Update: Primary sponsor VW Connolly’s

Sligo Rovers can confirm that our eight-year primary sponsorship relationship with Volkswagen Connolly’s will conclude at the end of the season.

The sponsorship agreement with VW Connolly’s has been recognised as one of the most successful and mutually beneficial sponsorships in the league in recent times.

Sligo Rovers chairman Martin Heraghty said: “Our relationship with VW Connolly’s began in 2012, a year that will be fondly remembered by us all.

“Since that season Connolly’s have made a large contribution to the progression of the club.  They were with us on our great days and loyal in more challenging times.

“Their legacy at the club also includes the redeveloped Railway End stand that the Volkswagen group made an investment towards during that building project. We saw last Sunday just how valuable that has been to us all.

“We are also proud of our role as Connolly’s continued to expand over this period and that the brand of Sligo Rovers was so beneficial to them. The number of fans who became customers of Connolly’s also showed how respected the partnership has been.

“We want to thank Neil Connolly, Kevin Connolly, Graham Lee and all the team at Connolly’s for their wonderful support. We know they will be fans of the club for life.”

The club is now open to hearing from interested parties who would like to avail of the opportunity to become the primary sponsor for next season and beyond as we aim to build on a very promising year at The Showgrounds.
