A little bit surprising to find out how few Fulham fans have bought tickets for Saturday’s match.
Other similar or smaller sized clubs (such as their London rivals Brentford) have brought the full, or close to, 3,200 allocation to Tyneside.
However, the West London club have revealed that only 1,350 Fulham fans have so far committed and they are urging others to join them before Friday’s deadline.
Fulham FC via Twitter:
“Join the 1,350 Fulham fans travelling to Newcastle by purchasing your ticket before 3pm Friday."
In contrast Newcastle United have announced on Wednesday morning that there is only ‘limited availability’ in the home sections, with a quick look on the club’s ticketing website suggesting that there is going to be a definite sellout by Newcastle fans.
Newcastle United via Twitter:
“There’s limited availability remaining for Saturday’s game against Fulham.”
Fulham were in the Premier League for 13 years in a row with Newcastle until the Cottagers were relegated in 2014 but you would have thought they’d bring more supporters than that.
A Saturday 3pm kick-off, train up from Kings Cross and possible night or two staying over, plus Fulham are fighting to get in the play-offs – currently five points off sixth but with a game in hand.
