What is sportswashing?

Do you really know?

What is sportswashing? Thanks for asking! 

Look out Premier League clubs, a new big boy is in town! That’s right, following approval of their acquisition by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, Newcastle United has all of a sudden become one of the richest clubs in the world!

While the Toon Army are celebrating their club’s new found wealth and dreaming of trophies to come in the future, other observers aren’t in such a buoyant mood. They’ve accused the new owners, who effectively represent the state of Saudi Arabia, of sportswashing.

Have the new owners actually done anything wrong? How common are we talking then? Why would sports clubs or athletes want to risk tarnishing their image with such links? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
