Newcastle put Barnsley away tickets on sale to general public as head for 5,500 sell-out
Barnsley away tickets have now gone on sale to all Newcastle fans, not just those with a season ticket or membership.
Many supporters had criticised the club for taking reduced allocations in past seasons rather than putting tickets on sale to the general public, after season ticket holders and members had had their fill.
However, the club recently pledged to change this if tickets were left unsold for certain games.
Newcastle have now confirmed that they have sold 4,700 Barnsley away tickets for the trip to Oakwell on a Tuesday night.
Around 800 remain out of the 5,500 ticket allocation and are now on sale to all fans, as per the information below.
Newcastle United announcement:
‘Tickets for Newcastle United’s Sky Bet Championship away game at Barnsley are now on general sale.
As promised in the most recent Newcastle United Fans Forum, the Club is giving all supporters the opportunity to purchase away tickets for selected games following a designated priority period for season ticket holders and members.
Tickets are now available on a first-come first-served basis, with a maximum of four tickets per person.
Rafa Benitez’s Magpies travel to Oakwell – a ground they haven’t visited since a 2-2 draw in December 2009 – on Tuesday, 18th October (7.45pm kick-off),
Around 800 tickets remain from an initial allocation of 5,500 seats.
Tickets are priced at £30 for adults, £22 for over-65s and 17-21 year-olds, £10 for under-17s, and £5 for under-12s (plus £1 admin fee).’
