The club have announced a new sponsor for their two games in the Premier League Asia Tour. The first of which is against Wolves and will kick-off in a few hours.
The sponsor is a Chinese sports data app called National Sports and will replace FUN88 for these two upcoming preseason matches.
This is part of the announcement from the club:
National Sports – which is a comprehensive professional sports data app in China – replaces FUN88 for the tournament following an agreement with the Magpies’ primary sponsor.
The app gives users a bespoke experience, using their preferences to provide comprehensive, diverse sports information and analysis of players and teams, as well as interactions with likeminded fans.
Dale Aitchison, head of commercial at Newcastle United, said: “We are pleased to be partnering the National Sports app and to be building on our appearance at the Premier League Asia Trophy by strengthening commercial relationships.
“National Sports is all about giving fans access to stats which bring the game to life, so it is a great fit to coincide with our matches in front of passionate Chinese supporters.”
