This investment will support our long-term plans to thrive in the Scottish Premiership and also enhance the supporters’ matchday experience, improve the stadium facilities and invest in the infrastructure that helps maintain our stadium.”

Concluded Stevie and Grant from CalForth Construction, “Since the business launched, we have been passionate about building our company name by supporting both the amateur and the professional organizations in the local area. We had the opportunity over the 2023-2024 seasons to become involved at Dundee United, taking out sponsorship boards in the stadium and being invited to events throughout the season. We became Platinum Members of Business United and have enjoyed learning more about how the club operates, meeting those within the organization and also being introduced to many of the people and businesses that support the Dundee United. It was through these connections that the opportunity to become involved as a Principal Partner and the naming rights for the stadium were put to us. As two fans of the club, we recognized the significance of being the first company to attribute its name to such a historical stadium. It will always be Tannadice, not only to the fans, but to us as well. We are proud of the business we have built and honored to be able to see our name in connection with the club and the stadium. Our investment stretches further than a financial commitment. We plan to bring our expertise and drive to help improve the stadium and enhance the experience for the supporters and the staff for years to come.”
