Connacht Rugby extend Grant Thornton partnership
We are pleased to announce a new two-year extension with Grant Thornton, Ireland's fastest growing professional services firm, for naming rights of the seated stand at the Sportsground in Galway. The Grant Thornton Seated Stand is the premier vantage point in the Sportsground, is in place for all of our home games and offers a seated option for 290 supporters.

Commenting on the partnership extension, Brian Mahony, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Connacht Rugby, said: “We are delighted that Grant Thornton are extending their partnership with Connacht Rugby and laying down deeper roots with the province. Grant Thornton have been outstanding in their own sphere in recent years and we’re very confident that our partnership will ensure both parties continue to grow strongly in the years ahead.”

Commenting on the announcement, Aengus Burns, Partner in Grant Thornton’s Galway office, said: “The development of Connacht Rugby in recent years has been phenomenal and we are delighted to continue supporting them as they go from strength to strength.

"Grant Thornton as a firm are committed to supporting and enriching the communities in which our offices are based. We strive to achieve this on both a local and national level and with Connacht Rugby covering both provincial and grassroots teams we see this as an important partnership. We’re looking forward to many more great evenings in the Grant Thornton Seated Stand.”
