Cork ready for the big Chill

The Cork County Board executive last night met to ratify the footballers and hurlers’ new three-year sponsorship deal.

An announcement has been scheduled for 11.30am today at Páirc Uí Chaoimh’s executive room with online insurance company Chill.ie expected to be confirmed as the successors to O2.

Cork county chairman Bob Ryan and a number of players will be in attendance for the launch.

Tomorrow marks 126 days since the Cork County Board revealed their 15-year association with O2 (previously Esat Digifone) was to end. It’s possible the new jersey will be unveiled in time for the U21 footballers’ Munster FC opener against Kerry tomorrow week

However, it is all but certain the new jersey will be worn by both footballers and hurlers for the double-header against Donegal and Clare in Páirc Uí Rinn on Saturday week.

It is expected both teams will again support the Mercy Foundation charity on their jerseys as they travel to Tyrone and Waterford for league encounters this weekend.
