Cadbury and OTB Sports are joining forces on Women's football.
OTB Sports has signed a 12-month partnership with Cadbury to continue as title sponsor of the much-loved women's football podcast, The COYGIG Pod.
Kathleen McNamee and Karen Duggan will return to present season two of The COYGIG Pod. Their focus will not only be on Ireland's pursuit of a place in the World Cup in Australia later this year, but also on the Women's National League and the many Irish players making a big impact in the WSL.
You can assume that Leanne Kiernan will feature heavily.

The agreement will see Cadbury, an Official Partner of the Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team, sponsor The COYGIG Pod for 35 weeks, further strengthening their commitment to women’s football and complimenting OTB Sport’s own commitment to the coverage of women’s sport.
You can look forward to more interviews with Irish legends. Kathleen and Karen have already interviewed Ireland captain and Arsenal star Katie McCabe, former superstar goalkeeper Emma Byrne, the aforementioned Kiernan and manager Vera Pauw. There are plenty more big names to come!
Ger Gilroy, Managing Director of OTB Sports, commented on the announcement; “The COYGIG Pod was one of OTB’s breakout success stories of 2021 and we’re delighted that this partnership is continuing into 2022. The uptick in the national team’s performances has seen a surge in interest in the game, and it’s clear that there’s an appetite for the stories of the players, mentors, grassroots and beyond to be told weekly.
Kathleen, Karen and Emma are a brilliant team and the guestlist has been star studded. OTB Producer Catherine Murphy is at the reins as we look ahead to a potentially historic 12 months for women’s football in Ireland. Cadbury’s commitment to the sport mirrors ours and we’re excited by what’s coming next.”
Cadbury Brand Manager, Eileen Leahy, also commented:
“We are delighted to continue supporting The COYGIG Pod and to see it achieving such strong results. We feel the growth in listenership is not only down to the stellar team in OTB Sports who work tirelessly to produce such quality content, but that it also represents the growing interest and recognition for women’s football in Ireland.
Cadbury holds a long-standing relationship with OTB Sports through our Cadbury FC partnership, and we feel it was a natural progression to extend this into women’s football through The COYGIG Pod. As official partner of the Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team, our ambition is to raise awareness of the women’s game in Ireland and we have seen that the podcast is working extremely well in driving that awareness.”
