Newcastle Falcons today unveiled their new home shirt for the 2014-15 season.
Designed and manufactured by the club’s new official kit partner Gilbert Rugby, it sees an all-black shirt complemented with silver flashes on both sleeves. The kit is completed with black shorts and black socks, while the new Gilbert away and European shirts will be unveiled later in the summer.
The kit will see a return to the full ‘Newcastle Falcons’ logo on all shirts as well as on the full leisurewear range. The players’ authentic jersey (shown in the picture) will feature a performance neck-line whilst the supporters’ replica shirt will have a more traditional full collar. The Fairstone main sponsor logo will be on all playing and replica shirts with the playing shirts also carrying the associate sponsor logos for Hitachi (front neck and shoulders), Sintons Law (back shoulders) and the Aviva Premiership logo (left sleeve).
The home shirt is available in all sizes from aged 5-6 years to 3XL in adult sizing and is priced at £49.99 for adults/£39.99 children in the supporters replica and £69.99 adults/£59.99 children in the match authentic shirt.
Both shirts are available in short sleeve and any supporter pre-ordering by 23 May will also receive a free Falcons New Era Cap with every match authentic shirt. Those supporters ordering the replica shirt by this date will get to choose between either a free ticket to the Premiership Sevens on 2 August at Kingston Park or free postage for their new shirt. Furthermore 2014-15 season ticket holders will get an additional 10% off the price when ordering the new home shirt. Delivery on new shirts is expected in late August (date TBC).
Newcastle Falcons captain Will Welch said: “The lads are absolutely made up with the new shirts. Not only do they look modern but the fit and lightweight comfort of the shirt is a real positive. I can’t wait to be playing in the new Gilbert shirts next season and I’m sure all our supporters will be delighted with the design of our home kit.”
Shirts can be ordered direct from the club shop by either visiting or ringing 0191 214 2826. Kit can also be ordered on-line at www.falconskit.com
