Newcastle United may be near the bottom of the Premier League this season, but they’re at the top of the league in terms of their commercial department.

The Tyneside club are the first to make their new home shirt for the 2009-10 season available. In fact, it went on sale today.

The new Newcastle United football shirt, at first glance, doesn’t look much different than the current strip. But on closer analysis, the front of the new shirt now has three black stripes instead of two on the current one (there are also black stripes along the front side of the shirt). Plus, the shirt features a V-neck collar instead of a more traditional one currently worn.

Newcastle’s home shirt for the 2009-10 season looks more modern and much closer to the style we expect from Adidas.
