FREE NOW, Ireland’s leading multi-mobility app, is partnering with Munster Rugby as the Official Mobility App Partner through 2025. The new partnership will bring FREE NOW and Munster Rugby together for the 2022-23 season and over the next three years.
This announcement builds on FREE NOW’s commitment to supporting local communities and organizations across the country by providing flexible and sustainable transport solutions to help meet Ireland’s changing transport needs.
Since launching its sustainable ECO (EV/Hybrid) booking option on the app last year for passengers in Cork, adoption of eco-friendly journeys on the FREE NOW app has increased by 430%, 28% from the Cork fleet being ECO. This feature will be available to Munster Rugby supporters, staff and players, facilitating more sustainable transport choices based on matches and team travel needs.
As part of this partnership, fans attending upcoming matches will be able to enter competitions for a chance to win FREE NOW vouchers.
Speaking at the launch of the partnership, FREE NOW Regional Development Manager Denis Fogarty said“We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Munster Rugby for the next three years and as a former Munster player myself for over 12 years I am truly delighted with this new sponsorship and to see FREE NOW supporting the sport in the region of Munster.
FREE NOW has been providing public transport solutions for passengers in Cork for almost 10 years now and we look forward to expanding our offer in the coming years in the region, helping more people get from A to B thanks to our fleet of partner drivers across the country.”
Welcoming the news of the partnership, Munster Rugby CEO Ian Flanagan said, “We are excited to partner with FREE NOW to expand our offering to our support base. Working with an organization with a shared sense of community and sustainability at the center of its offering is hugely important to us and we look forward to the next three years with FREE NOW.
