Newcastle United have cemented their close relationship with neighbours Gateshead Football Club after agreeing a partnership which will make football even more affordable for fans across Tyneside.

The clubs have teamed up to offer all Newcastle United members discounted entry to all of the Heed’s home Football Conference Premier League fixtures during the 2013/14 season, with an adult and junior able to see 90 minutes of action for just £11 combined per match.

On presenting a valid Newcastle United season ticket or membership card, Toon fans will be able to benefit from entry priced at just £9 for adults – a saving of £5 – while under-16s can already gain access for only £2 when accompanied by an adult.

Luton Town, Hereford United, Wrexham and Cambridge United will all be travelling to Gateshead International Stadium this season.

In addition to their close proximity, the clubs have a number of other close links, with current Newcastle assistant manager John Carver making in excess of 100 league appearances for Gateshead as a player and a number of current Magpies players, including Paul Dummett and James Tavernier, enjoying loan spells for the Conference club.

And with Gateshead playing their home games just three miles from St. James’ Park on the opposite side of the River Tyne, the Heed are now encouraging Toon fans to get behind their other local side and swell the numbers at the Conference Premier’s largest stadium.
