Linda Djougang is Opel Ireland's latest Brand Ambassador

Irish Rugby star Linda Djougang, has been appointed Opel Brand Ambassador and presented with a new Opel Mokka, writes Trish Whelan. Clocking up her 29th cap for Ireland’s XVs at the recent TikTok Women’s Six Nations, prop Linda joins her 7s comrades Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe, and Stacey Flood as Opel Brand Ambassador.

Linda moved to Ireland from Cameroon at the age of 9, grew up in Rush, County Dublin, and is a nursing graduate from Trinity College Dublin. A former Trinity Sports Person of the Year winner, she and her XVs comrades can look back on the recent Six Nations 2023 competition as a steep learning curve for the young team, with the first building blocks now laid for future campaigns.

James Brooks, Opel Ireland Managing Director said that Opel has consistently been at the forefront of support for both Ireland's Men’s and Women’s teams. "The appointment of a third brand ambassador is a natural step for us to further align ourselves with the rugby arena and demonstrate our lasting support for the Women’s teams," he added. "Linda Djougang is a very driven young woman, full of fun and with an infectious, bubbly personality. A talented sportswoman, she is a wonderful role model for Irish women. I welcome her warmly to Team Opel and wish her continued success in her rugby career.”
