Creators of the original Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Brancott Estate, are delighted to continue as the ‘Official Wine Sponsor’ of Connacht Rugby for the third year running. The 2014/15 sponsorship will be supported with pitch side advertising, online presence on, match programme advertising as well as promotional support in trade outlets in the surrounding areas.

Niall Beatty, Indirect Channel Manager of Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard said:

 “For the third year in a row, Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard are delighted to be involved with Connacht Rugby, continuing our long association with the club, with Brancott Estate as the official wine sponsor of Connacht Rugby.

“Ours is a partnership that benefits both parties mutually and our strong bond, developed over the past few years, is very much in line with the strong partnerships akin to rugby football.

“Connacht are making great strides under Pat Lam over the past number of seasons and the great work done by Eric Elwood and Nigel Carolan over previous years is now beginning to bear fruit.

“I would like to wish Willie Ruane every success in his new role as CEO and continued success to all involved in Connacht Rugby”
