We love football. And our partnership with the Irish international football team and our position as ‘Official Vehicle Supplier to the FAI’ builds on our worldwide dedication to the sport.

Ford’s association and passion for Irish football goes back a long way. Fordsons, the company team made up of employees from the Ford factory in Cork, played in the first ever FAI Cup in 1922 and went on to win the competition in 1926.

In more recent years, Ford was a proud sponsor of the FAI Cup for eight years.

Our connection to football goes right down to the grassroots level in Ireland as Ford provides a fleet of vehicles for the FAI’s team of Development Officers who work in schools, clubs and communities right across the country, developing and growing the game at every level.
