By Community | May 15, 2014

English Championship Play-Off finalist Derby County has announced JUST EAT, hospital the world’s leading online takeaway ordering service, price as their new main shirt sponsor.

The two parties have signed an undisclosed three-year deal which will see JUST EAT’s company logo displayed on the front of the Rams’ shirts starting from the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

Derby’s relationship with JUST EAT will include a wide range of activity including experiential stunts during matchdays, joint activity on the Rams and JUST EAT’s social media channels, plus sponsorship of a specific Derby County Community Trust Project.

Derby County’s President & Chief Executive Sam Rush said: “We are delighted to have an international brand of JUST EAT’s stature becoming our shirt sponsor for the next three seasons.

“The deal is a reflection of the progress we have made as a Club in recent times and we’re looking forward to working closely with JUST EAT in the months and years ahead.

“There are plenty of benefits for our fans within the sponsorship agreement as well and we’re pleased to have JUST EAT on board with us.”

Graham Corfield, UK Managing Director of JUST EAT, said: “This announcement is our first significant venture into sports sponsorship and signifies an exciting new partnership for the brand. We’re hugely thrilled to be sponsoring Derby County Football Club at such a promising time in the club’s history.

“There’s a real synergy between live sport and takeaway food and we think we have a lot to offer as a brand in the football world. We can’t wait for next season to kick-off and will be cheering the Rams on in the Play-Off Final.”

JUST EAT will replace after four years as Derby’s main shirt sponsor. Managing Director and founder Paul Sisson is a life-long Derby County fan and he will remain a corporate client at the iPro Stadium, with retaining a Proud Partner status.
