Coral announced as Newcastle United’s betting and gaming partner

| 21.08.2015

We are proud to announce that we are Newcastle United’s new official betting and gaming partner after agreeing a two-year deal with the club.

Coral operates 1,850 betting shops across the UK as well as the fastest growing online and mobile betting service, and will now become a familiar sight inside St. James’ Park with kiosks offering betting facilities across the stadium.

Dale Aitchison, head of partnerships at Newcastle United, said: “Coral is a respected and well known high street betting brand and we are delighted to introduce them into the family of partners at Newcastle United.

“I am positive that our fans will get great value from Coral, with a combination of exclusive odds and special offers available to them throughout St. James’ Park as well as online.”

Matt Prevost, Brand Director at Coral, said: “Everyone at Coral is thrilled to be partnering with a club of the size and stature of Newcastle United, and we look forward to providing a professional and exciting betting service to the Club’s fans, that are widely regarded as the most passionate and knowledgeable in the country.”

The Magpies are gearing up for what could be a successful season under new boss Steve McClaren, after an active summer recruitment campaign, which has seen the club bring in Anderlecht pair Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel M’bemba, Dutch star Georginio Wijnaldum from PSV Eindhoven and French prospect Florian Thauvin from Marseille.

They are 3/1 with Coral for a top 10 Premier League finish this term and once everyone clicks, the club have a great chance.

Newcastle have a rich history in the English top flight, and big names to boast with legends of the game Alan Shearer and Peter Beardsley inspiring role models, as well as former manager Sir Bobby Robson who arguably guided the club through their most successful era.
