Three Telecom is a sponsor of the Republic of Ireland national soccer team and its kit sponsor. While FIFA regulations do not allow for the display of sponsor logo on match kits, they may be featured on replica shirts sold to fans. Hence the appearance of the mobile phone provider’s logo on Ireland’s replica jerseys.
Since St. Patrick’s Day 2012 takes place on March 17th, we’re kicking off festivities with the Three Football girls. They are a series of soccer babes who represent Three at Republic of Ireland national team events including international matches and kit launches. Soccer jersey fans will notice them in the Ireland Umbro 2011/12 (and possibly EURO 2012) home kit in some of the pictures.
