Virgin Money has agreed to become shirt sponsor of Newcastle United in a two-year deal. This follows a long-standing relationship between Northern Rock and Newcastle United. Virgin Money has completed the acquisition of Northern Rock.
The Virgin Money logo will be used on team shirts for the remainder of the 2011-12 season under the current sponsorship arrangements.
Jayne-Anne Gadhia at Virgin Money says, "Combined with our sponsorship of the Virgin London Marathon and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on the high street, the shirt sponsorship of Newcastle United 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."
