Hearts v Newcastle kicks off United’s pre-season schedule.

A week on Friday the first friendly takes place at Tynecastle and tickets have gone on sale on Monday morning.

Season ticket holders with 100 or more loyalty points can buy at the moment, with news to follow if that points requirement comes down.

With only 1,300 tickets available, you certainly can’t imagine it reaching pubic sale.

Newcastle United official announcement:

‘Tickets for Newcastle United’s first pre-season fixture of the summer away at Hearts will go on sale to season ticket holders with 100+ loyalty points from 10am.

The Magpies have been allocated just over 1,300 tickets for the trip to Tynecastle on Friday 14 July, with kick-off in Edinburgh scheduled for 7:45pm.

Tickets are priced at £20 for adults and £10 for over-65s and under-18s.

Supporters under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
