Newcastle have revealed their new PUMA away kit for next season and it will be worn for the first time in the final away game with Liverpool. The Magpies shirt harks back to away strips worn by some Toon legends.
Newcastle’s 2014/15 PUMA away kit has been inspired by the away shirts worn by some of the city’s most famous sons, with Peter Beardsley, Chris Waddle and Paul Gascoigne all sporting a similarly eye-catching style in the mid 1980’s.
The new kit is all silver with black trim on the shirt, shorts and socks. ‘Newcastle United Football Club 1892’ wording is featured throughout the kit as a pinstripe detail, with additional club accents positioned on the upper back neck, waist-band of the shorts and socks.
Stuart Middlemiss, director of retail, Newcastle United, said: “The new away kit is a celebration of one our most iconic shirt designs, with some of our most famous players in the modern era wearing the all silver kit between 1983 and 1988. I’m sure it will be extremely popular and that our players and supporters will be as equally proud to wear it.”
The innovative new replica strip incorporates PUMA dryCELL technology for improved player performance. It manages moisture away from the skin’s surface, enabling the wearer to stay comfortable and dry throughout the game.
