Newcastle Reveal New Crest – Home Strip Released Soon

Newcastle will wear an updated crest for next season as we celebrate 125 years as a football club, having been founded back in 1892 (I remember it well) when Newcastle East End FC joined together with Newcastle West End FC to unite the two clubs – and we were aptly called Newcastle United.

And we assume once the new strip is unveiled the shirt sponsor will also be unveiled and it will be interesting to see who it is – but it will be much better than Wonga – that’s for sure.

Anniversary crest for next season

Here’s the Official Club Statement just issued:

Newcastle United has revealed the commemorative crest that will be used to honour the club’s 125th anniversary season.

The gold and silver design is based on the Magpies’ existing crest – itself based on the Newcastle upon Tyne coat of arms – and a golden adornment has been added to mark the milestone year.

The new variation will appear on the club’s classic black and white stripes during the 2017/18 season and will also feature on away and third kits throughout the club’s anniversary campaign.

Newcastle United was formed in the summer of 1892 when Newcastle East End absorbed the assets of city rivals Newcastle West End, including the lease of St. James’ Park.

A new name for this stronger, unified club was chosen and ‘Newcastle United’ was officially recognised that same year on 9th December.

The Magpies’ new 2017/18 PUMA home kit will be unveiled soon.

One interesting thing is that clubs are now allowed to have more than one shirt sponsor in the Premier League.

Sponsors can have their logo on the sleeves and it’s another way to make money.

How long before the Premier League has a third sponsor – for the socks?

And yes – another one for the shorts.

It’s all about the money these days – as we all know.

That anniversary crest looks very good – it will go well with the Premier League crest on the new Newcastle United shirts.


Howay The Lads!!

    lochinvar…I was thinking about that too. Do you think the sponsor is all tied up, or do you think it’s dependent on when promotion is secured?

    I can’t imagine the deal could be the same if we were to be a Championship club again.

    Could be nice that hoping for red numbers on the back

    Sponsor is likely a Chinese firm isn’t it?

    I suspect the new sponsor will be yet another gambling website, as most football clubs seem to have that now. Whatever it is, it will never be as funny as Sunderland being sponsored by a 2nd hand car dealer a few years back.

    Is this the year we see sports direct on the sleeve’s??

    Fattie needs to pay an honest price if so .

    We could build a much better squad if we sold the advertising instead of giving it away.

    I really really hope not, was hoping to see an end to that dross. Can you imagine the lift to the crowd if it was taken out of the stadium.

    If I remember correctly they only came to be there until a paying sponsor came forward.

    Don’t mind it if the club gets the money but the latest accounts show no payment from Tat direct.

    Take into account anything you now buy from the clubshop
    Is also tat .com

    We could earn transfer money from this and we don’t atm.

    I’m sure I read somewhere the free advertising was used as repayment of his ‘interest free loan’? But I don’t recall seeing the loan being reduced at all so I don’t know how much truth there is in that,

    The club had stated there’s an “arms length” agreement is coming. (its been delayed by penfold hard to cross line imho)


    What makes ou think the new sponsor is from china ??

    Penfold was there but I haven’t heard links to sponsorship

    Classy touch getting the 125 years part on, just fingers crossed it’s not ruined with a sports direct badge on it somewhere too.

    Sure I read that we had been over to China looking for a new sponsor so might not be something we know well but long as the money’s right then I’m sure we will all be happy. Also expect we’ve got a sponsor sorted but the payments we receive will be more if we back in the premiership where we belong.
