Newcastle United’s anthem is “Going Home (Theme of the Local Hero)” by Mark Knopfler. It was written for the 1983 film Local Hero, which was filmed in and around Newcastle.
The song is a slow, mournful ballad that captures the sense of nostalgia and longing for home that many people feel.
It has become an anthem for Newcastle United fans, who sing it at the start of every home match.
The song’s lyrics are as follows:
- Down by the river, where the water meets the sky
- I can see the town where I was born and raised
- The streets are full of memories, of friends and family
- And I know that I’m home again
- The sun is setting on the Tyne
- And the day is drawing to a close
- But I’m not ready to leave this place
- I’m not ready to say goodbye
- I’m going home, going home
- To the place where I belong
- I’m going home, going home
- To Newcastle United
The song is a powerful and moving tribute to Newcastle United and the city of Newcastle. It is a song that fans of the club can sing with pride and passion. It is a song that will always be associated with the club and the city.
Newcastle FC Owner
Newcastle United is currently owned by a consortium led by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF).
The PIF is a sovereign wealth fund that is owned by the government of Saudi Arabia. The other members of the consortium are PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media.
The takeover of Newcastle United by the PIF was completed in October 2021. The deal was worth £305 million.
The takeover was controversial, as there were concerns about the human rights record of the Saudi Arabian government.
However, the Premier League approved the takeover after the PIF agreed to a number of conditions, including the appointment of a non-executive chairman who would be independent of the Saudi government.
The takeover of Newcastle United by the PIF has been a major turning point for the club. The PIF has invested heavily in the club, and they have been able to attract some of the biggest names in world football.
The club has also been able to improve their stadium and training facilities.
The PIF’s ownership of Newcastle United has led to the club being dubbed as the “richest club in the world”. The club has a lot of potential, and they are expected to challenge for major trophies in the coming years.
