In the 2011–12 football season, English club Newcastle United F.C. competed in the Premier League for the second consecutive season. It was Newcastle United's 119th season of professional football.

In this season, Newcastle finished in fifth place in the Premier League, thus qualifying for the following season's Europa League. After going through their first 11 games unbeaten, Newcastle then failed to win in six consecutive games in November and December, mainly due to a spate of injuries among key defenders. The team recorded a resounding 3–0 home win over champions Manchester United in January and were hammered 5–0 by Tottenham Hotspur in February. The January transfer window saw the arrival of Senegalese striker Papiss Cissé, who quickly became a core part of the team, scoring 13 goals in 14 appearances.

This article shows statistics and lists details of all matches played by the club during the season.

Club[edit]

Team kit[edit]

Puma will be supplying the team kits for a final season, unless they extend their current contract. Puma will be designing three new kits for Newcastle. The initial kit sponsor was Northern Rock, who entered their ninth year of sponsoring the team. In 2011, a clause was triggered to end Northern Rock's deal early at the end of this season. On 1 January 2012, Virgin Money bought Northern Rock and on 4 January, Virgin replaced Northern Rock as sponsor, as well as signing a new two-year deal to sponsor the shirt.

(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (E) = Eliminated; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round.
Only applicable when the season is not finished:
(Q) = Qualified to the phase of tournament indicated; (TQ) = Qualified to tournament, but not yet to the particular phase indicated; (RQ) = Qualified to the relegation tournament indicated; (DQ) = Disqualified from tournament.
