Meet Rafa Benitez and the Newcastle United FC superstars at Dublin’s Sports Direct megastore
Head to Dublin’s Sports Direct megastore for your chance to meet Rafa Benitez and the Newcastle United FC superstars…
The new Sports Direct megastore on North Earl Street, Dublin is about to play host to an exciting meet and greet session with stars from Newcastle United FC.
One hundred lucky fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with their footballing heroes Tuesday afternoon as manager Rafa Benitez and five of his star players take a break from their pre-season training camp to officially launch their third kit in our new North Earl Street megastore.
The club are big fans of Ireland having spent the last two years preparing for the new season at a state-of-the-art training camp on the outskirts of Dublin.
Their in-store visit follows the launch of NUFC’s slick new third strip designed by Puma as part of its Step Out Campaign. Featuring high performance fabric, the shirt’s distinctive dark design and high style specifications are complimented by gold trim, the Fun88 sponsor’s logo and a limited edition 125th anniversary badge making it perfect for sport or leisure. Fans will have the opportunity to view and purchase the strip in store.
Admission to the Newcastle United meet and greet is available on a first come first served basis and those attending will have one-on-one access to top players including Irish international Ciaran Clark, Puma ambassador Isaac Hayden, Dwight Gayle, Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and, of course, Rafa Benitez himself.
Wristbands will be given to 100 lucky fans on a first come first served basis from 9am Tuesday in store. Fans with a special wristband get access to the meet and greet session which begins at 2.30pm. Check out all the excitement in store and beyond on all social channels with the hashtag #NUFCDublin.
The visit from the Geordie stars is the latest in a number of exciting VIP events at the Sports Direct megastore which has transformed Dublin’s retail landscape since it was opened in May. It offers six floors of the latest sportswear and equipment and stocks 50,000 leading products from A-Lister brands like Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Puma, Karrimor, O’Neills and USA Pro – covering sports from GAA to soccer, running to swimming.

For us as a business our football category continues to grow. In our new 32,000 sq foot megastore here on North Earl Street we have a whole floor dedicated to football.
