The Camogie Association has announced that Tesco Ireland has signed a two-year deal to become its Youth Development sponsor until the culmination of the 2021 season.
The sponsorship will see Tesco support the All-Ireland Post-Primary Camogie Schools Championships as well as the All-Ireland Minor Camogie Championships.
Additionally, the sponsorship will see Tesco support the Association’s Camán to Croker and Hurl With Me development initiatives.
“Youth Development is a cornerstone of our sport as we continuously look to bring through future generations of players. We strive to create an environment which is fun and inclusive and allows all players to develop to their full potential and most importantly to enjoy playing Camogie," said Kathleen Woods, President of the Camogie Association.
Under the partnership, Tesco aims to engage with its network of stores in the communities that it serves and partnering with local Camogie Clubs to activate their initiatives over the lifetime of the agreement, the group said.
Woods added: “This sponsorship will enhance the work already being done in this area and we look forward to working with Tesco Ireland to find new and innovative ways to ensure an enjoyable experience for all young players within the sport.”
