Rotherham United and Eric Twigg Foods have clinched a new extended deal which will see the long standing club partner’s name remain over West Stand at AESSEAL New York Stadium until the end of 2019/2020 campaign.
The agreement will take Eric Twigg Foods and Pukka Pies association with the Millers to a 40 year milestone, after the local company first started supplying pies and confectionary in 1980.
On the signing of the extended deal, Rotherham United’s Commercial Director Steve Coakley said: “Eric Twigg Foods are a company that has become synonymous with the club, and we are proud that we will be celebrating 40 years of working together - that really is quite something and should be celebrated by everyone that has contributed to the success of that over the years, none more so than Eric and Matthew themselves."
“They were the first business to commit their name here at AESSEAL New York Stadium, and we are thrilled that they have chosen to further extend their association with the club.
“Eric Twigg Foods now enjoy a strong association within the football industry, and they remain as popular now with our supporters as they did in the early days back in the 1980s.
“I have personally enjoyed working with both Eric and Matt over a number of years, and it is a friendship that continues to go from strength-to-strength.”
Matthew Twigg, Managing Director of Eric Twigg Foods added: “We have enjoyed a long and successful association with Rotherham United, a football club we have supported both commercially and as fans on the terraces.
“We would like to thank our fellow supporters for embracing our business as well as the Pukka Pie products over the decades. We are looking forward to many more enjoyable years working with, and supporting, Rotherham United.”
The news follows the recent announcement that Puma have extended their kit supply deal with the club, with more commercial announcements planned during the next few weeks.
