Electricity and gas supplier Go Power has renewed its commitment to Ulster Rugby by signing a new two-year sponsorship contract.
The agreement will see Go Power continue as a jersey sponsor with the company logo featured prominently on the back of the Ulster shirt. Branding will be visible around Kingspan Stadium and rugby fans will benefit from a series of competitions organised by Go Power throughout the season.
Go Power, which is part of the LCC Group, has experienced rapid growth since launching into the Northern Ireland commercial market in April 2012. The company holds a 35 per cent share of the overall Industrial and Commercial market in Northern Ireland and works with several key clients including NI Water, NI Local Government and Councils and other key Ulster Rugby Sponsors that include BT, Danske Bank, Moy Park and Dale Farm.
Go Power also exclusively supplies Ulster Rugby’s Kingspan Stadium with both electricity and natural gas.
The LCC Group is an independent family owned company, established in 1980 which provides a range of services spanning various energy sectors. Initially set up to provide domestic coal and oil to homes in Northern Ireland, the Group now supplies coal, oil, electricity, gas and logistic services across all key sectors of the Energy Industry, locally and worldwide.
Laura Loughran, Go Power, said: “Our relationship with Ulster Rugby has been fantastic over the last two years and we are looking forward to continuing to support the team with our new sponsorship agreement. As a local company, we want to get behind the team as they aim for success in the Guinness PRO14 and European Champions Cup this year.
“Through our ongoing sponsorship and commitment to the team, we have experienced a noticeable increase in the brand awareness of Go Power and this has helped to spur on our fast growth in the marketplace. We are now working with 15,000 businesses in Northern Ireland, supplying electricity and natural gas.”
Fiona Hampton, Head of Sales & Marketing at Ulster Rugby, added: “We are delighted to extend our relationship with Go Power for the next two years. Like ourselves, Go Power are committed to driving world class standards while maintaining strong roots within our local community. As a valued sponsor of Ulster Rugby, we are pleased that the association with the club has enhanced the company’s profile within their industry, and we look forward to continuing a fruitful working relationship over the next couple of years.”
