Manchester United Class of ’92 owned Salford City announces shirt sponsorship deal

July 4, 2017

Free-to-play prediction game Soccer Saturday Super 6 has struck a new long-term deal to become the shirt sponsor of Salford City FC.

The National League North club has emjoyed a rapid rise since being taken over by several members of Manchester United’s ‘Class of ’92’ – including Ryan GiggsGary Neville and Nicky Butt – at the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

The club, which recently announced that all players and management are to go full-time, narrowly missed out on promotion into the National League last season after a play-off defeat to Halifax Town.

Prior to that, they had achieved back-to-back promotions since being taken over by the Old Trafford legends.

Super 6, fronted by Soccer Saturday’s Jeff Stelling, is a weekly prediction game that runs throughout the football season where players must correctly guess six football scores to win a £250,000 jackpot prize.

The deal marks a new landmark in the rapid rise of the Salford club, as they strive for a place in the Sky Bet EFL.

Co-owner and former United captain Gary Neville said about the deal: “It’s fantastic for the club. A few years ago when we came into Salford we recognised we wanted to try and align ourselves with fantastic partners and everyone knows Super 6, they’re very prominent on the Soccer Saturday show we all love.

“It’s great that we’re able to put this long-term partnership together.”

Salford City chairman Karen Baird said: “The sponsorship is a massive deal for our level, for such a big company to get involved with us is brilliant. For the last few years, we’ve had local sponsors, but Super 6 is a great fit, as a well-known company established within the footballing industry.

“The sponsorship has already allowed us to continue to grow and bring in a better level of players ahead of the new season and beyond.”

Super 6 spokesman Edwin Martin said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be linking up with Salford City at such an important part of their journey. The club has been going from strength to strength on and off the pitch with their vision and ambition being a big attraction for us as a new sponsor.

“We are looking forward to a long and successful relationship between Super 6 and Salford City.”
