Wildcats and Huskers Cheerleaders Fly Aer Lingus

#Traveltradetogether

#TRAVELTRADETOGETHER

The two teams, cheerleaders and accompanying band flew with Aer Lingus for last weekends Aer Lingus College Football Classic between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Northwest Wildcats. Aer Lingus were title sponsor of this amazing event which delivered all the true American Razzmatazz and more to our capital city.

On game day, some 230 football players, 146 band members and 32 cheerleaders took to the field and the event kicked off in style a series of college football games coming to Dublin over the coming years. This will have a really positive impact on travel and tourism and the wider economy in Ireland, as fans of both US colleges are expected to travel to Ireland in their thousands to cheer on their teams over the next five years.

The game represents the biggest inbound international event in Ireland since 2019 with 13,000 US fans and 3,000 European fans arriving in Dublin to be part of the big game, which is worth an estimated €63 million to the Irish economy.
