    Sharks are as tough as those football fans who take their shirts off during games in England in January, only more intelligent.

    Any title sponsor is better than none at all. The amount isn't disclosed in that press release but I'd say is big considering the size of the company

    yeah that is true, will they release the figures i wonder though, or will we find out at the end of the season when all the prize money is added up?

    It will probably leak out at some stage soon! These things always do. I don't think that Airtricity have any big deals (if any at all) with other sports so from that point of view its a good deal for the FAI to secure.

    It'll probably not impact on prize money or financially for the league, just more cash to the general FAI coffers.
    If you attack me with stupidity, I'll be forced to defend myself with sarcasm.

    I agree with Dodge there. There should be some deal for clubs out of this. Though I also remember the peat briquette thing very well! The Smart Telecom deal was in place when the league was the Eircom League - was there any conflict over that?

    Aitricity League? ffs. Absolutely awful, the Airticity League of Ireland would be slightly less embarassing. Yet again the FAI bite the hand off anyone waving around a fiver and continue to let the general impression of the League go to the dogs. Somethings are worth more than an initial lump sum, giving an impression of professionalism and not making the league look like an amateur competition is one of them if anyone was willing to take a long term look approach.

    I see they didn't even bother to register airticityleague.ie yet.

    yeah, the club ahd to argue that the league was sponssored by a telephone company and Smart were a broadband providor (or something like that)

    I don't have a problem with a title sponsor but surely it has to be Airtricity League of Ireland, let's try and build the League of Ireland brand, crap and all as it is.

    Good call and possibly a chance for the clubs to get a collective deal on one of the major outlays ? Surely potential for a group deal with the company now sponsoring the League.

    100% agreed. I believe the most unique selling point our league has is the Irishness. Would love to see that reflected in the title.

    Absolutely.

    Whatever sponsor's name there is should be followed by "league of Ireland".
