Who are Newcastle United’s new Premier League sponsors?
Thankfully Wonga have been decimated as a company, largely thanks to stricter rules on the way legal loan sharks like them operate, which meant there was no chance of them renewing their NUFC sponsorship deal this summer.
With Newcastle United’s Premier League fate confirmed 11 days ago, it gave the club the green light to conclude an arrangement based on being a top tier club and the worldwide coverage that entails.
As well as the amount of money any deal would bring into the club, the hope for many fans was that the new sponsor would be a blue chip recognisable company, with no similar negativity as Wonga attached.
It was the Chronicle who broke the story and they announced:
‘Newcastle United finalise a new sponsorship deal with Chinese firm – here are the details’
Well, the details they give are….not how long the deal is for, how much they are paying , or even who the new sponsor actually is!
What they do tell punters is that ‘it is believed that the Chinese investors (sponsors) are an online betting firm’.
They go on to say that they understand ‘details’ will be revealed by the club next week.
