  • Back in 1892 at the beginning of Newcastle United, the players didn’t wear today’s famous black and white stripes. They used to wear red and white in the beginning.
  • Newcastle United took part in the first-ever Football League match to be played under floodlights when they faced Portsmouth at Fratton Park in February 1956.
  • During the early years of St James’ Park, there was a drop of 18 feet from the north to the south goal, while local butchers were still able to graze their animals on the pitch before being led to slaughter.
  • From 1892 to 1929, Newcastle United’s team was selected by a committee, whose secretary had the same powers and role as a manager has today.
  • Other than the seven teams who have been involved in every Premier League season, Newcastle United are the team to have played the most games in the top flight since its inaugural campaign.
