Facebook Turns Down FA's £40m Friend Request

From The Guardian:

Facebook has categorically denied that it is in talks with the FA and labelled the speculation as "bizarre".

In a statement released to The Sport Briefing, it said: "Facebook is not in talks with the England football team regarding sponsorship." A spokesman added: "I don't know where it has come from but it is not true. It's bizarre. We obviously work with lots of different brands and the FA have used the Facebook platform and the England team have a page.

"We've obviously been talking to them about those sorts of things, just like any other brand."
