Aspira, the enterprise IT Company were unveiled early in 2016 as a principle sponsor of Cork City FC. This year has seen Cork City embark on a record-equaling run of victories in Europe, culminating in tonight’s historic 3rd round Europa Qualifier against KRC Genk with the first leg played at the Belgian team’s Luminus Arena tonight (televised live 7pm on eir Sport 1).
Aspira’s support for Cork City FC means they’ll do whatever they can to give the team an edge. This week they flew their Director of Operations, Mary Dwyer, over to Belgium to offer support to the management and team. As Project Management experts, they know that detailed planning, determined execution and collaborative teamwork is the key to success. Aspira are proud to be associated with a team that has done so much already this year to champion those values.
Before flying to Belgium, Mary was in Turner’s Cross to congratulate Alan Bennett on setting a club record of 24 European appearances. Alan, a former Irish International has plenty of experience of the big occasion and knows that Irish teams can compete with – and beat – some of the high profile international names. Aspira support that view, 110%.
Mary reports back that the team is in good form, with no late injuries, and are focused and determined to keep the tie alive for the second leg next week. Meanwhile, back in Ireland, Aspira CEO Pat Lucey, is waiting patiently in the Turner’s Cross dressing room for the home game, still hoping for a call up after all these years…
