Owls strike Kop deal

21 August 2012


Sheffield Wednesday are delighted to confirm a brand new three-year Kop Stand sponsorship deal with law firm Hill Dickinson. 

The partnership with the Owls is the latest in a series of Hill Dickinson’s commitments to Sheffield’s thriving cultural scene.
 
The firm will use the profile-building partnership to promote its broad range of legal expertise to the regional audience, whilst also entertaining clients utilising the club’s hospitality suites.
 
Hill Dickinson, based at The Balance on Pinfold Street, has embraced Sheffield city life with a number of partnerships adopted across the city this year.
 
Commenting on the announcement, Head of Hill Dickinson’s Sheffield office, Neil Thompson said: “We are continuing to establish ourselves as the full service law firm of choice here in Sheffield and, in doing so are committed to supporting the fabric of the city, in terms of the arts, sports and the community.
 
“Hill Dickinson is an international firm but we are very regionally focused and are proud of the cities in which we are based. Many of our team members come from Sheffield and we are passionate about the city’s sporting heritage and world class arts scene. This latest sports sponsorship complements our existing support for emerging artists via Crucible Theatre’s New Writing programme.”
 
Hill Dickinson has also supported St Luke’s Hospice via the Biz Kids Challenge, a pioneering project which sees Sheffield school pupils utilising their business and entrepreneurial skills to raise money for charity. The Sheffield office is staging a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year, in aid of St Luke’s, its nominated charity for 2012.
 
Andy Daykin, Sheffield Wednesday’s Commercial Director, added:  “We could not be more delighted to have the backing of Hill Dickinson.  Sheffield Wednesday FC is proud of its association with the city’s business sector and the community at large.  We have seen from the Olympic Games how important sport is to the nation but it doesn’t just happen and clubs rely on the support of businesses such as Hill Dickinson to progress and deliver the ever-improving standards our community desires and deserves.”
