Newcastle have unveiled their third kit,and it’s a (very) strange combination of navy blue and light green colors – chosen by fans.
Janmaat, Colo and Willo wearing new strip
The news is that Newcastle fans can purchase the kit from 9:00 am this Saturday at www.nufcdirect.com and also official club stores before the kit is worn by the first team in their game at Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Monday, 29th September.
It will be interesting to see if the strip succeeds in upsetting the Stoke players – it looks so strange. 😀
Apparently the PUMA third kit was chosen by members of the Club’s official Fans Forum.
Lee Charnley, Managing Director at Newcastle United, said this:
“We wanted to involve our supporters in the design and approval process for this kit and as such we presented a number of options to Fans Forum members.”
“We are delighted to unveil this kit, chosen by those members, which I am sure our players and fans will wear with pride.”
Ruth How, PUMA UKIB head of marketing, said:
“We strive to create designs that inspire both players and fans to feel proud of their team.” “Both are equally important but this season we wanted to give the Club’s loyal fans the chance to vote for their favourite third kit design.”
“We think they’ve chosen a fantastic design and look forward to seeing the Magpies pick up three points when they wear it for the first time against Stoke on 29th September.”
What were the Fans Forum people thinking?
Anyway, on the positive side there’s always hope the strip will so shock the Stoke City players, that it will put them completely off their game, and we may even take something out of that game at the Britannia Stadium.
There again, some fans may event like the new strip.
