Announcing the extension of the partnership with Ulster Rugby, Julie Gibbons, Managing Director of AbbeyAutoline, said: “We have established a strong relationship with Ulster Rugby and its loyal and passionate fanbase over the past three years and we’re delighted to extend this partnership until 2022/23 under our new name, AbbeyAutoline.
“As a local company, we are incredibly excited by what the future holds for Ulster Rugby and we look forward to continuing our long-term commitment to supporting the development and growth of the local game, both on and off the pitch.
“We also can’t wait to welcome back families and young people to the AbbeyAutoline Family Stand, when it’s safe to do so, to experience the excellent family-friendly atmosphere as supporters of all ages cheer on their rugby heroes.”
Jonny Petrie, Ulster Rugby CEO, said: “We are delighted that AbbeyAutoline has chosen to renew their partnership with us. As we look forward to a time when we can safely welcome back supporters to Kingspan Stadium, it’s exciting to be collaborating on plans for our fans who are eagerly anticipating a return to their usual spot in what will be a newly branded AbbeyAutoline Family Stand.
“There will also be plenty on offer outside of what will be happening on a match day, so I have no doubt it will be a busy and engaging partnership in the time ahead, which will continue to deliver for our club and supporters across the province.”
