Sheffield sports bar celebrates first birthday and looks for more grassroots teams to sponsor
A clutch of up-and-coming local sports teams have been getting a leg up from Sheffield’s only American sports and dive bar as it celebrates its first birthday.
West Street’s FirePit Rocks are sponsoring the Steel Kings, Sutton Sting, the Sheffield Bears and are on the look out for other local grassroots teams to partner.
The bar is committed to showing as much live sport as possible – it boasts seven screens which includes a large projector screen – as the new Premiership football season kicks off and is keen to champion the city’s up and coming sporting stars.
A rising star of the city’s boxing world delivered the knock out punch to ensure FirePit Rocks celebrated its first birthday in true style.
Tommy Frank – the recently crowned Commonwealth Superflyweight Champion – topped a guestlist that included members of the Sheffield Steelers, MTV stars and the chief executive of Skateboard England, James Hope-Gill.
FirePit Rocks owner Rick Bailey said: “We are totally sports and music obsessed. Customers can book booths for all events including football, boxing and UFC with food and drink packages available.
“We are very committed to backing Sheffield teams and it has been an honour to be involved with so many so far.”
