After a number of bad news stories over the last two weeks at Newcastle, at last some good news – well sort of – with Papa John’s becoming the Official Pizza Partner of Newcastle United.
But there’s a catch – a big one – it’s only when Newcastle score two goals – so that’s a pity.
And news reports have pointed out that Newcastle have failed to score in their last three Premier League games at home, and in five of their last six league games.
Oh well the thought was good while it lasted.
Dale Aitchison, is of Partnerships for Newcastle United and he had this to say:
“This is a really exciting partnership and one that I’m sure the supporters will enjoy. The fans play a big part in our performances at home and on the road and it’s great that Papa
John’s have shown their appreciation for the support they give our players.”
A really exciting partnership is probably overstating it quite a bit – it would have been really exciting if Papa John’s had agreed to put £10M into Newcastle’s coffers in each of the next three seasons – that would have been really exciting.
Andrew Gallagher is Papa John’s Marketing Director, and he was pleased the American Pizza company, who have been expanding their links with English football in the lower divisions, have an agreement with one of “giants of English football.”
Is he talking about Newcastle?
These deals are all very well and good, but where’s the (big) money in it for Newcastle?
