Glentoran Football Club is delighted to announce that BOX-IT Ireland, the East Belfast based manufacturer of corrugated boxes,  has signed up to become the club’s official Social and Digital media partner for the next three seasons.  Box-It has been a strong friend to Glentoran in recent years so the club is delighted to formalise the relationship in a manner that will be of great benefit to both parties.

Box-It is headed up by Glentoran player legend, Box-It Director and General Manager Darren Lockhart, still a regular and very welcome match day visitor to the Oval.

As part of the partnership BOX-IT will have a signage presence on all of our digital platforms, at The Oval and on the Glentoran kit.  Going forward there will also be opportunities for Glentoran supporters to engage with the partnership through online competitions and prizes via our online platforms.

Simon Wallace Glentoran Commercial Manager said on completion of the agreement: “I am delighted to welcome BOX-IT Ireland on board as our official social and digital media partner for the next 3 seasons.  Having worked closely with Darren and the BOX-IT Ireland team this season I have seen first hand that they are an outstanding example of an East Belfast business success story who operate on the global stage. It is particularly pleasing to see them giving us such significant backing and support and I look forward to working together with Darren and his colleagues   to ensure a successful partnership”.

Darren Lockhart: “Box-it Ireland Limited have over 25 years experience in manufacturing of bespoke corrugated boxes. Based in Belfast & Newry, we cover all of Ireland, supplying boxes into multiple sectors, including Food, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Medical and Online Retailers. As a business we’re very excited to be associated with an institution as iconic as Glentoran and as a former Glens player and a lifelong supporter I’m equally delighted to have this opportunity to remain involved with the club for at least the next three years.”
