Home of the Claret and Blue Army and founded in 1919, Drogheda United FC are celebrating their centenary year and Blackstone Motors are delighted to come on board as the Long-Term Official Car Partner of the club.
Since amalgamating Drogheda United and Drogheda FC in 1975, the Drogs have achieved some success since. They won their first FAI Cup in 2005, and won back-to-back Setanta Cups in 2006 and 2007.
After some difficult years financially, Conor Hoey’s main goals as the newly appointed Chairman of the club are to see Drogheda United return to the Premier Division, deliver the proposed new stadium and restore credibility to the club.
“The 100 year anniversary is an ideal time to refocus the club in the community. We need to celebrate making it to 100 years but also need to try to change the perception of the club with fans, schools, local businesses, suppliers etc.”
Blackstone have proudly come on board to help build the local club back up. We are the sole car Partner of Drogheda United FC and recently handed over a brand new 192 Renault TRAFIC Kit Van to Conor Hoey, Chairman, Drogheda United FC.
