Which are the cities where most Newcastle shirts are sold?
Figures just released by our glorious owner’s Sports Direct, show that it is not Mr.Ashley’s shops within a stroll of St. James’ Park that sell the most Newcastle shirts.
Instead it is the London branches of SD that sell the most NUFC replica shirts, with stores in the capital selling almost a third of the entire Newcastle United SD sales, the city of Newcastle coming in second with almost 21% of sales.
However, despite Mike Ashley closing down various Newcastle United club shops, there is still the one at the ground that competes with his SD stores, so overall more shirts will be sold in Newcastle in total than anywhere else.
The biggest tragedy of course is that so many fans are so fed up with Ashley’s running of the club that they even refuse to buy the replica shirts, with Wonga’s presence hardly helping either.
Long gone are the days of yore when Adidas produced classic Newcastle United shirts and there were queues around the block when a new design appeared.
