Newcastle’s visit to Leicester has now been moved for Live TV and whilst the date of Saturday 2 May remains the same, the kick-off is now 12.45pm instead of 3pm – the game to be shown on BT Sport.
In the typical crazy world of the Premier League, Leicester tickets went on sale to Newcastle season ticket holders on Tuesday, with no minimum number of loyalty points required.
So no doubt a number of Newcastle supporters will already have booked trains etc assuming the date was in no danger of being changed.
From Monday 13 April, members can start applying for them.
As with all other away matches, Newcastle fans have to pay for a £35 membership before being allowed to apply for any away tickets (or some home ones now, as in the recent cases of Arsenal and Manchester United which ended up with thousands of empty seats).
The tickets are priced at £35 for adults, £31 for over 65s and under-22s, £22 for under 18s, £9 for under 12s and £7 for under 8s.
The ticket information also contained a couple of warnings…..
Under 13s are not allowed to enter Leicester’s stadium without an adult (a new one on me).
Whilst also no children under the age of two are allowed into the King Power stadium, presumably with or without an adult…
