RUFC - New stadium get first sponsors

Rotherham United's new West Stand will be sponsored by Eric Twigg Foods in a deal that will see the Pukka Pies brand above the new stand for at least three years.

Rotherham United and Eric Twigg Foods have a thirty-year association and speaking to the Official Site, Managing Director, Matthew Twigg said, 'My father, our chairman, has always been a massive Rotherham United fan and I followed in his footsteps, so we are delighted to be the first major sponsors of the new stadium.

'As we enter a new exciting time in the clubs history, we are delighted to be extending our association long into the future. I think it is fair to say that having a Pukka Pie has become part of the tradition of attending a Rotherham United game, and a lot of thanks have to go to the Millers fans for making that happen.'

Steve Lewis, Head of Commercial with the Millers said, 'Today is a great day for the club and for Rotherham. Eric and Matthew Twigg have been long standing supporters of the club with the Pukka Pie brand, and this sponsorship highlights that. The new stadium will bring life into the town and Eric Twigg Foods have captured this, by seizing this sponsorship opportunity.'
