Virgin Money Is New Newcastle United Shirt Sponsor


Here’s Steven Taylor showing Newcastle’s new shirt with the Virgin Money logo on it.



Virgin Money is indeed the new shirt sponsor for Newcastle,  and it looks like the deal is for an initial two years, but the financial details have not been announced.

The Tyneside  club issued this statement this afternoon on their web-site:

Newcastle United are delighted to announce a new shirt sponsorship deal with Virgin Money.

The two parties have agreed a two-year deal which follows a long standing relationship between Northern Rock and Newcastle United.

(Virgin Money completed the acquisition of Northern Rock plc on 1 Jan 2012.)

The club will unveil the new strip this evening with Newcastle United taking on Manchester United in the Premier League.

The Virgin Money logo will be used on team shirts for the remainder of the 2011-12 season under the current sponsorship arrangements.

Newcastle United Managing Director Derek Llambias had this to say:

“We’re delighted to secure this new deal with Virgin Money and we look forward to enjoying a mutually beneficial partnership over the coming seasons.”

“It is an excellent deal for both parties and we’re very happy to have them on board.”

And Jayne-Anne Gadhia, Chief Executive at Virgin Money said:

“Now that Virgin Money and Northern Rock are united as one business, it gives us great pleasure to continue the shirt sponsorship of Newcastle United Football Club. “

“The Northern Rock sponsorship started in 2003 and it is an important link to the North-East which we are pleased to continue.”

“Combined with our sponsorship of the Virgin London Marathon and the Edinburgh Festival ‘Fringe on the high street’, the shirt sponsorship of Newcastle United Football Club embeds our involvement in the communities we serve.”

“The first 10,000 supporters with 2011/12 season shirts that bring them to the Club shop will receive a free Virgin Money update to their shirt. Availability of this new branding will be posted on the club website but is expected at the end of the week.”

That’s a nice gesture that the first 10,000 fans will get the new shirt free of charge – so get to those club shops quickly.

Well it seems at last under Mike Ashley that Newcastle are in the money.

Or maybe not, but the lads will definitely  be wearing the shirt for tonight’s game against Manchester United, which kicks off in about an hour.

The last deal with Northern Rock was very poor from Newcastle’s viewpoint, being only £2.5M a  year, so we hope this deal is for a lot more than that.

We need a win tonight in the new shirts!

Howay The Lads!!

    Krul, Simpson, Coloccini, Williamson, Santon, R Taylor, Cabaye, Tiote, Jonas, Shola Ameobi, Ba

    HBA benched once again, and Evra will silence Raylor easily.

    Surely we could have little pictures of the star of the management team on the tops. Just imagine 11 pictures of Derek to grace the team. Only in my worst nightmares I hope.

    It does talk about the financial arrangements…”The Virgin Money logo will be used on team shirts for the remainder of the 2011-12 season under the current sponsorship arrangements.” So I’m guessing they’re paying us the same amount for at least this season

    Alan Pardew game plan is obviously to through millions of crosses into the box.. but with Shola Playing we’re not oging to win, I mean out off 11 games this season he has only scored 1. Pathetic.

    The starting lineup could be worse but why Ben Arfa still on the bench? Surely he deserves a start by now. Shola will wander around the pitch tripping over the occassional pass.

    What is Pardews problem,?? i hope to god this doesnt effect Bennys confidence, he is by far the most naturally gifted player at the club and deserves his place with what hes been through, even if its a gamble i thought Pardew was the man for that being thats the ownly reason hes the gaffer in the first place

    Pardew with his fu*king tactics all again.. What do he wants? A good team spirit while benching Ben Arfa again?? It’s nonsense. Here we go another 60min (or more) of long ball football. Shit, why does he doing this to us and to Ben Arfa. Why don’t FCNU play short passing fast moving football instead. With Ben Arfa and Vukcic on the pich…. SH*TY formation, tactics and our form. GOD HELP US.

    My mistake ^ .
    I actually think the long ball/crossing game will be more effective but wish Ben arfa would be playing on the wing.
