Galway’s Gaelic football and hurling teams will have the same jersey, crest, and sponsor for the first time.
Supermacs, which was confirmed as the new backers last night, has had a connection with the hurlers for two decades, during which time Tommy Varden, Aer Arann, and Cancer Care West were involved with the footballers.
Former TD and current Galway GAA County Board chairman, Noel Treacy, is looking forward to Sunday’s Allianz NFL Division 2 clash with Derry as it will be a “historic” day for the Tribesmen.
“It will be a historic day because, for the very first time, both of our county teams will wear the same new standard maroon jersey with one county crest thereon and both teams will proudly carry the name of a single sponsor, Supermacs, for the very first time also.
“This will bring a unity of purpose and a new passion and vigour to all of our teams.
“It will also bring clarity and a new sense of pride to and for all of our many loyal supporters.
“This new inter-county sponsorship gives us certainty that for the next few years all of our inter-county teams can be well resourced and supported in modern amateur games.”
Supermacs managing director Pat McDonagh is delighted to extend his involvement with Galway GAA.
He said: “We view this sponsorship as an opportunity to give back to the communities that have supported us over the years.”
