Sheffield United success on and off the pitch as new sponsorship deal is announced


Sheffield United face Tottenham in Wednesday's Capital 1 Cup first leg semi-final - and the Blades Cup success on top of a good league run is attracting new sponsorship

The club has announced a new sponsorship deal with one of the city's oldest and most established companies.

The new partnership is with Chapeltown-based Presto, a supplier of cutting tool solutions across a wide range of industrial applications whose history stretches back to 1843.

The company's 170-year history sees it placed firmly in Sheffield's strong industrial heritage, and Blades' head of commercial Paul Reeves has described the tie-up as "another great local business partner" for the Club.

The new partnership will see the Presto logo feature on the training bibs of the first team.

John McDonald, operations director at Presto, said: "We are extremely proud and delighted to be working with Sheffield United, a club which is close to our hearts.

 "This is the first time that we have become commercial partners with a football club and we are really looking forward to working with the Blades and their supporters.

 "We hope that this is the start of a long-term relationship."
