SSB Group inks Rotherham United Whitehill Women kit sponsorship deal

Sheffield-based legal and financial services company SSB Group has signed a shirt sponsorship deal with Rotherham United Whitehill Women.

The deal, covering the first and U18s teams for the 2022/23 season, demonstrates SSB Group’s ongoing commitment to supporting grassroots sports in the South Yorkshire area.

Chief executive officer Jeremy Brooke said of the sponsorship: “SSB Group is passionate about South Yorkshire, so we are delighted to support and look forward to seeing Rotherham United Whitehill Women going from strength to strength at what is a very exciting time for women’s football.”

The first team will be playing just its third season in senior football and boasts a young team with an average age of 19.

Playing in Division 1 of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Sunday League, the first team has enjoyed much success over the last two seasons, winning every game on the way to the Division 3 title in its first campaign and finishing mid-table in Division 1 last season.

The team also reached the quarter-finals of the league cup in its first season and the semi-finals last season.

Both the first team and the U18s play their home games at Phoenix Pavilion in Brinsworth.

First team manager Dave Horner said of the deal: “We are proud to wear the logo of such a prestigious sponsor on our training shirts, home shirts and match day jackets and hope this is the start of a long-lasting relationship. SSB Group’s support of grassroots football will enable us to continue to develop as a club and will support our rise up the league.”
