Ford to sponsor Off the Ball on Newstalk

Ford Ireland is to sponsor Newstalk's sports programme, Off the Ball which will now broadcast seven days a week, replacing Newstalk Sport Saturday and Newstalk Sport Sunday, writes Trish Whelan.

Ford's sponsorship began yesterday and will run until the end of September, 2014.

Newstalk sports editor, Ger Gilroy, says "We're thrilled to be partnering with Ford who have such a clear affinity with sport."

"Ford, both globally and here in Ireland, has a long history of involvement in sport - just think of our support of the Champion's League and closer to home, with the FAI Ford Cup and you will see why this sponsorship is a great fit for Ford," says Ford Ireland's Director of Marketing Ciaran McMahon.
