The ‘Boycott Spurs’ campaign is gathering pace, certainly if you judge it by how much talk there is about it.

The cruch obviously comes on the actual day, are you in or out?

Whilst season ticket holders will have paid for their seat whether they use it or not, it looks like those who have already bought single tickets will be able to choose.

Checking out the terms and conditions of sale for home tickets at St. James’ Park, it appears that fans can get a refund just so long as they get the ticket back to the Newcastle United box office at leeast 72 hours before the Spurs kick-off a week on Sunday.

Which means that supporters with single tickets have a deadline of up to 4pm on Thursday 16 April to get their money back, rather than be stuck with a seat ticket that they might not now want to use.

This is what appears on the NUFC website:


4 Changes to Dates, Refunds & Exchanges

4.1 No guarantees can be given by the Club that the Match will take place at a particular time or on a particular date. Subject to clause 4.2, below, the Club reserves the right to reschedule any Match without notice and without any liability whatsoever.

4.2 In the event of the postponement or abandonment of the Match (or if the Match has, for any reason to be played out of view of the public), subsequent detail will be posted on . The Club will have no further liability whatsoever, including (but not limited to) any indirect or consequential loss or damage, loss of enjoyment or travel/accommodation costs.

4.3 In order to obtain a refund, the Home Match Ticket must be returned to the Club’s ticket office no later than 72 hours before the commencement of the match. A refund will only be issued on production of identification that the individual requesting the refund is the person to whom the Home Match Ticket was originally sold. For the avoidance of doubt, the final decision belongs to the ticket office manager.

    Sound consumer advice

    Great news get the council to bring back public executions in Leazes Park and get it over with.
    All true fans tickets still available online,by phone and from the box office.
    With T.V. rights for this game at £1m pounds and Spurs bringing near the full allocation hope you enjoy your day with the ducks.If you are a true fan get your mates to go to the game.

  • toon tony

    Maybe the “GALLOWGATE ” end as history shows public executions used to happen there. I know a couple of candidates we could start with. (If it can take his weight )

  • Demented_Man

    newcastle7 If only we could bring back hanging!  People like you would be among the first for the big drop if I had any say in the matter.  You could keep your hero Ashley company on the scaffold.

  • Little Davey

    newcastle7  Its a really sad day when all you are bothered about is the money Ashley will be making.
    Hope you enjoy yet another humiliation at the hands of spurs.
    Is it really too much to ask for a team that is capable of competing in the Premier League ?
    Are you really happy with the way things are ?

  • DavidDrape

    Time will tell who will get the last laugh Ashley or the fans? This should be one hell of a battle and at the moment ashley is winning but i wouldn’t be certain of ashley winning if the toon fans got there act together

  • gazchampion

    DavidDrape Hey, if only this would happen just to show the smug fcb… 
    It COULD happen but it seems unlikely because, as fans, we’re not United!
    I’m afraid  to admit it but Jabba WILL have the last laugh…all the way to the bank, as per usual! 
    Lavelly jabbelly!!

  • gazchampion

    newcastle7 do you work for the fcb or what???? 
    TRUE fans should be looking through this 5h1t situation we’re in and believe we have a future… but NUFC only has a future without ashley! 


  • A lex

    I think this refund clause reads like it is only relevant to the main section 4 title , ie a change to dates. But good luck with any requrst for a refund.

  • Andgeo

    True muppet! Sound like a lass.

  • Andgeo

    It’s the fact that the money he is making is at the expense of our team, life is short and we have lost the best part of 8 years of supporting Newcastle because of him.

  • No Brainer

    crowd will still be over 40,000

  • No Brainer

    gazchampion DavidDrape Maybe the fans who go are united,
    United in their support of the team.
    But then hardly any of the whingers on here go.

  • No Brainer

    Demented_Man newcastle7 Shows your mentallity, only a baying uncontrollable mob would put a demented man in charge of executions.

  • No Brainer

    Andgeo That means you would only be happy supporting a team that was in the top four our income doesn’t warrant that.

  • pissed off mag

    newcastle7  bet you vote tory as well you prick

  • John45

    At least someone had the sense to publicise this fact. It’s a notable absence in’s press release. A bit more planning and prior thought and a bit less rhetoric, and details like this wouldn’t get missed. Now if they could only realise that rather than gathering at the back of the ground before the game, it might be an idea to highlight the boycott at the points where most of the supporters will approach….

  • notmyplacetolaugh

    absolute mongs
    best support in country!!!!!
    boycouting after a few “poor” midtable seasons
    where do you delusional idiots think you should be
    try being the worst team in league history TWICE
    im only on this cos my mate is black n white daft n hes a proppa supporter btw and supports the team whether up or down
    most newcastle fans turn up just to cheer on the team they love
    the delinquents who preach this ashley out garbage are probably keeganites who were on the season ticket waiting list in the late nineties
    not ones who stood in 14000 crowds in the 80s and would sacrifice alot to have the chance to watch their team
    think alot of fans need to realise that football these days is not about loyalty or entertainment
    its about lining pockets the everyday fan will never come close to!
    yes im a sunderland fan and no i should not be commenting on a nufc site but i feel the small minded ashley out fools are putting a massive black mark on the REAL nufc fans who WILL turn out no matter the team, regime or table position

  • gazchampion

    No Brainer gazchampion DavidDrape
    you’re right there, No Brainer… I boycotted the match when the fcb started taking the p15s… the Keegan saga, renaming SJP, Joke In ‘Ere …and it just continues!  Ashley is taking us all the way but he gets none of my money!

  • gazchampion

    notmyplacetolaugh Hey man… you’re SO wrong!   True fans SHOULD be caring about the long term plan, even the very existence of wor club, which is WHY real fans who DO care about the club, want rid of ashley. We’re not just wingeing on here because of a few bad games and poor results, blah blah blah… he has turned our club into an embarrassment. NUFC is in long term trouble as long as he is in charge. 

    Anyhoo, you should just worry about your own lot.
