Circle K joins The FAI as Official Fuel and Convenience Partner to the Men’s and Women’s National Teams and the first ever title partner of FAI Club Mark, the association’s grassroots award to improve clubs and help grow football in communities throughout Ireland.The partnership announcement comes at an exciting time for Irish football, with the men’s team about to embark on a European qualifying campaign and the women’s team preparing for their first ever World Cup appearance. Circle K’s nationwide reach means it can play a role in helping fans across the country get behind both teams.
As part of the deal, Circle K will sponsor the FAI Club Mark, an awards programme for best practice in the governance, management and administration of grassroots football clubs nationwide. The aim of the FAI Club Mark is to provide clubs with a road map to good governance, reward clubs for achieving and maintaining high standards, recognise clubs for their commitment and achievements and help grow football in local communities.
With a presence in every community in the Republic of Ireland, the partnership will enable Circle K to provide further support to communities, by supporting grassroots football and its many players, coaches, administrators and volunteers.
