It’s just mad as Newcastle v Wolves is selling out and home average now 50,000+
Newcastle v Wolves is now on the verge of selling out.
The positivity continues to flow despite the drop to the second tier, with Friday lunchtime bringing confirmation that there are only a few hundred tickets left for Saturday’s match.
You had better get in quick if you fancy going to see Rafa’s team attempt to make it seven wins in a row and six clean sheets on the bounce.
The Newcastle box office confirming that in the normal areas there are now only single tickets left, with the only tickets still available together being in the more expensive Platinum Club.
Wolves fans have sold out their full 3,200 ticket allocation and the scene is set for a great afternoon, with hopefully the team carrying on from where they left off on Tuesday night against QPR.
A total of 149,484 have attended the first three Championship games so far, at an average of 49,828. So already Newcastle are guaranteed to go above the 50,000 average tomorrow.
This means that NUFC is still well on course to be watched this season by more fans at home than all but five clubs in the whole of Europe (check out the stats HERE).
Saturday sees Manchester City as the only club in England who could potentially post a bigger crowd than the one at St James Park.
They claimed a 54,008 attendance in their last home Premier League match with West Ham despite as usual their being a sizeable number of empty seats – interesting to see what crowd figure they post tomorrow when Bournemouth visit. The PL leaders only attracting a crowd of thirty thousand for the Champions League in midweek despite beating rivals Man Utd at Old Trafford last weekend.
Thursday brought news that Newcastle fans had bought up the full allocation for Aston Villa, who have refused to sell any more to United supporters. Whilst Friday brought news of Barnsley tickets going on sale, the allocation being a healthy 5,500.
