SAFC’s commercial director Gary Hutchinson, said: “Bidvest 3663 are a market leader in their field and offer a proven quality solution to all of our catering needs.
"As part of the Bidvest family we already have a synergy with them and as the club’s innovative approach to catering and events continues to grow we are looking forward to further developing what is already a great partnership.”
Norman Wemyss, Managing Director of Bidvest 3663 North, said: “Working with a partner who operates within such an exciting, dynamic, diverse and extremely rewarding environment such as top flight football, is a challenge that Bidvest 3663 love to embrace.
"We look forward to another four years of working with everyone at Sunderland AFC.”
