Newcastle Release New Home Kit For Next Season – Video


Newcastle have Just released their new home kit for next season in the Premier League.

The club have also announced the new kit sponsor – FUN88 – a Chinese gaming company founded in 2008.

This is what Newcastle have just published on the web-site

Far Eastern gaming company FUN88 has become the primary partner of Newcastle United.

As part of a three-year agreement, FUN88 will feature proudly on the club’s famous black and white stripes, starting with an historic season as the club celebrates its 125th anniversary.

The partnership was officially confirmed in a special online video, with legendary players and members of the current squad joining forces to display the club’s 2017-18 PUMA home kit.

FUN88 will be supporting fan initiatives in Newcastle, nationally and overseas, with more to be revealed in due course.

Founded in 2008, FUN88 has a significant online following in Asia and offers sports betting, live casinos, slots and keno games in multiple languages.

This is what Nathan Walker – Director at FUN88 had to say:

“We are looking forward to engaging with the club’s huge fan-base, both in Newcastle and worldwide.

“We are exited about the next three years and are looking forward to the 2017-2018 Premier League season.”

This is what Newcastle Managing Director lee Charnley said about the deal:

“We have worked closely with PUMA to deliver a design that celebrates our history.”

“The anniversary crest, simplicity of the design and the red numbers on the back of the shirt are just small touches that make it a special kit for a milestone season.”

Here’s the video Newcastle put out on the new strip.

Dwight Gayle seems delighted with the new kit

When I first saw Newcastle play back in 1949 the lads wore red numbers on the back of their shirts, so it’s nice to see them go back to that – I always thought the red numbers looked great!

    Does whoever (JfA?) did the season predictions thing last summer still have those in a spreadsheet somewhere and they coudl give us an update on who was closest to points total, top scorer, player of the season, etc.? That would be interesting to see.

    Mind, I’m sure I’m not close at all, but it would be cool to see what people voted for and how that lines up (or doesn’t) with how the season actually unfolded.

    Fun88 sounds more like a telephone sex line from the 1990’s than a gambling website.

    Beardsley and shearer would still score more than Riviere.

    @7 ha ha, very true. And to think, I thought Rivierre would be well suited to this division pre-season. Rafa took one look at him and sent him off on loan. So much for my precognitive skills.

    I like the strip very much. It’s a nice blend of modern with classic design. Well done imo. I will be buying one for sure. And hope many thousands do too now that we don’t have the Wonga nonsense.

    I’m a traditionalist and I think the new strip is superb. We just need a yellow and green away kit and I’ll be made up.Yellow jersey, green shorts, yellow socks with green turnovers.

    I like the new strip and crest. Must say I’m not too impressed with the new sponsor – too small minded in my opinion. Should be a mainstream global brand. Would hope that the 10-12M per season mentioned above is wrong. That is supposedly no improvement upon Wonga (~10M/year) or Virgin Money (~12M/year) – not sure but heard something of those figures.. The global reach of the EPL is much bigger than it was and the sponsor should reflect that – both in stature and price.

    I like the strip, but it’s a no from me on a sideways move on sponsor, double luck it may be but still tacky.

    No doubt the sponsor will be calling in pre-match each week to lodge their desired result 😉

    I agree on the Brazil away strip. One of the better ones. I still have a fondness for the bananas in pyjamas last championship one, and that dazzling full electric blue with the orange Adidas Streifen 🙂

    Decent kit apart from that logo on the front. It makes it look cheap. I don’t think those betting firms are much better than the likes of wonga to be totally honest. A sideways step like someone suggested.

    One day we might get an airline, motor company or someone who does something positive, but On line gambling is a cut above Shylocking & Usury – we are going up in the world!

    Why are people so precious about the sponsor.

    Name a club in England that has a good one.

    Necessary evil in this modern climate.

    The best I saw was this enormous fat Derby fan with “Just Eat” on the front of his shirt – obviously following orders – ha ha ha

    Perhaps what is significant about the new kit is that perhaps both club and Puma have listened to the fans to create a classic strip – maybe they got the ideas from this blog !
    Hope the keepers top is a real winner too.

    Sponsor – the word is FUN, which is good.

    Meanwhile Sunderland have a new shirt sponsor SadMBS which seems appropriate in a jokey sort of way.

    People are too casual about using their bodies as free advertising space

    Only a few players wearing the shirt in that photo shot so presumably they are definitely staying for next season.
    What about the others ?
    Any photos of Mitro in the strip .

    Jib I guess I was just hoping for something better than a double lucky happiness Chinese bookies with a logo designed by Nickelodeon, that’s all.

    I’d prefer a scaffolding firm or a mattress warehouse tbh

    The advert/logo is shit but not a bad strip at all . Is there a traditional number of stripes on the kit? These stripes look the same width as my old granddad style Toon jersey from Toffs
