Virgin Money has agreed a two-year shirt sponsorship deal with Newcastle United which will run until the end of the 2013/14 season.

Virgin will also assume sponsorship of the club from Northern Rock for the remainder of this season, following Virgin’s successful acquisition of the state-backed bank on January 1. Virgin Money announced the acquisition of Northern Rock on November 17.

The club will unveil the new shirt this evening when Newcastle take on Manchester United in the Premier League. The first 10,000 supporters with 2011/12 shirts that bring them to the club shop will receive a free Virgin Money sponsored shirt.

Virgin Money chief executive Jayne-Anne Gadhia says: “Now that Virgin Money and Northern Rock are united as one business, it gives us great pleasure to continue the shirt sponsorship of Newcastle United Football Club. The Northern Rock sponsorship started in 2003 and it is an important link to the North-East which we are pleased to continue.

“Combined with our sponsorship of the Virgin London Marathon and the Edinburgh Festival ‘Fringe on the high street’, the shirt sponsorship of Newcastle United Football Club embeds our involvement in the communities we serve.”
