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.
Fans can pre-order the kit now via http://www.NUFCdirect.com ahead of a general release date of Thursday 8th May 2014. The new away kit will be worn by the first team in the club’s final league game against Liverpool on Sunday 11th May and throughout the 2014/15 campaign.
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.”
Featuring all of the technological excellence expected from a PUMA kit, the innovative new replica strip incorporates PUMA dryCELL technology for improved player performance.
PUMA dryCELL technology wicks and manages moisture away from the skin’s surface, enabling the wearer to stay comfortable and dry throughout the game. PUMA dryCELL helps every player and fan keep their cool through game time, added time, any time, every time.
Ruth How, PUMA UKIB Head of Marketing, said: “We’re extremely proud of the new away kit. Our design team were inspired by the club’s history, and their ambition to enhance player performance. ”
