Onecom agrees to new partnership deal with Irish FA

Communications provider Onecom has signed a new partnership agreement with the Irish Football Association.

The two-year deal will see Onecom become the official naming rights partner of the Pat Jennings Lounge at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

The lounge will be known as the Onecom Pat Jennings Lounge. 

Onecom is the UK’s largest independent business telecoms and cloud communications provider, delivering fixed line, mobile, unified communications, connectivity and cloud solutions.

It has worked closely with the Irish Football Association for several years. 

Since 2017 Onecom has been involved in the delivery of key digital upgrades to the stadium and it was previously title sponsor of the Onecom Business League run by the association. And in 2019 it became the sponsor of the West Stand in the National Football Stadium. 

Paul Lawther, Head of Onecom NI, said: “The Irish FA has been a key partner and customer to Onecom since our launch into the region way back in 2017.

“As an Official Partner it has been a privilege to support the association and the stadium on their digital transformation journey to date.

“We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with the Irish FA and supporting them to bolster their digital capabilities and the fan experience across a broad range of areas over the next number of years. We believe there’s another exciting chapter ahead.”

Stephen Bogle, Head of Sales and Marketing for the Irish FA, said the association was proud to announce Onecom as the naming rights partner of the Pat Jennings Lounge. 

He pointed out: “On matchdays the lounge offers guests first class hospitality, legend appearances and unrivalled views of the game, but throughout the working week it also plays host to a wide range of business conferences and events. 

“We’ve recently completed a major refurbishment of our hospitality and events areas to enhance the customer experience and we look forward to working with Onecom and welcoming guests back to the stadium for games and events alike.”
