Corporate Opportunities

We are looking for sponsorship of our curling teams. Sponsors who would be prepared to support us in our efforts, either financially or by providing goods or equipment.

The Irish Curling Association is recognised by the Olympic Council of Ireland and the World Curling Federation (WCF). This enables us to compete as a country at international level in European, World and Olympic events. We are also moving forward in setting the groundwork to re-establish curling in Ireland and develop the sport.

Sponsors would get exposure through our various international endeavours, including WCF competitions (some of which are televised), web site, social media and advertising.

If you are interested in helping our competitive and development aspirations, please get in touch. Contact details are on the “Contact Us” web page.
