New deal for John Smith’s Stadium

Huddersfield Giants John Smith's Stadium

It’s going to be the John Smith’s Stadium for another five years – after brewer Heineken signed a deal to extend its sponsorship of Huddersfield’s premier sporting venue.

Heineken, the world’s third-largest brewer and the UK’s leading beer and cider producer, has extended its partnership with Kirklees Stadium Development Company (KSDL) until 2021. It has been the stadium’s naming rights partner since 2012. The original deal was due to end next summer.

Elsewhere, Huddersfield Giants playmaker Danny Brough has returned to full training after an extended break due to his Four Nations exploits with Scotland.
