Newcastle United Sign Lingerie Deal

Mon 5th Sep 2011 | Marketing & PR

Newcastle United has become the latest football club to sign a deal with a leading underwear retailer.

The club has signed a deal with football-related underwear specialists Premier Lingerie to stock the official club shops with special black and white underwear emblazoned with the club’s logo.

The range includes bras, briefs, French knickers, stockings, suspender belts and camisoles in a variety of sizes.

Stuart Middlemiss, Newcastle United’s head of retail, said: “This is something which a lot of other clubs have been exploring and we are keen to see how Newcastle fans take to the club-branded lingerie.”

The deal sees United become the second Barclays Premier League club to stock lingerie in their club shops after linking up with Midlands-based Premier Lingerie. Wolverhampton Wanderers were the first to sign up last Christmas, and now the company is in discussions with numerous other clubs.

Paul Robinson, director of Premier Lingerie, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Newcastle United – it’s such a big club and has a massive fan base, not only in the north east but across the country and further afield.

“We’ve had a great reaction at Wolves so I’m confident that they’ll also be a hit with Newcastle fans.”

Paul added: “Women now make up about 20 per cent of football supporters but only three to five per cent of club merchandise is aimed at them. A lot of clubs simply stock pink t-shirts with the club’s logo on them – that’s not good enough. Not enough clubs are doing anything sassy for their female fans, so that’s where we’re helping.”

Over the past two years and using high-quality materials, Premier Lingerie has developed an exclusive range of lingerie for female supporters. The range includes a variety of styles produced in club colours, tastefully adorned with official insignia.

The full range is now being stocked in Newcastle United’s club shops and is also available online at www.nufc.co.uk
