Euros 2016: Fancy owning the same tie the Northern Ireland team will wear in France?

And it's in the name of charity

Fancy owning the same tie that Northern Ireland footballers will wear in France?

Well now you can and you will be helping charity at the same time.

A bespoke, limited-edition piece of new memorabilia is now available to Northern Ireland fans, with 500 of the official ties which the international players will be wearing in France this summer going on sale.  

The silk green and navy tie is embossed with the Irish FA logo and comes in a specially-designed presentation box.

Bogart, the Irish FA’s official suit partner, has announced it will be donating a percentage of the sale of every silk tie to Cancer Fund for Children.

The donations will help Cancer Fund for Children in providing vital support to children, teenagers and young adults living with cancer and their families.  

The tie is part of the navy three-piece which was officially unveiled by Northern Ireland stars including Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans in March.

Announcing the charity partnership, John Keenan, Managing Director of Bogart said:  “We’re delighted to partner with Cancer Fund for Children and raise money through the sales of the official Northern Ireland team tie.

"The interest in the suits and ties since they were unveiled has been phenomenal, and it’s nice for the Northern Ireland fans to get the chance to show their support for the team and help the charity at the same time.”

Sorcha Mac Laimhin from Cancer Fund for Children said: “We are delighted to be involved with the Northern Ireland football team. The players have generated a real feel-good factor throughout the country by qualifying for France and it’s fantastic that local children affected by cancer will be benefiting from the sales of the team’s official ties. 

“I would like to thank Bogart for their generous support, and I know that local football fans will be looking for all sorts of ways to show their support for the team. They can be sure that by getting their hands on a limited edition tie, they will also be showing their support for hundreds of local families living with a cancer diagnosis.”         

It is now available to buy at Bogart’s two Belfast city centre stores and its Newry store – as well as online.
