In the beginning....

From a very tender age I had a football at my feet or a Shoot / Roy of the Rovers magazine in my hand, engrossed in all things football. Little changed over the years.

Playing, Watching, Learning, Loving the beautiful game.
A beautiful game that has provided the ideal platform for me to make a living out of, for the last 15+ years.
A beautiful game that has given me the pleasure to meet wonderful people, attend amazing stadia and events.

Determination has been part of my DNA for as long as I can recall. A trait that has been required on many many days. With that drive I have become a highly ambitious and highly accomplished Commercial Manager who has established an exceptional record of achievements within this field through roles with Halpin Sport Sponsorship, a company I founded, Glentoran FC, Bohemian FC and Dundalk FC. My successes within the sporting arena are underpinned by 15+ years’ experience as a Managing Director, Commercial Manager and General Manager, as well as a portfolio of industry knowledge.

I possess a proven track record in delivering brand alignment sponsorship deals and identifying new revenue streams for elite football clubs in Ireland, England, Italy, Spain, Germany and France. All done with a smile on my face as it really is a labour of love.

Throughout my professional career I have been a proactive individual who is proficient in designing and implementing best practice techniques to grow business commercial needs and have proven myself to be a visible leader and mentorship figure.

As Managing Director and Founder of Halpin Sport Sponsorship I have a wealth of experience in developing relationship and revenue streams between commercial partners and sporting organisations.

I built this company from its inception to now be one of the leading organisations in the field of football sponsorship.
