Alleged New Newcastle Kit Sparks Outrage

Will Newcastle United wear the national colors of Saudi Arabia next season? The alleged new away kit is causing criticism - but not only.

Even before Newcastle United unveiled their 2022/23 workwear kit, the Premier League club had already reaped a storm of indignation. On Friday night, pictures appeared on the Internet that are supposed to show the new away jersey – in unusual colors.

If the reports are true, "it will show the UK's determination to "clean up" its brutal, blood-soaked human rights record" through " sportswashing," Felix Jakens, UK representative for human rights organization Amnesty International, told the Guardian.

Many fans criticize, others praise the "brilliant move"

The Premier League has always insisted that Saudi Arabia has no control over Newcastle. But for Jakens the new kit would be "clear evidence that the regime is using Newcastle to project a positive image".

While numerous Newcastle fans criticized the supposed new away outfit, others reacted benevolently: It will boost jersey sales in Saudi Arabia and is therefore a "brilliant move", according to social networks, among others.
