Rovers rev up new sponsors

CAR company Seat will be confirmed as Shamrock Rovers' title sponsor for the 2012 season later today.

Current sponsors Woodies DIY will continue their association with the club, as the Hoops cash in on the success of their resurgence in Tallaght.

Further details of the relationship with Seat will be clarified this evening. The company -- which was founded in Spain -- already has a link-up with Rovers midfielder Stephen Rice.

After claiming back-to-back League of Ireland titles and making history by qualifying for the Europa League group stages, Rovers are in a position to dominate Irish football for some time.

The only major question mark ahead of 2012 is the future of manager Michael O'Neill, who is yet to commit to a new deal while the job as boss of Northern Ireland remains vacant.

Rovers have one match remaining in their marathon season, with the visit of Premier League giants Spurs on December 15.
