Newcastle United today released the new away strip for next season, with new sponsors Wonga shown on the shirt.
Here is the new away goalkeeper strip for next season – worn by Rob Elliot
Stuart Middlemiss, Head of Retail at Newcastle United, had this to say today about the new strip:
“The new away kit has a very distinctive look and the initial feedback we have had about the design and feel from players has been very positive.” “We are delighted to be offering fans the opportunity to purchase their kit ahead of their summer holidays. I’m sure it will prove to be extremely popular.”
Roger Harrison, Marketing Director at PUMA UK, said the following:
“Newcastle United have one of the most iconic home shirts in British football. Our challenge was to deliver an away shirt that both enhanced player performance and inspired fans to wear it with pride.” “We’re proud to achieve both requirements with the integration of Dry Cell technology and our Spirit graphic.”
And finally, Darryl Bowman, Marketing Director at Wonga.com, had this to say:
“It’s great to finally see our brand on a Newcastle United shirt and we’re looking forward to our sponsorship officially starting on Monday, 20th May.” “We’ll be kicking it off with something special to celebrate the return of St. James’ Park and there’s lots more planned for Newcastle’s huge and loyal fan base over the coming season.”
The strip below is what we released a couple of days ago and it’s close – very close – to what the new away strip turned out to be – how’s that for pure luck. 😀
Let us know what you think of the new strips.
Note – We’ve been told there’s going to be a minute’s applause for Steve Harper in the 37th minute of the game on Sunday – that’s his number – and it’s in appreciation of Steve’s 20 years at the club and all he’s done for Newcastle – we should be 2-0 up by then too – please pass this on to those attending the game on Sunday against Arsenal.
