Chill Insurance, the fastest growing independent Irish insurance company, proudly announced today the signing of a three year sponsorship deal for all Cork inter-county teams from Minor to Senior.
The announcement was made this morning (Tuesday 5th March 2013) in Cork by Bob Ryan, Cork County Board Chairman, and Fergal Lynch, Head of Marketing and Retail for Chill Insurance.
The Irish insurance broker has trebled in size over the past two years, and employs over 150 people, with plans to create a significant number of additional jobs in the coming year.
"We are delighted to have forged this agreement to sponsor Cork's football and hurling greats. As a growing Irish company, we look for family and community sponsorships to link with our customers and build our brand. With legions of Cork GAA supporters and such high-performing teams, the Chill Insurance brand will be very much at home in the rebel county" Fergal Lynch said.
Cork's County Board had talks with a number of potential sponsors before agreeing the Chill Insurance deal, the County Chairman said.
"The association with Cork GAA is a high profile sporting opportunity, and we have an obligation to find partners that share our ethos and are committed to our teams, clubs and supporters. Chill Insurance is a strong Irish business, with the same determination to succeed as our players, so it is a good day for Cork GAA all round" Bob Ryan said.
Chill Insurance, founded in 2007, offers an unrivalled service in providing best value and choice for motor, home, life cover, and health insurance, as well as commercial cover for business. The independent company deals with all of the major insurers, and allows customers to contact them in a way or at a time that suits; via the website www.chill.ie, on the phone at 1890 30 20 20 or in person. Each medium still gives customers access to 14 different insurers in minutes to get the right policy at an affordable price.
The Cork GAA deal is the company's first major foray into sporting sponsorship at this level, although the brand has a number of media links including TV3's weather sponsorship, and the recent sponsorship of RTÉ's Christmas movie schedule, as well as local community sponsorships.
The new relationship between Chill Insurance and the Cork County Board, will see the county's senior football and hurling teams take to the field this weekend bearing the new Chill Insurance logo.
