Newcastle United make massive blunder with new 2015/16 kit

Published Add your comment

Newcastle United, along with a few other clubs including Crystal Palace and Southampton, released their new home kit today.

Unlike Newcastle, however, these two clubs got their sponsors logo correct.

It may not be common knowledge to us all, but the ever controversial, Wonga, recently changed their logo and although not all of us know about it, you'd think a club who have a partnership with them would probably have noticed though wouldn't you? Newcastle didn't.

Newcastle United's new home kit has been widely accepted as it is quite an attractive design, but with the wrong logo on it.

It remains to be seen whether or not the aesthetics of the kit will be ruined by the new logo or whether it will be better.

Sums up their season

Newcastle have announced that the shirt will go up for sale on Thursday from 9am.

The team will also wear the kit for Sunday's 'Survival Sunday' clash with West Ham United. It will be interesting to see whether or not the team wear a kit with the new or old WONGA logo on it.

Also, people who pre-ordered the kit, when they get it delivered, will it have the old or new logo?

These are the questions that need to be asked. We don't even know if they are going to bother changing it. 

Interesting new design

The Mirror reports that the new kit shows a hint of blue to emulate that of the famous scroll underneath the Newcastle crest. There is also a blue tint underneath the company's logo.

The sleeves are predominantly white and feature a new “formstripe” design, which removes a traditional shoulder seam “to improve the fit and allow unrestricted movement.”  

The sponsorship has been widely resented in any case, so I'm sure many Newcastle fans wouldn't mind seeing the logo change to something completely different.

The Payday loan service are not very popular amongst any demographic so it could be a good call on the clubs part to end the partnership.

They need to do anything they can do try and regain some respect from their fans. 

Does this mistake just sum up your season, Newcastle fans? Give us YOUR opinion in the comment box below!
