Buying Newcastle United Tickets Getting Tricky

9 years ago

It is a real honour St.James’ Park hosting the Olympics but  for the best part of two weeks make sure you don’t have a wasted journey up to the ground.

To purchase Newcastle United related tickets (including season tickets) don’t go to the St.James’ Park ticket office on days when Olympic football matches are taking place (dates below). Instead you’ll have to visit or  call 0844 3721892.

The Box Office will be open as normal at the club store level one on days when no Olympic matches and following the final Olympic game to be played at the stadium.

On Olympic match days the Box Office will be open 6 hours before and up to one and half hours after games BUT ONLY for Olympic tickets, not Newcastle United ones.

Tickets for the group stage matches cost £20, £30 and £40: for the quarter finals, they cost £20, £40 and £50; children under 16 can pay their age, and there are £16 tickets for people aged 60 and over: tickets are day tickets, so on the days when there are two games, the tickets allow the ticket-holder to see both matches.
