Ulster rename Ravenhill after sponsorship deal
June 6, 2014
Ulster's Ravenhill ground will be renamed the Kingspan Stadium for next season under a new sponsorship deal.
Kingspan Group, a provider of sustainable building materials, has signed a ten-year deal with the province, promising to invest in rugby at all levels.
"We're delighted to have extended our partnership with Kingspan, one of Ulster's most successful international companies, and to have secured a stadium naming rights partner for the first time," said Ulster chief executive Shane Logan. "This is a landmark deal and one that will have considerable benefits for all of rugby in Ulster.
"I want to thank Kingspan for its long-term commitment to the Province and I look forward to many more special rugby occasions, from school and club finals to European match nights, at Kingspan Stadium in the future."
