Newcastle strive to work with blue chip companies across all commercial sectors and we see Worldlink as a key long term partner to bring enhanced betting services to our fans.’
Neil Riches, managing director of Worldlink, added: ‘I am thrilled to announce a partnership with such a world renowned club in the Barclays Premier League .We are looking forward to providing Newcastle United fans not only a fantastic betting experience, but also developing a long term relationship with the club.’
Newcastle United finished fifth in last year’s Premier League table, eight places above neighbours Sunderland.
