Since it was revealed that Adidas would once again supply our kits, fans of the club have been waiting for a release date.

Now, it appears that a leak has occurred that will provide an answer to the issue – and it is due to Mike Ashley.

According to The Athletic’s Jacob Whitehead, legal procedures between Ashley and the club have confirmed the release date of next season’s uniform, with the former Toon owner disputing the rights to retail Toon kits in Sports Direct ahead of the 2024/25 season.

Adidas’ first uniform for Newcastle in 14 years is slated to be released on June 7th, 2024, two days before the Blaydon Races.

According to reports from late last year, the kits are expected to be popular among Geordies. The home shirt is projected to resemble similar to the kit worn from 2001 to 2003, with broader black and white stripes, a v-neck, and grey trimming.

The away shirt is reminiscent of the entertainers’ heyday, with Adidas planning to employ the maroon and navy stripes that have become so popular among supporters.

The third outfit is considered to be inspired by the Adidas EQT look. This is mostly white with black and green accents, however the most prominent element may be the Newcastle badge from the 1980s.

Finally, Adidas plans to release a remake kit based on the 1995-97 home shirt, which will feature long sleeves.
