Financing our club

We are a strictly amateur club and do not pay any of our players. However we have substantial running costs including pitch hire and maintenance, playing kit and training equipment, coaching and physiotherapy costs, player insurance and IRFU Ulster Branch affiliation fees.  We therefore depend on the support of our valued sponsors to help us pay our bills and keep the club solvent.
