Newcastle United Tickets Watch
There is a distinct lack of transparency around the prices of Newcastle United tickets these days.
Unlike other clubs that categorise tickets at the start of a season and publicise which opponents will fall into which category well in advance, Newcastle United keep their cards much closer to their chest.
The first that supporters know about ticket costs is when they go on sale game by game. Ask the box-office what you can expect to be paying before the tickets are on sale and you will not be given that information. Once a game has been played, the page on the club website selling them is removed and no record remains of what people paid to see that specific game.
This makes it very difficult for fans to make an informed decision as to whether a season ticket is right for them. One would assume the purchase of a season ticket would guarantee you’re paying less in the long run per game than those without a season ticket, but that doesn’t seem to necessarily be so. In the Gallowgate end a season ticket works out at £30.42 per game in 14/15, but Crystal Palace tickets have gone on sale to the public at £27. Man City tickets are available to members for £28 too.
In the absence of the information being publicised from within the club, in an effort to help fans like myself make an informed decision on the best approach to their ticket buying, I plan to collect the details and compare with season tickets in the same areas at every home league game at St James’ Park this season.
Here are the results so far;
Keep checking here at my own blog throughout the season, the more games we play, the clearer the overall comparisons will become.
