Newcastle United have announced that Wigan away tickets are no longer on sale online.

However, Newcastle fans can still purchase them in person at the United ticket office, or over the phone.

This match is a rare treat for Newcastle supporters who aren’t season ticket holders or members, with tickets going on general sale.

Receiving an allocation of 4,800 tickets for a midweek match 11 days before Christmas has meant that all Newcastle fans can get a ticket, if they want one.

NUFC have revealed that already around 4,500 tickets have been sold with only ‘a few hundred’ remaining.

Newcastle United Official Announcement:

‘Tickets for Newcastle’s Sky Bet Championship game at Wigan Athletic are now on general sale.

The club was given 4,800 seats for the game on Wednesday, 14th December, and they are on general sale at a maximum of four per person.

However, due to the close proximity of the game there will be no more online sales. Supporters can buy tickets in person from St. James’ Park or by telephone (0844 372 1892 – calls cost 7p per minute plus your standard network charge). They can be collected from window nine at the Wigan Athletic ticket office at the North-West corner of the DW Stadium.

They are priced at £25 for adults, £22 for seniors (65 and above), £20 for under-18s and £10 for under-11s. There will also be a £1 booking fee per ticket.

Only a few hundred tickets now remain so fans are advised to purchase in advance to avoid disappointment.

Supporters who buy concessionary tickets are advised that they should carry ID with them at the game. Should any supporter be found trying to use a concessionary ticket to which they are not entitled to, the ticket will be seized without recompense.

Anyone under the age of 11 should be accompanied by an adult.

Please note that tickets purchased during the general sale period will not accrue loyalty points; these are awarded only during the season ticket holder priority booking phase.’
