This weekend Allianz are marking their 30th year of the Allianz Leagues with teams wearing retro county kits inspired by the 1993/94 season when they first became title sponsor of the competition. The jersey designs are inspired by those worn in the first year of Allianz’s sponsorship and will be worn by six counties across hurling and football this weekend. In a replay of the 2021 All Ireland Football final, the squads from Tyrone and Mayo will wear the retro kit on Saturday 19th as will the players from Galway, Clare, Wexford, and Cork in their hurling fixtures on Sunday 20th March.
The jerseys will not be available on public sale but supporters will have a unique chance to win one of the six county jerseys signed by the team in a charity raffle with all funds raised going to Allianz’s charity partner, Women’s Aid who work to combat domestic violence in Ireland.
Allianz will match the funds raised through the raffle up to €5,000. To enter the raffle simply visit www.idonate.ie/raffle/AllianzWomensAid
CEO of Allianz Ireland, Seán McGrath said: “This season marks the 30th year that we have sponsored the Allianz Leagues, making it one of the longest sponsorships in Irish sport. To mark this special anniversary Allianz has worked with O’Neills to design jerseys and shorts inspired by those worn by teams in the first season of Allianz’ sponsorship three decades ago. We’re really looking forward to seeing the teams line out in the retro jerseys and through the signed jersey raffle we hope to raise significant funds for our charity partner Women’s Aid”.
