Milebush Park, headquarters of the Mayo Football League, will soon be known as Umbro Park Milebush, thanks to a sponsorship agreement between the two organisations.

From 1924 to the present day, Umbro has been a household name with sporting heroes throughout the world including the Ireland National Football Teams on many historic days.

A statement from Umbro reads,

"our agreement with the Mayo Football League for the naming rights to Milebush Park will run for an initial three years. We are delighted with this partnership and look forward to collaborating with all involved to support grassroots football initiatives.”

Seamus Hughes, Chairperson of the Mayo Football League said

"The Mayo Football League is delighted to announce our partnership with Umbro Ireland. In Umbro we have a partner with a strong brand that is at the leading edge in sportswear in the country.

On behalf of Mayo Football League I would like to welcome our new partners who have deep roots in the community and in soccer.

Umbro is a well-known and reputable company and we look forward to working with them for many years to come I would also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Solar 21 for their unwavering and continued support over many years that has led to some large development at the home of Mayo soccer.

Umbro’s investment will allow us to continue on our journey of constantly improving our facilities at the League Headquarters and thereby benefiting the boys and girls, men and women of Mayo, both young and old, for generations to come.”

Mr Hughes went on to thank Donal Benson and Tom McDaniel from the League for their invaluable contribution in securing the new deal.

The Sponsorship arrangement will be officially launched on Monday night next the 5th of February in the TF Royal Hotel & Theatre, Castlebar along with the launch of the CastleCourt Hotel Premier Division and the Killeen Sports Ground League One ahead of the new season which commences on the 25th February.
