Glentoran FC is delighted to announce that Box It (Ireland) Ltd has extended and expanded its agreement as a key sponsor of the club.

For the next three seasons, Box It (Ireland) Ltd will sponsor all Glentoran social media activity and also GlensTV. The company also has its name on the back of all back of all shirts worn by both men’s and women’s teams at Glentoran.

Box -it – led in Northern Ireland by Glens legend Darren Lockhart – said of the expanded agreement:

“Box It (Ireland) Ltd has a common with Glentoran FC. The company was born in the shadow of Samson & Goliath, two of the great landmarks of the city of Belfast.

As a local company we are very proud to be associated with a Football club with such a long and distinguished history and we were particularly delighted to learn of Glentoran FC’s transition to full time status and of the sterling work they are doing within East Belfast, where they have cemented their association and become even more established as an integral component in the DNA of this great city.

From the increased media coverage in recent years, we are all very much aware of the important contribution that women’s football is playing in the metamorphosis of the game. The success of Glentoran Women in completing the clean sweep of trophies has contributed invaluably to the legacy of Glentoran football club and to the community of East Belfast.

Competitiveness is as essential to the success of Irish League Football as it is to the packaging industry. At Box It we like to mix the two, with ex Glens midfielder Darren Lockhart at the helm and ex Blues defender Paul Mooney in charge of our sales team, there is plenty of banter to be heard in the office not to mention a few confused looks amongst staff who are too young to remember when there were only four channels on tv.

We are proud to continue our association with Glentoran FC through our sponsorship and trust that our partnership will help to bring continued success long into the future.”

The Glentoran Board and management warmly and sincerely thank Darren and the Box It (Ireland) team for their continued support. They are a great friend and supporter to have onboard.
