Heineken sponsors Galpharm Stadium

Kirklees Stadium Development Ltd (KSDL), owners of the Galpharm Stadium in Huddersfield, UK, have entered into a five-year partnership with Heineken, which will see the sports and conference venue renamed as ‘The John Smith’s Stadium’.

The West Yorkshire stadium, which is the home of newly promoted Huddersfield Town Football Club and Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Club, is one of the region’s leading sporting, leisure and music venues. It boasts impressive facilities, including a variety of business and conference suites, community health and leisure centre, 30 bay golf driving range, nine screen cinema, coffee shop, restaurant and bar facilities.

“The partnership represents the culmination of conversations over more than six months,” says Gareth Davies, managing director of KSDL. “Not only is this the highest profile commercial partnership that KSDL has, we have secured a truly blue chip company, with a very well known brand, readily recognised by consumers nationwide. John Smith’s is also a very appropriate partner for the sporting, and conference and banqueting activities that are the mainstay of the stadium.

“Our relationship with KSDL has gone from strength to strength since we became the stadium’s exclusive beer and cider suppliers and sponsors of the South Stand in November 2011, adds Richard Sandland, regional sales director at Heineken. “The multi-purpose John Smith’s Stadium will present an excellent showcase, not only for John Smith’s, but also for many other Heineken beer and cider brands, including Foster’s, Heineken, Strongbow and Bulmers cider. Under the terms of the new agreement we will also benefit from stadium advertising together with customer hospitality facilities at major sport and music events hosted in the stadium.”
