Tipperary GAA are seeking a new jersey sponsor with Teneo's involvement coming to an end.

The global CEO advisory firm owned by Portroe man Declan Kelly, will not be renewing its sponsorship of Tipperary hurling and football teams once the current deal expires at the end of this season.

The New York headquarted company came on board as sponsors of Tipperary GAA in January 2019 as part of a three-year agreement. 

Tipperary county board Joe Kennedy is confident that they can find a suitable successor to Teneo whom he thanked after "a very mutually enjoyable and successful tenure" which brought about an All-Ireland SHC triumph in 2019 and a first Munster SFC title since 1935.

"We have commenced a process to secure a partner that will pick up from our outgoing sponsors Teneo in matching our ambition for the development and success of our games in the county," Kennedy said in a statement.

"The Tipperary brand is among the strongest in Gaelic Games, as results over recent years have shown. In the past three years, our hurlers won an All-Ireland senior hurling title and U-20 title, while last year also showed the depth of Tipperary as a dual county with our famous Munster football final success. We also have a strong supply of talent coming from underage ranks, while off the field, our players are excellent ambassadors for Tipperary and the GAA.  Tipperary, therefore, continues to be an attractive proposition for potential sponsors so we are really confident about the process underway."

He added: "Teneo was a great partner for Tipperary and we are hugely grateful for its support. We had three brilliant years, which conclude in December, so this was a very mutually enjoyable and successful tenure. We are also grateful to Teneo that, through its Teneo Sponsorship team, it is bringing expertise to bear in helping us secure the best possible partner for the future."
