Newcastle based stag and hen company, Last Night of Freedom are celebrating Newcastle United’s first cup final since 1999, by giving away hundreds of t-shirts to fans.
The shirts which have been designed and produced by the UK’s leading stag and hen firm, display an image of German goalkeeper Loris Karius, who is set to play in the Carabao Cup final which will take place on Sunday, February 26 at Wembley Stadium.
The t-shirts show an image of Karius, alongside the slogan “KARIUS HOME!”
The 29-year-old goalkeeper is usually Newcastle United’s third or fourth choice but is set to take to the pitch after Nick Pope was sent off last Saturday in the match against Liverpool.
“Everyone loves a good comeback story, and we are convinced Loris will get his redemption on Sunday,” said Matt Mavir, Managing Director of Last Night of Freedom.
“Everyone is willing him on to succeed, and as a company where our staff live and breathe Newcastle United, we just wanted to do something special for the fans and to show Loris we
are all behind him.”
Mavir is confident that Newcastle United will bring the victory home, saying: “Newcastle fans are desperate for Loris to have his Rocky moment and for him to carry us home to
glory, and I really think this year is Newcastle’s year. It is going to be an afternoon we will never forget.”
“The travelling Toon Army are just going to overwhelm the Manchester United supporters, and Wembley will feel more like St James’ Park come Sunday afternoon,” he added.
The limited-edition shirts are available in sizes ranging from small to double XL, and have been distributed to Newcastle City Centre bars and pubs. Fans can collect the t-shirts for free to wear milestone match day.
