Butterfly new equipment sponsor for national teams
The ITTA are delighted to announce the appointment of Butterfly as the Official Clothing Supplier to Irish International Teams. The sponsorship deal covers the next 4 years, and will see Butterfly supply all clothing for the Senior Mens and Womens National Teams together with the Junior and Cadets National Teams.
The Irish Junior and Senior National Championships, our most prestigious domestic tournaments, together with the Irish Junior and Senior Ranking Lists will also be rebranded under the Butterfly banner.
ITTA Marketing Director Tony Farrell expressed his delight with the agreement:
" The ITTA are delighted to announce the appointment of Butterfly and Tees Sport as the Official Clothing Supplier to our International Teams. The Butterfly brand has developed an international reputation for quality through its products and service, and we look forward to working with Butterfly and Tees Sport over the next 4 years. Importantly, this sponsorship deal will allow the ITTA to optimise its resources in developing the levels of participation and performance throughout Ireland.
Alan Ransome, Managing Director of Tees Sport and Butterfly representative, stated:
"On behalf of Butterfly, I am delighted to have reached an agreement with the Irish Table Tennis Association for all the national teams to play in Butterfly clothing for their international fixtures. I have no doubt that this will have the twin benefits of helping to raise the image and profile of the Butterfly brand throughout Ireland and add significantly to the promotion of the brand at all the international tournaments both at home and abroad in which the Irish team compete. It is our intention to increase our market share within Ireland and this agreement is an important part of our strategy to achieve this objective.
