Chairman of financially troubled Croatian football club Hajduk Split, Marin Brbic, is currently in London where he is talking to a potential major sponsor. Brbic is in the English capital holding preliminary talks with an anonymous interested investor after the club and the company had earlier talks.
Hajduk Split have been keeping mum on who the potential sponsor is as they do not want anything to effect a potential lucrative deal, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.
Hajduk’s playing shirt has been clean of a major sponsor for a while now, having dropped companies Ina, Atlas, Konzum and NTL from their shirts. Bank Splitska Banka have their logo on the sleeve of the shirt in a deal apparently worth around 260,000 euros a season, but the front of the shirt remains clean for now.
Hajduk Split are in major debt and almost were declared bankrupt if it was not for the Split City Council at the last hour guaranteeing a 30 million euro loan.
