Experience the thrill of walking out onto the pitch in one of the most magnificent stadiums in the premiership where previous legends like Alan Shearer, Malcolm Macdonald, Jackie Milburn, Pedro & Bez have all played.

All you have to do is order the New Newcastle United home shirt from midday on Friday, March 23 at nufc.co.uk or on 0870 442 1892 (Order by 20th April 2007 for Kit Launch Day delivery, terms & conditions apply) or purchase from any of the Official Club Stores from Launch Day Wednesday 2nd May to Sunday 6th May 2007, answer the question and tie breaker and you could be one of the team playing on Saturday 12th May 2007.

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 beeen 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.
