A perfect pitch - Law firm continues Leeds United sponsorship


For the second year running, Simpson Millar LLP has backed Leeds United Football Club - extending its sponsorship with the Whites for the 2013-2014 season.

The firm, which operates 11 national offices from its headquarters in Leeds, is led by life-long fan Peter Watson. Simpson Millar LLP’s Managing Partner says he’s glad to be on board having supported the club through some pretty dark days.

Peter commented: “The city and the club are on the up as demonstrated by United's latest poster campaign and messages across Leeds; everyone is looking forward to a new era with new owners and an experienced manager in Brian McDermott. I can really feel the excitement about this season building, so we’ll be ‘Marching on Together’ with the club at Elland Road and looking forward to success on the field after a good few years in the wilderness.”


Following a handshake and photo call with the new United boss at the first home game of the season against Brighton, Peter admitted to the possibility of a job swap without anyone noticing.

“There is something of a resemblance,” said Peter. “But I wouldn’t handle the pressure of the dug-out like Brian can. He’s ice cool and a real gentleman so we’re in excellent hands with Mr McDermott at the helm.”

The sponsorship of LUFC is seen as an excellent opportunity for Simpson Millar LLP to connect with some of its core customer base for which it provides personal legal services ranging from wills and conveyancing to personal injury and family law advice. The arrangement also continues a tradition of sports sponsorship, with Doncaster Racecourse another of its long-term strategic partners.

As part of the deal, Simpson Millar LLP will feature extensively on the pitchside advertising hoardings, as well as on the very popular Leeds United website.
