Tallaght Stadium naming rights to be sold off by SDCC

The naming rights for Tallaght Stadium are to be sold off by South Dublin County Council.

With a further €11.5m currently being invested on upgrading the ground and on building a fourth stand that will take capacity to over 10,000 by July 2023, SDCC are keen to recoup funds.

The stadium hosts Shamrock Rovers' home games as well as Ireland women's and men's under-21 internationals, as well as other SSE Airtricity League club's European games on occasion due to its UEFA Category 4 status.

SDCC has opened a tender process for the naming rights.

"With stadium seating and temporary on-field seating, the venue could accommodate up to 20,000 people and therefore South Dublin County Council also intends to use the stadium as a major concert and event centre, with the intention to host the first large-scale concert over the next 18 months," read a SDCC statement.

The council's CEO Daniel McLoughlin commented: “This significant commercial opportunity represents another exciting milestone in the development of Tallaght Stadium.

"The venue has proved to be an incredible success within South Dublin County and in Tallaght, serving as a unique identifier, source of pride and focus point for the wider community.

"The naming rights to the stadium represents a unique opportunity for a new commercial partner to be right at the heart of a thriving community which will benefit directly with the reinvestment of funds arising in local sporting and community projects.”
