The ‘Boycott Spurs’ campaign is gathering pace, certainly if you judge it by how much talk there is about it.
The cruch obviously comes on the actual day, are you in or out?
Whilst season ticket holders will have paid for their seat whether they use it or not, it looks like those who have already bought single tickets will be able to choose.
Checking out the terms and conditions of sale for home tickets at St. James’ Park, it appears that fans can get a refund just so long as they get the ticket back to the Newcastle United box office at leeast 72 hours before the Spurs kick-off a week on Sunday.
Which means that supporters with single tickets have a deadline of up to 4pm on Thursday 16 April to get their money back, rather than be stuck with a seat ticket that they might not now want to use.
This is what appears on the NUFC website:
HOME MATCH TICKET TERMS & CONDITIONS OF USE
4 Changes to Dates, Refunds & Exchanges
4.1 No guarantees can be given by the Club that the Match will take place at a particular time or on a particular date. Subject to clause 4.2, below, the Club reserves the right to reschedule any Match without notice and without any liability whatsoever.
4.2 In the event of the postponement or abandonment of the Match (or if the Match has, for any reason to be played out of view of the public), subsequent detail will be posted on www.nufc.co.uk . The Club will have no further liability whatsoever, including (but not limited to) any indirect or consequential loss or damage, loss of enjoyment or travel/accommodation costs.
4.3 In order to obtain a refund, the Home Match Ticket must be returned to the Club’s ticket office no later than 72 hours before the commencement of the match. A refund will only be issued on production of identification that the individual requesting the refund is the person to whom the Home Match Ticket was originally sold. For the avoidance of doubt, the final decision belongs to the ticket office manager.
