Classic Football Shirts pop-up selling retro Newcastle United jerseys and more coming to Tyneside

Football fans in Newcastle can score a haul of retro kit at the pop-up store next month

The adored Classic Football Shirts store will set up shop in Newcastle next month to give Newcastle United supporters the chance to get their hands on some retro kit.

Football fans across the North East are set to flock to the pop-up store which has garnered a viral reputation since its launch back in 2006.

Classic Football Shirts has permanent stores in Manchester and London, as well as an online shop.

However, part of the shop's pull is the ability for fans to browse the rails in person and pick out wacky kits from teams across the leagues from all around the world.

Classic Football Shirts will be setting up a pop-up shop at Eldon Garden Shopping Centre from Thursday, April 7 to Saturday, April 16.

The shop will be open from 9 am until 6 pm on Monday to Wednesday and Friday to Saturday, with later hours from 9 am to 8 pm on Thursday.

Sunday opening hours will be 11 am until 5 pm with the shop open from 10 am to 6 pm on Good Friday.

For Newcastle United fans, a trip to see the Premier League fixture against Wolves on Friday, April 8 could be coupled with a trip to the store beforehand.

The Classic Football Shirts store will no doubt be stocking some Newcastle United classics, as well as much more.

After sharing the announcement on Tuesday evening, football fans in Newcastle were quick to share their excitement.
