Complete One’s prediction comes true as Newcastle United win promotion to the EPL
After Newcastle United were relegated into the Championship last season, Managing Director at Complete One, Glen Lowes predicted that Rafa Benitez would guide the club straight back to promotion.
With their headquarters in Old Eldon Square, Complete One are just minutes away from the home of Newcastle United – St James’ Park. The Newcastle-based events marketing specialists have a keen interest in the fortunes of Newcastle United and were disappointed when they were relegated. The firm is passionate about sport and believes that success in business and sport requires many of the same attributes; a strong work ethic, will to win, commitment to being the best and a good coach.
Mr Lowes was confident that experienced coach Rafa Benitez would lead Newcastle United back into the English Premier League. Benitez had a track record of success in England, previously guiding Liverpool to a historic Champions League win in 2005, in a game dubbed ‘the miracle of Istanbul’. He also led them to victory in the FA Cup in 2006 before taking them to the Champions League Final again in 2007.
Speaking at the time of the relegation, Managing Director at Complete One Glen Lowes commented, “It’s going to be an exciting season next year, Newcastle United have failed to live up to the fans’ expectations for many years now. However, with Benitez at the helm, I am quietly confident that the side will regain their place in the EPL next season.”
Newcastle United secured their return to the top flight with a 4-1 win at home to Preston North End. That victory saw the side sitting second in the league to Brighton and Hove Albion, however, a run of results saw The Magpies jump to first and clinch the title.
Newcastle is a city that lives and breathes sport and having Newcastle United back in the EPL next season is a massive boost. At Complete One they are big sports fans, the firm is an official sponsor of Rugby League side Newcastle Falcons.
“I am a strong believer than many of the attributes that make a successful sports team can be transferred into the business world, and we currently work with many athletes and sports enthusiasts who are proving that theory,” said Mr Lowes.
Complete One is of the fastest growing event-marketing companies in the North East, specialising in customer acquisition through in-person promotions. Their expertise lies in increasing market share and raising brand awareness through interactive and personalised marketing and sales campaigns, at high profile events and venues. The firm are big sports fans and look forward to cheering on Newcastle United in the EPL next season.
