Saudi deal confirmed as Newcastle United announce second partnership in space of two days

Newcastle United have announced an official partnership with Saudi Airlines – otherwise known as SAUDIA – ahead of our mid-season trip to Riyadh next month.

SAUDIA will now become the club’s Official Tour Airline Partner for the remainder of the 2022/23 season, putting on a chartered flight for the Newcastle United squad when we travel to Saudi Arabia for a warm-weather training camp in December; which will also feature a friendly against Al-Hilal.

This comes after the club revealed a partnership with leading energy drink company Monster earlier this week, showing that Peter Silverstone and Darren Eales are wasting no time boosting the club’s commercial revenue streams.

Speaking to NUFC.couk, here’s what Silverstone – our new chief commercial officer – has had to say about the partnership:

 “Whilst Newcastle United is on an exciting and ambitious journey to grow our global reach and fanbase, we are also very focussed on growing our fan base and following in Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Middle East.

“Our ambition is to become the most supported English Premier League football team in Saudi Arabia; a country whose population includes a large, young, passionate and highly engaged football community.

“We are delighted to partner with SAUDIA as our official tour airline partner, and we look forward to working with them during our trip to Riyadh and for the remainder of the 2022/23 English Premier League Season.”
