We are delighted to welcome the SDDE Smith Group Limited as Club Partners for the coming season. 

The Saltburn-based SDDE Smith Group, consisting of brands Host & Stay and Grey-Smith Legal, join as both an official Club Partner and our official Staycation Partner. 

The agreement includes sponsorship of Boro’s summer trip to Devon and Cornwall, a staple of manager Neil Warnock’s pre-season planning, plus our popular Inside Matchday feature released after every home and away game. Their branding, which appeared on banners at the Riverside Stadium in the 2020/21 campaign, will now be displayed on backdrops used for pre- and post-match interviews.

Host & Stay has a reputation built on quality experiences for both holiday makers and holiday home owners; offering 5* accommodation across North Yorkshire, the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland, the North East and South Wales, as well as a hands-free, hassle-free service for those looking to holiday let their property. 

Grey-Smith Legal are experts in Residential and Commercial Conveyancing, but are also available for Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Divorce and other independent legal advice.

The partnership is the latest step supporting the club for the SDDE Smith Group, who also have an Executive Box at the Riverside on matchdays and have contributed to charitable arm MFC Foundation with a ‘Friends of the Foundation’ package.  

Lee Fryett, MFC’s Head of Commercial, said: “We are delighted to welcome the SDDE Smith Group as Official Club Partners for the new season. Having taken the time to get to know Dale and the team we are incredibly excited to work with them to promote their range of services and look forward to helping them continue to grow their brand portfolio on a national scale. This is an exciting time for both the club and the SDDE Smith Group and we very much see this as just the start of a successful long term partnership.”

Dale Smith, CEO of SDDE Smith Group, said: “As lifelong fans of Middlesbrough Football Club we are extremely excited, and very proud to become official Club Partners, and we hope we can continue to grow our relationship with the club in the months and years ahead. We have seen our Host & Stay brand grow quickly in recent years, and our Grey-Smith Legal brand is gaining great traction since its launch in 2020. We know this partnership will only help to expedite the growth of these two brands, and it also comes at a time when the SDDE Smith Group is continuing to expand its real estate related brand portfolio.”
