INFORMATION FROM BARNSLEY FC
Barnsley Football Club have advised that Newcastle United will not be able to acquire another additional allocation and there will be no cash turnstiles on the night.
In addition, away fans found in home areas risk ejection from the stadium.
The Tykes have also advised that alcohol sales at Oakwell will stop at kick-off and alcohol will not be served at half-time.
Supporters who buy concessionary tickets are asked to carry ID with them at the match. Any supporter purchasing at the incorrect age band risks non entry on matchday as upgrading at the visiting club is not necessarily permitted on the day.
Age bands away from home vary on a game-by-game basis and do not necessarily mirror your age band held at Newcastle United. It is essential that the correct age band is selected at the time of purchase to prevent any disappointment on the day at the visiting club.
For safety reasons any child under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult and sat next to them at the stadium.’
