The Mag

The Mag is an independent magazine written by and for the supporters of Newcastle United.

The first issue of the Mag came off the press in 1988 after its founders were inspired by the general football fanzine, When Saturday Comes. The Mag became the first Newcastle United fanzine. Over the years, other Newcastle United fanzines followed - The Number Nine, Talk of the Tyne, Half Mag Half Biscuit and Toon Army News to name just some. However The Mag has outlived all of these publications, proving a popular read with a large number of Newcastle United supporters worldwide, and a well-respected publication throughout the field of football fanzines.

In recent years, The Mag has spawned a spin off fanzine called True Faith which takes a slightly different look at Newcastle United to The Mag by focusing on nostalgia, memories, music, fashion and fan culture.

In January 2006 the Mag celebrated its 200th issue, at the same time as Alan Shearer scored his 200th competitive Newcastle United goal, equalling Jackie Milburn's club record.
