Energise Sport And Ballygowan Partnership Deal

The above news follows news from yesterday (Friday 31 March) that Irish-produced sports drink Energise Sport and Ballygowan Mineral Water, both owned by Britvic Ireland, have announced a four-year deal to become the official hydration partner of the Football Association of Ireland (FAI).


The deal will see Energise Sport and Ballygowan supporting both the Ireland men's and women's national teams, with the men's national team kicking off their UEFA European Championship 2024 Qualifiers and the Women's national team getting set to play in this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Ireland men's national team players Jamie McGrath and Jason Knight took a break from training to help launch the new partnership in the FAI National Training Centre in Abbotstown.

As part of this partnership deal, Energise will ensure the Ireland national team players are supplied with the optimal balance of water, carbohydrates, and electrolytes to hydrate faster for training and match endurance.

Ballygowan will be supporting the partnership with 190,000 bottles of Ballygowan water each year to ensure players have the optimal water intake to maintain a normal water balance during training and matches. All bottles are now made from 100% recycled plastic, and are 100% recyclable.
