John Holland announced as new Blades sponsor

John Holland are very excited to announce that we are the new sponsors of Sheffield United FC for the 2014/15 season.

Sheffield United, or ‘The Blades’, were formed in 1889 as an off shoot of Sheffield United Cricket Club.

Their home, Bramall Lane, is the oldest recorded football league stadium, with the nickname of the ‘Blades’ paying homage to the history of Sheffield’s steel production.

The club has a proud and successful history with league titles to their name and winners of the FA cup on four separate occasions.

As a founder member they were the first team to score a goal in the Premiership, the biggest and best supported league in the world, in its inaugural season.

Tony Entwistle, general manager, commented: “This is a great achievement for John Holland Sales and shows our support to a local football team whose presence is renowned around the world.”

“Without doubt we will be doing all we can to support the club in the very best way possible, and the sponsorship further re affirms our beliefs in local support for local people.”
