Newcastle United’s new kit for the 2020/21 has now been revealed on the club’s official website.
The PUMA kit features the return of thinner vertical stripes, along with black shorts and socks, with FUN88 remaining after they agreed a new long-term sponsorship deal with the club on Monday.
Newcastle have also confirmed that the shirt will be worn for the first time this Sunday in our final day of the season clash with Liverpool at St James’ Park.
Here’s the club’s full statement following its release:
Newcastle United and PUMA have unveiled the Magpies’ new home kit which will be worn by the club’s men’s, women’s and youth teams during the 2020/21 season.
The new kit will be worn for the very first time on Sunday, 26th July 2020, when Newcastle United host Premier League champions Liverpool in the final match of the current 2019/20 campaign – and it will go on sale to supporters on the same day.
Featuring the club’s famous black and white stripes and using proven dryCELL technology, PUMA has created a design with thinner vertical bands than other recent seasons but has maintained a classic Newcastle United look.
Adult shirts will once again feature the branding of the club’s primary partner, FUN88, after a new long-term partnership deal was announced on Monday.
And the 2020/21 home kit is complete with traditional black shorts and black socks, which have white hoops to the outer side of the leg.
Allan Saint-Maximin has also given a brief message to fans following the release of our latest kit.
“As the supporters will know, me and my kids enjoyed wearing last season’s kit a lot but the new shirt looks great and I am looking forward to wearing it for the very first time on Sunday.
“I hope supporters will enjoy it too and we can be together again in black and white soon.”
Here’s also a first glimpse of the goalkeeper shirt – something that’s gone down well on social media since its release!
Supporters will be able to buy the new kit on Sunday, 26th July, however the fact an adult shirt will set you back £64.99 may make many think twice about buying!
