Sport has always been a big passion for Philips. Not surprising really given that PSV Eindhoven was in fact originally founded in 1912 as a team for Philips employees. We have also been lucky enough to light some of the best know stadiums around the world, but we recognise that lighting alone doesn’t guarantee success. Managers play a big role too and that is why we are proud to be the sponsors of the Philips Lighting Sports Manager of the Year Awards.
The award is open to any Irish sports managers, trainers or coaches and overseas-born managers of Irish teams. Last year Ireland Manager Martin O’Neill and Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill jointly received the honour after a year which saw them both guide their sides to improbable qualification for Euro 2016.
