It’s wasn’t just the players that lit up the Ravenhill pitch when Ulster took on Leicester in Round 5 of the Heineken Cup. Local firm Balloo Hire has signed a three year agreement with Ulster Rugby to be the Official Floodlight Partner to the club.

Balloo Hire Centres will this year celebrate 25 years as one of Northern Ireland’s leading specialist plant, tool and equipment hire providers with depots in Belfast, Bangor, Lisburn and Ballyclare.

Managing Director Paul Lavery said, “We at Balloo Hire are big fans of Ulster Rugby and so are many of our customers.  We are delighted to be the official sponsors of the floodlights at Ravenhill; the home of Ulster Rugby.  We wish all the boys every success for the rest of the season.”


Lyndsey Irwin, External Relations Senior Manager for Ulster Rugby said, “It is great to have one of Northern Ireland’s leading hire firms on board as sponsor.  There is an ever increasing strong link between sport and local business in Northern Ireland and
I am confident that both Balloo Hire and Ulster Rugby will benefit from the sponsorship.”
