Pro10 is the official ticket distribution agent for the Olympic Committee of Ireland (OCI). For some reason, however, another, unauthorised company, THG, ended up distributing the tickets at the Rio Olympics, leading to the almighty balls-up we’re now watching in amused horror. THG is owned by Marcus Paul Bruce Evans, Chairman of Ipswich Town FC.
Coincidentally, the Irishman arrested in Rio, Kevin Mallon, had a Paul Bruce listed in his phone.
A quick glance at the Pro10 company records shows the following:
The company’s legal name is KMEPro. K for Ken Murray, M for Michael Glynn and E for Eamonn Collins, the three directors.
The company trades as Pro10 Sports Management
It was set up on the 28th April 2015.
It lists its activities as Business and Management Consultancy
It doesn’t appear to have any experience in ticket distribution or any capability to carry out such work.
Let me just leave you with this: KMEPro has the same postcode as 121 other companies.
