A Sligo businessman has been awarded a contract to lay pitches for leading Spanish football clubs.
Support in Sport owned by Sligo native George Mullan will lay a state of the art training pitch at the Nou Camp, Spain that will provide the base for the cream of world players including Messi, Xavi and Iniesta.
The company has already installed surfaces for Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilboa.
Sligo-born Mullan believes the latest contract wins will help keep the company on target to secure sales of some €33 million this year.
According to The Irish Times, the group, of which Mullan is almost sole owner and which employs 80 people full-time, has offices in Ireland, Britain, the Netherlands, Turkey, Angola, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
