Premier League. Magpies to wear one-off match shirts due to Brighton kit clash

09 Aug 22

Newcastle United will wear a special one-off Castore shirt for their Premier League game at Brighton on Saturday

The Premier League has ruled that the Magpies' three new 2022/23 Castore kits - black and white, navy blue and white respectively - will all clash too closely with Brighton's blue-and-white-striped home kit.

Accordingly, Newcastle United has gained special dispensation from the Premier League to wear a sky-blue jersey that features the silhouette of St. James' Park and several city landmarks - including the world-famous Tyne Bridge - teamed with black shorts and socks.

The shirt will ordinarily be worn as a warm-up shirt by the players on matchdays but will feature FUN88, and Premier League branding for the trip to the Amex Stadium.

The warm-up version of the shirt will be available to buy at soon.
