'The Blades' is the nickname of UK soccer team Sheffield United, & logistics provider GAC has renewed sponsorship of the club.

Since forming links with the Blades in 2009 GAC went on to become the Official Logistics Partner of Sheffield United Football Club and followed that by sponsoring the South Stand of its stadium in Bramall Lane.

Group Sales Director at GAC, Gurumurthi Shankar, expressed his delight at continuing the relationship saying: "We value long-term relationships with business partners, customers, suppliers and our own staff, and are extremely happy to have extended our current deal with the Blades."

The Blades’ Commercial Director, Steve Coakley, talked about the importance of the ongoing relationship between GAC and the Blades. "It is great news that GAC has decided to extend their current deal with the Blades."

"We are passionate about working with forward thinking organisations that share our commitment to providing a quality service for our customers. Obviously that service is intrinsically linked to how the team perform and we are all looking forward to a successful season both on and off the pitch."
