SUPERCUPNI HAVING A BALL WITH UHLSPORT

SuperCupNI have announced a partnership that will see German sports brand, uhlsport as the official ball sponsor of the illustrious international youth tournament which marks its 40th anniversary this year.

For 75 years, uhlsport has stood for the best quality and highest performance. It is their mission to equip athletes with the best equipment and to reliably stand by their side.

The deal with uhlsport, which has been official ball supplier of the NI Football League since May 2016, will see their footballs take centre stage at 150 matches with 64 teams throughout the five days of the tournament. 

Victor Leonard of SuperCupNI explains, “The quality of the teams and the standard of football played throughout the SuperCupNI week requires the best quality equipment available. Securing the support of a leading brand like uhlsport is testament to the excellent reputation the tournament enjoys and is a wonderful fit for both organisations. We are delighted to welcome them on board for our 40th anniversary and look forward to some outstanding performances that will no doubt be enhanced by the footballs supplied.”  

Melanie Steinhilber, Director Markets and Member of the Managing Board at uhlsport “We are very happy to support SuperCupNI. The fact that players from the Elite teams will also be taking part this year is undoubtedly very exciting and pleases us in particular. The quality of the tournament, which has developed steadily over the years, is exceptional and the perfect platform for our uhlsport products.”

“SuperCupNI serves as a strong anchor for our Northern Ireland operations,” said Brian Hutchinson, Sales Representative for Ireland & Scotland. “It offers a highly professional platform that effectively drives our business development, thanks to its quality and professionalism.”
