News: Morrison becomes Rotherham United's third signing at the New York Stadium


Rotherham United has secured a third major sponsor for the New York Stadium, with repairs and maintenance service provider, Morrison, signing a three year deal to sponsor the south community stand.

The deal means Morrison joins Ben Bennett, Eric Twigg Foods and Pukka Pies in committing their name to the £20m stadium, which is under construction on the former Guest and Chrimes factory site, in an area known historically as New York, close to the town centre.

The 12,000 seater stadium is set to be completed this July and the Community stand has seating for 2,755 fans, a disabled seating area and special polycarbonate on the roof edges to allow light onto the pitch.

Andy Wilson, account director at Morrison Rotherham, said: "We are very proud to be announcing our sponsorship of the Community stand; for us it not only marks our support for this great local club but also the wider Rotherham community, which will be brought together by the stadium.

"Everyone at Morrison is looking forward to seeing the completed stadium and having the Millers back in Rotherham."

Steve Lewis, head of commercial at Rotherham United, added: "Morrison is a key community partner for Rotherham United so it is fitting they have chosen to sponsor the south stand at the New York Stadium.

"They are one of several partners who have backed the Millers' community projects and their support has been pivotal to us being nominated for Community Club of the Year. Now, thanks to partners like Morrison, we can deliver our community projects from a brand new state-of-the-art stadium facility, which will continue to benefit the community.

"We are delighted to have them on board and to be extending our partnership with the company at this historic time for Rotherham United. In this new era for the club, we look forward to working together to enjoy an exciting and successful future."

Morrison began a £60.5m contract to maintain council properties in 2010. The five and a half year deal, with four possible one-year extensions, is to repair and maintain 13,000 properties in Rotherham North, Rotherham South and Wentworth North.
