The sports industry in Northern Ireland (host of the 2019 Open Championship) is constantly developing and introducing cutting-edge sponsorship, merchandising and broadcasting deals. Technology is also improving, helping to reach wider audiences and expanding the commercial playing field.

In such a fast-moving environment, it is vital that clients are provided with comprehensive advice to tackle any commercial challenge which arises. The Keystone NI Sports team have excellent commercial knowledge and deal regularly with local and international sponsors of European Tour golf events and with both the governing bodies of the European Tour and the LPGA. Where necessary we are also able to draw on the experience of other colleagues for advice on corporate, employment, litigation, tax and competition law, or any other areas of law as required.

The clients we work for in this sector include sponsors and rights holders, stadium and championship golf club operators, sports clubs, horse owners, trainers and breeders, football agents, and boxing trainers. We also advise individual sportsmen and women.

Keystone NI are also the current shirt sponsor of the University of Ulster GAA School of Excellence.
