Newcastle’s sponsors Sela are planning on creating a one-off kit for the Magpies to wear for their game against Tottenham.

The Saudi-based events company will donate their front-of-shirt space on Newcastle’s kit to a charity, who will be named closer to the clash on Saturday April 13.

Newcastle’s kit will have a new twist for their next home game

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who also report that discussions regarding the move have been going on for several weeks.

Sela are said to be keen to give the chosen charity as much publicity as possible, and the televised clash against Spurs, who are also battling for a European spot, has been picked with this in mind.

They will also ensure additional tie-ins related to their chosen cause will be visible on the match day, too.

Since signing a £25million-per-season deal with the Magies last year, Sela have wanted their partnership with the club to be fan focused.

As well as looking to put a charity front and centre of Newcastle’s Castore kit, they have also organised other initiatives over the course of the campaign.

Most notably, Sela put on a drone display for the 4-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at St James’ Park in October.

Free scarves were also given to supporters for their 2-0 win in the Tyne-Wear derby against Sunderland in January, as the sides faced off for the first time in almost eight years in the FA Cup third round.

A Sela-sponsored ‘Howay’ bus also operates on away days to take fans to and from Newcastle’s clashes on the road.

Newcastle will have just their third different shirt sponsor in seven years, with Fun88 being there from 2017 to 2023

Eddie Howe‘s side are currently eighth in the league following their 1-1 draw with Everton on Tuesday, missing out on grabbing all three points after giving away a late penalty.

The clash against fifth-placed Tottenham will be key in Newcastle’s chances of securing European football next term.

Meanwhile, the Magpies have been warned not to sell ‘their Thierry Henry’, Alexander Isak amid concerns they may have to in order to stay in line with Financial Fair Play.
