Invest in Africa

What the hell has that got to do with football. I thought Tombola was bad enough as a sponsor. Have also heard we are doing a Newcastle and renaming the Stadium of Light as the Invest in Africa stadium.
One shirt I will not be buying.

What's the problem with 'Investing in Africa?'
Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead...Do not walk in front of me, for I may not Follow...Do not walk beside me...just f*ck off and leave me alone!

No problem with the concept, just think it looks crap emblazened accross the front of a football shirt. I also can't understand what it has to do with a NE team. I think Quinns last job at Sunderland was in Africa so guess this stems from that.

what the hell has most sponsorship to do with football its all about bringing in the money, invest in africa is actually tullow oil (30th largest company on the Ftse 100 and an operating profit of over 1 billion last year) and it takes us to a new level really of company sponsorship, and why not name the stadium it has no history like roker did or st james with the new fair play regulations coming in the more money the better

The sponsorship deal is reputed to be worth £20m to Sunderland AFC.

Makes Milliband's exit look very suspicious doesn't it?
