Newcastle United Football Club has partnered with sports travel companies Sportsbreaks.com and Destination Sport Travel.
The first deal will see Sportsbreaks.com become an official travel supplier and provide official ticket and hotel packages to the club’s home games at St. James’ Park.
The UK-based firm, which offers ticket-inclusive packages to sporting events, will enjoy a ‘strong presence’ with Newcastle United Women in becoming the Lady Magpies’ official training kit partner.
Newcastle United’s Head of Commercial, Dale Aitchison, said: “Partnering with Sportsbreaks.com and Destination Sport Travel encompasses all areas of Newcastle United.
“It will play a significant role in the growth of our women’s team as well as supplying travel for our men’s team, whilst also offering travel packages to our supporters. It’s an agreement that brings all areas of the football club together.
“With supporters from all locations, it is great to be able to offer a one-stop shop for fans looking to travel to games at St. James’ Park with travel, accommodation and match tickets all in one place.”
Meanwhile, sister business Destination Sport Travel, a UK-based travel provider for elite sports teams and organisations, will continue to support the Premier League club with all aspects of the first team and business travel.
“We’re delighted to announce a multi-year partnership with Newcastle United encompassing team and business travel, plus official ticket and hotel breaks for supporters,” added Rob Slawson, Managing Director of Sportsbreaks.com and Destination Sport Travel.
“From a team and business travel perspective, our Destination Sport Travel staff have a long-standing relationship with the club having delivered for them over many years including this summer’s pre-season trips to Austria, Germany and Portugal.
“Equally, we’re looking forward to adding official Newcastle United ticket and hotel breaks to our growing portfolio of Sportsbreaks.com football match breaks. Newcastle is a fantastic city destination in its own right, plus a special place to watch football.
“We’re sure these packages will be in high demand from Magpies supporters around the world. As a company, we’re committed to supporting the growth of women’s sport so will be proud to see the Sportsbreaks.com logo appear on the training kits of Newcastle United Women.”
