Westfield Health announces continued support for Sheffield football clubs.
Westfield Health has announced extended partnerships with two South Yorkshire football clubs in order to further champion health and wellbeing in the region.
The sports sponsorship initiative will see us work more closely than ever before with both Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday, using the popularity of, and interest in, ‘the beautiful game’ to help encourage people to live healthier lifestyles.
With the Blades, we will continue our sponsorship of the Bramall Lane Corner Stand as well as the John Street enclosure for disabled people. With the Owls, we will continue as the Official Disabled Enclosure Partner.
Our Executive Director - Sales and Marketing, Paul Shires, said: “We’re delighted to extend our partnerships with both Sheffield clubs.
“Westfield Health has a proud history in this region, and we’re excited to continue our support which will allow us to engage with fans, the public and organisations to help encourage more people to lead a healthier lifestyle.
“Whether through encouraging children to get into sport or helping fans to make healthy lifestyle choices, these partnerships provide a great number of opportunities for us to support the health and wellbeing of our local community.
“We’re really looking forward to partnering with each of the clubs during the forthcoming season."
Sheffield Wednesday’s Chief Operating Officer Paul Bell said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Westfield Health for a further season.
“Westfield Health is one of the most high profile health insurance providers in the UK and our relationship has grown from strength to strength.
“The new agreement will see the Westfield Health brand visible inside the stadium and across more of the club’s marketing platforms than ever before.”
Sheffield United Head of Commercial Paul Reeves said: “Westfield Health has been one of the Club’s longest serving sponsors and the extension of its sponsorship of the Westfield Health Stand shows great continued commitment to the Football Club.
“This new agreement is very much aimed at the interaction with our supporters and delivering a health and wellbeing agenda through our own Community Foundation.”
Mark Todd, Head of Community, Sheffield United Community Foundation, said: “The Foundation is delighted to be given the opportunity to complement this new sponsorship agreement by working in partnership with Westfield Health. As trusted providers, both organisations share a passion for improving the health and wellbeing of the people of Sheffield.”
