On November 18th 2012 Atlanta’s Rira Irish Pub officially became VaHi ATLetic FC sponsor for the 2012-2013 ADASL Season
(ATLetic’s manager Felipe Lobelo and RiRa’s manager Dermot Lloyd with seal off the partnership for the 2012-2013 season)
Team management had been looking for the right partnership opportunity and Rira Irish Pub had everything they were looking for: a friendly environment in the vicinity of the VaHi neighborhood for players, families and supporters to congregate after games for drinks and food. Soon enough the team’s anthems, ALE FORZA ALETI ALE, will be heard in the Pub on Sunday’s after games when the team celebrates their victories or lick their wounds.
RiRa’s manager Dermot Lloyd was delighted to be able to support a local soccer team, specially one with an international flavor, winning mentality on the pitch and a laid back one off the pitch as ATLetic. Soon you will be able to see ATLetic’s jersey prominently displayed in the Pub’s walls alongside the ones for the Rugby and Gaelic teams also sponsored. The team will also meet there for the team’s Holiday Party and fundraiser events so stay tuned!
We look forward to see you supporting the team on the field as games are free and open to the public. ATletic’s game schedule and field locations can be found here.
After the games we look forward to grab a drink with our supporters at Rira Irish Pub, located at the corner of Crescent and 12th streets (1080 Peachtree St NE,Suite 1) – (free 2 hour parking)
ATLetic’s Scott Stilwell (and future ATLetic #1 Ian Stilwell), Juan Torres and family, Jeremy Nodine, Felipe Lobelo, Josh Merfeld, Thomas Waller (and friends) and Mauricio Lascano) met after the game on 11/18 at Rira Irish Pub
