Newcastle United Sell Tickets On The Cheap To Civil Servants For Liverpool Match
If you fancy going to the home match against Liverpool, then ticket prices start at £42 for an adult.
It is always one of the more popular matches and usually sold out so no surprise to see it costs more than when the likes of Stoke and Fulham are in toon.
The thing is that if you don’t have a season ticket and want to go to the Liverpool match, maybe you are back home just for the weekend and live away, you’ll have a long wait for them to go on general sale.
Newcastle United make the tickets available to members first and last season no tickets for the home match with Liverpool went on sale. So if say there are two of you and the Liverpool match is the only one you can get to, to get two tickets you’d have to pay the £30 membership fee (covers a year) and then £42 per ticket as well.
However, Newcastle United are selling tickets on the cheap to a group of people who aren’t season ticket holders or members of NUFC.
An organisation called CSSC has an allocation of tickets that they are selling for only £30 each, a full £12 cheaper and they don’t have to be members of Newcastle United.
The people who can get tickets through this CSSC are people such as civil servants, local government workers, teachers and the police.
We understand as well that this is not a one-off and members of CSSC have had cut price tickets for each match so far and can buy future home tickets for St.James’ Park.
The question has to be, why are Newcastle United undermining their own hardcore supporters and members, selling tickets on the cheap to this group of people? Especially when you know that it is guaranteed that many of these cut price tickets won’t even go to Newcastle fans, rather glory hunting north east based Liverpool ‘fans’.
