Newcastle United Football Club represents Newcastle upon Tyne in England's top tier domestic football league- the Premier League. Founded in 1892, Newcastle host their home matches at St. James' Park. Newcastle has been a member of the Premier League for all but three years of the competition's history, and have never dropped below English football's second tier since joining the Football League in 1893.

Newcastle can boast a trophy haul of 4 league titles, 6 FA Cups and a Charity Shield, as well as the an Inter- Cities Fairs Cup and the UEFA Intertoto Cup, making them the ninth most successful footballing club in England in terms of trophies won.

Suffering relegation in 2009, and in 2016, Newcastle has always rebounded back into the Premier League at the first time of asking as Championship winners. Newcastle maintain a fierce, long-standing rivalry with cross-river rivals Sunderland, with whom they contest the Tyne–Wear derby for supremacy of the northeast of England.. The club's iconic traditional colours are black and white striped shirts, black shorts and black socks.
