NUFC – Director’s Box
I was incredibly fortunate to be invited to a Newcastle United match, with seats within the Director’s Box. I’ve only ever been to one match before, at Newcastle United, which was the very exciting Manchester United v Newcastle match but this one just about topped it, as it was Derby Day and I was in some of the best seats in the house!
The match was Newcastle V Sunderland. The fashionista’s question – what to wear?! Well in the Directors Box, the dress code is smart casual – no football tops or trainers allowed. Love how even at a football match, in certain areas, there’s still a dress code which excludes football shirts! I was going to wear heels and something pretty, however, it was freezing so grabbed the warmest coat I could find and wrapped myself up.
I’ve recently been on a visit to NUFC’s retail HQ (on Official Newcastle Fashion Week business) and they’re really starting to push the boat out on their range. Gone are the days of only focusing on football shirts and big black and white branded accessories, they’ve been working on more premium clothing – little magpies on shirts, a flash of black and white on trousers etc. Exciting stuff!
Back to the day anyway! Arriving in the Moncur Suite, there was an amazing buffet (with lobster!), drinks, your programme, a limited edition pin badge commemorating the match. However, the best thing for me (I’m such a girl!) was the amazing array of cakes at half time! Football, what football…?
