FAI chief executive Jonathan Hill says that the value of the deal they have struck with Sky Ireland to sponsor the senior women's team allowed the Association to green light a standalone deal separate to the men's side. T he announcement of a four-year deal with the broadcast company was described by Hill as a 'historic moment' for the game in this country.

And while Sky Ireland CEO JD Buckley and Hill were both reluctant to divulge the specifics of a contract believed to be worth a substantial six-figure sum per annum, Buckley said: "We are not disclosing the amounts but it's fair to say, from the research we've done, it's more probable than not that it's the biggest deal for Irish women's sport. Inevitably, Hill was faced with questions about the lack of a title sponsor for the men's national team with Buckley confirming that it wasn't on their radar, indicating that Sky's fresh partnership with the English Women's Super League tied in with their attempt to back the game in this country.

We are happy we are investing in a team that has great potential, they're a great squad, I'm so impressed with what I see. It's about putting a spotlight on Irish senior football and women's sport. Ireland senior manager Vera Pauw welcomed the announcement, saying it completed a memorable week following on from the confirmation of an equal pay deal for the men's and women's national sides.
