Commenting on the announcement, Connacht Rugby CEO Willie Ruane said: "We are delighted to welcome Grant Thornton on board for the season. To have secured a naming rights partner for the first time is fantastic and indicative of the growth we have shown commercially in the past few years.“

Like Connacht Rugby, Grant Thornton has enjoyed considerable success in Galway in recent years and we’re very confident that our partnership will ensure both parties continue to grow strongly in the years ahead.”
