DHL Express Ireland has strengthened its commitment to Irish football ahead of the start of the new SSE Airtricity League of Ireland season, signing a new partnership with long established Dublin club Bohemian FC.
The new agreement will see DHL continue its longstanding history and involvement with Bohemian FC, which stretches back over a decade and indeed with Irish football, as partners with the FAI for over 25 years.
Commenting on the new deal Bernard McCarthy, MD DHL Express Ireland said: “I’m pleased to further strengthen our relationship with Bohemians by signing this three-year partnership deal. We have been Bohemians’ international shipping partner for a number of years and have also worked closely with the club on other projects such as delivering Christmas gifts for children in direct provision. It’s important to us that this partnership is as much about success off the pitch and it’s clear that we have common interests in areas such as sustainability, celebrating diversity and working closely with the local community. Given these common interests and shared values I’m sure that we can achieve great things together in the future.”
Bohemian’s Chief Operating Officer Dan Lambert added: “We are delighted to welcome DHL to our family of partners at Bohemian FC and have them on our jerseys for the next three seasons. DHL are a global market leader in the logistics industry with a very strong presence throughout Ireland and globally so are the perfect fit as our Official Logistics Partner. This is especially relevant as we begin shipping our 2022 away jersey across the globe utilising ‘climate neutral shipping’ with DHL for all deliveries. I would also like to thank them for their huge support over the past number of years in delivering gifts to children in Direct Provision Centres across the country, supporting our work with those in the asylum system. We are really looking forward to working with DHL and to building an even stronger partnership together in the coming years. This partnership focuses on core pillars of logistics excellence, our climate responsibilities and inclusiveness in our shared communities.”
As ‘The Team Behind The Team’, DHL will provide bespoke solutions in its role of Official Logistics Partner. Football aligns with many of DHL’s values, with passion, teamwork and a can-do attitude representing the essential requirements for delivering excellence both on and off the pitch.
