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."

"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."
