New NUFC Home Strip 16/17 | Puma Newcastle United Kit 2016-17

This is the new NUFC kit 2016/17, Newcastle United’s new home top for the upcoming Championship season. Made by Puma, the strip was unveiled by new Magpies signing Dwight Gayle on July 1, 2016. The official launch date for the kit will be July 8, 2016.

Newcastle were relegated from the Premier League to the Championship along with Norwich and Villa, but will be aiming for an immediate return to the top flight after managing to convince Rafa Benitez to stay and coach them in English football’s second tier.

The new shirt features the club’s signature stripes (which go all the away round), paired with black shorts and hooped socks. Wonga remain principal shirt sponsors.

    Just get shot of Wonga as a sponsor & you have a very classic 90’s style looking Newcastle United home kit
    if I was a member of the Toon Army
    would I buy this no for two simple reasons & I think you can have a good guess what they are.

    Interesting to see that there are stripes on the back, whereas previous pictures showed a plain black panel. Maybe the older pictures were designed with the PL’s new rules about striped backs in mind, but now they’ve been relegated (and the FL is more liberal about stripes) they’ve changed their mind. Will be interesting to see what colour numbers they use though, the new EFL font doesn’t come in gold so they’ll have to use red or blue which will be jarring.

    Unless they’re doing what Sunderland are doing and using plain backs for the players’ shirts and striped backs for the replicas.

    A pity about Wonga really. I know it can’t be changed, but this shirt would sell heaps more if they didn’t have the Wonga logo on it.

    I noticed that bit about the stripes too.

    Looks like the PL have a law requiring plain backs only for better visibility. Pity because stripes on the back are a pretty integral part of the history of many a club.

    Shame they didn’t have a shirt that actually fitted the player who bothered to rock up to the photo shoot.
