Saudi Golf Federation CEO Appointed As NUFC Director



Newcastle have appointed Majed Al Sorour, the CEO of Saudi Golf Federation, as a director. He is also an advisor to the Saudi Public Investment Fund, whose Governor, Yasir Al-Rumayyan is also on Newcastle’s board of directors.

The Mail is confirming the appointment which was recorded on the latest Companies House filing. Al Sorour has been spotted at St. James’ Park with Al-Rumayyan during his visits this season.

The Mail also confirmed that Newcastle’s away kit for next season will be white with green trim, which is similar to the Saudi National Football team. The Saudis did qualify for the 2022 World Cup, which will take place toward the end of this year.

There has been some criticism of Newcastle’s apparent decision to adopt the white and green shirt for next season. However, it seems a relevant color scheme due to PIF’s stake in the club.

Newcastle have yet to announce any new sponsorship deals. In an interview in November, Amanda Staveley revealed that the then-Premier League moratorium on related-party sponsorship deals was holding things up saying:

“It is in the Premier League’s hands, but we will be seeking to do sponsorship deals as fast as possible. The moratorium does not stop us from working on them, getting ready for that time now. So it is really important.

“Our concern is that the process the Premier League do is quick enough so after we close the moratorium we can get sponsorships out. Obviously, that’s a really important part of the process.”

However, no sponsorship deals have been announced but we can likely expect some before the start of the next campaign as Newcastle build toward an exciting future.

    Mister Tuff – NONE of those 3 you list are left wing in terms of news, never have been. Sky was owned by Rupert Murdoch for years.

    I used to consider myself just right of centre but since then the right has moved a lot further right and the left has moved a bit more central.

    Not sure of your age but go back 30 years and compare:
    John Major’s Tory party with the current Tory party
    Neil Kinnock’s Labour party with current Labour party

    I was 14 at the time but I’d have voted Tory then, possibly did in the next GE.

    Toon fans bad – never understood the wokism thing, it’s weird to me. There’s nothing wrong with trying to understand a bit more about people who have been suffering or struggling, whether they’re black, gay, fishermen, or Toon fans!

    TDS,

    There’s some good shows on GBnews, interesting topics discussed and debated. I like Gloria Del Piero Presenter, think she was a labour MP previously.
    Colin Brazier is good as well.

    You warned CLINT he’s at risk of becoming seen as another lesh and that politics on The Blog’s a no no.

    Errr, I don’t think I’ve been the only one to post what are perceived as political comments, have I?

    Bob, I do not include you when I say that
    sadly, we’ve seen some extreme right and racist comments from those who say that politics should be taboo. People in glass houses comes to mind.

    Enough.
