Newcastle United today unveiled their new home shirt for the 2012-13 season.
The Tyneside club wore their new home kit for the first time in a friendly, which they lost 1-0 in Germany against third division side Chemnitzer.
Newcastle’s new home shirt is designed by Puma, and features the famous black and white stripes that Newcastle United have won for decades. Instead of the racing-car stripe design that Newcastle wore last season, the club and Puma have returned to a more traditional design. The differences are that the collar is white, while the Puma logo appears to be in gold.
Overall, I like the design of the new Newcastle United home shirt, but it does remind me more of Juventus than previous Newcastle United shirt designs.
It’s clean, classy and should be a big hit at St. James’s Park this season.
What are your thoughts regarding Newcastle’s new home kit?
