D'you want to sponsor a Kildare footballer for the 2014 season? First off, you're going to have to establish a small business in Kildare and then achieve a minimum turnover €250.
Well, Kildare GAA are asking businesses in Kildare to sponsor a Kildare player for the coming season to the tune of €250. In exchange for this, businesses will get acknowledgement of their support in every match programme in St. Conleth's Park during the League campaign.
For the small sum of €250, businesses in Kildare now have a unique opportunity to sponsor a Kildare GAA Senior Footballer for the 2014 season. Kildare GAA is hoping to get the support of 40 Kildare businesses over the next week. For their sponsorship, businesses will get acknowledgement of their support in every match programme in St Conleth's Park during Kildare's League campaign.
Kildare have been in a kind of an IMF situation for a while now. Former Munster Council Secretary Simon Moroney was appointed by Croke Park to oversee the board's financial affairs.
Kildare have been facing serious financial difficulties since late 2012 and last year they were unable to raise the amount of money they needed to pay back their scheduled loan repayment to Croke Park. They had received a substantial loan from the GAA to cover day-to-day running costs early last year, but by the end of the year were only going to pay back six months worth.
