Another lucky business will get the chance to be Munster's 'Sponsor for a Day' on one of the biggest day's of the rugby calendar.

In conjunction with Bank of Ireland, Munster Rugby players will wear the winning company's logo for their Champions Cup clash against French champions Stade Francais in January.

As well as the jersey sponsorship, the winning SME will avail of the €50,000-valued prize which includes: pitch signage; corporate hospitality for ten guests; a match programme advert; photographs with the team; and promotion from Bank of Ireland and Munster Rugby through press and media.

This year Bank of Ireland has partnered with the Ray D'Arcy show on RTé for 'Sponsor for a Day 2015' which will provide companies that enter the competition with brand exposure on a prime time national radio show.

Alan Long, production manager of last year's winner Irish Yogurts, says the competition has made a huge impact on their business.

"Seeing the Irish Yogurts logo on the Munster jersey was a proud moment for all of us and the exposure it generated for the company has continued long after the competition has ended," he said.

Companies can enter the competition via bankofireland.com/sponsorforaday from today until the closing date of October 28. A shortlist of five companies will be announced on November 3 at which point the competition will be opened to a public vote.

The voting will close on November 24 and this year's lucky winner will be announced on November 26.
