FC Groningen sells 1,500 shirts with signature of Robben | NOW


FC Groningen has earned a lot of money by selling shirts with Arjen Robben’s signature on them. The club sold 1,500 copies for a special Black Friday promotion.

According to RTV North that yields FC Groningen about 123,000 euros extra turnover. Robben is still busy with it in the near future, because he still has to sign about 1,400 shirts.

Financially FC Groningen has already benefited greatly from Robben’s return. The Northerners sold a few thousand more season tickets and shirts last summer than has been the case in previous years.

From a sporting point of view, Robben does not enjoy his return as a professional football player for the time being. He only played two official games (against PSV and FC Utrecht) and was absent in recent weeks due to an injury.

The 36-year-old attacker did resume part of the group training this week. He will not play in the home game with Willem II on Sunday, but may be able to participate again in the away game with AZ next week.

Without Robben, FC Groningen is having a good season. The team of trainer Danny Buijs is partly thanks to a handsome victory over leader Ajax (1-0) after nine rounds of play in eighth place in the Eredivisie.
