As Ireland’s Men’s Sevens team is granted core team status, Martello is proud to continue its sponsorship deal with the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) this season . . .

Blackrock Expert Services Group’s proud sponsorship deal with the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) continues this season with support for the Ireland Men’s Sevens team.

Ireland was granted core team status for the first time in the nation’s history after they defeated Hong Kong 28-7 in the final of the 2019 Hong Kong Sevens Qualifier tournament held in Hong Kong from 5-7 April 2019. Ireland’s victory means they are now able to compete in all events as a core nation for the 2019-20 season.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Blackrock Expert Services Group’s Chairman, David Barry, said: “We are delighted to be Official Sponsors of the Ireland team in what we consider to be one of the world’s most exciting and entertaining sports. As a global company with strong Irish roots, we look forward to supporting the Men’s Sevens competing in the forthcoming HSBC 2019-20 World Rugby Sevens Series following their recent achievements in Hong Kong.”

The Blackrock Expert Services Group logo features on the Ireland Men’s Sevens kit. Details of the 2019-20 schedule and dates will be confirmed later this year.
