Newcastle United Football Club is an English football team based in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East of England. Founded in 1892, the team resulted from a merger between Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End football clubs. It has called St. James’ Park its home ground since its inception.
Newcastle United is one of the most successful teams in the Premier League. They boast four League titles, six FA Cups, and the FA Charity Shield in their trophy cabinet. The team’s pinnacle came between 1904 and 1910 when it clinched three League titles and an FA Cup. Their last major domestic trophy was in 1955.
Newcastle struggled to recapture their former success as the team was relegated from the Premier League in 2009 and 2016. However, they managed to earn promotion back to the Premier League in 2010 and 2017.
In October 2021, a consortium led by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund acquired the football club. The takeover aimed to bring Newcastle to its former glory.
Newcastle is ranked the 20th richest football club in the world. Under the new management, the club has made several notable acquisitions, including Bruno Guimaraes, Sven Botman, and Kieran Trippier.
The team ranked 12th in the Premier League during the 2020-21 season under manager Steve Bruce. Subsequently, Steve left the club, making way for Eddie Howe as the new manager.
The following season, the team finished in 17th place but managed to avoid relegation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of the 2023 season, Newcastle sit 13th in the Premier League and are regarded as one of the strong contenders in the UEFA Champions League qualification.
