Tetrarch's sponsorship over the next two-and-a-half years will assist the growth of the Football For All programme and facilitate greater accessibility for aspiring players. With over 3,500 players participating in the programme, and significant plans for expansion, Football For All caters for players of varying disabilities, such as blind, deaf, powerchair and amputee players.
FAI CEO John Delaney welcomed the deal: "The FAI are delighted to work with Tetrarch for the next two and a half years. The FAI works incredibly hard to cater for as many people as possible who want to play football, so our Football For All programme is an initiative that we treasure greatly. To have a company of Tetrarch's esteem come onboard as title sponsor for that programme will prove invaluable."
Damien Gaffney, Managing Director of Tetrarch Hospitality, remarked: "With EURO 2016 kicking off this week it is important we don't forget that football is a game that can be played and enjoyed by everyone. As an Irish-owned company we are extremely proud of our sponsorship of the FAI's Football For All programme and we look forward to helping John Delaney, Oisin Jordan and their FAI colleagues to expand the programme's reach and number of events. This is a particularly important initiative for all of us in Tetrarch and we will be actively involved in the promotion of the programme throughout our period of sponsorship."
Oisin Jordan, National Coordinator for Football For All, said: "This new sponsorship deal with Tetrarch Hospitality is a fantastic opportunity to increase the FAI's investment in creating an environment of inclusivity in its sport in Ireland and will continue to ensure opportunities for players with disabilities to access the sport they love at a level that suits them."
