A remarkable update on the ticket sales for Newcastle v Huddersfield on Saturday.

At the weekend we found out that Newcastle had sold over 35,000 season tickets and then Huddersfield confirmed that they had sold their full 3,200 away allocation.

Now on Monday morning, Newcastle United have confirmed that there are only around 2,000 tickets left for this coming Saturday.

The total sales so far are over 50,000 and those remaining ticket will surely go this week, meaning Newcastle will open with a capacity crowd at St James Park.

I have gone to watch Newcastle United for many a year but out of all the things I have seen and experienced, just how would you explain this one to a neutral???

Newcastle United via Twitter:

TICKETS: We’re set for a SELL OUT on Saturday! We’ve passed 50,000 tickets sales already!’

To out this into perspective, Newcastle only attracted gates of 52,000/capacity against Bournemouth, Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Tottenham last season.
