Newcastle United unveiled their new 2007-2008 home kit a while ago and they wanted to give you the opportunity to live the dream .

Now Newcastle United have unveiled their stylish new change kit for the 2007/08 season. The light blue kit will be worn by the Magpies next term, and here on nufc.co.uk we've got exclusive pictures of Joey Barton and Michael Owen wearing the kit - plus Shay Given in his new-look goalkeeping gear.

The kit will be available to pre-order from 11am today and will go on sale on July 26 meaning fans will be able to wear it at St. James' Park that night when Big Sam's team play Glasgow Celtic in a pre-season friendly.

And anyone who pre-orders now through NUFC Direct will also qualify for a behind-the-scenes stadium tour at St. James' Park (terms and conditions apply).Below are some great shots of the boys modelling the new kit.

Newcastle United kit history

Newcastle originally wore red and white stripes when the East End and West End clubs unified, continuing the tradition of the defunct Newcastle East End. To avoid confusion with their neighbours Sunderland, Newcastle changed to their now familiar black and white stripes in 1904. Ever since then, this basic colour design of the home kit has remained steadfastly unchanged, although the sock colour has occasionally changed from black to white over the years - notably during the Ruud Gullit era, who believed white was lucky. They have also sometimes worn white shorts when playing other stripe-wearing teams who also wear black shorts.

Conversely, Newcastle's change or away colours have been very inconsistent, with no one particular colour being more consistently recognisable than others. In the 1970s and 1980s, the change kits were mostly yellow and green, quite similar to Norwich City's home kit - these colours are often seen on Malcolm Macdonald. Since the 1990s, the away strip has often been some shade of blue. Other common away colours are all black, all white, yellow or grey. The most unusual away colour is arguably the maroon and blue horizontal hoop colours from the 1996-97 season. These colours later returned for the 2006-07 season.

Newcastle's European shirt colours have not been consistent. Some recent examples of colours used by the club in European competition are; all yellow with black shorts, all grey with black trim and most recently sky blue and black.

Newcastle's shirt sponsors were Scottish & Newcastle Breweries from 1982 - 1986. In 1986, Greenalls took over and ran until 1990 when S & N returned for a ten year stint. In 2000, NTL took over for three years, and then the club was sponsored by Northern Rock. Newcastle's home and away kit is currently manufactured by Adidas and in the past has been manufactured by Admiral, Bukta, Umbro and Asics.
