The latest sponsor for Blyth Spartans FC is Visit North Korea. Blyth Spartans is a British Football team. Blyth Spartans Association Football Club is a football club based in Blyth, Northumberland.

“Visit North Korea is proud to announce the signing of a sponsorship deal with English football team Blyth Spartans FC,” says a LinkedIn post by the tour company based in Shenzhen, China. Visit North Korea will be promoted on the club’s website and social media.

Blyth Spartans FC is in a town with a history of coal mining and shipbuilding and now the presence of wind turbines generating electricity. It seems an unlikely place to be sending visitors to North Korea, which only hosts about 4,000 Western tourists a year. The U.K. Foreign ministry warns British citizens to travel to North Korea.
The Chinese travel company lists a range of North Korea tours on its site, ranging in price from about $500 to $2,800, depending on the length and type of accommodation desired.
The ad cost Visit North Korea up to $190, according to rates posted on the football club’s website. The travel company feels the payoff is in pride.
