While it might be a while before we see another edition of the Tyne-Wear derby, the matches between Newcastle United and Sunderland are indeed one of the most hotly-contested games in the country. Also called the North East derby, this is a local, inter-city rivalry between the two cities only 12 miles apart.
This particular football match is nothing more than an extension of the rivalry existing since the English Civil War when Newcastle and Sunderland found themselves at the opposing sides during the Jacobite risings.
Heading into the 2019/20 campaign, Newcastle have only one win more than their fiercest rivals. However, with Sunderland dwindling in the Football League One, it might be a while before we see these two lock horns in battle again.
Newcastle United is the byproduct of the merger between Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End from 1892. Despite their most recent decline, the Magpies are widely considered one of the biggest clubs in the country, boasting rich history and tradition.
Newcastle have never dropped below the second-tier of the English football system and boast four league titles – last of which was won in 1926/27. Newcastle have the same number of second division-trophies and no less than six FA Cup titles. As the outright winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2006, Newcastle United are enjoying a respectable international reputation.
Newcastle have always played their home games at the impressive St James’ Park, which takes over 52,000 people. Interestingly, the Magpies had originally worn red shirts with white shorts. It was in 1894 that Newcastle United introduced their second kit – the black and white version the club is known for today – as their primary colours, mainly to differentiate themselves from either of the two teams Newcastle originated from. Conveniently, these colours put them on an opposite end of the spectrum to their arch-rivals.
