Local Newcastle Fans Disappointed With Stoke Sell-Out
Newcastle fans local to Stoke have been left disappointed after the Potters announced that tonight’s match is now sold out.
United had returned unsold tickets and it was anticipated that these would be made available via a cash turnstile at the away end on the night.
The stated capacity of Stoke’s Brittania Stadium is a touch under twenty eight thousand and taking segregation into consideration, the crowds against Aston Villa (27,478) and Leicester (27,500) were also basically sell-outs.
Stoke away on a Monday night is always going to be one of the tougher ones to sell out in terms of Newcastle’s away following, especially live on TV.
However, the club’s ongoing insistence on forcing Newcastle fans to pay £30 a season for a membership before you are allowed to buy a single away ticket, means that no doubt many United fans in the Stoke area will have missed out on a ticket for maybe the only match they’d be able to get to all season.
What you’d give for the chance to have the kind of following we had [intlink id=”48096″ type=”post”]back in 1995 for the midweek Cup match[/intlink], with between four and five thousand supporting the team.
