Liverpool Football Club and the world’s largest submarine restaurant chain, the SUBWAY brand, today announced a multi-year collaboration, which sees the global chain break into the Barclays Premier League.
To kick-start the relationship, the SUBWAY brand has been sending its range of low fat subs to participants on Liverpool FC Foundation programmes all week. The low fat range encourages youngsters on the club’s charitable-arm courses to ‘Train Hard and Eat Fresh’, as part of the brand’s efforts to support healthier and active lifestyles.
Billy Hogan, LFC’s chief commercial officer, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the SUBWAY brand as an official partner to Liverpool FC. We’ve worked closely with the SUBWAY team over the last few weeks and have seen first-hand value they place on giving back to local communities. We are excited to be joining forces with a global organisation who are just as passionate about making a positive difference to their communities as we are.”
The SUBWAY brand has over 41,675 stores across the world, providing great value, healthier food to more than 104 countries. In the UK alone there are 1,769 SUBWAY stores of which 31 are in and around Liverpool. Earlier this year the brand announced ambitious plans to increase this number to 3,000 SUBWAY stores in the UK and Ireland over the next six years, creating around 13,000 new jobs.

The impressive form of on-loan Liverpool forward Fabio Borini in 2013-14 was acknowledged with Sunderland’s Young Player of the Year honour by Black Cats supporters on Tuesday.
At a presentation evening at the Stadium of Light, the Italian collected the prize – recognition for a campaign in which he has so far contributed seven goals to his temporary team’s cause.
The 23-year-old, who was Brendan Rodgers’ first signing as Reds boss in 2012, struck against both Chelsea and Manchester United during Sunderland’s journey to the Capital One Cup final.
He then opened the scoring at Wembley by racing in behind the Manchester City defence and planting a swerving finish into the far corner, although the north-east side were ultimately beaten 3-1.
Borini has also found the target four times in the Barclays Premier League since joining Gus Poyet’s outfit for a season last September, including strikes in two matches with their rivals, Newcastle United.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be given the resources to carry out a squad overhaul in the summer to prepare his side for Champions League football next season.
The Reds’ 3-2 victory over Norwich on Sunday not only kept them on course for a first league title since 1990 but also guaranteed them a spot in Europe’s premier club competition, as reported on the club’s official Twitter feed:
As a result, managing director Ian Ayre confirmed on Tuesday that the club would be looking to significantly strengthen the squad.
As reported by David Maddock in the Mirror, he said:
What we achieved on Sunday was massive. This isn’t just about getting in the qualifiers [by finishing fourth] – we are guaranteed Champions League football. It is an unbelievable achievement from where we were.
There is no question we always expected that the squad we need for next season will be very different to the squad that we have needed for this year when we were not playing in Europe. That has always been on the cards.
We set out with an ambition to get into the Champions League, and now we are guaranteed third and we are determined to push on. It is all important for what we are trying to achieve.
It will be Liverpool’s first appearance in the Champions League since 2009, and Maddock’s report suggests that Rodgers may be given up to £70 million to spend on new players.

A glance through the Barclays Premier League scoring charts will reveal the secret to Liverpool’s relentless exploits in front of goal this season, according to Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.
The Northern Irishman’s team have plundered no fewer than 96 strikes so far in this campaign, five more than closest competitors Manchester City and then a huge gap to the rest of their rivals.
Prolific pair Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez have been the main protagonists, of course, with 20 and 30 efforts respectively ensuring that the Anfield duo comfortably lead the individual rankings.
But, beyond their partnership, goals have been raining in from all angles – the captain, Steven Gerrard, has 13; Raheem Sterling increased his tally to nine last weekend; and Martin Skrtel has found the target on seven occasions.
Rodgers considers that nature of his side to be a fundamental element of the Reds’ remarkable progression to a five-point advantage over Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League.
“That’s the beauty of us with our 96 league goals, it’s about more than one player,” the manager explained to the Liverpool Echo following the 3-2 win over Norwich City.
