Newcastle United have unveiled their new away kit and goalkeeper kit for the 2008/09 season made by Adidas. Conversely, Newcastle United's change or away colours have been very inconsistent, there is no set in stone standard and the club changes the away colours often, but most commonly it has been a shade of blue (since the 1990s) or yellow.
The yellow kit was especially common throughout the 1970s and 1980s and featured a green or blue trim, depending on the season; a yellow and green striped away kit even appeared in 1988—1990. Other common away colours have been grey, all black, all white and green. The most unusual away kit was likely the maroon and navy blue horizontal hoop colours from the 1995–96 and 2006–07 seasons, it was a tribute to West End.
The new 08/09 purple kit will be worn by the Geordies next term, meanwhile Michael Owen and keeper Shay Given modelling the new-look gear.
