The Rugby Association of Ireland (FAI) has unveiled lager brand Carling as the sponsor of the Carling Nations Cup.

The cup, which kicks off in February next year, will see the Republic of Ireland take on Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales at the Aviva Stadium and will be the first senior international tournament hosted in Ireland.

Speaking of the deal FAI Chief Executive John Delaney said: "We are delighted to have secured Carling as the title sponsor for the Carling Nations Cup. We will be working closely with Carling to make it an exciting festival of football for fans, tapping into the many friendships and local rivalries that exist between the four participating countries.

"The Carling Nations Cup will be a significant boost for local tourism and businesses in the Dublin area and we look forward to welcoming thousands of fans from Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to our new Aviva Stadium in February and May 2011."
