The kit manufacturers at Puma recently unveiled a brand new design for the Newcastle United home kit 2015 - 2016. The shirt mostly maintains the black and white vertical striping of the club's usual home shirts. However, with some striking bright blue detailing-including diagonal blue lines running across the vertical black stripes of the shirt-the Newcastle 2015 2016 home jersey also bears a more modern flare than its predecessors. You can order the new football shirt design today, from the Soccer Box online store!

A Quest for Redemption 

The Magpies launched the 2015 2016 home jersey ahead of their final match of the 2014 2015 season, which took place on May 24th on the club's own St. James' Park. The new home shirt was shown off in an official video from the club, which featured 33-year-old captain and defender Fabricio Coloccini wearing the new jersey, shorts, and socks for the first time.

Since Newcastle United ended the 2014 2015 campaign with a home game, they decided to don the brand new 2015 2016 home shirt. The decision to swap the 2014 2015 kit for the fresher, newer jersey showed that the Magpies were ready to look forward to the future, instead of dwelling on the past. And since the 2014 2015 season has been disastrous for the club, players and fans alike could hardly be any more eager to move on to the 2015 2016 season.

When the Magpies donned the 2015 2016 home jersey for their season-ending May 24th match, though, they were fighting for more than just a positive end to a poor soccer season. Indeed, going into the fixture (against West Ham United), Newcastle were in 17th place on the 2014 2015 Premier League table-just on the edge of the red zone. They needed a win to escape the threat of relegation. Luckily, their brand new home shirt seemed to deliver some much-needed good luck.

Indeed, with a 2-0 win against West Ham, Newcastle United not only collected their first Premier League victory since February, but they also guaranteed that they would get to wear their new Puma home kit in the Premier League next year-instead of in the Football League Championship.

Needless to say, the Magpies will be on a quest for redemption in 2015 2016, after their 15th place finish this season. Pick up a new Newcastle United home jersey 2015 2016 at Soccer Box to support the football club and help them turn things around.

The 2015 2016 Newcastle Home Shirt: Already out of Date? 

While the 2015 2016 Newcastle United home shirt helped the Magpies turn over a new leaf and end the 2014 2015 season on a high note, not all supporters of the club are fans of the new football kit. On the contrary, probably the biggest topic of discussion surrounding the launch of the new jersey is that the design is already arguably out of date.

The issue with the kit pertains to, a money lending company that has been Newcastle United's kit sponsor since 2013. Mere hours before the Magpies launched the Newcastle United home jersey 2015 2016, Wonga revealed something new of their own: a redesigned logo.

Wonga's new logo is quite attractive, featuring the company's brand name set against a white background, with the letters a blur of blue and sea-foam green. It's the kind of logo that would look great on a soccer jersey. The only problem is, Newcastle and kit manufacturer Puma didn't get the memo, and the 2015 2016 Magpies jersey features the old, out-of-date Wonga logo instead. (The old logo is Wonga's brand name in white lettering, set against a blue background.)
