Unique Sporting Partnership

The only sponsorship in Ireland between a multinational pharmaceutical company and a ladies or men’s inter-county Gaelic football team.

AbbVie’s Unique Sporting Partnership

Sligo Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) and AbbVie recently announced a three-year sponsorship at the company’s Manorhamilton Road facility in Sligo.

The arrangement will see the AbbVie logo appear on the senior ladies’ football team jerseys until the end of the 2022. AbbVie also sponsors of the Sligo men’s county GAA Senior, U-21 and Junior football team jerseys.

Many of the company’s 400-plus Sligo employees are currently involved in GAA and the LGFA or have previously played the sport at various levels. 

This new sporting partnership further underscores the company’s support of local communities and sports organisations, whilst demonstrating a firm commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) practices, both inside and outside of the organisation.

AbbVie’s new partnership with the Sligo LGFA also means that it is now the only multinational pharmaceutical company in Ireland to support an inter-county team, regardless of gender.
