Irish retailer to gift local team’s players with TAG Heuer watches.
Jeweller Hartmanns of Galway will present one of TAG Heuer’s Rugby World Cup 2011/12 watches to the Connacht Player of the Month, as it celebrates the sport.
The award will be presented monthly to Connacht players who have demonstrated exceptional skill on the pitch as well as displaying dedication to the club, integration with the squad and interaction with the wider community.
Speaking about the partnership Connacht Rugby’s commercial manager Fiona Keys said: “We are thrilled Hartmanns of Galway will be sponsoring our Player of the Month award with such an exclusive prize. As the leading jewellers in the West of Ireland, Hartmanns of Galway are synonymous with integrity, value, quality and service and we see these characteristics as a very close fit with our own.”
Head Coach of Connacht Eric Elwood added: “The Player of the Month award is highly sought after within the squad as it reflects not just the hard work the guys do on the pitch but the contribution they make off the field as well. Having a family owned business with a reputation such as Hartmanns of Galway sponsoring the award, with a TAG Heuer watch, adds incredible value to the honour and we are delighted with the partnership.”
Richard Hartmann, director of Hartmanns said he was excited about the partnership. “It provides us with a unique and innovative way to interact with the Connacht Rugby and align both brands. TAG Heuer are the official timekeepers or the Rugby World Cup and it is very fitting that we can offer this exclusive prize to the Connacht Player of the Month.”
