Hearts FC launch new ‘Waystar Royco’ shirts in partnership with ‘Succession’

In season two of the show, Roman Roy buys the Edinburgh club, the arch rivals of his father Logan's team Hibernian

Streaming service NOW have teamed up with Hearts football club to launch a range of new Succession-themed shirts, celebrating the arrival of the show’s third season.

In season two of the hit HBO show, Roman Roy buys the Edinburgh-based club to impress his father Logan, not realising that they are in fact the arch rivals of Logan’s club Hibernian.

As part of the partnership, Hearts have launched a range of shirts featuring the Roy’s company Waystar Royco as sponsor, as well as branding around the club’s stadium Tynecastle Park.

Hearts manager Robbie Neilson said: “The club has been so excited to feature in one of the main storylines of one the biggest TV shows on the planet and we’re thrilled to be working with NOW to help launch this partnership celebrating season 3 of the show today.

“Just like the Roy children in Succession, we’re a club battling for the one place at the very top. Unlike the Roys though, we know we can only get there by working together.”

The club’s CEO Andrew McKinley added: “As huge fans of the show, we’re really excited to be working with NOW to bring this Succession takeover to Tynecastle.

“We love watching the Hearts-related storylines in the show, although we’re quite thankful not to have any members of the Roy family running the club in real life! Brian and Kieran are always welcome in the director’s box at Tynecastle as a guest of the real owners of the club – the fans.”
