Sponsorship - Supporting Our Communities | Ulster Bank


Supporting what really matters to the community


Our involvement in sponsorship is about creating meaningful connections with our customers and supporting what really matters to the community and society as a whole. It is our sponsorships that make some of our best community programmes both possible and powerful and allows us to engage in people’s everyday lives.


IRFU Community Partner

Rugby at a professional level will always receive the highest profile, but a growing and vibrant club league is crucial to the ongoing success of the sport. Local clubs and club players are the life-blood of the game and the Ulster Bank League in 2012/2013 will no doubt showcase some of the stars of the future. Ulster Bank strengthened its link with Irish Rugby in 2011, becoming the Official Community Partner to the IRFU, a partnership which includes title sponsorship of the All-Ireland Club League along with the Irish Club International team until 2014.


RBS 6 Nations

Our parent company The Royal Bank of Scotland has sponsored the 6 Nations tournament since 2003. This has helped establish the championship as the highlight of the northern hemisphere rugby season. During the RBS 6 Nations 2012 Ulster Bank hosted a nationwide trophy tour with players and also toured the country with the Ulster Bank kick for a ticket. 






The Balmoral Show

The Balmoral Show is Ireland’s largest Agricultural and Food Show. We became The Balmoral Show’s first ever principal sponsor in 2009 to help the show become even bigger and better at a critical time for the agri-food sector in Northern Ireland, and we have been delighted with the success of the partnership to date. Not only is it a fantastic opportunity for us to meet and build relationships with farmers and other agri businesses, it is also a great fun event, enjoyed by families from across Northern Ireland and beyond.
