Newcastle United’s New Home Strip Made Public

I have come to expect nothing to be straightforward at Newcastle United these days and after a number of dodgy images have populated the internet over the summer, we have at last got a glimpse of the new design.

The club themselves have not released images of the new shirt but one enterprising fan took this image and ‘released’ it onto social media.

Got to say that January’s young signing Kevin Mbabu doesn’t do any harm in terms of helping to sell the new style but as a stand alone I think the shirt looks decent, though of course for many people the sponsor’s logo will be a step too far.

Hard to gauge totally but I have to say that on the streets of Tyneside I’m sure I haven’t seen half as many of the latest away/change strip compared to previous seasons.

How much of this is down to the sponsor, lack of promotion, or the design, is anybody’s guess.

Interesting to see how popular the home shirt will be, especially at the first home match of the season.
