Sponsorship sorted for MTU athletics

The MTU Athletics Club has secured a ponsorship deal for the upcoming acadmeic year, a first for the club.

The deal was announced this week with new partners H2 Compliance who will provide financial support for the club’s facilities and programmes.

Located in the Rubicon at MTU, H2 Compliance is a consulting firm that provides solutions for chemical and environmental compliance.

The new partnership was marked at an awards ceremony at MTU recently.

Kevin Hoban, Director of H2 Compliance in Cork, was on hand to present awards for athletes of the year, with Ben Donovan taking the men’s prize and Lucy Holmes coming out on top in the women’s category.

Commenting on the two winners, Mr Hoban said: “Their success across their multiple campus locations, on the track and field is exemplary.

“The ongoing capital investment into the training facilities will ensure continued growth and recognition of the college, growing its national and international,” he added.

Craig Harrington, Athletics Development Officer at MTU, said: “We’re delighted to have H2 Compliance coming on board to sponsor the Athletics Club. Given that the company has had an on-campus presence at the MTU’s Rubicon for a number of years, it feels like a very natural partnership.”
