Scunthorpe United’s new stadium will be built using homemade steel after the Iron forged a new partnership with British Steel, which is based at the Town's steelworks.

The Scunthorpe plant was sold to investment company Greybull Capital last month by Tata Steel.

The agreement will also see British Steel’s new brand appear on the League One club’s kit for the 2016-2017 season.

We’re delighted steel made in Scunthorpe will be used in the Iron’s new stadium. It promises to be one of the finest grounds in the Football League and it makes perfect sense that we join forces on this project.
