READ NEWCASTLE VERDICT
It is always great to see sponsors of the club engaging with the fans and looking to create a relationship with the supporters, which is exactly what FUN88 are trying to do.
Mocking Sunderland is always a good way to get into the hearts of Newcastle fans, who seem to be responding well to the post!
Hopefully FUN88 will have positives things to say about Newcastle’s performances on the pitch throughout the season in order to grow their relationship with the fanbase even further!
