We are delighted to have signed-up to support our long-term partner Rotherham United Football Club, by becoming one of the club’s official Business Partners for the 2017/2018 season.
The agreement is one of a number of new and existing commercial partnerships which have been secured by the club during the close season, as the Millers’ portfolio of partners continues to expand.
Our support of the club further underlines our commitment to football at professional and grassroots levels.
We’ve just completed work on the first phase of Derby County Football Club’s new online platform and also have a close working relationship with the Rams.
As well as also supporting Rotherham over the years, we’ve worked on projects for the Derby County Community Trust, Nottingham Forest in the Community and Derbyshire County Cricket Club to name a few, and are closely involved with the youth teams at ADASC.
Matt Wheatcroft, our managing director, said: “We’ve worked closely with Rotherham United for a number of years, so are delighted to be able to extend our support for the forthcoming season by becoming a Business Partner.
“Purpose Media is passionate about supporting grass roots sport and Rotherham United is a fantastic club, with traditional values, which plays a key role in its local community, which is why we are pleased to be involved and wish the club every success for the season ahead.”
Rotherham’s Commercial Director, Steve Coakley, welcomed the deal as another important step for the commercial wing of the club.
He said: “We enjoy a fabulous working relationship with Purpose Media and this deal, which sees them ramp up there involvement to ‘Business Partner’ status, provides the partnership opportunity to work on some exciting new projects.
“We are thrilled to be associated with one of the fastest growing companies in their sector, and we feel that this is a partnership that will bring huge benefits to both parties.
“I have enjoyed working with Matt Wheatcroft and his colleagues over the last couple of years, and I look forward to seeing some of the results in the coming months.”
