Corporate Hospitality Cancelled Due To Wonga

9 years ago

A local company has withdrawn their planned corporate hospitality at Newcastle United following the sponsorship deal with Wonga. have cancelled their booking for the Newcastle United v Manchester City fisture and shifted it to the reverse fixture at the Etihad scheduled for the 30th March next year.

The company’s managing director, Glenn Morrill, is a lifelong Newcastle fan and has expressed his, “extreme disappointment”, that the club he loves has signed a deal with such a firm. have further stated;

‘We remain steadfast in our position and will not conduct business with the club whilst Wonga are involved. We plan to develop the service next year to assist in educating people on managing their finances so they can stay away from payday lenders, so any affiliation with Wonga, however tenuous, made our hospitality with Newcastle United untenable’.

Incidentally, the company were using the corporate hospitality to promote their business to fans and are giving away four pairs of tickets for sample corporate hospitality and you can enter here to stand a chance of winning a pair (plus cash) for that Manchester City v Newcastle United match next March.
