We are proud to announce that the City of Derry Airport will be the principle sponsor for 2019 Northern Ireland Judo Open.

Situated just up the road from the Foyle Arena where the event is staged, the airport is located perfectly for anyone flying in from England, Scotland or Wales and even beyond!

The NI Open is gaining momentum at the moment and a substantial amount of early interest is coming in for the Open which is shaping up to be a showcase for Judo and the province!

The event will act as a springboard for further activities as the NI Judo Federation will be working with Derry and Strabane council on their Youth19 project to get more young people on the mats and into the dojos after the competition finishes.

Mark Donald, Commercial and Marketing Manager for NI Judo Federation said:

“It’s fantastic that a high profile sponsor such as the City of Derry Airport is partnering with our Open and shows that Judo is starting to have a big impact in Northern Ireland. With so many people coming from many different areas it’s great to have the means of travel so close to the Foyle Arena and we’re looking forward to the 6th and 7th of April even more now and welcoming everyone to the competition!”
