NEWCASTLE UNITED vs HULL CITY – 20/09/2014
Our second matchday campaign targeted the Hull City fixture as an opportunity for fans to voice their displeasure at the continued employment of Alan Pardew.
We created a lot of publicity in the week leading up to the game, including an interview on TalkSport:
For the game itself, we secured:
– 30,000 Sack Pardew A4 Leaflets
– 105 banners
– A van emblazoned with Sack Pardew banners to drive in close proximity to SJP, and the city centre
– Distribution points in 10 city centre establishments
– 4 promotional staff to aid in leaflet circulation
Our volunteers were in the city centre from 11 am, working hard to ensure that protest material was available to anyone who wished to take part. The support that we received was overwhelming and the protest took place without any related trouble as confirmed by Northumbria Police.
Newcastle United made a very heavy-handed effort to quell protest within the ground, our response to which can be found here.
