“We are extremely proud to confirm a partnership with a football club of this stature and look forward to seeing the results of these two major sporting brands unite moving forward.”
The Owls’ head of retail Peter Pridmore, added: “We are delighted to confirm this affiliation with Sondico, who for many years have been a recognised and respected brand within football.
“Over the last few years in particular, the company have dramatically increased their provision of football-related merchandise, producing replica kit and training wear for a number of professional clubs.
“Sondico are one of the fastest growing brands within the football sector and forecast to be a major player within the market as they develop and enhance their broad range of products.
“Sheffield Wednesday will be viewed as their flagship club for 2014/15 and we are all excited about the bespoke range of designs Sondico will present and provide at Hillsborough.”
