Sheffield United are delighted to announce plans to develop a retail offering at Meadowhall Shopping Centre, which will open in time for Christmas trading.
The Blades have seen success both on and off the pitch securing promotion to the Premier League from League One in just three years. This new retail opportunity will afford new and existing fans greater access to a wide range of Blades merchandise.
United's head of retail, Lisa Crossland, said: "The new store will be located in the Gallery, just off the Meadowhall High Street, and will stock Sheffield United club merchandise, including home and away replica kits, a great collection of branded fashion, training wear, as well as a comprehensive range of gifts and souvenirs.'
Ever since it opened in 1990 on the site of a former steelworks, Meadowhall has grown to be one of the top five UK retail destinations. The centre has recently had a £60million refurbishment and attracts over 25 million visitors annually.
United's head of commercial, Paul Reeves, added: "We are delighted to be extending our retail operation to Meadowhall, as the club continues to invest in its retail infrastructure".
This will be the clubs first venture into Meadowhall in a bid to make our retail offering more widely available to supporters across the city.
The opening of the store will also provide multiple job opportunities from retail assistant through to assistant manager positions. For those interested in joining the Sheffield United staff team. Click here to view the available vacancies.
