Newcastle United Football Club is set to refresh its marketing communications, and has appointed design consultancy 999 Design to the project.
Work will begin next month, when 999 will design and produce Newcastle’s 2008/09 replica kit brochure.
The brochure will be released to fans in the summer.
John Harrison of Sports Direct, which owns Newcastle United, says, ‘Initially we have commissioned 999 to refresh and develop our range.’
Andy Helme, managing director of 999 Manchester, says that the year-long contract is part of 999’s aim to continue to grow its business strategy of targeting high-end sports brands and clubs.
The consultancy has also worked for Reebok, Manchester City FC, Sunderland Golf, Puma, Blackburn Rovers FC and St Helens Rugby Club.
