Circle K has announced its support for Ireland’s Olympic squad in a new agreement that will see the forecourt retailer become the official fuel and convenience partner to the Irish Olympic team as it begins its journey to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The two-year partnership commences immediately, and will be integrated across Circle K’s nationwide network, ensuring enhanced visibilty for Team Ireland.
The partnership was announced by Irish Olympian and European and World Championship bronze medallist Shane Ryan (Swimming) and World Championship Bronze medallist Jenny Egan (Canoeing). They joined Circle K MD Niall Anderton and Olympic Federation of Ireland CEO Peter Sherrard to announce the partnership at the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown, Dublin.
“Circle K is at the heart of communities across the country,” said Anderton. “We recognise the important role played by Team Ireland’s athletes within those communities, and so we are proud to be a part of each individual athlete’s journey as well as the collective ambition of Team Ireland ahead of the Tokyo 2020 games.”
“We look forward to working with our partners in the Olympic Federation of Ireland and to fuelling Team Ireland’s athletes through qualifications and beyond,” he added.
Peter Sherrard, CEO of the Olympic Federation of Ireland, said that Circle K’s joining is a “big statement”.
“Our athletes work extremely hard to represent us on the world stage,” he said, “so the support of a partner like Circle K means a lot at this decisive time.”
