Newcastle Falcons team thirsty for more titles
The Newcastle Falcons is an English Rugby Club from Newcastle that plays in the English Premiership domestic league.

Origins & Rugby History of Newcastle Falcons
Newcastle Falcons started life as the Gosforth football club in 1877 and went on to win back-to-back John Player Cup titles from '75-'77 before the club moved to Kingsford Park and changed its name to Newcastle Gosforth. The 1996 season witnessed more changes as the team became the Newcastle Falcons and switched its kit colours from green and white to the current black and white, under which the team would manage to win its lone championship in 1998. Newcastle Falcons compete with clubs such as Leinster Rugby, Saracens and London Wasps in European rugby contests. A change in ownership in 1999 was followed by two victories in the Powergen Cup, with wins over Harlequin FC in 2001 and Sale Sharks in 2004 when legendary fullback Jonny Wilkinson played for the Falcons. Wilkinson would go on to become the club's all-time scorer with 1,489 points. Catch the new legends in the making. Newcastle Falcons tickets are ready now to buy or sell via StubHub.
Watch the Falcons play at Kingston Park
The turn of the century was not so kind to the Newcastle Falcons, with the team recording a series of mediocre finishes sandwiched around the 2011 season, when it won the RFC Championship title. The situation greatly improved in the latter half of the 2010s, with the team ending the 2017 season in the top five, helped in large part by a series of world-class signings, all of whom were veterans of world rugby competitions. Kingston Park, with only 10,000 seats, is an intimate setting for a rugby game, placing fans very close to the centre of the action. This team can be very proud of its fan base, which continues to steadily increase despite a lack of silverware. Rivalry games versus Sale Sharks or Edinburgh Rugby are always memorable matchdays at Kingston Park, but "The Big One" against Northampton Saints, which is played at St. James' Park, is a very special treat.
