First 10 away matches now sold out for Newcastle fans
Confirmation on Wednesday morning that Newcastle fans have now bought up the remaining tickets for the last of the first 10 away games this season.
Newcastle United have announced that the final handful of tickets have gone for both the Championship match at Leeds United and the League Cup quarter-final at Hull City.
The Leeds game is now officially a sell-out, with home fans having bought up all their tickets in advance of the news this morning.
However, a bit of a different story at Hull, where they have given the bare minimum number of tickets as stated by the competition rules – but with seemingly zero chance of getting close to selling the rest of the stadium to their own fans.
Newcastle fans were spoilt in October, as both Preston and Barnsley gave allocations that numbered over five and a half thousand for both.
Back down to earth now with confirmation of the Leeds and Hull sell-outs, whilst even more depressing was the news on Tuesday that Newcastle fans are only getting 2,002 tickets for Forest.
Newcastle United official announcement:
‘Newcastle United’s next two away fixtures, at Leeds United and Hull City, have both sold out.

United travel to Leeds’ Elland Road stadium for a 1.15pm kick-off in the Championship on Sunday, 20th November and 2,764 Newcastle supporters will be making the journey.
