Brian O’Sullivan, a Fermoy native and EY Entrepreneur of the Winner in 2021 is the Owner of Zeus. Brian had the following to say at the launch of the partnership: “Cork City FC is a high-profile successful football club with a fantastic fan base and ambitious future plans to grow both on and off the field. These plans mirror our business ambitions. We are proud to be the club’s front of shirt sponsor for the next three years and look forward to building our relationship with the club and the fan base. ”
Paul Deasy, Commercial Manager for Cork City Football Club also added: “We are delighted to get this over the line and secure a new front-of-shirt partner for the club for the next three years. From the moment we sat down with Brian, the partnership felt right. From where the company started from, to where it is now and to where it is going, it is a fantastic fit for the club. It was extremely important from the outset of this proceeding that we wanted to have the same partner cover the senior Men’s, Women’s and Amputee teams and Brian was fully supportive of and in agreement with this from the beginning. Brian and Zeus are a huge Cork success story, and we are looking forward to working with them over the next number of years. I would also like to thank our outgoing main sponsors University College Cork and Jackie Lennox Chip shop for their wonderful support and look forward to continuing to work with them”.
