Newcastle United’s Future Generation

9 years ago

One thing that Newcastle are clearly getting right at the moment is great to see after so many years.

The ticketing policy is definitely paying dividends, both in terms of getting people into the ground and bringing in revenue.

One thing Mike Ashley understands is the relationship between price and sales.

Really good to see the Europa League tickets this Thursday night priced at £15 and £5 for kids (£20 and £10 for the Bar areas).

Obviously if you haven’t got the money it’s fair enough but if you can afford it and have said over the years ‘ridiculous ticket prices/not paying that/when I was a lad’, you really have no excuses – especially if you have kids.

No disrespect but it is £14 to watch Gateshead play Conference football, for a quid more you can watch European football AND get the kids in for only a fiver.

Yes it is an 8pm kick-off but they aren’t back at school until the following week.

You’ll never have a better, and cheaper, option of introducing the kids to watching Newcastle United.

This is not an advertising break on behalf of Mike Ashley, just a desire to see as many fans in the stadium on Thursday and finishing fifth means to me that these players deserve to see a decent crowd behind them.

***You also now have the chance to grab some of the best seats in the house (including the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Mackems etc.) even when the ticket office cupboard is bare, VIAGOGO allow season ticket holders to put up tickets for sale that they cannot use and other fans can then by them, click here for more details.
