Garrett Fitzgerald, CEO of Munster Rugby explained "this is our fourth year hosting these annual breakfast briefings. It is incredible to look at the difference in the business challenges of running Munster Rugby today versus three years ago. These briefings give us an unique opportunity to outline to the broader community the range of commercial activity required to support the operation of a professional rugby team." He added "the redevelopment of Thomond Park, sponsorship deals with Adidas and Toyota along with the launch of a clothing range are just some of the major commercial developments taken place over the past year. Each new season brings major business challenges for Munster Rugby and we have so much to look forward to with the quarter finals of the Heineken Cup approaching and the opening of our new stadium."
The Breakfast Briefings start with a presentation by Munster Rugby CEO, Garret Fitzgerald on "Running a Professional Rugby Team." This will be followed by a Questions & Answers forum with Munster Director of Rugby Declan Kidney who will be joined by several senior players.
