Newcastle Unveil Away And Third Strips

8:38 am, Thursday, July 14th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 14 Comments

Newcastle have announced their away strips and third strips for this coming season and of course they have been leaked before now.

Here’s what Newcastle put out today on the strips and they will be available on Monday 1st August – two weeks come Monday.


Newcastle United are proud to reveal the Club’s 2016/17 PUMA away and third kits.

Both kits will be worn on the road as the Magpies embark on a promotion push in the Sky Bet Championship.

This season’s away kit features a block navy shirt with a bold flame-orange band across the chest.

The sleeves are constructed to enhance freedom of movement and include an impactful flameorange PUMA formstripe detail to enhance the graphic look of the shirt.

The third kit, meanwhile, features contrasting white and purple colours and will be debuted at Saturday’s opening pre-season clash with Bohemian FC, in Dublin.

Both kits are complemented by colour coordinating shorts with a striking PUMA formstripe and – just like the home kit – are complete with traditionally inspired hooped socks in corresponding colours.

This is what Jamaal Lascelles has said:

“As a team we are famed for our black and white stripes but it’s nice to have some bright and bold away and third kits for when we’re away from home,”

“The lads all love them. We’re only a few weeks out now and are already looking forward to pulling on the new shirts and getting this season’s promotion campaign underway.”

Paul Spencer, general manager PUMA UKIB, added:

“Newcastle United are a team with such great history and passionate fans and they deserve kits which complement their bold play out on the field and up on the terraces, and we think these new shirts do just that.”

The new official 2016/17 Newcastle United away and third kits will be available from PUMA stores, the Newcastle United club store, online from and Sports Direct from Monday, 1st August, 2016.


We like the third strip but not too sure about the away strip – although it is different.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    morning all
    i quite like the idea of bringing sinclair in, providing the price is decent,he’s a left winger which we are a little shy of, and although he’s not been pulling up tree’s the last few years, he was a good player at this level…for 2-3m could do a job for us.

    To be fair the strips imo are very canny, off course to a man I suspect everyone of us would rather not have Wonga emblazoned across the front.

    I tend to agree with Ed, I prefer the third strip to the away one but saying that considering the bold colours the away strip could have been disgusting but it’s actually ok.

    I think the contract runs until 2017.

    I probably shouldn’t comment as I’m not known for my sartorial elegance 🙂

    still like the half and half top from a preseason a few year ago.

  • 10 martoon // Jul 14, 2016 at 9:07 AM

    Springy – Yes my son has that one it is nice. As I remember it was limited edition available to members only.

  • 11 SPRINGY // Jul 14, 2016 at 9:11 AM

    yeah they played a preseason friendly game or some thing it looked really good….a bit different, but good.

    Is it true that junior sizes are wrong a free?
    If it is I might get the daughter an away top, I like the flame orange, it will stand out and make them easier to see each other when piling forward in numbers in the rain.
    Better having bolder colours than bloody silver/grey , I still say one of the reasons we did so well away from home the last time we were in the championship was due to the mustard and custard kit we wore, very easy to spot a team mate quickly wearing those kits.

    gimps – This got discussed a few days ago and the upshot was that some do and some don’t so best to check before you buy!

    Cheers martoon, I might just have a mooch next time I’m near a store.
