how many Saudiís are living in the north east.

the airline does have A321XRís on order.

I must admit I donít think it will happen but never say never.

15 years ago we said the same about EK and look where they are now!

"nd without wishing to stereotype Newcastle as a city, there aren't going to be that many Saudi young men and women likely to visiting the city on a weekend break for a bender!!"

whilst many Saudis are very religious an awful lot of them like hitting the flesh pots - all those bars and casinos in London, Paris, S Spain etc

They aren't well liked in the Mid East as they are seen as hypocrites who lecture every one else then disappear to Cairo, Beirut or wherever for a good time away from home, Most Saudi young men would think they'd died and gone to heaven in the Bigg Market at the weekend

The real question to ask is how many Saudi investments there are in the North East. Quite a bit.

Saudi investments? Apart from the football team, I’m struggling to find any?

The thing is..no one knows.

Dubai is the prime place for connectivity.Doha trying to compete..and Saudi Arabia a late new comer.
Money is no object to any of these guys…so watch this space!

Oh..and don’t forget Turkyie !



Me thinks it’s all just a promotional, sponsorship thing..which of course..in itself is a pretty big deal!

I'm sure you did, but they aren't paying the amount of money they're paying just to reach the people in the stadium. There'll have been at least as many Chelsea fans watching as there were Saudi United fans.

Pretty sure I've seen it demonstrated previously that PL matches have different adverts shown on the pitchside boards, depending on where the game is being watched worldwide. So the NCL-CHE game might have Saudia showing on the boards in the stadium and in some territories, but other global audiences might see another logo projected onto the boards instead, depending on what the sponsors request and agree on.

Ive a brother in Girona and used TUI a lot and the flight was barely three quarters full. Think them and jet2 was too much for a low demand resort area

Newcastle United has partnered with Saudi Arabia's national carrier, SAUDIA, as the club prepares for a warm weather training camp in Riyadh this December.

The team will travel to and from Riyadh on board a SAUDIA chartered flight as part of the partnership

Saudi Arabia is planning to break with it's total ban on alcohol by offering alcoholic drinks at a new resort to open in 2023. The resort will serve wine, cocktails and champagne but no beer.

​​​​​​It would mark the first time that alcohol is permitted for sale in the Islamic kingdom.

The resort is located on the island of Sindalah and is part of the Red Sea megacity Neom.

This mega project is a bid by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to diversify the Gulf state's oil-dependent economy.

Search online for Neom and you will also see that a huge airport has recently been built on the island of Sindalah to serve the resort.

But in typing that, it in no way implies that there will be a connection from NCL to Saudi Arabia which I think that most agree is a complete pipe dream. Plus with no beer available for sale at the resort it will obviously have no interest to your average Geordie.

Time to get a grip - this is a sponsorship arrangement where Saudia are flying NUFC on a mid season training trip.
