A new five-year sponsorship deal between Bank of Ireland and Leinster will be unveiled today with the new agreement believed to be worth in the region of €6million.

Just over 15pc of the money is understood to have been ring-fenced for the promotion of the amateur and underage game throughout the province.

The bank's current deal with the reigning Pro12 champions was due to expire at the end of next season.

The new deal will run until June 2019.

With the financial clout of French and English clubs putting pressure on Pro12 clubs to compete, the new deal will be greeted with delight at Leinster rugby and the IRFU.
