City sign Zeus up front

Cork City FC’s latest signing is a major Cork player. Zeus Packaging Group is set to adorn the club’s shirt as the new sponsor as part of a new three year commercial deal.

The agreement will see the Zeus Packaging Group logo displayed on the front of the club’s senior mens, womens and amputee team jerseys for the the next three seasons.

Established by Fermoy native Brian O’Sullivan in 1998, Zeus is global packaging solutions company.

Headquartered in Ireland and employing over 870 people and operating in nearly 30 countries, Zeus offers a total solution to customers around their packaging requirements, innovation, design, sustainability, IT and logistics. Zeus will have annualised turnover in 2022 of over €400m.

Brian O’Sullivan, EY Entrepreneur of the Winner in 2021 is the owner of Zeus.

Brian said: “Cork City FC is a high-profile successful football club with a fantastic fan base and ambitious future plans to grow both on and off the field. These plans mirror our business ambitions. We are proud to be the club’s front of shirt sponsor for the next three years and look forward to building our relationship with the club and the fan base.”

Paul Deasy, Commercial Manager for Cork City Football Club added: “We are delighted to get this over the line and secure a new front-of-shirt partner for the club for the next three years.

“From the moment we sat down with Brian, the partnership felt right. From where the company started from, to where it is now and to where it is going, it is a fantastic fit for the club. It was extremely important from the outset of this proceeding that we wanted to have the same partner cover the senior mens, womens and amputee teams and Brian was fully supportive of and in agreement with this from the beginning.

“Brian and Zeus are a huge Cork success story, and we are looking forward to working with them over the next number of years. I would also like to thank our outgoing main sponsors UCC and Jackie Lennox Chip shop for their wonderful support and look forward to continuing to work with them,” he said.

The new 2023 away and third shirts featuring the Zeus Packaging logo are now available to pre-order via the CCFC Online Shop.
