Global shipping and logistics company GAC has renewed its sponsorship deal with professional English football club Sheffield United F.C.

Since forming links with Sheffield United F.C - nicknamed ‘The Blades due to Sheffield’s worldwide reputation for steel production - in 2009, GAC went on to become the club’s Official Logistics Partner 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.”

“Wherever you go, you will find GAC people striving for excellence in everything they do, driven by a sense of urgency and a desire to meet customers’ every service need. That combination of the personal touch with fierce professional pride is our corporate signature,” he added. “These values are shared by all at Sheffield United and we look forward to our prosperous relationship going from strength to strength over the coming season.”

GAC is one of the world’s leading independent suppliers of logistics, shipping, marine and related services, giving multinational businesses a single, experienced source for all their shipping and transport requirements.

Sheffield United’s 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.”
