The two parties have signed an undisclosed three-year deal which will see JUST EAT’s company logo displayed on the front of the Rams' shirts starting from the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

JUST EAT operates the world’s largest online marketplace for ordering takeaway online, providing consumers with an easy and secure way to order food from thousands of local takeaway restaurants, online via desktop, tablet, mobile or app.
Derby’s relationship with JUST EAT will include a wide range of activity including experiential stunts during matchdays, joint activity on the Rams and JUST EAT’s social media channels, plus sponsorship of a specific Derby County Community Trust Project.
Derby County’s President & Chief Executive Sam Rush said: “We are delighted to have an international brand of JUST EAT’s stature becoming our shirt sponsor for the next three seasons.
Graham Corfield, UK Managing Director of JUST EAT, said: “This announcement is our first significant venture into sports sponsorship and signifies an exciting new partnership for the brand. We’re hugely thrilled to be sponsoring Derby County Football Club at such a promising time in the club’s history.
“There’s a real synergy between live sport and takeaway food and we think we have a lot to offer as a brand in the football world. We can’t wait for next season to kick-off and will be cheering the Rams on throughout the Play-Offs too.”
JUST EAT will replace BuyMobiles.net after four years as Derby’s main shirt sponsor.
The ‘handing over of the baton’ as Derby’s main shirt sponsor will take place on the iPro Stadium pitch at half-time during the Rams’ Play-Off Semi Final Second Leg clash against Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club on Sunday 11th May.
