After celebrating a return to the Champions League, Newcastle United fans are eagerly awaiting the release of next season’s home shirt.
Concept kits currently doing the rounds on social media has Newcastle’s home and third kit displaying Middle Eastern company Emaar as the front-of-shirt sponsor. However, NewcastleWorld understands neither the kit or sponsor is accurate.
What Newcastle United’s 23-24 kit is expected to look like
Newcastle’s black and white home kit is set for a bit of a summer revamp with a change that could prove controversial for certain sections of the Magpies’ fanbase.
The club are yet to officially reveal what all three shirts for the 2023/24 season will look like, but NewcastleWorld understands white socks are set to feature in the home kit. This could prove a controversial move, given United traditionally go for black with white trim, rather than the other way around.
The home shirt will also feature a v-neck, with black panels, in a move away from this season’s round neck version.
The change and third shirts are set to have a familiar feel, with royal blue and a version of this campaign’s ‘Saudi shirt’ again set to go on sale.
The second kit is said to be the same colour scheme as this season, which proved popular with fans, while the third kit, which United wore during their recent win at Everton, is set to be reversed. This time it will be green, piped with white, although it is understood to have been designed with a pattern, rather than a singular colour block.
The green kit is also likely to prove popular with fans in North East, as well as punters in the Middle East, where owners, the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, are looking to grow the club’s profile and supporter-base.
A launch date of June 9, coinciding with the Blaydon Races and also the return home of city favourite Sam Fender, who will play the first of two gigs at St James’ Park that evening, has also been considered.
What’s the latest with the new sponsor?
While Newcastle are yet to announce a new front-of-shirt sponsor after negotiating an early exit with Fun88 earlier this season, NewcastleWorld understands discussions have taken place with three middle-eastern based companies.
