Important Info For Newcastle Fans As Countdown begins

8 years ago

A busy time for everybody on Tyneside as the Premier League season is imminent and before that there are a host of pre-season friendlies, European draws and of course, St.James’ Park hosting the likes of Brazil in Olympic football matches.

So we thought we’d catch up with everything and help you to organise your football/Newcastle United diary.

From 24 July, Newcastle United’s Ticket Office at St. James’ Park will be selling remaining tickets for the Olympic football fixtures, payment by Visa or by cash. The Box Office will be open from 10am to 6pm on non match days, while on match days – 6 hours before  and up to one and half hours after games.

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.
