Munster have appointed Ian Flanagan to the position of Munster Rugby CEO.

The Cork native will start the role in mid-October and joins the province from Treble Group, where he has held the position of Global Head of Football since 2016.

Flanagan also held the position of Commercial Director with Leicester City Football Club between 2012 and 2016, during which time the Foxes won the Premier League.

Flanagan told Munster Rugby: “As a proud Cork man I have always been a supporter, and felt a strong connection with Munster Rugby. I understand that it’s a unique club with a very special history and place in the hearts of Munster people.

“It is an absolute honour to come back home to Munster to take on the challenge of leading the province forward. I have worked with many world-class sports organisations throughout my career, and I hope to bring that experience to help Munster move forward to even greater success.

“I want to pay tribute to my predecessor Garrett Fitzgerald and to Philip Quinn. Thanks to them, all the fundamentals are in place. Munster Rugby has a world-class coaching team, an exciting squad of players, fantastic facilities and a flourishing grassroots game at club and schools level.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to help drive continued success on and off the pitch.”
