The 2018/19 Newcastle United third kit has been revealed on Tuesday afternoon.
The new design (see below) will go on sale from Friday 3 August.
It remains to be seen how much it will cost but currently Mike Ashley is charging £65 for the new home shirt at both Sports Direct and NUFC, the full new home kit costing a whopping £112!
Ironic that only minutes before the launch of the new Newcastle United third kit, Rafa Benitez has revealed that he can’t buy players unless he sells some first.
This at a time when already £750m has been spent this summer by Premier League clubs, an average of £37.5m per club.
Newcastle have splashed out £4m.
Newcastle United official announcement:
Newcastle United have revealed the club’s three PUMA kits for the 2018/19 season.
The club’s third kit, sponsored by FUN88, was revealed on Tuesday and it features a light shade of blue – dubbed ‘blue caraçao’ – throughout.
The kit is complemented by navy blue and white accents across the shirt, shorts and socks.
The third kit was the last to be unveiled following the club’s traditional black and white home kit – worn for the first time by summer signing Ki Sung-yueng – and a maroon and navy blue away kit inspired by the Entertainers team of the mid-Nineties.
The Magpies’ will wear the club’s home kit, which features a black and white shirt, black shorts and white socks, for the first time at Tuesday night’s pre-season fixture at St. Patrick’s Athletic in Dublin.
The Magpies’ 2018/19 home kit is available for pre-order now and will be in store on Thursday 26th July.
The club’s away and third kits will be available in store from Friday 3rd August.
