But with the takeover of PIF, PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media in October last year, talk of a return of the Shearer’s Bar name resurfaced.

The bar has been closed since March 7 and is expected to reopen as Shearer’s on March 18. The NINE signage has been taken down and replaced by a revamped ‘Shearer’s’ logo over the entrance.

Newcastle’s next home game is against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday, April 8 (8pm kick-off).
