Today Newcastle United revealed their new home strip today and it can now be pre-ordered, and the lads will wear the new strip on Sunday against West Ham, in what may be our last game in the Premier League depending on the result between Hull City and Manchester United.
Hopefully we will remain a PL club at 6:00 pm on Sunday evening.
Newcastle strip with old Wonga logo
However, Wonga have just revealed their new logo for Wonga.com – and yes – you guessed it – Newcastle have the old logo on their shirts.
It’s embarrassing for both Newcastle and Wonga, that there wasn’t enough communication between the two sides about what each was doing – but it’s classic it happened on the exact same day.
When Newcastle officials heard of the new Wonga logo – there was not enough time apparently to change the logo for the kit, which is manufactured by Puma.
Newcastle are due to wear the strips in the final game against West Ham on Sunday – so it’s a good question whether Puma can get the new logo on the shirts before then.
This is what a spokesman for Wonga said:
“The issue was due to the production schedule.”
OK – so it doesn’t look like the new logo will be on the shirts on Sunday.
But at a time when Newcastle are taking heat for being in such a complete mess, this is yet another embarrassment for those who are running the club.
The new Wonga logo takes off the .com – the W is white on a blue background and remaining letters are blue on a white background. – you can see it here on the Wonga web-site at the top left hand corner.
