The Wexford Senior Hurling Team will once again represent their county when they line out in Citi Field Stadium New York to participate in the Super 11s New York Hurling Classic on Saturday, November 16th.
Not only will the Purple and Gold of Wexford proudly grace the well-known baseball park, but the Wexford jersey will be emblazoned on the back with the “Visit Wexford” logo as the boys of Wexford do their part to promote Wexford, the cornerstone of Ireland’s Ancient East, on the New York stage.
Speaking at the launch, Tourism Development Officer for Wexford County Council, Billy Byrne said “Wexford County Council and Visit Wexford are delighted with the prospect of promoting Wexford to the US audience in this unique way, and are indebted to Wexford GAA for affording them this wonderful opportunity”.
Wexford GAA are delighted to get the opportunity to promote tourism in Wexford and especially at an international level. We would like to thank Glanbia Ireland for allowing us the opportunity to wear the Visit Wexford Logo on the back of the jerseys for the Super 11s New York Hurling Classic. The hurlers will wear this one-of-a-kind customised playing kit for the New York Hurling Classic which takes place at Citi Field in New York on November 16th.
For those supporters travelling to New York, on Saturday, November 16th starting at 7pm, Jack Doyle’s will host a post-tournament After Party for all Wexford fans which will feature free food all evening and favourable discount rates for drinks as well as live music.
