Key role for Blade Martin

13 August 2015

The Club would like to congratulate Martin Green, a Vice-President at Bramall Lane and founder and Managing Director of Redtooth, on his appointment as a Director of Sheffield United Limited (SUL), which owns 50 per cent of Sheffield United Football Club.

A lifelong Blade, Martin has recently played a key role in the Club's developing event activities, with the remit of driving revenue from the new and improved facilities at Bramall Lane, including a new Desso pitch, the Academy at Shirecliffe and at the Club's Crookes facility.

Co-owner Kevin McCabe said: "We are delighted that Martin has accepted our offer to join the board of SUL.

"He has a great track record in the world of leisure and entertainment as well as organising events where last year he led the organisation of the Club's 125th high profile celebration dinner at Ponds Forge which attracted more than 1,200 people and guests and former players, and was recognised as one of the best events of its kind.

"Martin's creative abilities will bring much needed change to what and how we do things, making the best use of our superb facilities," added Kevin.

Martin said: "As a Blade since 1972 I am delighted to take up this opportunity to make a real difference to United. There is terrific potential to take the Club to a different level in terms of events here at Bramall Lane as well as Shirecliffe and Crookes.

"I will be working with the Club's executive team, directors and owners to drive forward a new era at Bramall Lane."

Martin, 51, is founder and managing director of national company Redtooth, the leading supplier of entertainment for the pub industry across the UK.

Redtooth organises the nation's largest pub poker league, which has more than 1,000 venues and 185,000 players registered, is the leading supplier of pub quizzes to the UK pub market with over 3,000 pubs and clubs receiving its weekly quiz and is involved in many events which feature some of Britain's best-known quizzers including Mark Labbett (the Beast from The Chase who is managed by Redtooth) as well as other familiar faces from The Chase and Eggheads. Other events include the British Pub Awards and 100 years of Magic at the London Palladium.​
