Falcons’ players Kane Thompson, Dan Temm and Chris York were on hand to officially launch the new partnerships this week at the Shark Club. The Shark Club Bar & Grill logo will appear on the sleeve of the prop forwards’ shirts for the remainder of the season with the Sandman Signature Hotel logo on the sleeve of the number 2 hooker’s shirt as well as both centres.

The partnership will see a number of events for Falcons supporters and corporate clients staged over the remainder of the current season at both the Shark Club and the Hotel. Falcons’ supporters as well as visiting opposition team fans will also be able to take advantage of some exclusive room rates at the luxury 4* city centre hotel.

Speaking about the new partnerships Newcastle Falcons managing director Mick Hogan said:

“It’s fantastic news that both the Sandman Signature Hotel and Shark Club are partnering the club for the remainder of the 2014-15 season. We look forward to working with both organisations to deliver a series of great events for our supporters and corporate clients over the next eight months. The management at the Sandman Signature Hotel and Shark Club are a very impressive and forward thinking team. They have already proposed some fantastic ideas that will mean this partnership really delivers for all involved.”

Executive General Manager of the Sandman Signature Hotel, Paul Smith said;
“The Sandman Signature Hotel ethos is to work closely with the business and corporate community, with relationships in our home region of the North East. As a top sports bar and dining destination for all the major sporting fixtures, The Shark Bar & Grill was perfectly partnered to link with the Newcastle Falcons. We are proud to have a region which has nurtured so much sporting talent across the board and we are delighted with this new partnership.”

Privately owned by a Canadian holding company, the contemporary Sandman Signature Hotel and Shark Bar & Grill was originally home to the former iconic Scottish & Newcastle Brewery which has played a significant role in the city’s history. The hotel is surrounded by key attractions in the city including a thriving shopping district, China Town, Newcastle University, The Centre for Life, Quayside, the stunning North East coastal region and Intu Metrocentre, the biggest shopping centre in Europe.

General Manager of the Shark Club Bar & Grill Adrian Lowry said:

“Newcastle Falcons are a perfect association for our profile at the Shark. We are a sports bar destination with a fantastic sporting fixture diary available on 37 flat screen’s around the bar. We hope to see players, visiting teams and dignitaries, guests and VIPS in the sports bar throughout the season.”

The hotel features a roof top gym, fast wifi and a range of luxury bedrooms including
apartrooms with fully equipped kitchens with an optional Waitrose shopping delivery service and an overnight laundry service designed as a top choice for the business, leisure and sporting community – and especially for business operators who often need to be in the city and wider region for a considerable amount of time.

The hotel also offers extremely comfortable family rooms with extra large bunk beds with top quality mattresses with kitchens as well as the usual luxury suites and double bedrooms. As a privately owned enterprise the hotel is able to offer bespoke packages perfect for the business community and groups travelling together.

Newcastle Falcons’ next Aviva Premiership fixture sees them take on Saracens at their Kingston Park stadium on Saturday 27th December. Tickets for the game are available now starting from only £15 for adults and £7.50 for juniors; for more information or to get yours click [here][1].
