About

  


“PwC is proud to be an official sponsor of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and the Gaelic Players Association (GPA)”


PwC & GAA/GPA
The GAA has established itself as one of the leading sports organisations in the world, which is evidenced by its national and international following, its place in Ireland’s culture and its strong community built up by its membership throughout the 32 counties.

Our partnership is a perfect fit for PwC, as our values of Leadership, Teamwork and Excellence reflect the Association’s culture and underpin the success of both of our organisations.

Supported by the GAA, the GPA’s Player Development Programme assists county hurlers and footballers with their off-field careers

through a comprehensive range of supports in the areas of education, career development, health and well being, life skills and benevolent fund.

Through its sponsorship PwC works together with the GPA and the GAA to play its part in ensuring the continued success of the Player Development Programme.

“PwC are leaders in their field and it is encouraging to note the number of top footballers and hurlers who work with you. I wish everyone involved every success with the ongoing work, all of which benefits our players.” Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Liam Ó Néill



Player Pulse

Each week we’ll be analysing the performance of a selection of key players in a top GAA Championship game, using a unique formula devised by Ray Boyne (former Dublin Senior football analyst) and PwC. Key performance indicators such as tackles, possessions, and passes are measured and assessed for its impact on the game and each player is awarded a Player Pulse score out of 10 – the better the performance, the higher the score.

            Unfortunately the year is over for Wexford which is very frustrating for us a team. To lose to Laois for a second year in a row and by only a point is hard. On reflection I think our team needs more experience. We have a lot of 19 year olds on the panel this year […]

            Yes it has been a positive year for us so far. As a team we are very happy with how the league went this year though, which gives us a boost. We played in Division 1B but were promoted back up to Division 1A which was our goal. We want to be playing at a […]

            It has been an up down year so far for us if I am honest. It was great to get back to a Leinster Final, however, we didn’t perform on the day against Kilkenny. You have to admire their composure and they look like the team to beat at the moment. It was tough after […]

            From the start of the Allianz Leagues, this year the common goal on the team was to perform as a team and thankfully we achieved our first aim in winning the League title. Now it’s on to bigger things, the upcoming Leinster final against Meath. Preparations are going well in the camp so we are […]
