The refurbished grandstand for Plymouth Argyle will be sponsored by Exeter-based betting company Sid Pallayfoor.

The club received several bids for the naming rights of the new grandstand at Home Park and the newly-formed local betting company won the race to sponsor the stand.

Construction is scheduled to start on refurbishing the grandstand in January 2018 and will have the distinctive red and white ‘Sid Pallayfoor of Exeter’ logo positioned across the front of the roof and be known as the Sid Pallayfoor Stand.

The betting company was formed last year by Exeter businessman Sid Pallayfoor to compete against the likes of BetFred, Stan James and William Hill in the lucrative on-line gambling market.

Sid Pallayfoor originally made his fortune with Ajoe Kits, supplying replica football shirts to the worldwide market.

Update: The club have postponed the announcement and will make a final decision of sponsorship of the grandstand on 1st April 2018.
