Sligo Rovers are delighted to announce a new front of shirt sponsor for our Ladies Under 19 team in our first season competing in the Women’s National League.
Overstock Ireland is based in Sligo and is the European Technology Headquarters for Overstock.com, a technology driven online retailer. The company is based in a state of the art campus at Finisklin Business Park, where they recently invested €1 million in a move there.
‘’At Overstock Ireland we are always looking for ways to advocate for our local community of Sligo, and get ahead of the ball to support efforts promoting women in underrepresented sectors. We are delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Sligo Rovers Ladies Under 19 team.
As part of Sligo Rovers’ long term plan for the women’s game they have expanded their academy for The 2021 season by adding an Under 19 team alongside their Under 17 team which will enter their fourth season in the Women’s National League. The team is made up of players from all over the North West region and we are patiently waiting as restrictions ease to get out and support the ladies on their campaign this year, and really look forward to seeing our logo on the Bit O’ Red shirt’’.
Sligo Rovers Ladies Under 19 manager Darragh Healy expressed his thanks to Overstock.
‘Overstock have been great supporters of the club in recent years with various sponsorships including match sponsorships and a pitch-side sign. They create jobs for the North West region and with our academy providing a pathway for boys and girls from The North West Region, it’s a nice match. We are very grateful to Overstock and look forward to working with them in the coming months’’.
The Under 19 ladies team are currently preparing for our inaugural season in the Women’s National League alongside our Under 17’s under the guidance of Darragh Healy and Aaron O’ Connor.
Irish International player Emma Hansberry has been added to the coaching staff for the season ahead, who’s experience at the top level of the women’s game will no doubt help guide the players through their time at the club.
Pre-Season friendlies can begin in June with the season expected to begin a few weeks later.
