Club refuse to sell Arsenal tickets to visiting ex-pat NUFC fan
I am a lifelong supporter, though now living in the USA.
I was a regular for years back in the day, was at all the Fairs Cup home matches in ‘69, Wembley in ’74, also the Arsenal defeat in the 90s.
Anyway, totally sick of the current regime, like the majority of fans.
Not sure what the future holds, unless we a super rich new owner comes along.
Unfortunately, I am back for my Mam’s funeral.
So I went to the ticket office this week and was told they could not sell me a ticket as I wasn’t a member!!!
This despite them admitting that there was at least a couple of thousand unsold tickets, with empty seats remaining in every stand.
Delta airlines will sell you tickets, not NUFC.
With all the many insults to people like Shearer and others, to have 50,000 customers is unbelievable.
They are making it very difficult to support the team. Newcastle fans do not deserve this.
Alan Oliver (no, not him)
(*** To try and force fans to buy season tickets or memberships, Mike Ashley announced that no tickets would be sold for the Sunderland, Manchester United and Arsenal home matches unless fans paid for a season ticket or a £35 membership.
So, despite Alan only being back for a brief visit to attend his mam’s funeral, he would have had to pay £35 for a year’s membership which would be no use to him for the other 364 days. This would have meant he’d have to spend a minimum of £71 (£35 membership and cheapest ticket £36) to go to the Arsenal game.
There were around two and a half thousand empty seats for the Manchester United match and it looks as though it will be a similar story tomorrow – usually the Arsenal game is guaranteed to be sold out. Shameful that a lifelong fan like Alan is stopped from going to the match when there will be empty seats.)
