our more experienced staff.”
The sponsorship deal is part of Crowe’s ongoing commitment to harness the best young talent in the country both on and off the field through their graduate and sponsorship initiatives.
