Sheffield United has a new sponsor, local estate agency Redbrik.
They are wanting to have the club’s main stand named after it – although it currently has the name of local Olympic sporting hero Jessica Ennis-Hill.
Redbrik has finalised a three year deal to sponsor the Bramall Lane stand at the Club’s ground and follows the recent appointment of new manager Nigel Adkins.
The fast-growing agency has made significant roads into the Sheffield property market since being launched two years ago by its founders Mark Ross and Julie Bulheller.
The rest of the senior team is completed by director Michael Parry, who heads up the Millhouses office, and Peter Lee who oversees the Crystal Peak operation.
Jessica Ennis-Hill wrote a post on the club’s website saying “it was a real honour to have had the Bramall Lane stand named after me in 2012 in recognition of my Olympic achievements. However, I completely understand the need for Sheffield United to recognise the valuable contributions of its sponsors and want to wish the club and the team all the best for the forthcoming season.”
Redbrik was launched in Glumangate, at the core of Chesterfield two years ago, opening a second branch in Sheffield and have just recently celebrated the opening of a third branch at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre.
