Newcastle United reveal redesigned home shirt
Newcastle United have launched their latest home kit.
The club say the new round-necked Puma shirt takes inspiration from the Fairs Cup final win over Ujpest Dozsa 50 years ago.
United added that the kit will have “black shorts, while traditional black and white turnover socks”.
A club statement read: "Newcastle United has unveiled its brand new Puma home kit, which pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the club’s Inter-Cities Fairs Cup win.
“Just like the black and white jersey proudly worn by the stars of 1969, the new home shirt will feature a familiar black round-neck collar with white trim, while a tonal crest will adorn the Magpies’ classic black and white stripes.
“The club's primary partner, FUN88, will proudly feature across the front of adult shirts.
“The kit will again feature black shorts, while traditional black and white turnover socks – as worn by Joe Harvey’s triumphant side – also make a return.”
The kit worn by Newcastle’s Fairs Cup-winning team, led by Bob Moncur, also had a round neck. However, it featured more stripes – and striped sleeves – when compared with the new jersey, which will cost £65.
There has been a mixed reaction online to the first images of the kit from supporters.
United are yet to reveal their changes strips for next season.
Fans can pre-order the kit from today, and it will be on sale in club stores from July 1.
