Fulham away tickets have now gone on sale to Newcastle fans.
With 18 days to go until the season kicks off at Craven Cottage, NUFC season ticket holders with 25 loyalty points can buy now.
On Wednesday the criteria changes to all season ticket holders, then next Monday (25 July) they become available to members as well.
Sadly, it appears that the club are persisting with not allowing supporters to buy a single away ticket unless they first buy a £35 year’s membership.
Something that won’t exactly help the support for the team when we are playing Wigan away on a Tuesday night in December or Norwich (also on a Tuesday night) in February.
However, good news with this Fulham trip for Newcastle exiles without memberships because they have a ‘neutral’ section next to the Newcastle away one and whenever NUFC (or other well supported clubs) play there, it is basically an extension of the away end. Contact Fulham direct to buy tickets for the neutral section
Official Club Statement on Fulham Away Tickets
‘Tickets for Newcastle United’s first game of the 2016/17 Sky Bet Championship season, at Fulham, are now on sale to season ticket holders with 25 or more loyalty points.
Rafa Benitez’s Magpies travel to Craven Cottage on Friday, 5th July (ED: Club’s mistake not ours! Game is Friday 5 August), for a 7.45pm kick-off, and will be looking to get the new campaign off to a winning start.
Season ticket holders with 25 or more loyalty points can now secure their seat, and from Wednesday (20th July) all season ticket holders can purchase tickets.
Subject to availability, tickets will go on sale to Members on Monday, 25th July.
Newcastle have been given an allocation of 2,750 seats for the game, with tickets priced at £25 for adults, £20 for over-65s and 18-21 year-olds, and £15 for under-17s.
For anyone purchasing on the day of the game, there will be a increase to £30 for adult tickets and £25 for over-65s and 18-21 year-olds.
Fans who wish to travel to this fixture are advised to apply for tickets as early as possible so that the Club can work with Fulham to service demand.
Supporters who buy concessionary tickets are advised that they should carry ID with them at the match. Any supporter purchasing at the incorrect age band risks non entry on matchday as upgrading at the visiting club is not necessarily permitted on the day.
Age bands away from home vary on a game-by-game basis and do not necessarily mirror your age band held at Newcastle United. It is essential that the correct age band is selected at the time of purchase to prevent any disappointment on the day at the visiting club.
As with last season, in order to be sure of sitting together season ticket holders and Members must be registered in an away travel group before purchasing tickets (maximum of ten persons per one group).’
