The Tribe Hospitality Group has become official catering partners to Connacht Rugby for the next three years.
The catering partnership involves the delivery of individual hot meals to all senior and academy squad members three times a week. Tribe Hospitality will also cater for all of Connacht Rugby’s post-match hospitality beginning with the 2020/21 season.
The Galway-based company will provide both pre and post-match food to all Connacht Rugby and opposition squad members for the next three seasons.
Working alongside Connacht Rugby’s coaches and nutritionists, Leroy Marshall of Tribe Hospitality has created a variety of meals while keeping in line with their nutritional needs.
Speaking about the partnership, Tribe owner Kevin Nugent said: “we are incredibly excited to announce this news and become partners with Connacht Rugby for the next three years. The last number of months has been challenging for everyone, but it is great to be able to deliver a positive story. I left the Sportsground 10 years ago this August as restaurant manager to begin my own journey in hospitality setting up Mr Waffle, so it is an incredible feeling to return as official catering partner. The partnership with Connacht has allowed us to reemploy two more staff again. We are looking forward to delivering the food each week and supporting the lads in the Sportsground soon!”
Tribe Hospitality Group is better known by its popular cafes across Galway city including Ground & Co in Salthill, Baby Ground & Co in Knocknacarra, Mr Waffle in Newcastle, Delight Café on Renmore Avenue, Kingfisher in NUIG, and also SAOL Café in NUIG. All shops have now reopened for takeaway and sit-in, with the exception of Delight NUIG and SAOL Café which will reopen at a later date.
