South Dublin County Council has opened a tender process for the exclusive naming rights of Tallaght Stadium.
The stadium is the current home of Shamrock Rovers and the FAI Women’s National Team and the Men’s Under 21 Team.
In a statement, the local authority, which owns the stadium said: “The successful tenderer will benefit from a multitude of commercial options including substantial branding opportunities, extensive editorial mentions, TV broadcast and digital media exposure, ticketing and venue rental opportunities.
“Funded by South Dublin County Council, approximately €11.5 million is currently being invested in the expansion of Tallaght Stadium, which is the only municipal stadium of its kind in Ireland.
“A new North Stand, which is under construction, will increase the overall capacity to 10,000+ and will further cement its position as a top-class arena which consistently hosts elite sporting events. The sod-turning for the new North Stand took place in June and the facility is due to be completed by July 2023.
“The new development will cement Tallaght Stadium’s UEFA Category 4 status, allowing for the hosting of all UEFA competitive fixtures, including Internationals, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League games.”
The Mayor of South Dublin County, Cllr Emma Murphy, said: “Today is a landmark day in the development of Tallaght Stadium as we open the tendering process for naming rights.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for businesses looking to be an integral part of a thriving community and also be a significant supporter of sport in Ireland.
“With the wide range of events to be held at Tallaght Stadium in front of large international and domestic audiences, we’re really looking forward to welcoming a new partner on board to work with us to maximise the most of this new opportunity for all parties.”
