Sheffield United’s CEO, Stephen Bettis, said: “We are really excited to have USG on board as we begin our journey back in the Premier League. Having an international sponsor on board shows just how far the club has come both on and off the pitch”

Confirmation of the partnership took place at a media conference at Bramall Lane, attended by representatives of USG, United’s co-owner Kevin McCabe, manager Chris Wilder and captain Billy Sharp.
