The news from the media this week suggests that the acquisition of large amounts of money at Newcastle United appears to lead to an imminent design change in the club’s jersey.
Everything changes in St. James’
Of course, the news that shook the foundations of English football to the core came last Thursday.

Fun88 on departure?
Since then, the momentous change of hands at St. James ‘Park has sparked understandable jubilation from Newcastle’s loyal fan base, and the Magpies’ loyalists have long been clamoring for a fit owner to reestablish a club of such unquestionable magnitude among the soccer giants of the Premier League. .
The incoming Saudi Investment Fund is known to boast stratospheric wealth in the region of £ 320bn, with financial flex via a transfer market therefore expected to occur from January.
However, as outlined above, staffing changes, both on the management and player fronts, seem to be far from the only changes to Tyneside in the near future.
This comes with club field attire that is expected to be affected as well.
According to a reliable Footy Headlines report (citing Magpie Media), Yasir Al-Rumayyan and company. they are “currently exploring options to purchase the remainder of the Fun88 jersey sponsorship.”
Fun88 has acted as Newcastle’s sponsor since 2017 and signed a new deal with the club last year.
However, with betting in Saudi Arabia, fans of the country will only be able to buy Magpies jerseys without any sponsor at the moment.
In turn, the new team in charge of St. James has started looking for alternative deals, with Saudia, formerly known as Saudi Arabian Airlines, a source who was considered a possible sponsor of the jersey in the future.
