Chairman fears “lots of negativity” as he shares latest on stadium redevelopment

Last week Wakefield Trinity announced a new major sponsorship deal which comes as the club’s takeover due diligence continues.

As due diligence is progressing in respect of the proposed acquisition of the club by Matthew Ellis, Wakefield Trinity announced a major new sponsorship deal with DIY Kitchens – Ellis’ company.

The club also welcomed Matthew to their Advisory Board during this intervening period. This board provides invaluable work for the club largely behind the scenes, and Matthew will add to these efforts particularly in the areas of fan engagement and player recruitment. Both this appointment, and the experience gained by Matthew from working with the existing team, will help to ensure a smooth transition over to his ownership should the due diligence process reach a satisfactory conclusion in the coming weeks.

Matt’s company DIY Kitchens has agreed to a very substantial sponsorship deal which will add fire power to our ongoing recruitment and retention efforts.

Though Wakefield have been struggling in the pitch it seems things are on the up off the field especially with their stadium development.

Chairman John Minards shared the latest of the stand development but feared “lot of negativity.”
