It looks like Newcastle United could be facing a yellow card after they were caught offering betting group Fun88's logo on shirts worn by youth team players.
The shirts are a violation of English Football Association rules, which state that team kit cannot have alcohol or gambling logos on them if the team is an under 18 club. Apparently Newcastle knew what it was doing, as it signed a three year sponsorship deal with Fun88 to offer the logos on both adult and youth shirts. That decision led to much criticism, causing the club to drop the logo on the youth kits in January.
It's unclear what sanctions Newcastle will face, but the group has until the 27th of March to respond to the charges.
No party had a comment on the matter as of press time.
