It’s that time of year where ‘leaked’ images of Newcastle United’s new kit appear online.

With just three games left to play in the current Premier League campaign - where Eddie Howe’s side are fighting to secure Champions League qualification - fans are eager to see how next season’s famous black and white stripes will look.
Not only is there a big interest in the design, but also the front-of-shirt sponsor. The Magpies are searching for an eight-figure lucrative deal after negotiating an early exit with Fun88, worth just under £8million-a-year.
The leaked kit doing the rounds online is white on the arms and shoulders and displays ‘SAUDIA’, who were United’s Official Tour Airline Partner for their trip to Riyadh in December, as the front sponsor.
NewcastleWorld understands neither the design or sponsor is accurate having recently reported information about the home shirt.
What Newcastle United’s 23-24 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.
Although, no new sponsor has been agreed upon yet, so all club promotions have been done without Fun88 or any new branding. It’s thought a deal, with a number competing parties still at the table, will be agreed upon in the next few weeks.
