Wonga To Replace Virgin Money As EPL Club Newcastle's Shirt Sponsor
Short-term loan company Wonga is "set to become the new shirt sponsor" for Newcastle United after the EPL club "decided to drop Virgin Money at the end of the season." The deal is being negotiated "for shirt sponsorship only, rather than also including naming rights to Newcastle's stadium." The club last week said that its deal with Virgin Money would end after the current season. Wonga also sponsors second-tier English club Blackpool and Scottish Premier League side Hearts (REUTERS, 10/8).
